Soundtracks, or scores? The two aren't the same to me. Soundtrack is something like The Crow, which features numerous bands who record songs for it. Scores are written by composers.

Hans Zimmer wins the latter for numerous films — The Rock, The Last Samurai, Tears of the Sun Inception, etc.

Runner up is Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for The Social Network.

Thats an excellent soundtrack. Another awesome one is Spawn, everysong was written for the movie and its one metal/rock band teamed up with an industrial/dj. Its pretty good.

They're the same thing to me, but this will include both.

In college I used to take "Braveheart Naps".. basically just put on the soundtrack and fall asleep to it.. It was so relaxing.

For me, that's not even a question. Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amelie Poulain, written by Yann Tiersen.

It's a movie that, as a teenager, I couldn't help but love. It's romantic, not a moment of evil, but many moments of minor sadness, but even greater joy. This movie will, as some comments on Youtube, make you believe that in the end, any dream is valuable and could come true. Or you will find it annoying, odd, too French and strange.

Any other fans? :)

There were a lot of great choices on that soundtrack. Definitely added to that movie.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall has a great soundtrack. It has More Than Words, Nothing Compares to You, These Boots Were Made for Walking and Everybody Hurts in Hawaiian, plus Dracula's Lament and Inside of you by Infant Sorrow.

Queen of the Damned also has a great Soundtrack and Score. The score and the songs from the movie were all written by Jonathan Davis.

You are all wrong because these are the best in no particular order, all absolutely fantastic, do yourself a favor and listen to all of them, the whole songs. Leave behind any feelings you have about the specific movies and just listen to the music. Cheers.

Trainspotting... so good there had to be two of them... for a more traditional type it's hard to beat Star Wars or the Ennio Morricone stuff.

I do want to see them, but I never have time to watch anything. I finally just saw The Davinci Code a couple of months ago, and I had DVR'd it like 3 years ago.

Since we are on the topics of film, how about we discuss the best original soundtracks? When I say original score, I mean composed for the film. This would rule out examples such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Amadeus, since all music used was already written. Once again, to put them in order is nearly impossible.

Gods and Generals (John Frizzell and Randy Edelman)
Gettysburg (Randy Edelman)
Braveheart (James Horner)
There Will Be Blood (Johnny Greenwood)
Star Wars (John Williams)
Indiana Jones (John Williams)
Dances with Wolves (John Barry)
Spartacus (Alex North)
The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (Ennio Morricone)
Glory (James Horner)
The Alamo- 1960 (Dmitri Tiomkin)
The Alamo- 2004 (Carter Burwell)
The Ninth Gate (Wojciech Kilar)
McQ (Elmer Bernstein)
Zulu (John Barry)

More to come as I remember them LOL...

Most soundtracks with songs produced by Hans Zimmer and John Williams are very good.

Give this a shot. Classic 70's jazz from Elmer Bernstein:

Sounds nice. It has that classic secret agent kind of tune to it. Kind of like one of those James Bond or classic Batman songs.

Probably the best part of the film. John Wayne was alright, but out of place in a cop movie.

John Wayne will always be a Western film actor. I don't like watching any of his non-Western films. They just don't seem right.

Some are actually very good, but you are right. He will always be the western icon.

"Get Shorty" is a very tasty soundtrack.

Also, "This is Spinal Tap" has some classics

American Pie 2...best soundtrack ever!

The Sandlot is a close second.
