One of my favorite movies is "Local Hero" for its quirky and beautiful soundtrack. Lawrence of Arabia is another (though the scenery and acting is remarkable, too).


What movies do you recommend that have great soundtracks, excluding concerts and musicals?

I've always loved the score for Conan The Barbarian. Jerry Goldsmith's Alien score was great, even if it borrowed a lot from Aram Khachaturian. Recently I was very impressed with The Others- especially when you take into account it was written by the director!

Jurassic Park. Brilliant score by Williams - the first scene with Bronciosaurus and the chopper ride to the island is burned in my mind.


Jaws. Another Williams. Classic.


Keeping The Faith. Great songs.


Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Tan Dun & Yo-Yo Ma got it damn right.


Heart & Souls (when will Universal release an Ultimate Edition of this?) Fun, fun soundtrack.


Almost Famous. Rock on!


The Dish. Time-travel trippy.


Se7en. Fu+kin' haunting & creepy.


Apollo 13. Goosebumpy.


The Matrix. Kick ass.


The Sound Of Music, West Side Story and a few others - classic.


American Beauty. Dreamy yet powerful.


Speed. Instantly recognizable.


Hedwig And The Angry Inch. "One day in the late mid-80s, I was in my early late 20s. I had just been dismissed from university after delivering a brilliant lecture on the aggresive influence of German philosophy on rock and roll entitled, "You, Kant, Always Get What You Want.""
