Fair, sometimes good movie ... toally awesome soundtrack:

Sabrina (Harrison Ford version)

Sting performing "Moonlight" :::happy sigh:::

ouch... PIMF should be "totally"

Forest Gump, Hair, Reality Bites, anything by John Hughes.

Last Action Hero

Megadeth, Alice in Chains, and... Tesla. Oh yeah..

South Pacific. I listened to it when I was in the Navy on a ship in the Pacific -- one of those old 8-track players, no less. I had never seen the movie, and fell in love with the soundtrack. When we finally got back to the States, I had a chance to see it and was never more disappointed with a movie in my life. What a lifeless piece of crud.

Now, now. I like both Hair and South Pacific very much.


It was first a stage play and I think it works wonderfully there, much better than the movie, though Ray Walston has never been topped in his role.

(full bias disclosure moment... I was in it in 1996, local theatre ... so much fun)

Spawn was great movie (well, maybe not great...). Very true to the comic. The budget was low, but even so...

Don't get me wrong, but the fight club soundtrack was awesome. not that fight club was a shitty movie, but if I had to play one for the rest of my life; the movie or the soundtrack; I'd go for soundtrack, it's awesome.

Garden State

I love the Garden State soundtrack, but the movie kicked its ass. One of the very best movies of last year.

The Matrix. I'm sure the same would hold true were they to make sequels of it. No, there are not Matrix sequels. Just like the Trek movies jumped directly from 4 to 6.

Cruel Intentions.

p.s. - i used to love garden state until the last time i watched it. it was then i discovered that andrew largeman (braff's character) may be the biggest stinking emo kid of all time. hes one step away from growing out a crappy beard, going to dashboard confessional concerts, and crying All. The. Time.

Straight to Hell. Soundtrack has Joe Strummer, Declan "I'm better known as Elvis Costello" McManus, The Pogues doing a countrified "If I Should Fall from Grace with God" and a cover of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". And Zander "Don't you remember The Circle Jerks?" Schloss.

The movie had Courtney Love. "Acting". Zander Schloss' song was the highlight. It's not a complete disaster of a film, but it's a really boring trainwreck in parts.

There's only one nominee:

"Times Square"

Nobody mentioned "The Big Chill"?

Candyman ok movie, great soundtrack.

Phillip Glass did the soundtrack. "It Was Always You Helen" is great and downloadable free at amazon.com

Surprised nobody mentioned "The Crow". I'll add it, then.

Bill & Ted II
Trick & Treat
Black Roses
Last Action Hero
