Gladiator
Armageddon
Transformers
Star Wars

"I like really great symphonic type movie soundtracks best."

I don't like any "best" but here are two I really like, one for climski2

And one for zBrown, both from Kubrick's High Tide and Green Grass era.

If you can't get behind regimentation it
can only be attributable to human error.

Call me a wussie, and perhaps I miss some of the 1960s pop, but I love the soundtrack on The Dish, although there are some good contenders posted by other above thread.

It's funny how the music in a soundtrack gets stuck in your head vs from just listening to music, the visuals and the music combined must make more neural connections or something. Jingy- I was just thinking about snatch... that song by massive attack, couldn't even remember the name of the song or artist, but I could sure remember the scene, bratt pitt all pissed off in front of the flames.

all good nominations, honestly quite a few movies I haven't seen, I'll have to check them out!

As for Tarantino, don't even get me started, though he has more dough than I do. QT is a tosser.

 Yeah, but in this case the song has stuck with me since I bought the album/cd Been a Massive fan for a little while.. I think it was when I found out that there was a production connection between Portishead, Massive and Tricky figured if I liked the one I could like the others, though Tricky is an acquired liking. Massive Attacks "Blue Lines" hooked me and i never turned back.

Another thing about that soundtrack solidifying a sound or mood.. That seems to be a big deal for me. Almost like the soundtrack can make an OK movie completely worth another watch, at least that's it for me

Any Guy Richie movie should have a memorable score to go with it.
