I'm probably way in the minority, and I'm not going to defend it as a great film or anything, but I laughed my head off when I saw Magical Mystery Tour recently. Might just be my sense of humor.

I like the Beatles a bit more than the Boys of Beach, I think Brian's band is the tops---really amazing. And finally, I'm liberal. That's it.

2001: A Space Odyssey
A Clockwork Orange
Once Upon A Time In The West
Mean Streets----great use of pop songs, as elsewhere in Scorsese's stuff

There must be more but those four come readily to mind...

[Later]
Carrington----Michael Nyman and a dash of Schubert
More and La Vallée----not least, but by means not only, because they necessarily don't have Mr Waters'----dare I say it?----cynicism splashed all over them
Koyaanisqatsi and particularly Powaqqatsi----music by Philip Glass

I must confess to not actually having seen the last four films----for which my apologies----I just love the music.

That excerpt from Morricone's music for Mission to Mars is simply stunning...

Currently digging the Pirate Radio soundtrack.

Lotsa great mid-60s hits -- but I tried to watch this flick on DVD the other day.  Made it about half way -- very disappointing.  Also a few anachronisms such as "Jumping Jack Flash" in 1966!  Nonetheless, when the BBs play ("Little saint Nick"), it's a good movie for a few minutes.

I still have to check that one out. I'm not much into movies or TV anymore, so when I do watch I make sure it's worth it - thus I've been putting off Pirate Radio because of the iffy reviews.

I think I`m partial to that movie becausd I was a radio/mass communication major and frequently on-air in college. I`m bugged more by Phillip Seymour Hoffman holding the mic and putting it right on his mouth (he must be a fan of unessecary noise and distortion/overmodulation) than by the filmmakers` song choices.

I found this film to be terrible. One of the biggest disappointments I've experienced in recent years only because I actually thought the film would be about the pirate radio station(s) that operated outside of London in the 60s. Instead, it is simply PORKY'S on a boat. If the storyline about trying to get a teenager laid sounds good to you (and you can stomach Kenneth Branagh calling out for "Mr. Twatt" repeatedly like a tiresome schoolboy), then maybe you'll have some laughs. I think the cast is great, but they're given very little here that's amusing.

The musical anachronisms go way beyond "Jumpin' Jack Flash"; one of the DJs actually plays a Cat Stevens' song from 1970 even though you're reminded at the film's end that the events shown all take place in 1966.

I didn't make it to the Cat Stevens song!  Anyway, you nailed it "Porky's on a boat."  I am a big radio fan, particularly concerning renegade voices and forbidden music, and this really had nothing to do with any of that.  Rote, by the numbers, etc.

At the very least, Pirate Radio hopefully introduced a new generation of kids to cool 60s music.

'Dances With Wolves' is another movie with a great score.
As is 'The Last Of The Mohicans' - and unfortunately I don't think they released the original score.

Anyone here watch 'In The Shadow Of The Moon'? That movie has an incredible soundtrack - one of the best I've heard.

Almost Famous had a nice soundtrack.   And The Blues Brothers soundtrack wasn't too shabby either.  Are these choices too obvious? 

The Coen Brothers  film Serious Man used  nearly the entire Surrealistic Pillow album as part of the soundtrack.  I found that amusing.

- AI - John Williams - I could hardly believe this was him when I saw the credits--I usually associate him with more over the top, blockbuster themes, but this was really subtle and beautiful--really helped make the movie work.

Same here. Standard Williams only works for me about 40% of the time, but his AI score was very restrained and haunting.


The DVD-Audio 5.1 version is very nice in surround. It also plays on most standard DVD players.

Slightly OT, but the 4th disc of the Randy Newman boxset contains highlights from his film scores, and they're incredible

I think the mighty NRBQ contributed to both "The Simpsons" and "Spongebob".

I was wondering if Almost Famous was too obvious as well. I'm not a fan of the songs written specifically for the movie, but the choice of songs used throughout the movie is fantastic. I wasn't a fan of "Tiny Dancer" until I saw the movie, but it was so well-used that  it made me reevaluate my opinion of Elton John.

Eternal Sunshine, by Jon Brion, with a few rock tracks thrown in.

Also:
I Heart Huckabees, by Jon Brion - better than the film itself!

But wait:
West Side Story
2001
Clockwork Orange
Vacation (just for cheesy fun)
A Christmas Story - hard to find but totally worth it
