What's your favorite movie soundtrack. I don't know if this one's my favorite, but I enjoy the BASEketball soundtrack.

Yes BASEketball is a very good movie, Matt and Trey rule, but I'm going to go with Batman for best soundtrack (Keep in mind I'm going by which soundtrack adds most to it's respective movie). Danny Elfman did a wonderful job with the orginal score, if only it didn't have those songs by Prince in it.

Second I'm going with SouthPark the movie, third, the  Star Wars series.

TRON had such a great soundtrack. I always enjoy music by Wendy Carlos.(Even if he/she is a little strange)

EDIT: BTW, I own the BASEketball soundtrack. Great stuff.

Can't believe I forgot to mention. Titan A.E had a great soundtrack, half of the reason the movie is so great is the music.

My only gripe with Williams is that he seems to be running out of material. Listen to the Harry Potter soundtrack, and apart from the very good main theme, you'll find much of it to be derivative of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and most of all, Jurassic Park.

I've got The Phantom Menace Ultimate Soundtrack with every tiny bit of music that was in the movie. It's pretty sweet ass.

Donnie Darko, because I absolutely love the Liquid Spear Waltz. As well as the others, it's just my favorite.

My favorite is Manipulated Living (aka Frank the Rabbit's theme), closely followed by Middlesex Times and Time Travel. But the Liquid Spear Waltz is great too.  smile

The pop soundtrack is also awesome.  big grin

I know this sounds kinda stero-typical of me but. I enjoyed the Kill Bill soundtrack. The 5-6-7-8's were on there and there were some excellent bamboo orchastreal reed tracks in there, and the technoish japenese blood pumping fight music was top notchish.

Tracks 3, 7 and 16 (Minas Tirith, Ride of the Rohirrim and The End of All Things, respectively) on the LOTR: Return of the King soundtrack give me chills in the very best way. Especially the choral piece in #3... just chills, man. Chills.

I would have to say Glory.  I was pretty blown away by this soundtrack when I was younger and Forest Gump. 

I thought Blade was pretty good but then I bought the album and thought it was pretty crap.  I think that rave scene in the meat packing plant was just awesome when the dj dropped the bass. But that was the only track.

The soundtrack to Bladerunner is something of a classic for electronic music, but I'm surprised that no one has brought up 24 Hour Party People, which certainly features some of the best music of the last couple of decades.

In the beginning the Universe was created.  This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

The Tarzan soundtracks in whatever language are the best. Argh...they just give me goosebumps whenever I listen to "Two Worlds".
I also really like the Schindler´s list and all of the LOTR soundtracks.
