Am I the only one who goes to the cinema to listen to some music? I even go for sh** films, just because I am interested in the music.......which explains why I saw two Dicaprio films (R+J and the Beach) :lol: I'm not really a cinema lover but if the director makes music his/her priority then he/she gets my vote.

Lately I bought the OST of Chicago which is absolutely awsome and I am desperately looking for the OST of "O invasor" a Brazilian film, the English title is "The Trespassers" if I remember well, that soundtrack must be amazing because it fit so well in the film, and Sabotage is a great rapper. I remember wathcing teh film and telling myself "I want the sountrack". if anyone can help me on that one, thanks :) ....and it's a very good movie too!

Anyway I was just wondering if there were other freak of the kind out there, and if you had some recommendations ;)

I think the music is one of the most important things, as being both music and movie freak. The movie is not complete without the music.

There are different types of soundtracks. There is score - that sounds in the movie, and also song compilation - sons that were not written especially for the movie, but chosen in order to suit the scenes.

A very good example for original score is Gladiator - man that really was an opera, like Ridley Scott said. Or LOTR original score by Howard Shore, the Oscar awarded.

And concerning the other type of soundtracks - the one that consists of songs by diferent artists - I like the Matrix soundrack - this totally rocks! Marylin Manson for example. I have this one.
Ah, and also the Coyote Ugly soundtrack - great one! Amazing compilation, including this INXS song - I Need You Tonight.

I can't come up with others right now, but I'll tell you L! :)

You're totally right Claire. I for one prefer the compilation type, but sometimes the songs were written just for the film like for "About a boy" the whole soundtrack was written by Badly Drawn Boy just for the film (excellent ost!!) then he brought out his own album (excellent Album "Have you fed the fish")

One of my fave is also the ost for "Cruel Intention".......All the artists I LOVE (Blur, Fatboyslim, Placebo, Skunk Anansie, Faithless....etc....:wub:) My favourite songs of this album are Counting Crows "Color blind" and day one "Bedroom dancing"......I love them all really :D

Oh, L, you are soooo right! Aand you reminded me of this Cruel Intentions soundtrack that is so good. I have it. These are really one of my favourites... you don't know how much I die for British Alternative... mmm... I think Richard Ashcroft is one of the best artists existing....

Do you like About a Boy? I love the movie and the ducks... I think the music was a big part of it, I mean it played a great part... Strange, Hught Grant reminds me of movies with good music!

you always have the right picks! ;)


Ha - does anyone remember in American Pie - that scene when "Celebrity Skin" by Hole was being played? :lol: exactly the right time!


P.S. CCC - who played in Dumb and Dumber? I don't remeber, cause I watched it long time ago.

Actually Claire, I only knew about teh soundtrack because I love Badly Drawn Boy, but after reading your post I rented it, and I must say it is brilliant!! I love it, and yeah music is definately very important. I just loved the film, thanks a lot Chica! :wub:

Another soundtrack I love is the music for "High Fidelity", it is brilliant, and that's also a great movie.....I remember watching it with my ex-boyfriend, I had just dumped him and I was stuck in his house because of a bloody storm outside.......the film is about a guy who's dumped by his girl, he's a music freak and a loser too..:lol: :lol: quite an embarrassing situation. :rolleyes:

OMG! Laura, just don't tell me that you love "HIgh Fidelity", too! You have no idea that "High Fidelity" is the movie that exactly corresponds to my inner condition! I totally identify with the character, I've watched it about I don't know how many times ... oh, I think it's genius and still so many people do not understand it... it's about geeks... I'm the same like this character - but I do it with movies, like he does with the records... oh, heaven! Wsn't the script based on Nick Hornby novel, just like "About a Boy'? If I remember correctly, this man should be a genius. And about the duck movie (this is my nick for About a Boy) - it's my #1 movie of the year, I think it is brilliant and it was a cure for my tortured soul. All the people who were involved in it - God bless them!

L, I really do not get it - how you always have the right picks! Are you reading my mind or something? :thinking:


Hey, and Crazy - do you happen to own the movie's DVD? Cause I would be delighted to happen somebody else who loves Jim Carrey! ;)

No I don't have the dvd but it's on my list of things to buy along with many other things :rolleyes: but I do LOVE Jim Carrey. I almost hated him after I saw the Cable Guy but I couldn't stay mad at him for long :D I can't wait to see his new movie "Bruce Almighty"-it looks hilarious!

Yep, you don't have to translate! It's just that I'm a movie geek. It's great. As I have said thousands of times, Geekland is cooler than the place which the "normal" people inhabit.


Go on Crazy! I also can't wait for the new Jim Carey movies. I think he was unique in all he did. I was so mad at people when they said he was a talent just after "Man on the Moon" came out. Like "Ace Ventura" never existed. Come on! He doesn't need anyone's approval. I personally like "Ace Ventura" a lot. :lol:

I think that the triology is too important. A good movie with a bad soundtrack get a lot of disapointment. I loved Cruel Intentions soundtrack, one of the best I have seen.

Aha! I just saw this! I love it - sacrifice yourself to hear the good music! You should see some more DiCaprio movies, cause there are a few more with good music, except those! ;) ( I love the Dario G song from the Beach)

I love The Beach soundtrack, oh what I wouldn't do for the love of music :shrug:

Now that I think of it, I've seen many films featuring that person, more than I thought...let me think, I saw The Beach (love Boyle)
R+J (love Shakespeare, was curious to see a modern version)
Total Eclipse (love Rimbaud)
What's Eating Gilbert Grape (probably the best of his film)
Titanic (please, don't ask me why :cry: )

and that's about it..oh no, The Man in The Iron Mask because it's adapted from a Frehcn novel, was curious again...GEEZ!! So many films, I could almost be mistaken for a fan! :blink: :sprint:

:lol: I have to say I also have the ost for Titanic, can't resist celtic sounds......that's one of the reasons why I love Edinburgh, every now and then you hear the sound of the bagpipes, and with the famous Edinburgh wind, you can hear it from a long distance and never know where the player is until you see that bloke in kilt playing round the corner those famous tunes....I love the sound of the bagpipes :wub: ......and I don't want to leave Scotland :cry:

well i've seen all leo's movies and i have the OST of Romeo and Juliet and Basketball Diaries. i love those two OSTs. but i'll never ever buy the titanic OST. 'my heart will go on' hurts my ear so much. :D

i dig OSTs of teen movies and some action films because it mostly has rock/alternative songs in it. i love that kind of stuff! :wub:

hey L! you're returning to France now?

L, you're ready for a fan! Come directly to the LDC board! (Hint: It's funny! ;) )

Mes raisons:
The Beach - I love Boyle, too (Mmm - Trainspotting!)
R+J - Sheakspeare must be mad to Baz Luhrman!
Total eclipse - I like Verlaine
Gilbert Grape - Oscar taste!
Titanic - :cry: - it's marvelous!
The Man in The Iron Mask - Hm, Jeremy Irons as musketeer...

You should also see Marvin's Room, probably, I liked the music there. It's original score.

who's on the Basket Ball Diaries ost? I really don't like action films unless they have more than stunts and Mister muscle to rest on, I want a good story and good acting, and great music.

I have to say Brazilian films ALWAYS have a great soundtrack to it, I mean I fell in love with two of them, but only found one at teh shop. Apart from Bossa Nova and Samba which I really love, I have to say they also have good rock and good rap stuff. That "O Invasor" soundtrack was awesome, so pissed off I can't lay my hands on a copy!! :steaming:

Claire, you know my favourite poem is by Verlaine!!! He's not my favourite poet, but it is my all times favourite simply because it is the only poem I remeber of all the poems I learnt as a child..........."les sanglots long des violons de l'automne, blessent mon coeur d'une langueur monotone"......Oh my god, love this line!!! :wub:

I could try to translate it, but it'd be a sin. Sorry :(
I can't resist, here's a bit more...

Chanson d'Automne

Les sanglots longs
Des violons
De l'automne
Blessent mon coeur
D'une langueur
Monotone.

Tout suffocant
Et blême, quand
Sonne l'heure,
Je me souviens
Des jours anciens
Et je pleure;

Et je m'en vais
Au vent mauvais
Qui m'emporte
De çà, de là,
Pareil à la
Feuille morte.

Oh, Verlaine, je prefere! C'est un grand poet francais! OK, enough with my ambitions with French. I wanted to say that I like his stuff, but I can't tell you the title of my favourite poem, cause my friend borrowed my book (she studies french and they study it in the original). I love to ead this nevermind I get only 75% of it. I think it was a poem about nature... That's why for me it was important to watch the movie, cause I thought throughotu the whole book, that he writes his poems about a woman, and if he had this relationship with Rimbaud, it would turn out he was his inspiration! I still haven'ty figured that out.

Oh, oh, always off-topic! Sorry! It was about the soundtracks! I'm just awful, am I not? Ah, and cutie, The Basketball Diaries is about an American writer, who was a drug addict as a teenager but then changed his way of living and wrote this book about his own life story. It's absolutely great, I think. Better than Woodie Allen (and I love Woodie Allen)

Wasn't basket Ball Diaries about the life or River Phoenix? I could be wrong though.

For Total Eclipse, I was so angry at the end of the film!! That stupid director missed the whole point, all she focused on was the fact that both poets were homosexual. She didn't focus on the poetry and the influence they had on each other poetry-wise, nothing. I think she is so stupid! That film really pissed me off, the only good aspect was Leo and David's performance, they both were great.....Oh and I cannot stand Romane Boringer, I think she is one of the worst French actresses, seriously!

Other than the lead actors and the scenery, the film was crap.

About music in films, do you like the music in disney films? I think Lilo and Stich's music was absolutely ace....and also in The Emperor's New Groove....I don't know how many times I watched this one and I think I'll never get enough of it!!

You're so right! They didn't concentrate on the poetry part that interested me. Of course that's it when Americans try to interefere with French culture. Which actress do you mean? Who did she play? The guys did great. Is david French? He is in the new Harry Potter movie, btw.


P.S. The character from Basketball Diaries was Jim Carrol (I think that's the spelling) and they adapted it from his autobiographical novel, that's what I remember (it was long time ago ;) )

Ha, I think the music from animated movies is always great! Esp, all Disney clasics like Beauty and The Beast and The Lion King. I think most of the power of the movie The Lion King is actually built on the music they used. Didn't see Lilo and Stitch (eh!) but I heard Elvis in the movie's trailer, and I'm sure it was all Hawaian ( I judge from the background) ;)

yeah, the Hawaiian bit were soooo good. I really want to get that one....and you shoudl watch lilo and Stitch, it's really good....but I still prefer the Emperor's New Groove B)

I also like music of TV series, I have one of Ally McBeale and one of Buffy which I really like, I had bought it just for K's Choice but in the end it's an excellent album!!

They are the only TV music I bought, I'm not too keen on the idea of getting more but if you've any good recommendation, feel free :D
