Lost in Translation has got a great soundtrack but the film is very much style over content, virgin suicides Air cd is better than the dreary film, About a boy is a great cd by Badly drawn Boy. A life less ordinary had a good soudtrack too. An american film called Judgment Night had a great hip hop meets metal soundtrack but the film was teeth gratingly bad.

Any others spring to mind?

I really rather like Lost In Translation, Virgin Suicides and About A Boy as it happens.

I tend to find that a good sundtrack greatly aids my enjoyment of a film so I can't think of anything that I've loved the music to without liking the film as well.

Percy - One of my favourite Kinks albums and definately worth checking out, but a terrible film. Relates the story of the first man to receive a successful penis transplant!!!

The Wedding singer has a cracking soundtrack, but that was a funny film though.

I totally agree with you Enid - I think that the soundtrack of a film is as important as the film itself and if they get it wrong...

Yes, one of Ray Davies best tunes. Unfortunately not often heard...

Velvet Goldmine. I didn't hate the movie, but it goes on for way too long and could have been cut down a bit. The soundtrack is absolutely brilliant, though - Roxy Music, Lou Reed, Brian Eno, T. Rex, Pulp, Ewan McGregor doing a great Iggy Pop impression, Thom Yorke sounding more like Bryan Ferry than Bryan Ferry does, etc.
