    Clint Mansell & Gustavo Santaolalla are the masters of the soundtrack in my opinion.

  • my favourite movie soundtracks have to be juno, 500 days of summer, a clockwork orange, the virgin suicides and jennifer's body. my favourite tv series soundtracks are grey's anatomy and skins.

    smoke crack and worship satan
  • the garden state, reservoir dogs, pulp fiction, into the wild, trainspotting, starter for 10, the boat that rocked, this is england

    Look at that. "Accident Blackspot"? These aren't accidents. They're throwing themselves into the road gladly. Throwing themselves into the road to escape all this hideousness.

    Until The End Of The World. I've never seen the movie and have no idea what it's about, other than, well, the end of the world. But I picked up the soundtrack at a thrift store because it happened to have a lot of artists I like on it (Talking Heads, Nick Cave, REM, Elvis Costello, etc. It's a good listen for a rainy day.
    Dazed And Confused
    First Love Last Rites. oddly enough, another movie I've never actually seen - the soundtrack is done by one of my favorite bands, Shudder To Think, with lots of guest vocalists.
    Coraline. I don't actually own this, but I've got to get it sometime - the score was one of my favorite things about the movie

    Someone else said Twin Peaks already, and I've got to agree
    Polaris - Music From The Adventures Of Pete And Pete
    The Venture Brothers (I've honestly only seen a few episodes of the show, but the music is so great I had to hunt this down)

    Video Games:
    Katamari Damacy

    Anything Enio Morricone
    Godfather trilogy

    Though to be modern, the Lord of the Rings films had glorious soundtracks, as did the originally composed music for Donnie Darko and Let the Right One in. As compilations go, you have to say Quentin Tarantino knows what he's doing with Pulp Fiction being my personal favourite.

    Special mention to Highway, which had one hell of a Desert soundtrack.

    Sayonara, not to be confused with cyanide, which is, of course, goodbye in any language.
