  1. Brett Schewitz Says:

    you have two tarantino soundtracks. let me just say that music in tarantino films is just as much of the characters as the, err, characters are? great choices

    empire records – stellar movie and stellar soundtrack. the fact that i spent my youth working in CD store made it even more enjoyable, even if working in a CD store isn’t REALLY like empire records.

    never seen dazed and confused but the soundtrack looks great

    i bought the cruel intentions soundtrack soon after i saw the movie. i loved it. one day i stopped loving it and gave it to a friend who would love it more. i regret it. she still loves it though.

    the life aquatic soundtrack was weird.. not too much of a fan. david bowie rocks though.

    lost in translation was, well, lost on me. never liked the movie. never bothered with the soundtrack.

    eddie vedder rocks. into the wild is great.

  2. The Burg Says:

    has Dazed & Confused aired recently in the US or something? sheesh so many visits to this older post….weird..
