Judgement Night. Completely mediocre movie (arguably a bad movie) with hands down the best soundtrack ever.

    1. "Just Another Victim" Helmet and House of Pain
    2. "Fallin'" Teenage Fanclub and De La Soul
    3. "Me, Myself, & My Microphone" Living Colour and Run DMC
    4. "Judgment Night" Biohazard and Onyx
    5. "Disorder" (Medley of 3 Exploited songs: "War", "UK '82", and "Disorder") Slayer and Ice-T
    6. "Another Body Murdered" Faith No More and Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.
    7. "I Love You Mary Jane" Sonic Youth and Cypress Hill
    8. "Freak Momma" Mudhoney and Sir Mix-A-Lot
    9. "Missing Link" Dinosaur Jr. and Del tha Funkee Homosapien
    10. "Come and Die" Therapy? and Fatal
    11. "Real Thing" Pearl Jam and Cypress Hill

Cowboy bebop is definitely on the list. Who can resist tank! when it plays?

I really love the scott pilgrim soundtrack, but I don't know if it would qualify as best. The new tron movie I am optimistic about the soundtracks; It is scored by daft punk after all.

Cowboy Bebop for sure.

The soundtracks from both Trigun and the original Helsing series are great.

I'm also digging the soundtrack for the latest Bleach arc, Hueco Mundo/arrancar/whatever.

Oh yes, Bleach has a pretty good soundtrack in general, and the latest arc has some really good tracks.

Some OSTs I have on my PC (excluding game-related ones):
Soul Eater
Amelie
Battlestar Galactica
Cowboy Bebop
Departues
Evangelion
Giant Robo (AWESOME soundtrack)
Studio Ghibli stuff
Juno
Mirrormask
Kill Bill
Paprika
Samurai Champloo
Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. I mean, seriously, even the soundtrack is filled with awesome. The only reason I'm not playing it right now is because my flatmate is asleep and I can't hear that song without REALLY cranking up the volume.

Thank you Zohar, this needed to be posted. Here's another favorite of mine. Unfortunately, I can't listen to it without getting an irresistible urge to watch TTGL again, which is a bad thing to have during midterm season...

Yet another vote for Cowboy Bebop. I also have Tank! and The Real Folk Blues on my mp3 player, but I haven't tired of either one.

A few others:

The Lion King
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Disney)
Star Wars (original trilogy)
Harry Potter movies
The Prince of Egypt

Blade Runner - particularly the end title music, but it's all great. A Clockwork Orange. Gattaca - The Other Side is really beautiful. Princess Mononoke. Good Bye Lenin! - I haven't even seen the film, but still listen to the soundtrack every now and then. I don't like all of the music of Brokeback Mountain, but the original score part is really great with the guitar and strings.

Cowboy Bebop for sure. I always rock out to "Tank!" whenever it comes on... if it's possible to "rock out" to a jazz song.

I'd also go with numerous songs on the Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex soundtracks. I absolutely love Yoko Kanno songs performed by Origa. Origa has such a wonderful voice.

Allergy to subtitles in film audiences. Also, he meant a soundtrack which was done specifically for the US release of the film, not that there's a US remake of The Big Blue (though granted doing a whole new soundtrack is a bit pointless).

They did change some scenes and the ending is different too.

Same thing is true about The Neverending Story, different soundtrack and a couple of scenes different.

I've always thought of the music for Cowboy Bebop as a fusion of Jazz, Funk, Rock, R&B, and a couple of other genres. Although in reality the music style matches the episode.

Two other favorites would have to be the soundtracks to Howl's Moving Castle and Spirited Away. I love the waltz-like music in HMC.

Scrubs has a really great soundtrack, even if it's kind of huge. The first six seasons have just over 200 songs. (Depressing song is depressing.)

And everything Bear McCreary does is awesome, so Battlestar Galactica, most of Caprica, Sarah Connor Chronicles, and The Walking Dead (so far).

EDIT: It's a video game, but Shadow of the Colossus has some of the most epic songs ever.

Roswell title credits song (Here With Me) introduced me to Dido, and I liked Dido ever since...

I like the soundtrack Cowboy Beebop too, though by a small margin, I like The Real Folk Blues a bit more than Tank! And the song at the finale, Blue, had a great emotional impact on me when I saw the ending.

Oh...and speaking of anime, I really love One More Time, One More Chance, the soundtrack to Byousoku 5cm. I think like Blue, hearing that song while watching the movie increased the emotional impact of that song....*sniff*

I love the music from Lion King, Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Prince of Egypt. Also, Far and Away - I've never actually seen it, but the music is really good.

Also, I'm not sure if this technically counts, but anything from Les Miserables.

This is the perfect thread for me, because I listen to soundtracks a lot, probably more than regular musicians/bands. There's something about tying music to another experience that makes it more memorable and enjoyable to me.

As far as animé are concerned, I really enjoy listening to the old Fullmetal Alchemist soundtrack. The newer one is good too. I really like stuff Yoko Kanno makes, including the Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell SAC. Mononoke also has some good tracks. //hack.sign and Eureka Seven also have enjoyable soundtracks but they can get a little too old a little too fast. Joe Hisaishi is good too, I'm referring to the soundtracks he wrote for Miyazaki's films, but lately I've grown less fond of him. Also, FLCL! I love that music. I used to like the music from Naruto and Neon Genesis Evangelion, but lately not so much. Maybe I've outgrown them? I guess the songs from Death Note are rather nice too. Finally, Beyond the Clouds was a good little movie with a really good soundtrack.

From films, In Bruges has amazing music. I feel like I can listen it constantly and I will never get bored (disclaimer: haven't actually risked that). The soundtrack of Waking Life is perfect, too good for words. Pan's Labyrinth's music also strikes me as beautiful, although truth to be told, I listen to it less and less. In addition, the soundtracks from Tarantino films are always refreshing, especially Kill Bill. Donnie Darko is good too, but I don't really recommend it for a casual listen. On a somewhat obscure note, I always seem to enjoy the music of Kieślowski's films, Three Colors: Blue especially comes to mind. From TV series, one word: Dexter.

Now, game soundtracks. I love Kyle Gabler's stuff, the music from World of Goo is just lovely. Mark Morgan's Fallout stuff is particularly haunting. The music he wrote for Planescape: Torment is also very good. Koji Kondo's Legend of Zelda tunes are unforgettable. I also enjoy some of Valve's music occasionally, mostly tracks from the Half-Life 2 episodes and sometimes Left 4 Dead 1 too. On a somewhat obscure note, does anyone else like the music from Perimeter? I listen to it fairly often and I'm not even sure why I like it so much. Oh, and before I forget, some of the tunes from the Earthbound series are really nice; they give me that nostalgic feeling. There's also a little free indie game called Knytt Stories, the music of which I'm really fond of.

Amelie, the soundtrack to that movie has the power to make me happy when I'm at my lowest. Also, I'm guessing the only reason that Ennio Morricone hasn't been mentioned is that it would be too obvious, at least I sincerely hope so. "The Ecstasy of Gold" is just one of many examples of how amazing Ennie Morricone is.

[edit] My apologies thicknavyrain, I didn't notice that you'd mentioned The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly already.
