Gattaca
Code 46

Not because they will be remembered as great soundtracks on their own but because they work well and enhance these great movies.

Remember the Titans
Because it was full of some of my favorite music from that time.

I dropped the coloring because it was unreadable to me.

Hope that doesn't offend.

Yes, one of the only soundtracks I went out and bought on CD; it was tied up with licensing issues for over a decade after the movie was in cinemas.

Cowboys and Aliens


This is one of the few lower-rated movies I love (guilty pleasure?) The soundtrack is quite good as well although not with any memorable themes.

My addition to the list:
Cinema Paradiso (aka Nuovo Cinema Paradiso)

The film and its soundtrack are both masterpieces, if you can handle subtitles (or understand Italian.) Bravo, Ennio Morricone. Avoid the dubbed version... it's atrocious IMHO.

So many great one, but my choices are a bit more contemporary and slightly twisted.
Guardians of the Galaxy
Mama Mia 2
Grease
Phantom of Paradise
and the usual suspect
Casablanca
