movie soundtracks

Garden State has an amazing script, but come on, how many of us saw it because we heard (or heard of) the soundtrack before we ever knew the plot?? Yeah. So here's a recommendation:

See Wicker Park.

Stick with it, because it's slow starting. I'm still not convinced as far as the script goes (and it's an adaptation of L'Appartement, and foreign films are usually best left alone). I didn't see it in the theatres because it seemed like a contrived, predictable teen thriller...but happened to see it this week and was rather surprised at what I found.

If you see and hate it, fine, blame me. But hey, if nothing else, let the soundtrack convince you (and this is only a partial listing, sorry):

Maybe Tomorrow - Stereophonics
Everybody Is Someone - Lifehouse
A Movie Script Ending - Death Cab for Cutie (acoustic)
How to Be Dead - Snow Patrol
Lover's Spit Broken Social Scene
Retour a Vega - Stills
When I Goosestep - The Shins
These Days - Mates of State
Against All Odds (Take a Look at Me Now) - The Postal Service
Strange & Beautiful (I'll Put a Spell on You) - Aqualung
I Know You Are But What Am I - Mogwai
The Scientist - Coldplay

Does anyone else have any movie recommendations based on kick-ass soundtracks?
