I'm not sure whether this one should be in "music" or movies but I had to choose.
What is your favourite soundtrack?
Mine:
"Full Metal Jacket"
"Matrix"
"Lost Highway"
These are the ones I remember...

these are the only two I can listen to, close my eyes, and see the movie

The Crow! Thanks for remind me this one! How could I not like a soundtrack that includes the "Burn" by The Cure!
Lovely! I adored the last song, I think it's the "Itwon't rain all the time, the sky won't fall forever..."

Rent, Les Mis, Phantom, etc.

She's All That, Grease!, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, American Graffiti, Indiana Jones, etc.

Yeah...the soundtracks to the Crow and Matrix are both pretty cool. I like those angry type soundtracks...

Dances With Wolves was nice...John Barry did a fine job with that film. Most of John Williams' stuff is worth a listen. 2001, A Space Odyssey is quite memorable...as is Fantasia. If you are a Sara Brightman fan, interesting tunes were derived from the Mission soundtrack and the Highlander soundtrack as well. Check those out...

For nostalgic purposes, I must bring up John Hughes' teen films from the 1980s, particularly Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful (was that Hughes?) and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Indy Jones, Jaws, Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind.
Star Wars, how did Chris Colombus get John to do the Harry Potter soundtrack?

Two good ones Jazz, for instrumental music. For vocals you can't beat anything from the Rogers and Hammerstein musicals. South Pacific is my favorite by them.
The music with the most staying power for me is from the theater performance of Peter Pan. I first saw it on TV in the 50s, with Mary Martin as Peter. A few years ago I took my son to see the Cathy Rigby production, when it came to town. As soon as another song began I would remember the words and start singing along. My son kept looking at me, "how do you know that song?" (Some things just stay with you.) After almost 50 years my favorite selection is still "I Won't Grow Up!" No sir, not ME!

I have to say 'Gladiator'. The battle music is superb, as is the final song. Fantastic !
I also really like the soundtrack to 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and 'Saving Private Ryan'. And of course not forgetting John Williams' stuff.

My favorite music is country. There are no movie soundtracks that I can think of that came from one specific movie.

However, my favorite Country Artist has a new song out, which is dedicated to September 11,2001. Awesome song. The words really do tug at the heart strings.

I also liked Gladiator, Space Odyssey is also a memorable one.
A country one that I recall was the big extravaganza called "Nashville". Kris Kristofferson and a bunch of folks contributed. It was an Alton film.

Vangelis' Bladerunner soundtrack is pretty damn cool.
The John Barry Bond soundtracks, especially "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" - That tune's just fantastic!
Ennio Morricone's Spaghetti Western soundtracks are also rather fine.
There must be more, but I an't think of them just now!

wez - would that be Jaws?

My favorite soundtrack is to The Insider. Lisa Gerrard does excellent work. Incidentally, she also worked on the soundtrack to Gladiator, but I think her work on The Insider is much better.

I also like the soundtrack to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. I had listened to it, like, 40 times, thinking 'my goodness, they did a good job finding a singer because he sounds just like Kevin Spacey (star of the movie)'. Then I check the liner notes and it was! And he's good. Clint Eastwood also sings. It's just cool!

Playing God has a good soundtrack too. Kind of like the Matrix but without the heavy industrial side.

Though the movie's value is questionable, Wild Things has a pretty good soundtrack. Almost entirely instrumental, so good for writing papers to (if there're words I start to sing along and then I can't think).

I have so many favorite soundtracks. City of Angels, Runaway Bride, Titanic, Grease, Casper, the best songs are the ones that reach out and touch your soul. One of the newer songs which come from a movie is There You'll Be from Pearl Harbor. If youve ever lost someone you still carry them with you in your heart.

And "Mad Props" to John Carpenter! His eerie self composed soundtracks for Dark Star, The Thing, The Fog and especially Halloween have had me quaking in my size 11's for years. Go John!

My favourite soundtrack is American Graffiti. It has all the music I like. I also think the soundtrack for the first Pokemon movie was good.
