My Favourite Movie Soundtracks

The Graduate

From one of my favourite movies of the 60s comes the phenomenal soundtrack completely sung by the historical duo Simon & Garfunkel. Every song on here is beautifully written and even more magically sung while still fitting perfectly with the films tone and style. If you are a Simon & Garfunkel fan you have probably already heard all of these songs on their own separate albums but this is the collection of some of their greatest songs and this is a must listen for anyone who even remotely likes music.

Best Song – The Sound Of Silence

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World

From another one of my favourite movies comes the amazingly modern yet retro soundtrack for the film Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. With a mixture of rock and techno it fits perfectly with this incredible piece of modern cinema. Containing songs from rock legends The Rolling Stones and T-Rex to fictional band Sex-bob-omb, to understand the brilliance of most of these tracks you really need to watch this movie and once you have you will not be able to turn this soundtrack off.

Best song – We Are Sex-bob-omb

Pulp Fiction

This is yet again another one of my favourite movies and the soundtrack is just beyond perfect, the Pulp Fiction soundtrack that combines lots of past hits to make a beautifully fluent and soundtrack that is one of the best you will ever hear. The great thing about this soundtrack is that it also contains everyones favourite dialogue from the movie, yes even Ezekiel 25:17. Everyone I know who has listened to this has said it is their favourite soundtrack and I would have to say it’s mine to.

Best song – You Can Never Tell

A Hard Days Night

I am an absolutely huge fan of The Beatles so this makes this soundtrack one of my favourites of all time, the film alone is brilliant but with the addition of this soundtrack it makes it one of my favourite movies ever. The Beatles are, in my opinion, one of the greatest bands of all time and I couldn’t think of anything better than a whole soundtrack filled with some of their greatest tracks.

Best song – She Loves You



Romantic Movies Both Genders Will Love This Valentines

As today is valentines day I thought I would give you a few ideas of movies that you and your partner can enjoy together this valentines. (Just click on the images to view the trailers)

(500) Days Of Summer – This is my favourite romantic films, I seriously love this film and I’m a guy. (500) Days Of Summer centres on Tom (Joseph Gordon-Levvitt) and his search for true love, which leads him to find Summer (Zooey Deschanel) a woman who doesn’t believe in “true love” but that doesn’t stop Tom falling deeply in love with her. The thing I really love about this film is how truthful it is, and how it a fresh take on the romantic comedy genre. This movie is so close to perfect, it is actually one of my favourite movies I have ever seen, it is simply beautiful. This film contains so extremely loveable actors that will capture your attention throughout, Levitt and Deschanel make for a great couple that have phenomenal chemistry throughout; you will not doubt their relationship for one second while watching. (500) Days Of Summer is a sweet, refreshing and extremely delightful film that everyone will love. This would be my number one recommendation for you and your partner to watch on valentines night.

Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World – Girls will love the romance side and guys will love just how nerdy this film really is. Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World focuses on Scott Pilgrim (Michael Cera) and how he has to defeat his new girlfriend, Ramona’s (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) seven evil ex-boyfriends. Admittedly the nerdier of people will like this film a lot more than others but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying it. This film is smart, funny and at time rather cute; the cuteness of this film should appeal to the women in a relationship, but the occasional action will keep the men interested. Scott Pilgrim has some great teen actors in it offering great performances from Michael Cera and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, you can just tell that these two actors will be on our screens for a while. I wouldn’t recommend this film to everyone as I know some people that wouldn’t like it, you can check out the trailer below and if that doesn’t interest you then I highly doubt you will like the rest of the film.

Edward Scissorhands – Another film that isn’t an obvious romance film but it is still worth the watch with your other half on valentines day. It maybe set during Christmas but that shouldn’t stop you from watching it. Edward Scissorhands is a strange young man who has scissors for hands who falls in love with a gorgeous teenage girl. Edward Scissorhands has some astonishing performances from amazing actors who were just starting off, we get to see Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder twenty two years younger than they are now. Overall this film is a great happy movie that will be loved by anyone who watches it.

Friends With Benefits – This is one of the films on my list that is a true rom-com that can be loved by both genders. Friends With Benefits focuses on the relationship between Jamie (Mila Kunis) and Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and how they decide to be friends but still have sex. Yes it does sound extremely similar to a film called No String Attached but trust me when I say this, Friends With Benefits is a mile better, for starters this film is actually funny and it contains younger hotter actors. It is the actress in this film that will keep the men interested throughout this film, Mila Kunis will keep guys eyes fixed on the screen for every seen she is in. The chemistry between Kunis and Timberlake is just pure brilliance, they are both hilarious together offering an overall funny film mixed with a predictable storyline but that doesn’t effect the lovableness of this film and its characters.

Which movie will you be watching this year with your loved one? Feel free to tell me in the comments below. Thanks again for reading.
