....Critical Hit (Aaaaaahhh), he'll save every one of us!

Well I finally got round to watching The Human Centipede last night, which even if I spent the next 1000 years writing with a 1000 poets I still could not form a review bad enough to really represent what I thought about that movie. That being said I now don't consider myself that weird in comparison to whatever was going through the head of the writer when he came up with that 'movie'.

Instead I think I'll do another top five. Yeah, I know I'm supposed to be reviewing stuff but you love it really.

Yet Another Top 5 Movie Soundtracks 

1. Flash Gordon - Now any soundtrack written and performed by the legendary Queen is going to make it on this list, especially when you consider that 'Flash' is one of the greatest movie themes and is almost guaranteed to out any nerds at a karaoke bar.


2. Gladiator - Now Hans Zimmer is a lot like John Williams in that his music sort of just works away subliminally in the back of the movie, but every now again something amazing breaks through and takes the movie to another level. The best example of this I could think of was 'Now We Are Free' from the movie Gladiator.


3. Trainspotting - I'm not usually a fan of Danny Boyle but there is no denying the quality of Trainspotting as a movie. For anybody who hasn't seen the movie it's about a bunch of Scots doing what Scots do best (heroin), since the release of this track I have heard at least fifty different remixes of this tune by Underworld so I'm going to put this in as well as my personal favorite from the movie; 'Lust for Life' by Iggy Pop (who has since taken to forcing car insurance on me).


4. Fight Club - Now any old followers will already know my opinions on perhaps the greatest movie ever made, but what I didn't mention was Fight Club's amazing soundtrack by The Dust Brothers. The only problem is that most of the tracks are really slow and don't really do the movie any justice on their own, so instead here is the closing track by The Pixies.


5. Sucker Punch - See I actually know some 'new' movies as [contrary to popular belief] I'm not stuck in the 90's. I know that this is the marmite of movies with some people loving it and some people hating it, but what can't be questioned is the soundtrack which manages to be both subtle and powerful. Oh, and this song's also about drug abuse so win/win?





.... maybe the Crow will make it next time?

  1. Flash does have an amazing sound track, but it's a painfully cheesy film xD A better version of White Rabbit (in my opinion ofc) is also in the film The Game, which is a good film...
