Movies that don't quite live up to their amazing Soundtracks

Showing my age but everyone I knew had the Singles soundtrack growing up. Can’t remember one line or scene from it.

(And I loved Say Anything and Almost Famous.)

Cutthroat Island fits this thread perfectly!

I feel like time has been a little bit kinder to it with some of the campy humor.  I had been working on an edit of this movie purely out of motivation from the stellar soundtrack.  John Debney's score pays such homage to the amazing swashbuckling scores of Erich Korngold.  Give a listen to the opening track:



I love the buildup around 3:42 where it feels like it's leading to the ending and then around 4:06 it goes in a different direction and gives me chills.

I listen to the special 2 CD soundtrack release more often than I care to admit.  I'm always wondering if there's a superhero or scifi adventure I could reuse this score for.  I used to keep the VHS cued up to the very end just to listen to the music buildup into the credits.

1980's Flash Gordon?  Replace the Queen score, make it black and white and BOOM!!! FLASH GORDON LIVES!

Replace the Superman the Movie score with the Masters of the Universe score, just as a jokey expirement.

I just realized, I have Superman on dvd only, but Masters of the Universe on Bluray. Weird priorities.
Mega Man is best game.

THE PUNISHER (2004)

An AMAZING score by Carlo Siiotto!!!!  Haunting, almost spaghetti western.
I actually really like this movie.  My favourite Punisher film.  The only thing that stops it from being perfect is the location.
Miami????

....of spaghetti western style scores...
