Jade - Honestly I don't know what it was about Plunkett & MacLeane. I do know I was sick that night and Mr. ZG was making fun of the whole thing as it was on, so that may have influenced my thoughts. I promise I will attempt it again (probably this weekend as Mr. ZG will be working) and I will give my full report after. Smile

I hadn't heard anything about the movie "October Sky". After listening to the score, which I really love, on SST, I desperately wanted to see the movie. Although there are good actors in it and the movie is rated rather good at the imdb, I didn't really like it that much, as it was just another forseeable success story.

There were both very good and really bad movies among them, but it also made me watch movies which are not that well known Smile

Well it's a true story, so being forseeable is...well...forseeable.

On a number of occasions, hearing the soundtrack at SST has led me to rent the film. Probably the most notable:

Modigliani - Wonderful score. Awful movie.

I went on X-Men: Dark Phoenix only because Hans' s Zimmer score. I hate X-Men, but I listened on spotify the score and was curious what the movie is about, so I went. Wasn't that bad, not good either, but the score, THE SCORE! save that day Smile

Hehe long list there martino Very Happy some of the movies are also on my "heard the soundtrack, watched the movie because of it"-list. The best and definitely leading title is however "How to train you dragon" as I heard the music here on SST before, liked it and decided to watch the movie because of it. Well, now it is one of my, if not the favourite movie Very Happy
But in general, I hear the scores first on SST, and then at some ppoint watch the movies, sometimes because of the soundtracks, sometimes because of talking in chat about it Smile

Adding a few movies that sticked to my mind that I watched because of the soundtrack:

The man from UNCLE D.Pemberton
Swiss Army Man (as mentioned above)
Thor Ragnarok (ok not only because of the score but also because people told me it would be good, it was Very Happy )
Lady in the van by george fenton
Sinbad, Legend Of The Seven Seas by Harry Gregson Williams (granted, I saw the most important plot parts of the movie during the FMF gala already, but decided to watch it in full length again)
.... propably more, but I can't wrap my head around them at the moment Very Happy

Have to admit How to train your dragon 3 blew my mind, both by score and the movie. The piece Third date, As long as he's safe, and Once there were dragons are absolutely unforgettable.
I also went on Widows, again because of Hans's score

How To Train Your Dragon for me too, indeed! I probably would've seen it otherwise at some point also, as I like animated films, but I wanted to watch it primarily to get to know the context for that amazing score.
Also Pride & Prejudice, although I also watched that because my mother liked it, and I had read the novel some years before.
