For a soundtrack's associated links, would it be too difficult to add a link to Wikipedia pointing to Wikipedia's entry for the film? Sometimes when you're listening to a score you want to know more about the film, what it's about, the synopsis, etc... Wikipedia is pretty good with that information. (it's way better than IMDB for that)

Also, you could add Wikipedia links for the composer, too.

Am I blind or why can't I find any wikipedia link when looking into an album e.g. "The Matrix" by Don Davis etc.? Confused

It is there. You have to scroll down a bit.
It's in the "Related Links" block which is the last block on the right (counting from the top).

I need to make the sponsored links a little shorter I guess.

I've noticed that several of the links do not go to the wikipedia site for that movie, instead they go to another wikipedia page with the same name. Why is that?

The links go to the wikipedia search page.
This page automatically selects the page with the highest relevance.
There's nothing that can be done about that.
