  eh! i enjoyed the movie, a lot more the first time than the second when i realized it really was just a cheezy romance story and they used music entirely way too much to push the mood.

  I love that movie so so so so much. Hence the avatar.
The soundtrack is amazing, the movie was great. It meant a lot to me.

but isn't that what music does no matter whether you're in a movie or in real life? I can think back to situations in my life in which a certain song was playing and see so well how that song affected and bettered everything else.

  That song sucked though, if that's the best the soundtrack has to offer I wonder what "bad" is to you lol.


The only thing I liked about it was:

Dawn breaks like a bull through the hall,
Never should have called
But my head's to the wall and i'm lonely.


The rest is garbage, sung in an "emotional" way to make it all sound deep and meaningful, but unless I'm really missing something, which I doubt, it's not.




Oh yeah, and I haven't seen any pictures of the guy who sings it, but I'm pretty sure he needs a haircut.

That happened to me too.
Except I feel like the difference between the first and second was so large I couldn't believe it.

I still like the movie but it just wasn't the same the second time around :(



The Shins are a wonderful band.
Zach Braff seems like a cool guy in real life.
Natalie Portman is pretty. [But when you are first introduced to her character you are afraid that she is going to be annoying for the rest of the movie and then it turns out to be ok.]

I like when they scream in the rain. Everyone should try that sometime.

what about,
"gold teeth and a curse for this town were all in my mouth, only I don't know how they got out, dear"

good lyricism, if you ask me. Try to hold it against any song whatsoever that's played popular on american radio these days.

  Garden State soundtrack is one of the best soundtracks I've heard in a while. Haven't seen the movie.

My favorite track has to be Let Go by Frou Frou. I also liked Zero 7's contribution [though I like Destiny more], Thievery Corporation's, and Coldplay's among others.

  I'd have mentionned Thievery Corporation's Lebanese Blonde for Chris (mellow trip seems more his style), but that song's been out for years and years

still, I dig.

  Well, a lot of the bands featured on the track have been around for a while [as have their songs]. But the Garden State soundtrack exposed a lot of these more obscure bands to more mainstream listeners, which I can dig.

It does take away from the mystery of the music, but I'd rather my liked bands be earning money and keeping their roots than having to change their sounds to sell.

Sell outs suck : (

  True say.

I was happy I could finally talk to my friends about The Shins.
Now, to get tickets to their show!

yes, but it seems they deliberately chose emotionally charged songs to add emotion to an emotionally lacking movie. if that makes sense. I wasn't pulled in as much by the plot/dialogue/characters as I was by the music. Which is lame, I could just go watch MTV cause the whole thing felt like a music video.

I guess it depends on the viewer, because I found a lot of the dialogue to be sort of close-to-home and it was emotional for me...

I'm starting to get into the Mars Volta, but I've only heard a few of their songs. : ( I need to be able to get into all the bands I want to delve into without spending lots of money...

Any ideas??

Oasis is fun. Bob Dylan is too... I'd love to go to one of his shows. The funny thing is I'm only a casual listener of both.

I personally am pushing for the Muse concert coming to my area...

Any other fans of Muse??

Mars Volta albums are ridiculously inexpensive. brand new, $9CDN, $7USD.
the thing with them, though, is that they make concept albums. Pulling one song out of, say, Frances The Mute, will not be anywhere near as satisfying as hearing it in the full ensemble that makes up that particular record.

and for the price of a big mac combo, why not just snag a copy?

what? a movie that uses some kind of trick to lure the viewer into thinking its good? never! such a thing must surely not exist... the movie industry has much more integrity than that!

I have a feeling that price is gonna jump. They're actually getting airplay now and are starting to become popular.

Thanks. Libra, for the Limewire hint. I'll check it out.

Mostly I've been listening to stuff from free mp3 sites like epitonic and Amazon and the like.

You too Asswipe! You've been doped into thinking the soundtrack was something that is part of a movie. Shame on you that is just a conspiracy.
