Best Movie Soundtracks of 2011

This is a different kind of list. Instead of talking about the best or worst movies, I'm listing the best soundtracks and scores of movies! Of course you may recognize a few of these from my best movies of 2011 list since a great soundtrack helps toward making a great movie. I judge a soundtrack on it's uniqueness, how well it fits with the tone of the movie, and how likely I am to get it and listen to it multiple times.  So here's a list of my favorite scores and soundtracks of 2011!

DOA: Dead or Alive

Get out your fighting moves and beach volleyballs! We're reviewing DOA: Dead or Alive!
Cutesy versions of Hayate, Tina, Lei Fang, and Christie.

For some reason, I was under the impression this was a Uwe Boll film, which would have been quite a dilemma since his movies are the very definition of terrible, and this one is pretty good. Thankfully, he had nothing to do with this production, which explains why it's surprisingly not that bad.

Get out your tights and wrenches! We're reviewing Super!
That's right Crime, you heard him.
There's no other way of putting this. Super is a really effed up movie. It's Kick-Ass on crazy pills. Think about that for a second. This takes the "realistic and gritty" superhero story to it's extreme. It is easily the most realistic superhero film you will ever see.

The Muppets

Get out your chickens and bears and frogs and pigs because by golly we're reviewing The Muppets!

Let me preface this by saying that I've seen the movies and I used to watch the show from time to time, but I don't remember the Muppets as fondly as others, and it didn't exactly hit the right nostalgic button for me. That said, please, please, PLEASE bring your kids to see this instead of the new Chipmunks movie coming out this week. And hey, it's got more stars than all of New Year's Eve combined!

Get out your clockworks and gears. We're reviewing Hugo!

Hugo is directed by the amazing Martin Scorsese, has an all-star cast, and has some of the most beautiful visuals of any movie this year. But is it a well-oiled machine, or is it just a jumbled mess of shiny parts?

Get out Yes, we're just going to go with weed. We're reviewing 50/50!

I finally got a chance to check out 50/50. It's one of those rare films that can be difficult to watch, as it's both a comedy and a tragedy at the same time. The question on everyone's mind was if it would be a sincere look at the hardships of cancer or a crude comedy aimed at cheap laughs. Well, it's genuine, it's hilarious, and it's heartbreaking.
