Dumpster movies, FIRE soundtracks.

Fifty Shades of Grey

"It did not deserve to be that good." —whatadickens

Republic Records

Glitter

"The movie itself is indeed a mess, but the album that accompanied has definitely aged well and seems ahead of its time, in retrospect. People criticized Mariah for trying to bring back the '80s in 2001, but by 2009 everybody was trying to bring back the '80s. She should have just waited a little bit longer." —svdorme

Virgin Records

Twilight

"'Decode' by Paramore and 'Supermassive Black Hole' by Muse are absolute classics. No shame." —melissat42589e7e4

Chop Shop / Atlantic Records

Elizabethtown

Elizabethtown

"The script is terrible, and the plot doesn’t make the most sense, but the soundtrack is killer. Between Tom Petty, The Hombres, and Elton John, there’s a lot to be excited about." —astread

RCA Records

Josie and the Pussycats

Josie and the Pussycats

"It may be a ridiculous movie, but the soundtrack for Josie and the Pussycats was so fun and catchy! The lead singer from Letters to Cleo sang most of the songs, and I just love her!" —Michelle Moran, Facebook

Epic/Sony Records

Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad

"It has an amazing soundtrack with a variety of artists from Eminem to Twenty One Pilots. I still listen to the soundtrack on repeat." —mjbol57

Atlantic Records

Daredevil

"The movie was pretty awful, but listening to Seether, Evanescence, The Calling, and Drowning Pool made things a little easier to bear." —nanasgirl94

Wind-up Records

City of Angels

City of Angels

"I feel like this topic was invented for City of Angels. Great soundtrack, and it's even aged fairly well. The movie? Incredibly stupid." —ngmelissac

Warner Bros.

Godzilla (2000)

Godzilla (2000)

"Back when it was released, it featured the first new Wallflowers song in three years (a cover of David Bowie's 'Heroes'). I played that thing on my cassette deck the entire day it was released. It also featured 'Come with Me' by Puff Daddy, 'Walk the Sky' by Fuel, 'Deeper Underground' by Jamiroquai, and a 'Godzilla Remix' of 'Brain Stew'go by Green Day." —Sean Mackey, Facebook

Epic/Sony Records

Xanadu

Xanadu

"The Xanadu soundtrack is unbelievably good! For a film so bad that it inspired the Razzie Awards, the album went Double Platinum, and is still to this day regularly played in my home. 'Magic' became a hit for Olivia Newton John, and it went on to have an incredibly successful run on Broadway!" —cydneyt2

Jet / MCA

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

"John Williams can do no wrong. George Lucas can do wrong sometimes." –Simon Ritchie, Facebook

Sony Classical

Ghostbusters II

Ghostbusters II

"Hear me out: Ghostbusters II soundtrack is FIRE. It's on Spotify. Look it up." —Samantha C. Sullivan, Facebook

MCA Records

Brimstone & Treacle

Brimstone & Treacle

"Kind of a silly movie circa mid-1980s with Sting in the starring role. Lots of Police songs — some not available anywhere else, plus the eerily catchy instrumental theme song. The Go Go's and Squeeze also show up on the soundtrack. All in all, a highly recommended soundtrack. (Avoid the movie unless you really, really love Sting...which I do.)"

A&M Records
