Favorite Soundtrack?

Just wondering everyone's favorite movie soundtracks. I was listening to one of my favorites: Bourne Supremacy by John Powell, and it made me think to ask this.... so go ahead and list some of your favorites.

Mine are (in no particular order):
- Bourne Supremacy
- The Shining
- The Ring
- Ocean's 11 & 12
- Batman Begins
- Fight Club (for the techno fans, this is serious techno)
- Good Will Hunting

I've probably got a ton more, but these are some I can think of off the top of my head

Ooooh, I forgot about Pulp Fiction, don't own it, but it's a good one. I think I also like the Kill Bill soundtrack, but I've only seen the movie once, so I'd have to watch it again to be sure

Wow, there are a lot of soundtracks I've forgotten about. I like all of John Williams' soundtracks, and pretty much anything Hans Zimmer has done. I'm actually watching some 24 episodes right now and the soundtrack is beginning to grow on me
