10 Soundtracks That Were Way Better Than The Movies They Were Made For

- Page 1

A good soundtrack can make a great movie just that much better: what would Top Gun be without "Danger Zone" or Flashdance without "Maniac?" However, sometimes a soundtrack is SO good that it helps us forget that the movie we're watching really isn't, which is especially the case for these next 10 movies.

Batman Forever (1995)

The soundtrack that almost single-handedly made Seal's "Kiss From A Rose" the smash-hit that it was, we could almost forgive it for being attached to the second-worst Batman movie of all time.

Saturday Night Fever (1977)

The movie was a massive it in its time, but let's get real here, if it wasn't for the BeeGees, nobody would've cared. The soundtrack is the absolute best of the disco era, and it still holds up well if you like that sort of thing.

Purple Rain (1984)

Purple Rain the movie is just kind of okay. Purple Rain the album, on the other hand, is an absolute masterpiece of rock and funk, released by a master of the craft.

The Bodyguard (1992)

This mediocre star vehicle for both Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston is saved by a soundtrack featuring some of her absolute best work, to the point that it's still beloved to this day.

These next few movies definitely had way better soundtracks than they probably deserved...

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips!

There really is no other way to put this, if you remember these songs you are definitely getting closer to 30+, than you are to 21.

'Backdraft' Is Getting A Sequel 27 Years After The Original, With Only One Of The Original Stars

Few movies have given us as exciting of a look at the life of a firefighter as Backdraft. The Chicago-based thriller followed the fire department as they take on some big fires and some big drama.The cast was really impressive, and included big names like Robert De Niro, Kurt Russell, Billy Baldwin, and Donald Sutherland. With such an impressive cast, you'd expect a guaranteed hit, but it received mixed reviews. However, despite the mixed reviews, the movie made a good chunk of change at the box office and now they are trying to make it happen again. Universal PicturesThat's


'Men In Black' Reboot Reveals Who They've Cast As The Stars Of The New Movie

I know, I know, no more reboots! Everyone is sick of our favorite movies getting made over and over again, but Hollywood seems to be out of ideas and they've got to make something. This time it's going to be a remake of arguably the best Will Smith movie ever: Men In Black. Sony plans to go the Jurassic World route, and introduce new characters in the already established world. So I guess it's not so much a reboot as a spin-off. The new movie is not set to feature either Tommy Lee Jones's Agent K or Will Smith's Agent
