Guardians of the Galaxy films are great. People that don't enjoy them, have no soul. And the music is ace.

It's all gone Pete Tong is a quality film and a top performance from Paul Kaye, the sound track is excellent (Reflekt, Ferry Corsten, Shapeshifters, The Beach Boys).

Kevin and Perry go Large is stupid, funny but stupid and is so dated now, but the dance music is quality.

Okay, me and Samshark might appreciate the music more than others but its still excellent.

GotG is fun but that PLUS shitty comedy clubbing movies with shithouse club mix soundtracks = x(

And the Awesome Mixes are basically karaoke playlists, let's be honest here

(I was also referring to your unaccountable obsession with Nic Cage)

And what's wrong with that? Most of the songs used are all time classics like the chain, Hooked on a Feeling, Moonage Daydream, Mr Bluesky etc. Brilliant songs, and what's more they worked perfectly with the movie and when you listen to them you think of the movie now and therefore the fun. I listened to the second one this afternoon and I was just smiling thinking of the guy going "I'm Mary Poppins Y'all".

So you don't like dance music, I can deal with that, just don't be annoyed when people like it, and the it's all gone pete tong soundtrack is a great mix of chilled out and more up beat stuff.

That was going to be my next suggestion - farken love that film, and the soundtrack is so spot on, I thought most of the tunes were written specifically for the fillum when I first heard it.

Oi, and I want a bit more than 'tour vignoble', you utter, utter bastard! Least you can do is talk us through the domaines, chateaux and app-cons, so I can have a bit of a wine wank. It might do wonders for this desultory half bottle of Chateau Creosote that some palestine left here last night.

I actually have the soundtrack to Diva on LP, and The Draughtsmans Contract is another good call'
"Chasing Sheep is best left to Shepherds" is a serious piece of music heard in Concert Halls these days.
