Personal favourites;

Jaws
The Godfather
The Empire Strikes Back
The Mission
Platoon
Top Gun
I'm Not There - Dylan biopic

And while not an actual movie soundtrack, Fantomas' covers album of film music, The Director's Cut, is brillliant.

Backbeat - because Yoko wouldn't give them rights to any Beatles songs they got a supergroup together that had Greg Dulli, Thurston Moore, Dave Grohl, Don Pirner, Don Flemming and Mike Mills to sing Rock N Roll standards.

Nick Cave is a colossus. I know he didn't do the sound track for this but he did write it (in three weeks apparently) and he did score the The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

He's a 'kin ligind.

Cinema Paradiso.

Actually, anything done by Ennio Morricone.

For a Few Dollars More - Soundtrack's better than The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Just watched season 1 of Peaky Blinders, they have Red Right Hand as the theme tune and use half his back catalogue through the series. It fits like a glove.
