A good soundtrack can bring us into the world of a film. It has the ability to stir emotions, make us laugh, make us cry, make us go to the bathroom in our pants. But a soundtrack alone is helpless in the face of a mediocre movie. Here are 9 examples of movies that succeeded in the killer tunes department, but let us down with the movies themselves.
Ringo Starr was quoted as saying the movie Help! was produced under a "haze of marijuana." We aren't surprised. Coming off of the success of A Hard Day's Night, The Beatles were given a bigger budget and shot the movie in color (a rarity at the time), but the film ended up feeling like a bunch of hot air. According to movie historian Leslie Halliwell, it was an "[e]xhausting attempt to outdo A Hard Day's Night in lunatic frenzy. It looks good but becomes too tiresome to entertain." The soundtrack, however, has never grown tiresome. It recently ranked number 332 on Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums of all time and featured soon-to-be classics like "Yesterday" and "Ticket to Ride."
