With Richard Curtis' upcoming romantic comedy adding a little time travel tweak to the proceedings, it perhaps follows that the accompanying soundtrack is a bit scattershot. There isn't much in the way of contemporary hits, but whatever was rockin' your dial a few years ago—or even a few decades ago—has made its way into the movie.

There are many pieces that come together to make David Lowery's "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" one of the most memorable films of the year so far. From its finely modulated tone that tilts between foreboding and yearning, to a blend of pitch perfect performances from the cast including Rooney Mara, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Nate Parker and Keith Carradine, this slow burn tale of two separated lovers on a collision course with both their future and past is a striking piece of work. But one other element that helps seal it all together is the score by Daniel Hart.

There are many elements that have come together to make "Breaking Bad" not only one of the best shows on TV right now, but really of all time. From the fearless plotting, the breathless direction and the outstanding performances from the cast — Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Bob Odenkirk, Dean Norris, Anna Gunn and many more — all have come together in the kind of perfect storm you don't get too often. But not mentioned nearly often enough is the score by Dave Porter.

Director Francois Ozon’s latest film, “Jeune Et Jolie” (“Young and Beautiful”) made its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Our own Kevin Jagernauth wasn’t too impressed, giving it a “C” partially because of Ozon’s underwhelming narrative that uses “a young woman’s risk-filled sexual awakening as an illustration of coming-of-age, while also demanding a realism from a situation that he keeps far from being rationalized and justified.” Although it has yet to grace our shores, the film’s soundtrack has been revealed.

Your humble Playlist correspondent doesn't regret much about his life, but he does regret this: the night in 2006 when legendary Manhattan punk rock club CBGB closed its doors for the very last time, with Patti Smith playing the final set on the famous stage, he was in New York for the first time in his entire life and didn't go. This bitterest of missed chances will hurt forever, and CBGB now only exists in sweaty memories and booze-soaked anecdotes: but the forthcoming film about the club will perhaps numb the pain a little.

Metallica Through The Never
It seems slightly redundant for Billboard to refer to Metallica's plans for their forthcoming album “Metallica Through The Never (Music from the Motion Picture)” as “old school”: surely everything that Metallica do is old school? Simply by waking up every morning and continuing to rock, just months before his 50th birthday, Lars Ulrich is old school.

Queen Of The Night Ryan Reynolds
Mychael Danna, who has scored all of Canadian director Atom Egoyan's features for the last twenty years (including the as-yet-unreleased "Devil's Knot," starring Colin Firth and Reese Witherspoon), will, unsurprisingly, contribute music to Egoyan's new film, "Queen of the Night." The thriller, starring Ryan Reynolds (mercifully away from any kind of comic book adaptation), Bruce Greenwood, Scott Speedman and Rosario Dawson, is about the search for a missing child and, like every other movie in the known universe, will be premiering at this fall's Toronto International Film Festival. Read on for more about new scores from Air and soundtrack details for Claire Denis' controversial "Bastards."

The Canyons, trailer, Lohan
While Steven Soderbergh’s assertion that “The Canyons” has “a spectacular sex scene” has been one of many tantalizing teases for the movie, audiences clamoring to see Lindsay Lohan in the Paul Schrader-directed, Brett Easton Ellis-penned film waiting to see for themselves how it all turns out. The film has been greeted by all kinds of mini-scandals and buzz, and it's been something the trailers and photos are hoping to capitalize off of, and audiences are only a couple weeks away from seeing the finished product.
