You forgot that porno documentary.

Oops, was I not supposed to mention that?

bad taste in music?

sorry Duffy, i thought the soundtrack to juno was really good.

I'm not talking about the soundtrack on its own, I'm talking about it in the context of the movie, in which it was complete crap. You're talking about characters who love the Clash and punk and rock and alternative, and you play folksy indy music? It took me completely out of the movie, and it happened a lot.

I also watched a documentary called Thinking XXX which was about porn starts having their pictures taken. First with their clothes on, then off. It wasn't very good.

hmmm.....that's actually not a bad point. I didn't think about that at all.

Why does this bother you so?

2 characters in the movie love rock & roll and punk, so the score should only be rock and roll?

In the professional the main bad guy kills the girls family while listening to classical, but the rest of the soundtrack isn't classical.

The movie was all about regret, unrequited love and other twee nonsense that is perfectly served by indie folk like belle and sebastian. To me it fit the mood of the film well.

It upset him cause it brought him out of the movie.

I don't think that's unreasonable. Sometimes the music choices in a movie, no matter the type of either, can bother you. It happens. Meh.

I do completely agree with Duffy that the opening is silly and trying too hard to be hip and funny. I was dreading that the whole movie was going to be like that.

one of the song in juno was from the movie once
which is a nice movie with fantastic music

the move is pretty much all music, but that was good because i couldn't get enough of it

The soundtrack still sucked in this movie.
