I finally watched Juno last night and I can understand why some people might not like the soundtrack, as it did feature fairly heavily. But overall I liked it and thought it suited the tone of the movie. As for the movie itself, I guess I was put off by all the hype around it for quite a while, but let’s not confuse the hype around the movie with the movie itself. I thought it was good. Not great, but it wasn't striving for greatness. It was just a good story well told.
It was also nice to hear a pro-life message that didn't resort to preaching or bashing the audience over the head with a political point of view.
I'd have to agree with you 75% of the way as it does feature The Kinks, Sonic Youth and Cat Power doing a nice version of Sea of Love by Phil Philipis also covered by Tom Waits. So, in my opinion, 3 tracks from 19 gives it 15% of decent music, the rest, I concur, tends to grate one's balls very quickly.
In response to the original post: oh yes. I've heard far worse. Way worse. Barb Wire springs to mind. I watched for erm, research purposes. Ahem. Bag of shite. Thank Christ Marion had a tune on there. Otherwise i may have thrown the fecking telly out the fecking window. I found the Juno s.t. pleasant enough. Especially compared to many movies. Love, Rv
