In honor of the 9th Annual Milwaukee Film Festival

The Milwaukee Film Festival kicks off tomorrow.  There will be over 300 films screened during the festival.  Besides good cinematography and direction, a film’s soundtrack can take a movie from good to great.  A well-curated soundtrack can also help fans discover new music or rediscover an old gem.

So we asked 88Nine DJs to share some of their favorite soundtrack songs from some of their favorite movies.  The DJs picks songs from a wide variety of films, cult classics and more including Kill Bill, Weird Science, Cool Hand Luke, Trainspotting, and more.

You can check out their picks below and listen to a special Spotify playlist we put together just for you.
