I'll also throw out:
Undercover Brother. Well, I guess just the theme, and that Michael Jackson scene before the helicopter.

Without a doubt, Jurassic Park. And of course, I love the theme from Superman. Hannibal has a great score as well.

I've kept the main theme to Medal of Honor : Allied Assault in my iTunes long after the game has gone

I liked the soundtrack to 28 Days Later – especially the edited version of Godspeed You! Black Emperor's song. It really made the movie in my opinion.

The movie Moonlight Mile also had a pretty good soundtrack. Coen brothers movies have good soundtracks; so did The Royal Tennenbaums and The Life Aquatic.

Great film too.

I might add the Western equivalent of Kurosawa's The Seven Samurai: The Magnificent Seven (Elmer Bernstein).

I've read the wiki entry on it and Once Upon a Time... and I'm left feeling there's a lot of films I should be watching to further appreciate them.

There are lots of great films out there with some very unique soundtracks.
You might like the Zatoichi series as well (the one with Shintarô Katsu). It's essentially about a blind swordsman in the Edo period that avenges wrong doers.

Almost forgot a few:

West Side Story
Guys and Dolls
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The Song of the South
Gone With The Wind
Casablanca
Brazil

the only soundtrack that jumps out of my head is Forrest Gump and Grease
