Overview

Elvis Presley's movie soundtracks have long been notorious for being among his worst material -- who can forget the legendary vinyl bootleg of '60s movie soundtrack highlights called Elvis' Greatest Shit? -- but among the dreck, there were some wonderful songs, ideal for a single-disc compilation along the lines of Movies, which is one of six thematic Elvis compilations released in 2006. Unfortunately, Movies falls short of being a perfect comp of these highlights, since it misses such big songs as "Can't Help Falling in Love," "Return to Sender," and "A Little Less Conversation" (plus such enjoyable throwaways as "Bossa Nova Baby") are missing. Despite this, much of this 24-track collection is very good, containing such Elvis '60s standards as "Blue Hawaii," "G.I. Blues," "Follow That Dream," and "Viva Las Vegas," and also stretching back to the '50s for "Love Me Tender," "Loving You," "Jailhouse Rock," and "King Creole." So even if this isn't an ideal collection of highlights from Elvis' soundtracks, it is an entertaining one, and worthwhile for those looking for a sampler of Elvis' best movie work.
