Score – A Film Music Documentary promises to give us a privileged look inside the musical challenges and creative secrecy surrounding the film score. Written and directed by Matt Schrader; John Williams, Hans Zimmer, Quincy Jones, Trent Raznor and several more of Hollywood’s premier composers are featured…

I don’t really know many film score composers by name, except Hans Zimmer and the unfortunately late James Horner. Zimmer and Horner created music for Inception (2010) and Titanic (1996) respectively. Two films that have undoubtably helped shape the unapologetic and fully dedicated film lover that I have become. I imagine and hope that Horner (who doesn’t seem to have been mentioned in this trailer) will be featured. After all, the Titanic soundtrack is one of the most recognisable. It’s also the first movie soundtrack I ever purchased, thanks to Horner and James Cameron’s great work.

Score: A Film Music Documentary Release Dates: June 16th, 2017 (US)…

THE HOLIDAY (2006): Good At Christmas & Any Other Time The Mood Strikes…

Set in England and L.A during the festive season, The Holiday stars Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black and Cameron Diaz.

Written and directed by Nancy Meyers, the stories of the four main and very relatable characters is beautifully told and features just the perfect musical score by the one and only Hans Zimmer.

My favourite scene which I’m is also the favourite of many others is the one in the  the fort that features two talented child actresses. The Holiday is a film to watch when you’re in the mood for a good romance/ comedy, whether it’s Christmas or not. There’s also a a certain Bridget Jone’s Diary (2001) vibe to enjoyed.

Watch it because it’s good.

INCEPTION (2010): Only If Other Films Would Stay Away From The Music

Part of what makes Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) so very good, is Hans Zimmer’s brilliant musical score.

Unfortunately, since the the film’s release, seemingly far lesser movies keep using it. I say ‘seemingly far lesser’ because I can’t actually see myself ever watching any of the offending titles.

I admit, I’m probably too attached to the original film and music, but all the trailers I’ve seen that use the Inception score really don’t look very promising. If they did, I wouldn’t be writing this.

You only have to watch the following Airborne (2012) trailer to see and understand.

Eeewwww indeed! To help get that gross Airborne taste out of your mouth, here are two fantastic Inception trailers…
