2014 SO FAR: THE BEST FILM SCORES

The Cinema Cynic

I have always loved film music; it can play a vital part of the emotional experience and engagement of a film, but is also just great to listen to in isolation as a wonderfully composed piece of music. In fact, the music can often elevate a film from feeling better than it actually is and rescue some shoddy screenwriting or directing. Though however, sometimes a wonderful score is completely wasted in the film it is in, and it is best just to listen to the album and forget about the film.

Electronic Music -V- Rock ‘n’ Roll (show down time)

Electronic Music -V- Rock ‘n’ Roll
Show Down Time

The other day I had a bit of down time & one thing I usually do in my down time is watch TED talks online! You know the ones?!? (If not, google TED talks and rock your world!) Anyway I came across a talk that Mark Ronson did, he is a famous music producer & D-J responsible for Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” album (Also one of my heroes!) his talk on sampling and how artists chop/cut/edit old hits to make now fresh new grooves / songs & as a producer that uses lots of samples I found it very inspiring! Please if you get this time check out the link!

Anyway… … … Not the reason for this blog! Although “sampling could be a awesome topic for discussion! (How Controversial)

As Mark Ronson makes his way through his TED talk…
