Film scores have such an important part in creating a mood and elevating the images on screen. Unfortunately I’m a very lousy movie lover when it comes to scores and I definitely don’t pay enough attention. Mostly because I’m more of a visual person than auditory. There are, despite my lack of awareness towards scores, a few that have stood out. These are three film scores that I have listened to from start to finish… more than once.
Will A Quiet Place do the same for horror in 2018, that Get Out did to horror in 2017? Some say yes, other say no. For me, by adding layers upon layers to a genre that I have stayed away from, both movies have changed my perspective on horror films and what that this genre could really do.
It has been… well let’s just say it has been a long time since I last participated in a blogathon and I think it’s time to do one. More specifically, it’s time for Two Dollar Cinema’s Mt. Rushmore of Movies Blogathon! Here you have to choose top four anything cinematic, from 4 favourite villains to your top 4 childhood television shows, the possibilities are endless! And with such grand freedom, of course I had to carve four epic beards into my Mt. Rushmore of Movies.
I’ll make this post short and simple – I watched Something borrowed a while back and I made the draft but I really didn’t take notes or anything. This has led me to this dead end situation where I don’t really remember the movie that well. I remember the plot and the beginning but I can’t place the fact how it ended – probably the way all those romantic comedies end.
Something Borrowed has two leading ladies, one of them Ginnifer Goodwin who plays Rachel, a sophisticated lawyer who has fallen in love with her lawyer friend Dex (Colin Egglesfield). To make things difficult like all the romantic comedies try to do, Dex is engaged to Darcy who is portrayed by Kate Hudson and who is also Rachel’s best friend. John Krasinski plays a friend of Rachel as well and he is also in love with Rachel like Dex actually is so there is some romantic cube going on there.
The main plot is about Rachel and Dex having an affair behind Darcy’s back and all that builds up into a big fight and a brake-up and they all live happily ever after. Sounds about right I think. And since I watched this while studying for my exams I found it entertaining and helpful to my tired brain, hence the 2,5 out of 5 for this one.
