Thursday Movie Picks: Unforgettable Film Scores

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.

Midyear Movie Madness 2017

It has come to my attention that the year 2017 has almost hit its mid-point and with that in mind, I figured I’d recap what has happened movie wise this year so far. This post is inspired by the popular Mid-Year Book Freak Out tag that I’ve seen around in the book community but since I’m still all about being a movie blogger at heart, I decided to turn it into a Midyear Movie Madness instead. So this is a post that will recap the last 6 months of 2017 in terms of movies, and to make things more interesting, I’m only sticking to movies I saw in the theater!

There are a few spoilers ahead, you’ve been warned.

# 114 – Jack Sparrow is coming back!

I usually don’t post news about movies that are being made without the trailer (which means the movie is in post-production) but you’ll never know, I might start to do just that next year. Until then here is the newest trailer I have found, Pirates of Caribbean 4. There are two good things about it – the trailer doesn’t give away too much (but just enough) and Jack Sparrow seems to be as good as before. Then there is that ? thing – Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom have left the Caribbean (to better things I hope – Keira is doing lots of good movies and Orlando is soon coming a father). I don’t know if that is a good thing but I think that it just might because their story lines were played out while Jack Sparrow being as complicated as he is could never be played out. This being said, I’m not sure if there should be a 5th Pirates of Caribbean, I mean – enough is enough.

But here is the trailer for the fourth, Pirates of Caribbean: On Strange Tides with Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz that comes out May 20, 2011.
