The Musical Score for ‘Tenet’ Should Be Nominated for An Oscar

TENET is a strange masterpiece that takes a lot of brain power and concentration to understand but the one thing that blares into one’s senses and announces itself from the very get-go is the music.

Sticking to Hans Zimmer’s distinct and broody musical theme, Ludwig Göransson brought a flavor to this film that felt unlike anything I’ve heard before. Filled with synthesized beats that vibrated your senses in IMAX and a vague Western-sounding theme for The Protagonist, this movie never lets up. Just listen to this piece here for the very beginning of the film and you’ll understand why this score deserves an Oscar nomination.

It sticks into the soul, becoming as much a piece of the movie as the characters and plot. And like the film, it never lets up. It doesn’t apologize for its occasional assault on your neurons or its constant presence. It is a powerful piece of music that feels so perfect with this film and yeah, I love it!

I’ve already saved a few pieces on my Spotify because I love it that much.

If you’ve seen TENET do you think it should be nominated for an Oscar? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.

‘Black is King’: Yeah…Just Watch It

I’ve watched Black is King twice in two days to see if my initial reaction was the appropriate reaction and yeah, after just watching the visual album again this morning, it is very clear that this is an artistic masterpiece.

Beyoncé hasn’t done much in a while. There was that Netflix film, Homecoming, which was an in-depth look at her 2018 performance of her Grammy-winning album, Lemonade, at Coachella but it still wasn’t giving us anything new. This, however, is what Beyoncé’s fans have been waiting for since 2016, another powerful album that will have people dancing and singing in their houses for weeks to come.

This next visual album, however, is like I said another masterpiece. Continue reading ‘Black is King’: Yeah…Just Watch It

My Favorite Disney Songs

One of the reasons why I love animated Disney movies so much are the classic songs that fill you with happiness and cover your arms in goosebumps. Those songs are what make movies like The Little Mermaid and Aladdin so incredibly memorable and enjoyable. Without these glorious songs I don’t think those movies would be quite as magical as they are still to this day. So, since I was thinking about Disney songs today, I’m going to share with you the ballads that make me the happiest and urge me to sing along. Enjoy!

“Under the Sea”

Who doesn’t love “Under the Sea?” I have never seen The Little Mermaid and yet this song is so amazing and fun to sing that I know it almost entirely by heart. Especially the last section of the song. It’s absolutely brilliant and it reminds me every time I hear it why I love Disney so much.

“When You Wish Upon A Star”

This just might be one of the most beautiful Disney songs ever created, for its inspiring lyrics and melodic tone is legitimately lovely. This is definitely one of my favorite Disney songs.

Why ‘The Lord of the Rings’ Is Amazing: The Music

Music is integral to a movie’s success and memorability. Take Star Wars, the Rocky movies, or even Indiana JonesJawsJurassic Park, and Harry Potter. The GodfatherHaloween, and The Terminator. Music is the soul of a film. It can make or break a movie and it is only truly great movies that we remember instantly just through that film’s particular score.

The Lord of the Rings is an epic tale of heroes fighting against all odds to defeat a terrible evil. There are disturbing confrontations and grand battles. Forbidden romances and strong friendships. Triumphant moments and tear-inducing scenes. And all of this is enhanced by an incredible score.

Howard Shore won two Oscars for Best Original Score with The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King for a good reason. Embuing the movies with a sense of unparalleled epicness the music helps build and destroy our emotions all in a single viewing.

From battle scenes teeming with grandeur from the intense singing of the choir to the more melodic tones designed to make you want to cry your eyes out, the music is a major factor in why these films are still some of the best ever made.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

Oscar Week Countdown: Who’s Going To Win? (Day 3)

It’s not going to be long before we get to see who takes home the awards this Sunday night and I’m having such a fun time predicting the winners of the various categories. Today I’m looking at the potential victors for the categories featuring Best Original Screenplay and Best Original Song. Enjoy!

Best Original Screenplay:

The Favourite

The Favourite is a fascinating original tale of the turbulent backstories of the British royals. While I haven’t seen the film it definitely stands out as an instant film of intrigue. Here’s the synopsis.

In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.

It definitely sounds rather interesting.
