Score

But since I can always get down with another mention of the Swarmatron, let’s go with it.

Here’s a lengthy interview with Trent and Atticus, where sound and the score are covered:

Here’s a video where you can listen to the full-length version of “Hand Covers Bruise” which plays throughout the film.

I promise that after the Oscars, I will tone down the fangirl posts – at least until we get hit with the score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but that isn’t until the end of the year.

100 Films in 2011: The Social Network

by Jamie Sanford on January 26, 2011

Keeping it going with a new movie, taking it away from the older movies I’ve been covering.  I have already talked a bit in other places about the score, composed by one of my favorite musicians, Trent Reznor, with his co-composer and bandmate Atticus Ross.

Actually, let ‘s cover that right now – the score for this movie is fantastic and has already won a Golden Globe, amongst other awards.  I purchased the album a few months ago when it came out, and it’s fantastically dark and works so well in the film.


It’s a hot deal!  The MP3 download of the album is $5.00 on Amazon.

6. The Social Network (not available to stream on Netflix Instant Watch)

I really enjoyed this movie – although my husband has changed it a bit with his research into how different the real story is from the way things are portrayed in the movie.  However, I think that the way the creation of the site is portrayed is so interesting and exciting, and the rest of the story is about friends who start a project, and how that spectacularly falls apart.

The DVD is great too – it’s a 2-disc set, and there are 2 commentaries as well as a disc full of special features – the “making of” documentary is really well done, and there are a group of smaller features about visuals, the post-production, the score, etc.

This isn’t the movie for everyone to own – unless you really like the movie or you are a special features nerd.  I love some special features and commentaries, so this is definitely for me.  However, I would suggest to most people that they watch the movie by renting it before committing to the DVD purchase.

This fantastic DVD that I am happy to now own is $12.99 from Amazon.

Music from The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

by Jamie Sanford on June 29, 2010

Yes, another Twilight post. Eclipse comes out tonight!

One of my favorite things about the Twilight films have been their soundtracks. In addition to the traditional “mix tape” that a soundtrack tends to be, Summit Entertainment has also released the scores from all of the films as well.

I am recommending both. I can give a thumbs up on the soundtrack, as it has been out for a few weeks and I’m playing it a lot. It has artists such as Muse, Sia, Florence + The Machine, The Black Keys, and more. I haven’t heard the score yet, but it comes out today and come on, it’s Howard Shore, who always writes a great score. I don’t doubt that this will be spectacular.



Both CDs are available for $12.99 on Amazon (click on the image for the link to the Amazon pages). Buy them for your favorite Twilight fan today!
