    Hook Main Theme -Hook-John Williams



    35th anniversary of the Transformers movie this year, and I showed it to a friend for the first time – He loved it. It’s a pop cultural classic and goofy fun.

    How to reduce an entire theater of young boys into tears.

    “Autobots, transform and roll out!”
    “Decepticons, attack!

    Unicron, the Chaos-Bringer

    I have summoned you here for a purpose..
    Nobody summons Megatron!”
    Then it pleases me to be the first…


    No playlist would be complete without this peak 80’s classic:

    “One shall stand, one shall fall!”
    “Why throw away your life so recklessly?!”
    “That’s a question you should ask yourself, Megatron.”


      Watched Black Widow


      I’m a huge movie soundtrack buff, I have well over 100 scores. Some of my favorites would have to be Bear McCreary’s score for “10 Cloverfield Lane”, which has this amazing Bernard Herman sound to it, and sounds natural within a bunker. Speaking of which, you can’t go wrong with Herman, specifically his score to “Vertigo”, the best song of which is “Scene D’Amour”. “The Night Window” from “1917” a few years ago is also amazing.


      American Psycho – “Hip to Be Square” by Huey Lewis and the News

      “Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in ’83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically.   The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost.  He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor…

      Huey released this, Fore, their most accomplished album.  I think their undisputed masterpiece is “Hip to be Square”, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics.  But they should, because it’s not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it’s also a personal statement about the band itself.”

      – Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale)



      While I am a big fan of film scores, I am not a fan a movie soundtracks.

      (soundtrack and score are two very different genres)

      For example, the movie Batman (1989);

      The film’s score was composed by Danny Elfman.

      The film’s soundtrack was performs by Prince (all songs, including the sing “bat-dance”).

      For example, the movie Armageddon (1998);

      The film’s score was composed by Trevor Rabin.

      The film’s soundtrack “The Album” was performs by various artists (including Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” song.)

      Lots of times the soundtrack comes with the label “music from and inspired by…” and they include the songs that were played for thirty-second or so during the end credits, or is “The Album” of the movie.


      FILM SCORES for me!


      The true OG Dark Lord. He doesn’t even appear in the book yet Tolkien successfully invoked a feeling of dread whenever his name was mentioned. Truly badass.

      Reminder that Sauron was at his weakest during the time period of the Hobbit/Lord of the Rings yet he still very nearly won towards the end.



      That Turbo Kid was a trip. Silvestri is a name I haven’t heard in a while, so I will add on after this. One person mentions James Horner, another name I forgot.

      That horn is jammin. Music used to have that saxophone. Missing these days, the instruments.



      “Mithrandir… Why him? Why the halfling?”
      “…I don’t know… Saruman believes it is only great power which can hold evil in check… But I find it is the small things… simple acts of love and kindness, which keep the darkness at bay… Why did I choose Bilbo? Perhaps it is because I am afraid… and he gives me courage.”
