I love both of these movies and you're spot on! The soundtrack for Sicario was a perfect match for the dread and darkness that was throughout the film. Such a good movie!Here's a couple from one of the brightest composers out there, who, unfortunately, died way too young a couple of years ago. His style was pretty unique and fit whatever movie he did absolutely perfect. His own album Orphée was spectacular and whenever he did a score it always had a bit of a horror and eerie vibe to it. Just listen to these two from Sicario and one from Arrival (Two of the best movies from the last decade).
This man managed to create tension with his music which no one seems to strive for today - it's always about making you cry or getting goosebumps instead of actually looking at the scene and create something which fits it 100%; And Jóhann Jóhannsson managed to do that every single time.
Now, non of these tracks seems spectacular if you haven't seen the movies (or at least the scenes), but the mixture of visuals and sounds just lifts it to the next level. I will say that, Heptapod B is a small masterpiece imo.
Ha, the movie (Mandy) is bat-shit crazy, I absolutely love it!I love both of these movies and you're spot on! The soundtrack for Sicario was a perfect match for the dread and darkness that was throughout the film. Such a good movie!
Jóhann Jóhannsson also did the score for Mandy, which was a crazy psychedelic, visually rich action/horror film with Nic Cage. Again, his work was brilliant.
I haven't heard of the movie, but Le Planète Sauvege sounds like it's right up my alley. These musical picks are awesome, I love that I'm not aware of these films! Gives me a chance to explore more cinema, of which I'm also a big fan. A few years back, I've stopped watching too many mainstream movies and gained an interest in independent, foreign, or film festival selections (Sundance, Cannes, etc.) movies. There's so many great and hidden cinematic gems out there and it's been a pleasure to gather an awesome film collection.Ha, the movie (Mandy) is bat-shit crazy, I absolutely love it!
Btw., have you ever listened to the soundtrack from Le Planète Sauvege? That one is sooooo good and psychedelic. Funnily enough it's pretty much the same track in various variations.
This one is from one of my favourite movies from 2013 with a score, which pretty much sets the tone of the entire movie. It's without a doubt Tom Hardys best perfomance and Baby is in my mind the best track from the soundtrack. If you haven't watched the movie I highly recommend it!
There's also something incredibly tender about this track from the Estonian movie Mandariinid - it's so sad and filled with emotion.
I could seriously go on and on and on, but I'll stop for now and post some more tomorrow, ha!
The Star Wars themes are always epic! Back in the early 2000's, there were a lot of movie soundtracks remixed to trance; while some of them were cheesy, there were some absolute bangers, haha. This one was really popular where I lived as a teenager. Probably best to talk about that in another thread, but here's a clip of a local DJ playing it:
Checked out the trailer and as soon as I saw the Official Selection for Festival de Cannes graphic, I knew it was going to be sick. Will check it out.Time for something more raw, brutal and completely energetic. This soundtrack was made in 2015 by Jed Kurzel for the movie Macbeth starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cottilard - there's something incredibly sad and harrowing about this score, which made me forget about pretty much everything for 4 minutes.
The adaptation itself is mesmerizing and I honestly think it's one of Fassbenders best performances so far. The movie is very overlooked and so unique and almost psychedelic, which the score represents. Here I'll post the main theme "Macbeth" and the two "The Child Pt. 1 & 2". Unfortunately it never had a vinyl release, but the movie itself I have in two copies, one a UK copy with included artwork.
Did you grow up with the system? I did, mostly. So we might be a biased, but I think I agree with you for the most part. Nintedo has Koji Kondi for starters. Im thinking that nintendo has a bit more of the actually memorable themes and joyful vgm's out there, but that might not be true.In my opinion, the soundtrack of Nintendo games is far superior compared to the other systems in most cases.
