[Musical Monday] Back to the Future

Last week, for the very first time - yes, you did read that right - I watched Back to the Future. Starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, Back to the Future is the first of three films that follow Marty and his friend, eccentric inventor Doc Brown, as they travel backwards, and forwards, in... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Blade Runner

Happy Monday, everyone. Today is the 68th birthday of Dutch actor Rutger Hauer. For this week's edition of Musical Monday I thought I'd take a look at arguably his most famous film, Blade Runner. Released in 1982 and directed by Ridley Scott, Blade Runner is set in the not too distant future where man has the... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Fanfare, please

In honour of last night's Golden Globes Awards ceremony, I thought I'd put the spotlight on some of the film studios that bring us the films we love. Whenever I hear Fox's fanfare I get shivers down my spine: I'm where I want to be, in the cinema, and I'm about to be transported to... Continue Reading →

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I can't believe it's the 9th of January already... So, to today's Musical Monday post, the charming The Wizard of Oz. Released in 1939, the film shot 17-year-old Judy Garland to stardom for her portrayal of the film's heroine, Dorothy Gale. After being swept... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] The Breakfast Club

This week's Musical Monday post is from a classic 1980s film, The Breakfast Club.

This week on the drive to work I have been enjoying the vocal delights of British rocker... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Hedwig’s Theme

It's time to feel festive! I'm not sure why but the Harry Potter series always reminds me of Christmas. The films don't specifically feature Christmas, though, so I'm not sure why it reminds me of the festive season. It is mentioned, of course, as the films do follow a year (or thereabouts) in Harry's life.... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Requiem for A Dream

Following on from the very jolly Musical Monday posts on The Magnificent Seven and Jurassic Park, this week's Musical Monday takes a look at a much darker film, Darren Aronofsky's Requiem for A Dream, and it's recurring theme, Clint Mansell's Lux Æterna. I first saw Requiem for A Dream about a year ago. However, I'd... Continue Reading →

[Musical Monday] Jurassic Park

Following on from last week's debut Musical Mondays post, this week's post is dedicated to one of my favourite films, Jurassic Park. If you're a regular reader of this blog, you may have read my Favourites Friday post about Jurassic Park - check it out here if you haven't. Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park is one...

Inspired by recent posts from some of my favourite bloggers, including Ruth's post on her top five favourite Hans Zimmer scores, Nostra's Monday Question on soundtracks, Castor's Q&A on The Best Use of Music in the Movies and Ben's post on the wonderful John Williams, I've decided to introduce a new, regular feature on my...
