Music for the Ears.

Whenever I watch a film, I pay special attention to the music. I just love film music. And in recent years, I feel modern composers have been raising the bar in terms of talent, serving up scores that are all very different and very brilliant. So here is a post completely dedicated to them. Enjoy.
Oh, and I'm ending the lame "Thing I want for my birthday." If that party yesterday showed me anything, I guess it was that... too much greediness isn't great? So I'll settle for whatever. Filmic.

The bird also wants me to say that I like your blog, which I do.

Undy, you may want to say goodbye to Freak; he's likely to have an accident soon.

Emma said...

To Movie Freak: Good to see you replaced LOTR with Nemo. There may have been an accident if you hadn't.

To both of you: Why don't you bother writing the composer?
