Summer Blockbusters - lacking the impactful soundtrack/music

12 May 2015 - 11:10 AM

Maybe it's just me, but lately films have been sorely lacking in the soundtrack and music choices. Nothing is sticking with me as I leave the theater.


Last year Guardians of the Galaxy absolutely nailed it with their choice of songs. "Come and get your love" w/ the Star Lord dance number was spot on in the opening scene. But other then GoTG, and the annoying Lego theme "Everything is Awesome", I can't recall any soundtrack or music from the last few years that is so ingrained into the film that the song/theme is just as important as any other facet.  Horror films continue to disappoint.


Marvel Universe - Except for AC/DC in Iron Man & GoTG, I've got nothing. Absolutely nothing comes to mind.


DC - Batman (Elfman's + Prince were awesome.) (Zimmer's TDK is very good. ) Zimmer's Man Of Steel, bleh. The John Williams' Superman theme still rules.



So are there scenes or films I should give another chance?



A couple of my all time favorites:

The Thing Main Theme - creepy as fug (btw, Childs was infected)



Reservoir Dogs - Stuck in the Middle




Walk up music - Was. Nationals trolling oppo during BP - NFL version

14 April 2015 - 09:51 AM

I heard the story this weekend of how the Washington Nationals are pumping slow music to troll the Met's during batting practice.



Nationals pump up the slow jams during visiting team’s batting practice
By Clinton Yates April 9

If you’ve been in the ballpark early enough to see the Mets take batting practice in this short season, you’ve been treated to some tremendous musical numbers. And by that, I mean, decidedly slow ballads that really don’t get you in the mood for baseball at all. The gimmick caught the attention of a few writers and fans on opening day, and before Thursday’s day game, the early comers were treated to Elton John, Sarah McLachlan and Sinead O’Connor.


I'd like to hear the huddle's choice of music for the Panther's rivals.


I'll start: Matt Ryan ---> "I'm every woman" Whitney Houston




Kid receives real bionic arm from Tony Stark (RDJr)

Robert Downey Jr. and Albert Manero, a #CollectiveProject student who founded Limbitless, surprised a very special child with a new bionic 3D printed arm at no cost to the family.


Very very cool.

Which one of you dunnit? $4.8M in gold stolen on I95 in NC

Armed robbers stole about $4.8 million in gold bars on Sunday from an armored truck traveling north along Interstate 95 from Florida to Massachusetts, authorities said Monday.

The two security guards working for Transvalue Inc. of Miami reported pulling off to the side of the interstate about 6:30 p.m. Sunday after their armored truck began having mechanical problems in Wilson County, the sheriff's office said.



IMHO, at least one of the drivers is in on the theft.

(Panda says he's drunk and in Canada? hmmmmmmm)


Sounds similar to the Loomis heist. I was on the Federal Grand Jury in '98 that overheard much of the evidence. They couldn't stop themselves from spending money and the wife told stores and the bank that the money (cash still wrapped) was from her husband signing to the be the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys (not as if Aikman had retired yet). If she had said the Browns or Chargers no one probably would have noticed.

Just watched Predestination [spoiler tags]
