5 Times Music Enhanced Our Emotions During an Epic Scene

Published

Friends, this is my 100th article for Moviepilot. For those of you reading that following me, thank you so much for continuing to follow. For those who are new, thank you for taking the time to read. Today I decided to write about one of my favorite things, movie music. In my opinion, movie music is what takes a C grade movie to a B grade movie; and obviously a B grade movie to an A movie. Let’s begin with one of my favorites and a more recent. one

1. Marvel’s The Avengers (2012)

You may or may not have forgotten how awesome this scene is. But that dramatic moment after the Hulk gives the Chitauri vessel a one hitter quitter and The Avengers’ theme music starts up as they pose together, which then, in my opinion, comes together as one of the greatest scenes in comic book movie history. Maybe even one of the best in any movie history.

Music by Alan Silvestri

2. Spider-Man (2002)

I know this movie seems old to a lot of my readers, but for me, it’s like it made its cinematic debut yesterday. This movie as a whole is one of the greatest comic book hero movies ever made. It was completely ahead of its time, and the ending theme is one of the greatest pre-credit scenes of all-time!

Music by Danny Elfman

3. Matrix Reloaded (2003)

I’m now going to taking it waaaay back my friends. If you were born under a bridge, grew up under one and now currently reside under one and somehow haven’t seen this scene from Matrix reloaded. You have fully and truly missed out on some of the beauty of life. This by far was a movie way ahead of its time. The Burly Brawl scene between Neo and Agent Smith’s was only made greater by its unbelievable soundtrack

Music by Juno Reactor vs Don Davis.

4. The Dark Knight (2008)

I don’t care who you are. We all know this is one of the best movies ever made. And of course the soundtrack was amazing. But this ending with Gary Oldman saying, “He’s a watchful protector, a dark knight!” was amazing with the Dark Knight soundtrack rolling in.

Music by  Hans Zimmer.

5. Star Wars Episode III (2005)

Rise Lord Vader

And of course, one of the most epic scenes of all time. “Rise Lord Vader” The music playing in the background makes for one of the greatest and most dramatic scenes in Star Wars franchise history. Thank you John Williams for never letting me, or anyone who loves Star Wars, down.

If you’ve read this far, please feel free to follow me friends. Thanks for reading!

Kevin Smith Talks, The Last Shot Of ‘Episode IX’ – “It Will Melt Your Mind”

“When you see this it will melt your mind”

With 2019’s San Diego Comic-Con International coming to a close, many are trying to gather themselves and wrap their heads around the overload of information that spilled its way out of the fan favorite festival. With all the news that usually accompanies Comic-Con, fans can sift through and take away what means most to them. Well, per usual, Kevin Smith has dropped more than just his ‘Jay And Silent Bob: Reboot’ trailer. In a recent interview to come out of Comic-Con, Smith was asked about his visit to J.J. Abrams ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ set, and he did not disappoint:

“There was a scuttlebutt about a set there at Pinewood. A big set that they were like, ‘You have to see this, when you see this it will melt your mind.’ I was like ‘What was it?’ They’re like ‘Ask J.J.’ And so I asked J.J. I was like, ‘They keep telling me I should see the set.’ And he goes, ‘Don’t.’ I said ‘Why?’ He said, ‘It’s the last shot of the movie.’ So I was like, ‘Well, now I REALLY want to see it.’ He said, ‘You don’t want to be spoiled. You want to be in a theater when this happens, trust me.’ And then other people on the crew were like, ‘Bro, I wish I hadn’t seen it. I’m glad I did, but it will melt your mind.”

I’m not sure what level of “God-Like” will power one would have to have, in order to not take at least the smallest peek at what Abrams has in store for the conclusion for Episode IX. Never the less, Smith resisted and continued to explain his reasoning for not even taking a quick look:

“So for that reason alone, as inquisitive as I am, and curious as I am, I desperately wanted to go look. But when you talk to the magician and the magician’s like ‘Trust me on this one.’ Sometimes as human beings we want to know how they pull the rabbit out of the hat. But J.J.’s such a magical magician that I’m just like ‘You know what? OK, trick me.’ I’ll wait and get tricked. Even though I could’ve seen what it was, I was like ‘I’ll sit back. I’ll like your plan.’ He’s never let me down so far.”

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is shrouded in secrecy. It sounds like we will still have to wait until December 20th to discover the mysteries that Abrams has in store for us. Check out the video below of Kevin Smith’s interview.

Daisy Ridley Promises Epic Lightsaber Duel In ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’

“We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”

The lightsaber duel is a staple of Star Wars lore. Every episode has featured some of the most iconic battles in cinematic history. Many fans were disappointed with the lack of saber action in Episode VII, even though the film primarily focused on Rey trying to discover her true place within the universe. ‘The Last Jedi’ attempted to give us more action but was over shadowed by Director Rian Johnson’s character arc choices. Going into ‘Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker’ J.J. Abrams knows what’s at stake, while bringing us the conclusion to one of the most beloved franchises in movie history. In a recent interview with Wired about Episode IX, Daisy Ridley shed some light on what we can expect in the final installment:

“The interesting thing about this film is that we concentrate more on the fact that [the lightsabers] are light,” Ridley told the publication, “Because the [old] lightsabers were so heavy, as Eunice [Huthart] said, who is our new stunt coordinator, that it was more like broadsword fighting, which isn’t technically what it’s supposed to be because lightsabers are supposed to be light, by nature.”

Since the “Skywalker” lightsaber that was a focal point in ‘Episode VII’ was destroyed during ‘The Last Jedi,’ it would appear that Rey will be getting herself a new “Lighter” saber. Daisy also, went on further to suggest we will be witnessing one of, if not the most epic Star Wars lightsaber duels of all time via Episode IX:

“So they actually made them lighter for us,”the actress continued “We in this film actually have perhaps one of the most epic fights in Star Wars.”

‘The Rise of Skywalker’ has a lot riding on it to properly conclude the “Skywalker Star Wars Saga.” J.J. Abrams is well aware of what’s at stake. One can only imagine that he will pull out all the stops to ensure one of the greatest endings in recent cinematic history.
