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)
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!

Matrix 4: “This is a gift. It was just very exciting.” | Carrie-Anne Moss
It was 2003, nearly two decades since the last time we saw Carrie-Anne Moss and Keanu Reeves grace the screen in the sci-fi epic ‘Matrix Revolutions,’ as the computer hacker Trinity and the anomaly known as Neo. The Matrix trilogy is in my opinion, one of the greatest sci-fi action epics ever created. ‘Revolutions,’ gave us a somewhat definitive ending to the trilogy, having the heroes sacrificing it all to save humanity from impending doom at the hands of machines.
Fast forward to present day, we are all waiting with high anticipation for the fourth installment to a trilogy that was all but one hundred percent concluded. The Wachowski’s originally stated, there would never be a fourth movie. And that the Matrix franchise ended the way they intended. But, now armed with a new, beautiful script, Lana Wachowski convinced original stars, Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss that a fourth film needed to be made and tell a new story that would be relevant to issues plaguing our society today. In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Moss explained what brought her back to the franchise.
“When it was brought to me in the way that it was brought to me, with incredible depth and all of the integrity and artistry that you could imagine, I was like, ‘This is a gift.’ It was just very exciting.”
Keanu went on to second Moss’s statements, saying that the script is what brought him back for a fourth film. As well as the opportunity to work with Lana again.
“Lana Wachowski wrote a beautiful script and a wonderful story that resonated with me,” Reeves added. “That’s the only reason to do it. To work with her again is just amazing. It’s been really special, and the story has, I think, some meaningful things to say, and that we can take some nourishment from.”
Lana Wachowski has decided to mostly direct all the action scenes herself. “John Wick” directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch were stunt coordinators on the original Matrix film and had this to say about Lana’s work on the new installment.
“What makes [Lana] so great is she directs her own action,” Stahelski said. “We’ve had second unit directors on some of the [‘Matrix’ films] just because of the logistics involved. But of late, and especially on ‘Matrix 4,’ she’s directing her own action. The second units for them are mostly establishing shots, the B-sides of the some of the compositions for some locations. But Lana, she does her own action. She weaves it into the main unit stuff, which is why their stuff looks so good.”
Warner Bros. is scheduled to release “The Matrix 4” in theaters nationwide May 21, 2021.
Dune: Our First Look At Timothée Chalamet In The Sci-Fi Remake
Frank Herbert’s epic sci-fi novel Dune, sees young Paul Atreides preparing to leave the life he knows for a desolate, dangerous mining planet known as Arrakis. His wealthy family will oversee extraction of a spice vital to the galaxy.
The image above shows Paul Atreides on his home planet of Caladan, unaware of the dangers awaiting him on his families new journey, brought on by the brutal rival House Harkonnen.
Chalamet had this to say about his upcoming character portrayal:
“The immediately appealing thing about Paul was the fact that in a story of such detail and scale and world-building, the protagonist is on an anti-hero’s-journey of sorts.”
“He thinks he’s going to be sort of a young general studying his father and his leadership of a fighting force before he comes of age, hopefully a decade later, or something like that.” Chalamet said. “But fate has a different timetable for him. And he may possess powers even his trainers could not anticipate.”
Dune is a 1965 science fiction novel by American author Frank Herbert, originally published as two separate serials in Analog magazine. It tied with Roger Zelazny’s This Immortal for the Hugo Award in 1966, and it won the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel.
‘Dune,’ is still set for release December 18, 2020 starring, Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, David Bautista and Josh Brolin
