Two Music Movies, Pitch Perfect and Joyful Noise.

perfectpitchBoth these movies were released in 2012, and yes they are music driven movies. But both of these movies have something going for them.

Pitch Perfect, is the story of a college a capella singing group and the competition. Although I never want to give the whole plot away I would like to say that the start of this movie was what caught me. Know one expects someone to “blow chucks” as the phrase goes during a competition right onto the audience. From that moment on I figured this had to be a funny and surprising movie. Stars Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp (from True Blood) and more talented actors.
Song in this movie include: “The Sign”, “212, “Lost in It”, “Let It Whip”, “Punching in A Dream”, “Keep You”, “Don’t Move”, “Titanium”, “Cups”, “No Diggity”, “Bulletproof”, plus alot more.

joyfulnoise
Joyful Noise is the story of a church choirs competition. This shows that not all gospel music has to be old fashioned. The sub-story adds flavor to the mix and the music brings it all together. This movie stars Dolly Parton, Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer, Jeremy Jordan as well as many others including a small part by Kris Kristofferson.
Song in this movie include: “Not Enough”, “Man in the Mirror”, “Maybe I’m Amazed”, “From Here To The Moon and Back”, “Higher Medley”, and others.

See which one appeal to you more and above all enjoy the music.


Queen: Days Of Our Lives Blu-ray.

This Blu-ray that was released May of 2011, and has unseen footage as well rare interviews. It is split into two parts, with the Special features being that of music video’s, extended interviews and other stories.
This is one of the better documentaries of the life of a great band. I was amazed at the amount of information and wonderful clips that spanned the history of this band. I found myself getting all choked up towards the end of the documentary like Freddie had just died yesterday. Seeing the clips from the commemorative show made me remember back to all those great albums I own on vinyl.
I’m glad that the band has gone on, but we will always miss the very distinctive Freddie Mercury. His vocal range was amazing and his style was very much his own.
This documentary is worth a watch especially to Queen fans.


Movie Music..”The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” 2011

If you didn’t know the Musical score for this movie was written by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) and Atticus Ross. Within the movie though are song with keys in the plot of the movie.
One such piece is the song “Orinoco Flow” performed by Enya. During this part in the movie Mikael Blomkvist played by Daniel Craig is about to be murdered. What we found interesting is the killer here, who has been murdering women has a problem murdering a man. Could it be his mood music which he has used every time he kills a women? Enya is not a terribly macho piece of music for killing a man. It definitely puts the killer off his game. If you haven’t seen the movie I wont say anymore, but if you happen to watch it again, think about how it plays out with the soundtrack and the key songs.
