Music · Writing Tips and Film Critique

Talking About Music Now

I had an idea to make a quick video about the music that we hear while watching movies. Sometimes, I feel like the music fits so extremely well, like Bill Conti’s score in the Karate Kid films (especially Karate Kid III), Basil Poledouris’ music in the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, or any John Williams music to whatever movie he was scoring — the man was a serious musical genius — while at other times, I feel like the music is just so out of place that it stands out in all the wrong ways, such as when No Doubt’s “Just A Girl” played during a Captain Marvel action scene.

For my first video on music choice, I decided to replace the music played during Superman’s big moment in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, because I wondered what Henry Cavill’s Superman would look like while the classic John Williams Superman music was at his back. The result? It’s quite a difference.

The video is less than 2 minutes long, so if you’re interested in hearing the difference a change in tune can make but don’t have a lot of time on your hands, this video is a good length for you. Give it a listen and tell me what you think. 🙂
