It’s Sunday, and what better way to celebrate it than with the return of me! Talking about some super soundtracks!
Ok, so it’s been a good while since I’ve talked about soundtracks (one of my favourite genres), so I may just be a tad bit rusty about this.
I’ve seen a few good movies these past few weeks, but the most recent Netflix gem that I stumbled upon was actually a concert for the music from Inside Llewyn Davis. That movie actually has a LOT of great tunes, and Oscar Isaac did an amazing job - highly recommend people seeing it - if you can tolerate folksy “musicals” (I don’t want to call it a musical, but it does have a bunch of songs being performed…so…yea.)
The concert that I found though - Another Day, Another Time - celebrated the music and artists that either were involved with the film, or were also in the same vein as the music featured on the soundtrack.
So, I watched and laughed and felt content once it was over…and then immediately felt like watching it again. I also discovered a few new favourite artists - The Avett Brothers, The Punch Brothers, and especially The Milk Carton Kids.
One of my favourite performances of the night was a song called “The Auld Triangle”. A few things struck me about it:
Check out both the film and the concert - seriously. So. Good.
Been watching Hannibal on Netflix.
So good. Great cinematography too. Lighting is great. Acting…also great. Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter is real great.
It’d be pretty hard to be on a show like that though. Especially on the special effects team and on the props team. Making all of them fake body parts…bah.
Not really…natural. Is it?
It’s a quarter to one…in the morning. I definitely should be sleeping.
