    What can be said about the genius of this score?

  • Ep. 98 - Alan Silvestri's 'Ready Player One'

    There is no question that Alan Silvestri's score to Spielberg's 'Ready Player One' is one of our favorites. From referencing his own music from 'Back to the Future', to quoting music written by Max Steiner, Wendy Carlos, and Akira Ifukube, the three cues featured in this scene are an example of t...

  • Ep. 91 - Patrick Doyle's 'A Little Princess'

    It is no secret that Patrick Doyle is one of our absolute favorite composers, and we love the score to 'A Little Princess', the 1995 film directed by the great Alfonso Cuarón. The score is filled with so many great cues, it was difficult to pick just one. The mix of western and eastern motifs com...

  • Ep. 89 - Leonard Bernstein's 'West Side Story'

    Inspired by 'Romeo & Juliet', 'West Side Story' is nearly a perfect film in its craftsmanship between sound & image, and tells a deeply moving story as two cultures collide in New York City. The entire beginning is shot entirely with music, dance, little dialogue, and in our minds is one of the m...

    "Pure Imagination", sung by the great Gene Wilder (who played the character of Willy Wonka), was composed by Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley, who both were also nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score for the film.

    It is without question that this film stands on its own as one of the be...

    In a second tribute to James Newton Howard this week, we are featuring his incredible score to the 2007 film, "The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep".

    There is nothing more iconic than Kevin Bacon's journey to overturn a ban on dancing instituted by the efforts of a local minister, especially using Kenny Loggins' iconic tune 'Footloose' to do it. The track itself hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and received 1985 Academy Award nominations for...

    Alan Silvestri, who composed the score for 'The Avengers', returned to score both 'Infinity War' and its sequel.

  • Ep. 47 - Hans Zimmer's 'Wonder Woman 1984' (4K HDR)

    We figured it would be a great follow-up to the previous Score Cue Snapshot by featuring Patty Jenkins' next superhero project, 'Wonder Woman 1984'. This time, the film was scored by Academy-Award winning composer, Hans Zimmer and features three (!) cues from the score release. It is our longest ...

    There is no question that Patty Jenkins' 'Wonder Woman' is considered to be one of the best superhero films to-date.

  • Ep. 11 - James Newton Howard's 'Treasure Planet'

    James Newton Howard's score for the 2002 animated film 'Treasure Planet' was able to capture the emotion and adventurous spirit of the main character, Jim Hawkins. It's a beautiful theme that starts out simple but swells into something magnificent, not only listen to, but also to experience, as t...

  • Ep. 40 - John Williams' 'The Rise of Skywalker' (4K HDR)

    Different from the previous episode, this one focuses on a beautiful and tender moment between Ben and Rey, after Ben uses the Force to revive her at the cost of his own life.
