Ep. 71 - James Newton Howard's 'The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep'
Score Cue Snapshots! • Adventure, Fantasy, Kids and Family, Music, 09-Jun-2021
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". We really love this score, mainly because of the dynamic and emotional themes throughout. Similar to the last Snapshot, Howard's ability to score action, adventure, and emotion while there is no dialogue is his absolute forte; this scene is the perfect montage to demonstrate a complete spectrum of his composing dynamic. If you haven't seen the film, we recommend you do so!
