Here’s The Tracklist For Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Soundtrack
eelyajekiM   |  

Baby Driver starring Ansel Elgort

Golden Earring‘s “Radar Love”; The Button Down Brass‘ “Tequila”; Martha and the Vandellas‘ “Nowhere To Run”; and Incredible Bongo Band‘s “Bongolia”: these are just a few of the songs that can be heard in the trailers for Edgar Wright‘s Baby Driver. Since the film made its festival debut earlier this year at SXSW, critics have been feeding the hype machine, going as far as saying it is one of the best movies of the year.

Judging by the looks of the trailers and featurettes, it’s easy to see why. The action in Baby Driver practically syncs up to the music. And I say practically because I haven’t seen it yet. But if you are a fan of amazing soundtracks, then the newly released tracklist for the film’s soundtrack should have your attention. Check out which songs made the cut, below.

Listen To Samples From Alan Silvestri’s Score For ‘The Avengers’

The Avengers banner

A new rock-packed soundtrack for next month’s Marvel super-team spectacular The Avengers is scheduled for release three days before the movie opens (you can pre-order Avengers Assemble here), but no U.S. date has been set for a release of the film’s orchestral score composed by Alan Silvestri.

Amazon’s UK site has the Avengers score being released on April 20 and has posted brief snippets from all 18 tracks of the album. You can check out a preview of Silvestri’s score here.

It is exactly what you would expect an Alan Silvestri score for a grand-scale summer blockbuster to be, a rousing action score meant to generate excitement and radiate emotion. I can’t wait to hear the score in its entirety and see it matched to the Joss Whedon-director superhero adventure on the biggest of movie screens.

Sample John Williams’ Score For ‘The Adventures of Tintin’

Steven Spielberg‘s motion-capture animated spectacular The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn won’t be released in theaters until around Christmas, but now you can listen to snippets of the music score by John Williams online at the German website Cinema Musica.

There will be 18 tracks in all on the U.S. release and the Cinema Musica article features brief cuts from each track. The score sounds absolutely wonderful, sprighty old school Williams adventure music with an airy European touch.

Music Review: Thor: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Week of Geek: Thor

Thor: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
CD | MP3
Patrick Doyle
Buena Vista Records
Release Date: May 3, 2011

One of the things I love most about seeing a movie for the first time is experiencing its music score. I have many favorites but the ones that affect me the most are the great adventure scores, from Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s jaunty and propulsive The Adventures of Robin Hood to John Williams’ endlessly hum-worthy Raiders of the Lost Ark. The best of these scores tend to plant themselves deep in my mind and always pipe up at moments when I need those sounds the most and my MP3 player is nowhere to be found. They calm my soul and motivate me to conquer each of life’s challenges, be they minor or potentially life-threatening, with a hearty laugh and my arms jutted forward like I could take off flying at any moment.

The Empire Strikes Back: A Track-by-Track Commentary of the Original Score

Week of Geek: The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back soundtrackThe Empire Strikes Back: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Special Edition)
Composer: John Williams
London Symphony Orchestra
1997 Release


It’s been thirty years since The Empire Strikes Back, the much-anticipated sequel to George Lucas’ 1977 mega-hit cultural touchstone Star Wars, opened in theaters around the world and the impact it made upon audiences and critics has not dulled a bit, and for good reason. The movie proved that the success of the first Star Wars film was no well-timed fluke and even a movie that essentially paid homage to space operas, samurai films, and westerns could evolve beyond its influences and become its own beast. Best of all it was better than Star Wars in every possible way: the script by Leigh Brackett (screenwriter of such classic films as The Big Sleep, Rio Bravo, and The Long Goodbye) and Lawrence Kasdan (who later went on to co-write Raiders of Lost Ark and enter his own directing career) opened up the universe Lucas had created and expanded the scope with an epic, serpentine tale that was more darker, richer, and emotional than the original and overflowing with memorable characters, and quotable dialogue; the direction by Irvin Kershner was professional and assured; and the cast, free of George Lucas’ stilted writing and relative inexperience with actors (despite the fact that he had directed the actor-heavy American Graffiti to great success), were able to give deeper and more nuanced performances under the direction of the deferential Kershner.

New ‘Where The Wild Things Are’ Images Set To The Full Soundtrack
The Movie God   |  

It’s just about that time: Spike Jonze‘s Where the Wild Things Are is about to finally be released in theaters on October 16, 2009. It’s been a while since the trailer was released and our excitement was at an all-time high, so right here and now you can listen to the entire movie soundtrack free online. Even better, while listening to the music that shall accompany this beautiful film, you can also check out a bunch of new images from the movie and its production. The soundtrack contains original songs by Karen O And The Kids — Karen O as in the singer of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

As you all likely know, the movie has endured a battle to get to our eyes, with rumors at one point claiming that the movie had been entirely scrapped and Jonze taken off the job by Warner Brothers because it was too dark and they wanted it more aimed at kids. Thankfully it was decided that the original vision was obviously the best, and things moved forward as planned.

Where the Wild Things Are is based on the novel by Maurice Sendak about a young boy named Max (Max Records) who becomes angry with his mother and travels dangerous seas to mystical lands inhabited by large creatures known as the Wild Things who decide to make Max their king.

Click on over to the other side to listen to the soundtrack and check out the images. The soundtrack was also released yesterday on CD, MP3, and vinyl. May I suggest throwing on the music before enjoying the pictures. Sets the tone quite nicely. Head on over to io9 for more images.

MP3 Deal: ‘Singin’ In The Rain – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack’
Empress Eve   |  

Today’s MP3 deal of the day over at Amazon today is the soundtrack to the movie Singin’ In The Rain for only $2.99.

I know, some of you are kneeling over in shock that I’m writing about music that isn’t metal (hey, that’s not even rock!), but I am still a movie lover, and let me tell you, I LOVE movie soundtracks and scores, especially if they’re from a musical.

This one is a true classic movie and one of the greatest musicals ever. I’m planning on listening to the soundtrack all night and think about my dearly departed loved ones who introduced me to classic movies like Singin’ In The Rain as a child (excuse me, I’m getting verklempt just thinking about it).

The 1952 musical comedy starred the singing and dancing talents of Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds — that’s Princess Leia’s mom for all you geeks out there, and that was enough for me to watch the movie when I was little.
