The Sound of Returning to Yellowstone

Movie and TV soundtracks are a musical art form reliant on imaginative pressure points and successful through emotional connection. Somewhere between the macro and the micro of the sound is the sweet spot of where we find ourselves between the intricately placed notes of the composer.

And in the case of the Paramount original series ‘Yellowstone,’ it’s composer Brian Tyler who has created a theme song as unique as the famed western escape.

For me, the ‘Yellowstone’ theme song draws me in by the past of Yellowstone yet I remain for the prospect of exploring a place like Prospector, Utah in the future.

Music Will Never Fall out of Favor With Us

Music is one of the most powerful forces in the world. The right song, lyrics, and sound can inspire us in ways that are–forgive me in advance–impossible to describe. And this motivational dynamic can occur instantaneously from hearing a quick, short succession of notes or words. We recall fond memories, tough times and/or are reminded of a dream we’re in pursuit of via a full, intensely determined sprint.

Ok, enough sneaky wordplay.

Here’s an extended version of the orchestral theme song from the recently released ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ that, like the film, adds spectacular accents that elevate the song to something bigger and better from the song’s simple yet defining origin.

So who wants to skydive HALO Jump into Paris?

The Truth Was Seen at 15,000 Feet

Go. 

See. 

Mission: Impossible – Fallout. 

Figure out a way to see this surreal–yet very real–action film that takes the franchise and genre to new heights with insane twists and turns.

Second:

Following up on a Jimmy’s Daily Planet article from a couple days ago…

Mission: Possible – James Corden Fell out of an Airplane.

Tom Wants James to Know the Truth

“I can do that.”

These are the words we first say to ourselves when we are 100% confident that a certain action that’s wildly intense looks easy. And by the time we realize these devastating few words have been heard out loud, it’s too late…

While promoting ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’–an action movie filled with daring stunts throughout via motorcycles, helicopters, and an airplane halo jump–Tom Cruise took the playful bait of talk show host James Corden after he called out Mr. Cruise’s “action star credentials.”

Mr. Corden reciprocated in kind by accepting the thrill-ride challenge of Mr. Cruise (seriously) that will make for a breathtaking segment (literally) during a future show. In a word:

Incredible.

Just like Tom Cruise’s stunts in the ‘Mission: Impossible’ cinematic series, the halo jump is about to get crazy real beyond belief for James Corden.
