Happy Monday!

If you can inject movie magic into your day, then it’s been a successful day. And if that magic is somehow related to composer Hans Zimmer and filmmaker Christopher Nolan, then your day will truly be memorable.

Case in point:

Kids say play the darndest things.

A Blade Runner Kind of Sounds Like a Snow Plow

The expression goes “when it rains, it pours.” Currently, in Columbus, Ohio, that expression can be amended to “when it snows, it’s your chore, there’s always more and where’s my shovel from Thor.”

Yeah, it’s snowing a lot here in the midwest. And the single-digit temperatures coupled with layers of ice sadly don’t encourage snow fights and building a snowman outside. So, with that in mind, maybe it’s best if we imagine the snow is actually rain for a moment. There’s an inherent tranquility in the rain. For even more imaginative fun, let’s coincide this soothing day-dreaming with today’s Blu-ray release of the visually stunning science-fiction sequel Blade Runner 2049. 

“Rain” + Blade Runner 2049 =

Rain in the future (according to Hans Zimmer) sounds nice.

Happy Monday

Winston Churchill’s resolute strength + Hans Zimmer’s emotional instrumental inspired by Christopher Nolan’s dramatic storytelling of Dunkirk =

Wise people say that history repeats itself. That’s certainly an eternal truth. However, what these wise people don’t specify is the manner in which this repeating occurs. Therefore, in whatever fashion this epic musical and oratorical collaboration inspire you, let it. And then do something positive to change yourself and the world around you in a profound manner.

Bravery and sacrifice never get old.

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

The first silver screen movie starring Wonder Woman is, yes, doing wonderfully with audiences and critics alike.

Actually, to be blunt, Wonder Woman is kicking some serious ass in movie theaters across the country world!

“With $100.5 million in North America and an additional $122.5 million internationally, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman can boast the biggest-ever opening weekend for a film directed by a woman, Variety reports.”

Gal Gadot (Diana Prince/Wonder Woman) was the scene stealer in 2016s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Ms. Gadot proved she could hang alongside Batman and Superman. Now, she is proving she can handle the big screen all by herself.

A super statement in more ways than one.

In Wonder Woman, Ms. Gadot shows off her skills and natural characteristics of a superhero capable of shining in the brightest cinematic spotlight and, more importantly, in the cultural spotlight for women and young girls. And to celebrate the historic opening weekend, let’s listen to the epic theme song for Wonder Woman written and produced by the brilliant musicial composer Hans Zimmer from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The specific title of the Wonder Woman theme above is, “Is She with You?”

No, she’s with all of us.
