Happy Monday

The Last Jedi trailer is here…

I think a few people will see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in movie theaters this Christmas. The film’s director and screenwriter Rian Johnson continues to show that he’s the real deal within the beloved fictional cinematic world of Star Wars.

Is it Christmas yet?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

1982 Called…and Sounded Impressed

After 35 years, Blade Runner 2049 is now in theaters across the country. The long-awaited sequel to the quintessential science-fiction film has finally arrived.

As I give you time to order tickets in the event you haven’t bought yours for the movie event of October, be sure to enjoy a visually stunning reminder as to why Blade Runner 2049 is primed to be the rare example of a sequel that will match its beloved 1980s nostalgic forefather.

Or, as has been written on Jimmy’s Daily Planet, surpass its cinematic game-changing and iconic original.

No pressure.

Harrison Ford’s Name Game Is in Reverse

The mysterious ways our minds can play tricks is amusing. But when it happens to us, well…

Hold on a second, I seem to have lost my train of thought.

Oh! Now I remember. Or do I?

Blade Runner 2049 arrives in theaters across the country next Friday, October 6th.

That’s something we all know for certain.

An Eternal Rey of Light

YouTube is nothing but goofy videos, like cats that open doors, dogs that rap and a gerbil with a lightsaber.

That presumption is only partly correct (But c’mon…a gerbil with a lightsaber!).

Despite the preconveived notions about YouTube’s content, the videos that can be discovered while exploring the popular website are actually infinitely diverse. There are ridiculously silly and absurd videos, yes, but there are also amazing feats captured for millions (even billions) to see for an eye-opening surprise.

John Williams is a movie soundtrack legend. Mr. Williams has written and composed some of the most iconic scores in movie and cultural history.

  • Jaws (1975)
  • Star Wars (Beginning in 1977-Present)
  • Superman (1978)
  • Indiana Jones (Beginning in 1981-Present)
  • E.T. (1982)
  • Home Alone (1990)
  • Hook (1991)
  • Jurassic Park (1993)

In addition, what’s equally noteworthy of the past legacy of John Williams is the future legacy of John Williams. Returning to compose The Force Awakens (Star Wars: Episode VII) in 2015, one of the best instrumentals on the soundtrack is “Rey’s Theme.” And it sounds like YouTube user Chelsea Comeau is quite the good student in the John Williams school of brilliant character themes, with just a piano.

Now compare to the genius John Williams version, complete with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at his disposal. And, of course, let’s not forget that John Williams came up with this beautiful instrumental from his imagination.

Amazing.

It’s pretty great what you can find on YouTube, isn’t it?

Or what you can be inspired by on YouTube…

P.S. You’re welcome.
