Howard Shore is a well known Canadian composer who I am going to put up this weekend. He has written the scores to over 80 films, but he is best known for the music he did for the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  47 more words

Lemme gush for a minute about the Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack

I have inordinately strong feelings about The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. It’s the first movie soundtrack I was ever exposed to (the movie came out when I was only a few years old, so I heard the score before I ever saw the movie). 473 more words

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies—"Ironfoot"—Howard Shore

I’m a fan of anything Middle-earth, both in book and film. J.R.R. Tolkien’s rich world offers so much imaginative material for adaptation into art, film, and—of course—music. 112 more words

How To Train Your Dragon—"This Is Berk"—John Powell

John Powell’s scores for the two How To Train Your Dragon films are utterly superb, and the opening track “This Is Berk” is some of his finest work. 123 more words

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug—"Beyond the Forest"—Howard Shore

I love all of Howard Shore’s thematically rich Middle-earth soundtracks, but this credits suite for The Desolation of Smaug tops all. At times beautiful, soaring, mysterious, and heroic, this track combines a variety of themes relating to Tauriel, the bold and kindhearted woodland she-elf. 73 more words
