Beyond this door lies a wonderful world…

Images convey themes. They can stir up the deepest and most fundamental emotions and sentiments of the human race; joy, grief, anxiety, relief, frustration, admiration, guilt, vindication. Moving images form the basis of all films and comprise one of the two elements of modern film. That is to say, modern film relies upon images and sounds to create meaning. Now this hardly seems like an astonishing revelation; however, most viewers ignore or do not realize the full implications of this trivial concept. Here I aim to introduce readers to new movies, provide them clear reviews of these movies and most importantly, comment on the music and/or soundtrack in these films and the music’s role in the movie. By doing so, I hope readers will watch the movies which feature some of their new favorite songs or vice versa (listen to the music of some of their new favorite movies). In addition, I will try to look at other film mediums (such as music videos, journalism) and define the significance of music in these realms as well as introduce readers to new music. I often hear music and say, “Wow I could definitely see this in a movie scene.” I want to try and tie together movies and music as much as possible because they share a very deep and powerful connection, which I believe can reveal a lot of about an individual’s personality. So as much as this is a portrait of myself, this blog serves primarily to help people find great movies and music. So without further ado, welcome to the wonderful world of movies and music.
