Exploring Star Wars In The Depths Of Spotify

Is Spotify Your Holocron For Soundtracks? If you’re a fan of Star Wars then it’s almost a certainty that you are also a fan of the soundtracks. If you look up perfection in the dictionary it mentions John Williams and the music to the Star Wars movies. Okay that was a lie but it should do. For me, ever since that first viewing of Star Wars way back in 1977 I’ve craved the musical delights of John Williams and the scores to Star Wars have never been that far away in my life. From the humble beginnings of listening to Star Wars on a record player to cramming a whole album on a 256mb Creative Labs Muvo MP3 player. Now, we are lucky enough to have any music we like just a click away and streamed to any device at any time. I'm a huge fan of Spotify and when it comes to soundtracks it's always a delight to find the hidden gems filed away in the music streaming service. If you’re a soundtrack fan like me then a music streaming service is a must but I do recommend caution

WILLOW - Making Of An Adventure

This 1988 Making Of Doc Is Full Of Retro Charm, Just Like The Movie "In a time of sequels and spin-offs, where many cinemas have numbers after their titles, Willow is one of a kind."  That's how this making of featurette opens from 1988.  Kind of fits today's cinema trend doesn't it?  What they were talking about was Lucasfilm's latest offering, Willow. This is a charming featurette that oozes so much enthusiasm.  George Lucas, Ron Howard and Warwick Davis are so excited for the movie.  The doc has an infectious excitement about it that seemed to be the norm for this style of programme from this era.  It really does pack a punch.  They visit ILM to show how the state of the art special effects were made, the many sets and of course interview the cast to get their take on the story, all mixed with a dramatic soundtrack and gritty narrator (Don LaFontaine.) The movie, unfortunately didn't take the box-office by storm but it's one of those movies

10 Soundtracks You Should Listen To During Rush Hour

Late For Work Or Being Chased Because You've Stolen The Declaration Of Independence?  These Soundtracks Are Perfect To Listen To As You Zip Through The Traffic From the world of movies and TV here are ten pieces of soundtrack music I think you should listen to during rush hour. So if you're in your car driving to work or walking through crowds of people block after block then the following music will fit the setting and help you beat the traffic. Just don't speed. The Chase, Hans Zimmer - The Rock Using his signature drum and base beat the track starts slow but builds into a frantic fast moving track that would be ideal moving between traffic. Just don't chase any Hummers through the streets of San Francisco. Rush Hour, Mark Macina - Speed Couldn't have a rush hour playlist without at least one from the movie Speed and its called Rush Hour. Like The Chase this uses a fast tempo and builds tension and brings a sense of urgency. Perfect if you are late for

10 Star Wars Characters You Are Unlikely To See In The Rise of Skywalker

10 Characters You are unlikely to see in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is not that far away now and I thought it would be good fun to speculate who will NOT be in the movie.  With just a hint of sarcasm I give you ten Star Wars characters you are unlikely to see in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.  You never know though... Jira 10 - Jira (Storms coming Annie, you better get home quick.)
