With the forums back online and glitch free that means that once again, Poll of the Week returns and with it yet another fun poll. Now despite a perfect poll appearing with the release of Star Trek: Into Darkness, in the form of what everyone thought of the movie I thought that I would do something a little different and instead focus on sounds (or more precisely music) that is often forgotten when we all talk about a movie. But in my experience without this music the movies we watch would hardly be worth watching in my opinion.
I am sure that we can all agree that there are many things that contribute to make a movie what it is. Story, visual effects, acting, musical accompaniment and directing just to list a few of the bigger ones they can turn a pretty average story into an instant classic that will stand the test of time or will make viewers just walk away after seeing (or hearing) some pretty horrible scenes on screen. From epic science fiction adventures to psychological thrillers and onto romantic comedies, even if the script is up to par and everything looks spectacular it is often what we hear that fully immerses us into the world that we are watching.
Whether understated or emphasized it’s these classical musical moments and/or themes that this week’s poll is all about. With that in mind the question is simple and probably not as elegant as the above introduction: which is your favorite? So dial up the volume on your speakers and have fun listening to some of these classics before you vote on the forums. I am sure that you might hear something new and exciting, or relieve the old favorites if you are already familiar with them.
Before I go I want to once again thank Wanda DyAmone of the USS Drake for this awesome poll idea. Remember that if you have any ideas that you would like to see in the weekly poll just leave a suggestion in the suggestions thread. Whether its something entirely new or an old classic, no idea is overlooked in the pursuit of bringing you exciting and engaging polls to have fun with.
Stay tuned everyone and have fun.
