Film Music Friday - June 24, 2022 (Epic Films)

The dictionary defines "epic" as something that's heroic, majestic, impressively great.  In Hollywood an epic is a movie that's big - really big.  And a big movie needs big music.  This week's Film Music Friday examines the music of epic films, with examples from Ben-Hur, King Kong, The Sea Hawk, The Man Who Would Be King and The Avengers, among others.

Film Music Friday - June 17, 2022 (Science Fiction)

On this week's Film Music Friday we're hearing the Golden Age of the Science Fiction. Our fascination with the future has made science fiction a staple of the cinema since silent movies. From space invaders and forbidden planets to time travel, sentient robots and atomic mutations run amok, almost anything is possible in the science fiction film. We'll hear music from Metropolis, Things to Come, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Destination Moon and more!
