mockingjay-part-1

“Miss Everdeen, it is the things we love most that destroy us,” said President Snow.

This movie had a slow build up to the events that lead to this year’s Mockingjay Part 2. For all purposes, if you have not read the books. Read them. Suzanne Collins wrote the trilogy and there is a lot more information found in the books rather than the movies. Well besides Mockingjay, which they should have two parted all the other ones as well. The soundtrack for this film is really well done, James Newton Howard takes the trilogy by storm and forms a complete story for us in music.

  Yes there is the singing album you can also buy, but I highly recommend the instrumental score, you will want to listen to it in a quiet room with headphones. You can immerse yourself in the music and it takes you away on a journey. I’m not going to go into a ton of details here for this is one of my midweek soundtrack post.

I enjoyed the music and I’ll share just two peices of music from the score.

 

District 12

 

Victory

 

Well that’s all for today. Look forward to my post on Sunday: The Chipmunk Adventure. Happy Listening!
