“Hope. It is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective. A lot of hope is dangerous. A spark is fine, as long as it’s contained.” President Snow sneered.
This movie soundtrack really struck a cord with me. I found it hauntingly good, I was really impressed with how James Newton Howard captured the essence of the movie in his simple elegant score, keeping it cool and calm, having its adventurous moments, but generally staying quiet. You cannot listen to the score in a moving vehicle. This is a score that must be enjoyed reading a book or just being calm. You won’t enjoy what it gives you.
When I found out that the Hunger Games was being made into a movie, I was actually kind of surprised, I didn’t know the author and I wasn’t sure how the book could be taken into movies. Well I was surprised, and awed by the adaption to the silver screen.
This score can be found on Amazon.
I won’t give everything away, I will eventually get to reviewing the score in full. I will however leave you with one clip to provide you a taste into the score.
That’s it for today, hope you liked it. See you Sunday for Short Circuit. Happy Listening!
