On 14 January 2015
Have you ever imagined how would be a movie without music? It's not the same, is it? Because we reflected on this, we decided to present you a top of the best movie soundtracks of 2014, in appreciation to all the great artists that significantly improved our experience in the theatres or at home.
5. Tyler Bates – "Guardians of the Galaxy"
There's not much to say, Tyler Bates brought to life the characters and the story with this amazing soundtrack. It fits in perfectly and completes the movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a sci-fi action and a funny movie, an interesting mix. A bunch of weird unknown, who call themselves "Guardians of the Galaxy" have to fight for protecting the universe from a fanatic warrior.
4. Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross – "Gone Girl"
Trent Reznor is no stranger to darkness. He teamed up with Gone Girl director, David Finch, on two previous movies: The Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The soundtrack is agressive and agitated, highlighting the action and the character's feelings.
Nick Dune (Ben Affleck) is suspected for his wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), disappearance. A media frenzy is growing, so Nick starts to lie and act strange, raising a question: Did he kill his wife?
3. James Newton Howard – "Nightcrawler"
Any good movie needs a master composer and James Newton Howard is one. He did an amazing, unforgettable, modern and urban soundtrack for Nightcrawler. The songs are different, illustrating the terrifying story.
Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllehaal) is a driven man desperate for work. When he goes in LA, Bloom becomes a freelancing videographer and takes videos of true crimes as they are happening to be broadcast on the news. It's only a short time until his dark work transforms him in a colder man, stopping at nothing to succeed.
2. Hans Zimmer – "Interstellar"
With Zimmer's brilliant soundtrack is easy to get caught up in Christopher Nolan' movie. Interstellar is an entertaining and awesome movie, but its impressive soundtrack brings all the feelings to a personal level.
Interstellar presents the story of a team of explorers who travel through a wormhole in an attempt to ensure humainity's survival. It has many powerful moments, conveying deep emotions. We all remember "We must not think as individuals, but as a species" quote and the complete movie left us with a lot of question.
1. Johann Johansson – "The Theory of Everything"
The soundtrack is very dramatic and emotional, inspiring different feelings. We think it's the best movie soundtrack of 2014, and we enjoyed every single piece of it. Just imagine a diary with a soundtrack that resembles very well with the story.
Theory of Everything is a British biographical drama film that describes the relation between the famous physicist Stehpen Hawking and his wife. The two met when were students at Cambridge in the 60's. That was the period when the great scientist started his struggle with motor neuron disease (ASL), that made him lose the ability to walk and stay for the rest of his life in a weehlchair. Together, Hawking and his wife, break new ground on the medicine and science.
