It's so great to be able to listen to the music in an epic movie! Michael Giacchino's score is romantic, evocative. It tells us about adventure, sadness, love....a journey to Barsoom, or Mars. The 2nd track "Get Carter" still gives me goosebumps. The 8th one makes me remember Dejah Thoris' words "You are John Carter of Earth!"
If you love movie soundtracks this is by far one of the BESTS of this year....we are still in April and it's too soon to be final. If you haven't seen the movie, you loved Julio Verne, you want to know where did James Cameron and George Lucas take their ideas from, why Carl Sagan had a Barsoom map in his office and a Barsoom drive plate.....come to Mars, come to Barsoom. Do it now! You won't regret it.
Favourite tracks? It's so difficult to chose
2. Get Carter: it captures the fighting spirit of the character
14. The prize is Barsoom....amazing
19. John Carter of Mars: it captures the essence of the movie
Take up a cause, fall in love, write a book.
Och, ohem, och tay wyess...Barsoom
I really want to go back
