Random Factoid #37

The most played song on iTunes on my computer is “Postcards,” the theme from “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” composed by Alexandre Desplat.  I love movie soundtracks (and I will elaborate on this love later), but this is probably my most played song due to an obsession lasting a few months with the movie and the fact that the song is perfect to listen while doing homework.  I don’t know any sort of musical terms to describe it, so I will spare you a misguided discussion of the song.  But give it a listen.

What to Look Forward To: “Inception”

25 08 2009

I won’t normally do this, but I just have to now.  At the moment, “Inception” is my most anticipated movie of 2010.  It is Christopher Nolan’s first movie since he lit the world on fire with “The Dark Knight,” which he directed and wrote.  He has gathered a superb cast for the project, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ellen Page, and Michael Caine. He has kept the plot of his latest outing shrouded in secrecy … until today, when a very detailed plot summary was released.  I beg you, PLEASE DO NOT LET ME READ THEM!  And if you tell me, I will unleash my wrath on you.  I cannot accurately put into words my euphoria for the release of this movie.  I do not want it to be tainted by knowing the intricacies of the plot before I step into the movie theater!  Yes, I am using exclamation points because I really do feel that strongly!  Watch the teaser trailer that played before “Inglourious Basterds” below … the best since “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” It sets up the movie perfectly and without giving away anything about the plot.
