movies in need of an album sync-up?


Recommended Posts

what movies are most in need of an ideeem album synchronicity pairing, as in Dark Side of the Moon/The Wizard of Oz?

 

i did a jazz search before this and 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris were mentioned in one thread, but i'm curious what else y'all had in mind. i've never seen Primer, but that movie has come up a few times IIRC. other ideas, folks?

Need to be more specific with this. Which album with which film?

 

For Human Centipede I would nominate one of the ridiculously over the top 'dark' early 'Snares LPs, Doll Doll Doll perhaps?

 

Also, 'Songs About My Cats' for the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Maybe begin the album when they first set foot in the factory.

 

Trying to think of an Autechre-worthy film.....Draft 7.30 may work with A Scanner Darkly...

Listened to Music Has the Right to Children last night with Koyaanisqatsi on mute.

 

Really great pair up. Allows you to see the movie in a different life. One problem is the transitions don't necessarily match up with the music as well as the original score does

It seems like blasphemy to sync koyaanisqatsi to some other album. that entire film is entirely based on how the images match the already amazing soundtrack,,, why bother trying to be a pretentious dick about it.

I once synced (sunk?) ET: The Extra-Terrestrial with FSOL's Lifeforms. Granted, I was pretty stoned.. but it seemed to go pretty well for at least the length of the first disc.

Funny this thread should come up... Me and my roomate have recently found a way to perfectly sync the LotR: Fellowship of the Ring soundtrack with Titanic... Put the movie on mute and it makes it darker and somewhat operatic and SUPER epic... there's a certain track you have to go to to once the movie stops doing the pseudo-documentary thing at the begining, it syncs down to little subtle details even (cymbal crashes in the score at thrown punches and perfect transition timings). I mean like the scores to the movie could have been switched. I'll have to talk to him to remember exactly which track into the soundtrack you have to start on, but seriously it works amazingly well.

I totally agree but in my defence I was at least as drunk as you tend to be.

dune + some dark droney ambient would probably be a good match.

stellet licht + sigur ros, probably.

spun + vsnares

my neighbor totoro + Nobukazu Takemura

 

haven't tried any of these.

      Since the old thread got too long and took ages to load, we continue forth (think of it as a sequel, to use a movie metaphor).

      So by now some of you guys may know about my obsession with the David Fincher film "The Game" which I went as far as to create multiple tribute albums/alternative soundtracks to (as well as a comprehensive online and IRL scavenger hunt based on the film).
       
      Anyway, I thought instead of creating a thread on the film- which I may do as well- that I'd draw focus to the screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris--which not much is known or published about them outside of just their list of credits, at least that I could find. This screenwriting duo who penned the film's story, have a vast resume of films - and they all share a similar thread: very paranoid, conspiratorial thrillers that are usually psychological, often creepy, and typically very mind bending and puzzling. I also think they deserve an IDM award for the types of movies they write. Naturally, the 1997 pair up of Brancato and Ferris with Fincher for The Game was just a dead on perfect move. And adding Michael Douglas as character Van Orton just put the icing on the cake.
       
      Here is a list of their films:
       
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Brancato_and_Michael_Ferris
       
      What I've been finding most fascinating lately is the detailed connection I discovered between several of their films- namely The Game and Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines...
       
      No true spoilers here or anything (soft spoilers at best)..
       
      In The Game, fraudulent corporation Consumer Recreation Services are a massive part of the film's focus and the company behind the "game" that Michael Douglas plays. They are referred to in various parts to the film (partial spoiler alert) as CRS - but using different words for the same acronym all under the guise of different offshoots of the same company (Cable Repair Specialists, California Regal Sedans, etc).
       
      In Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, (and for the first time in the series), its revealed that Skynet project's parent company (who built the Terminators themselves) is called Cyber Research Systems which uses the same acronym CRS. There's even a wiki on it: http://terminator.wikia.com/wiki/Cyber_Research_Systems
       
      I can't help but think there may be a connection--at the very least a simple nod to the evil corporation theme of Brancato and Ferris' previous films... but possibly even more deep and complex of a link (which would be amazing). I've scourged Google for any published mention of this connection, and found 1 mere sighting where another person mentioned something, but was very surface and wasn't really intentional linking. Either way, it seems hard to imagine these were coincidental, and now I'm on a quest to watch every Brancato/Ferris film to see if there are other threads running through their various screenplays. So far, I've seen The Game, The Net, Catwoman, Terminator 3, Flight of Black Angel, and an episode of The Others.

      Anyone else familiar with their work, or keen on any of this?
       

       
      p.s. Fun side note- and [spoiler ALERT for both The Net and The Game] In their 95 screenplay for The Net, an evil corporation is also featured- called The Praetorians- computer hackers bent on stealing people's identity and using anti-virus software to actually infect computers with viruses to create mayhem and steal information-- almost identical to the goal of CRS in The Game. (Also, found it pretty cool that the software company Sandra Bullock works for is called Cathedral Software ... ahem... CathedRal Software. I know I know, that's a stretch).
       
      p.p.s. this thread is literally the first time I've seen any mention of these screenwriters on the web that i could find (outside of databases, wikipedia's, credits on product pages etc). I know screenwriters are often behind the scenes, but damn, it's crazy to me how obscure these guys seem to be as far as information, etc. I did find their production company website, but it's outdated and seems to be more of just a framework. I was excited to hear their narration on the directors commentary feature of The Game's Criterion Collection edition though. :)

      Josh Cooley has a book coming out featuring famous scenes from R-rated movies in the style of children's books. Really cool stuff!

      Can anyone recommend me movies in the vein of Drive (2011), Maniac (2012), that sort of stuff? I love this kind of dark, rainy, inner city setting. I even started playing Max Payne 2 again because of this.
       
      If I'm not mistaken, a lot of this stuff stems from the 50s, but I'm not sure if I'll enjoy, so I'm guessing 70s and up would be best.
       
      Thanks a lot!
       
      PS. You can recommend games too if you like, Gemini Rue is a great noir adventure / puzzle game
