It looks like I’m not going to get any free time to make the next video. Whoever wants it, below is the list: I am considering making a new video adding in the “Mask of Zorro”, “Star Trek II”, “King Kong” (1976), “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas”, “Seven Pounds”, “The Perfect Storm”, “Braveheart”,”The Land Before Time,” “Brainstorm,” “Sneakers,” and where it all originates from Wagner’s “Parsifal, Act II.” If I’ve missed one leave a comment telling me which ones to add. While watching Avatar, I noticed something very similar between the soundtrack of the film and other movies. Notably, I thought of Troy and Titanic. It turns out James Horner has garnered a reputation for himself for recycling music from his own scores. The main musical motif that caught my ear was this 4-note motif used in Avatar, Enemy At the Gates, Troy, and Willow. If you listen to soundtracks from movies that Horner has scored, you will hear bits and pieces that have been lifted and recycled all over again. James Horner seems to be the master of this. This is how modern movies are made and very few people notice the similarities. Be sure to watch all of this clip. The track list is at the end. I forgot to put the name of second track in the video. (The Destruction of Home Tree) Please ignore the YT ad, it only detects the song from Enemy At the Gates.
