Jack The Giant Slayer Movie Suite

Jack the Giant Slayer Suite
Music by John Ottman

In this 2013 remake of a classic Mr. Ottman has taken on the composer's baton to bring us a vision of mayhem and music that works quite well. Although much of the music to this work of fantasy was simply mood, it was still possible to work this into a cohesive composition that entertains the listener from start to finish. With a grand orchestra, a smattering of choral voices to add depth as well as the tried and true synthesizer for good measure, we end up with a timing for 24:05. There are still orchestral movie suites out there and I will continue to locate them for you. I hope you enjoy!  -MJ

Game Of Thrones Season Three Suite

Game of Thrones Season Three Suite
Music by Ramin Djawadi

In the third installment for this 2013 mini-series, Mr. Djawadi has become introspective as he weaves his haunting notes of betrayal and dispair. So much of this music was simply mood, yet we were able to carve out a semblance of a movie suite that still invokes plenty of emotion. With a timing of 20:31 we are left with a short yet concise feeling of longing emptiness; which was nothing like the previous G.O.T. suites brought to us. Still, I hope you enjoy this and share my hope that next season will bring us amazing themes as well as new reasons to listen.  -MJ
