The new Warner Brothers motion picture The Book Of Eli
has a lot of themes about life and stuff. I can talk about it because I saw it yesterday! But it also features a soundtrack by Atticus Ross, a famous producer known for his multi-platinum work with Nine Inch Nails
. And the soundtrack is totally what you'd expect; spooky, ominous, and unpredictable.
Ross co-wrote the album Ghosts
and it is EXTREMELY obvious in the movie. Fans of the 36-track epic will instantly recognize the Ross style, as my movie-going counterpart pointed out. Ross has also composed for other Hughes Brothers projects, including the USA Network series "Touching Evil" (TWSS), and the film New York, I Love You
The movie itself was gooooooood, but I think the part where Denzel blasts off in search of life in another galaxy was a little trite (just kidding). I did want a scene where Mila Kunis must come to terms with her poor acting skills, but that's OK too. I'll settle for a future dystopia where everyone is FORCED to wear sunglasses at all time.
Thank God they have Ray-Bans and skinny jeans in the post-apocalyptic world!
Anyway, I can summarize the movie in one sentence: I was very, very thirsty for water by the end. Go see it and you'll know what I mean.
The Book Of Eli
is in theaters 1/12. Check out a preview of the album below.-joe puglisi
