There are certain themes that you can find sprinkled in movies of varying genres. Some horror films center around a family dynamic, some fantasy films are based around a heist, and some sports films are all about redemption. You can interchange motifs between genres and come up with all kinds of different movies. Like life, no matter how different things are, there is always something we can find relatable.
When it comes to films, the score has so much to do with the feelings and emotions we experience when we’re watching our favorites. The choice of music can take a scene from good to classic in an instant. Take Reservoir Dogs for example. What would the scene where Mr. Blonde cuts off the cop’s ear with the straight razor have been without “Stuck in the Middle with You”? As brutal as the episode is, it’s even darker with such a pleasant song playing.
Then we have moments that stand out in a film. There are some that no matter how many times they’re used in different movies, they’re always outstanding. One reason why is that, like themes, they speak to us because we can put ourselves in those moments. Dancing is one such example. You’d be hard-pressed to find many people who don’t enjoy dancing, even if they aren’t great at it. The feeling it gives us is complete euphoria, and when we see these scenes on film we are instantly transported back to that feeling, and for the moment, nothing else matters.
