The power and beauty of music is universal. It has the ability to make the images on the big-screen come alive for us in all their vivid glory. Transporting us to other worlds and to the root of the emotion being created, a good film score or song can solidify its place in our hearts and minds forever.

Two big composer announcements were made today for two upcoming films. The first announcement, which personally fills my own heart with delight, stated that musical geniuses Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are set to compose David Fincher's "Gone Girl". The film stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike and is based on Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel.

The musical duo scored Fincher's "The Social Network", which still remains one of the most celebrated soundtracks in many years. Fincher's brilliantly unique and bold style matched with the duos impeccable ability to evoke emotion through music, has proven to be one of my favorite collaborations in film.

Danny Elfman is the second big-time composer locked for the next film, "50 Shades of Grey". Also based on the popular book series often coined as "mommy porn", Sam Taylor-Johnson is helming the steamy adaptation. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star in the film and locking Elfman for a controversial picture like this is certainly a smart move.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
