So, I’m watching
The Magnificent Seven
(original version, thank you, very much)
I hear the soundtrack.
The soundtrack is vibrant, strong, beautiful.
The soundtrack is westerny, tough, and jagged.
The music was nominated for an Academy award.
It’s a fabulous score.
It’s a wonderful movie.
So, as I’m watching and listening I notice a certain part of the score sounds EXACTLY like something I’ve heard in LoTR: The Two Towers.
Listen to each one.
