I remember when I first saw the preview to this movie when I was seeing Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. The moment after the trailer ended I knew I had to see it. I thought this movie was going to be crazy. I thought it was going to be action packed. Boy was I wrong. This movie moved me in such a way that I cannot describe in words. I was scared a couple of days after I saw the movie. It was also way different then I expected. It was emotional and it had mentally frightened me. I expected it to be like most other horror movies that are made nowadays. Guts and a crappy story with a sex scene thrown in for no reason. I had not expected to feel those feelings. It was the first time I had been genuinly scared in a movie theater by a movie. The first time you see the infected is the scariest scene I have seen in a movie to date. But it also was the first time in a movie I almost cried. And it is amazing to think that I was scared and almost cried in the same movie. Basically when Sam dies (sorry for those of you that haven't seen the movie). I love dogs, and to think that Robert Neville lost his only memory of a civilized society once Sam died, he lost his family too. Sam was the last remaining fragment of his family. You have to feel so bad for him, the maddness that must have drove him into, espcially in the "Talk to Me" scene. I had not expected the soundtrack to be amazing, average at best. But boy was I wrong again. This soundtrack is simply stunning. "Sam's Gone" is the most emotionally moving movie music I have heard, next to "The Execution" by James Horner in Braveheart. I recommend buying the entire soundtrack, that is what I did. It is stunning! Great movie, great music, great acting! Kudos to the people that put this movie together, too bad the stupid Academy didn't acknowledge it with any awards though. It should have gotten best acting (by Will Smith obviously). Thank you Apple for putting this on iTunes.
Outstanding and worthy of an AWARD!!
Watching this film sent me through a rush of emotions that I hadn't expected, and it surprised me even more when the soundtrack did the same thing. It is unusual for any film to stay in my head longer than the time it takes to leave the theatre and get to my car. However, this film made some sort of impact on me and parts of it haunt me to this day, especially when I listen to this album. Track 6, "Sam's Gone" is one that allows me to clearly recall the exact scene of the film for which it represents. The scene did not have too much memorable dialogue, but the music provided the perfect background to compliment the raw emotions being portrayed on screen, and in my seat!! Track 5, "Darkseeker Dogs" does a good job of this as well. It's somewhat magical to be able to listen to a soundtrack and recall specific portions of that particular film. Well done, and I hope the film and soundtrack earn some awards! (If the writer's strike ever ends, that is!)
like a knife through the heart
sometimes soundtracks and scores really make you feel what the actor was trying to portray, will smiths performance was heart wrenching and emotional display of true despair, the loss of sam on screen was beautifully done by the director and howard also has shown this perfectly, during the piece "sam's gone"...
