Disney’s latest sequel brings back those lovable digital misfits for an all-new adventure that takes Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) on an all-new adventure across the digital space. Their search for a valuable replacement part to help fix Vanellope’s game Sugar Rush takes the two to the Internet, where they run to all sorts of new characters like the tough street racing queen Shank (Gal Gadot) and trend-setting algorithm Yesss (Taraji P. Henson).

If you’re a fan of movies, chances are you’re a fan of movie scores. But while the music of a film can elicit emotions and enhance our experience viewing it and overall appreciation of it, sometimes there’s so much more going on in those compositions than most of us ever realize.

With an example of this, YouTube user The Nerdwriter has released a new video exploring composer Howard Shore‘s work on Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and how his music actually elevated the already stellar story it told.

The Ninth and Latest ‘Hobbit’ Production Video Features A Lot Of Tired Technicians

Having a huge event film in its post-production stage up until only a few days from its world premiere is not exactly unheard of in the motion picture industry, especially when it involves the completion of crucial visual effects and music. Such is the case with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which is still being worked on as its theatrical opening looms largely with less than three weeks to go before it bows on 2D and 3D movie screens across the U.S.

To give us a modest taste of the massive amounts of work that go into making The Hobbit look and sound as epic and unforgettable as it needs to be director Peter Jackson is here with the ninth in a series of video production diaries.

Howard Shore’s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Score Streaming For Free

In one month’s time audiences around the world will be taking a return trip to J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Middle-Earth via the comfort of a plush theater seat for the first time in nearly a decade when The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the opening chapter of Peter Jackson‘s eagerly-anticipated three-part adaptation of the 1937 classic fantasy-adventure Tolkien tome that would serve as the prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy, hits cinema screens from Oregon to Oslo. To bring this heroic endeavor to life on the big screen Jackson recruited nearly every integral member of the cast and crew that together made the LoTR trilogy the epic achievement in genre filmmaking it almost wasn’t, most prominently composer Howard Shore, who won Academy Awards for his vibrant and awe-inspiring orchestral scores to The Fellowship of the Ring and The Return of the King.

Fans of Jackson and Shore’s previous collaborations were wondering how their latest musical jaunt through the land of wizards and monsters would sound, and most importantly how much of Shore’s compositions for the Lord of the Rings movies would be utilized for the Hobbit trilogy. They can rest easy because the score for An Unexpected Journey, which won’t be available for sale until the Tuesday prior to the movie’s opening, is now streaming for free in full online.

Greetings my fair vamps, vamp lovers, and fang bangers, tis I, CrueChik, back with some Twilight Saga news.

After a little post-New Moon hibernation (really though, there was no actual hibernation, I’m never very far from all things Twilight, seeing as I watch the first film once a week”¦yeah, I admit it, don’t judge me), I have returned with a tasty morsel of information about the next installment in the saga, Eclipse, scheduled for release June 30, 2010.

Award-winning composer Howard Shore will be writing the score for the much anticipated continuation of vampire bait Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) and his immortal hotness Edward Cullen’s (Rob Pattinson) epic love story.
