Movie Monday - X-Men: Apocalypse

Welcome to Movie Monday. On a Monday I pick a movie from the ones I've watched in the last week, and highlight what I think is the film's memorable moment.

This week - X-Men: Apocalypse





 "I've never felt power like this before."







Memorable Moment - For those who have yet to see this latest X-Men film, I won't reveal exactly what happens in the scene I've picked as my memorable moment. But I will say this - it involves Apocalypse, Charles Xavier...and Cerebro. Something I can focus on without spoilers is the fact that this powerful scene is accompanied by the allegretto from Beethoven's Symphony No.7. And in my opinion it is this piece of music that absolutely makes this scene, bringing a fairly standard hero-meets-villain moment to a whole other level. As the music thundered in my ears, I could feel Apocalypse's power; it was almost as if I myself was Charles, plugged in to Cerebro, connecting to the energy of the world's first mutant.

That's the magic of music - it has the ability to awaken all kinds of emotions in us. Choosing the perfect song for a movie scene can elevate that scene from run-of-the-mill, seen-it-before, to blow-my-mind extraordinary. A well-placed piece of music can make a film better, and it can bring a certain track to the attention of a new generation of listeners. That's especially true when classical music such as Beethoven's is used. Here's an example - when I searched for Symphony No.7 on You Tube the comments were full of people who had purposely gone there to find it after watching X-Men: Apocalypse. One brief moment of music in a single movie scene brought people together, gave them a common interest and a way to connect to one another. That's the power of music.
