Also known as High School Rock, this American musical from 2009 was a very popular romantic comedy drama film. It was just the perfect combination of rock music, crazy outfits, loud electric guitars and eccentric behavior mixed with a bit of love and romance.
It revolved around the bond of two people who think alike and share their passionate love for rock music. In fact, it was the music that helped them to get together. Eventually, these two assemble a crew of like minded misfits and friends who form a rock group together only to perform in a battle of the bands competition, widely known as Bandslam.
Now, if you ever gave a thought about forming a band yourself, this movie could be a really great introduction as to what you have to keep in your mind before you do it. Having a band is not only about the music, you have to think about the other band members, the guitars, drums and other instruments and eventually, the merchandise that will help you spread the popularity of your newly formed band.
Bandslam was not popular only because of the rock music, fancy guitars and rock t-shirts but because of David Bowie’s final film appearance before his death in 2016. So, in a way, this movie was approved by a rock legend himself and that has to count for something.
Bandlsam was well received critically before and after it was released. Still, the movie did not do well commercially but, it managed to do one thing and that was to make hundreds and thousands of teenagers start a rock band. There were t-shirts with the movie cover all over the world, selling in no time and all around the globe kids were buying guitars, trying to start a rock band and be cool.
Maybe the movie was not largely accepted by the wider audience, it still managed to make an impact on the younger generations and enrich them with the spirit of rock. It became some kind of a trend to go to a party and instead of bringing some alcohol you rather bring a guitar or a rock t-shirt as a present. When you come to think about this, the movie did make a change after all and a good one too. It made kids think about rock culture and music and accept it eventually.
If there ever was a movie where music played such an important part that it could almost change the way you felt about a certain actor, his or her character as well as their roles, that would be most definitely Salem Falls. A man, with a dark secret he wants to put behind him, embarks on a journey to find a better life for himself.
The plot is very well thought of but, it was the splendid music that helped to emphasize it to the maximum of its potential. Now, to completely understand this, it is important to understand the role of music in the movie and what it does to the viewers. Music is supposed to help them to better feel and capture each moment and part of the story that actors want to tell you.
It is supposed to help them to get into the role and feel it on their own skins. If a music is really that good, people will manage to literally live those moments, which is really useful because they will be able to get a better picture of what the director really wanted to say. Sometimes, the storyline of the movie tends to be too slow or it lacks tension. To give it a bit of a boost, music comes into play and sets the motion in place.
With the right level of tension, music can be more powerful than the spoken words. Good cast, lots of twists, music intensity, these are all very important parts of a good movie. Well, Salem Falls has it all. The plot is well developed, the cast knows what to do and the music managed to capture all those magnificent moments in the most wonderful way.
Music can build up the tension
Music is what helps the actors to literally come alive. It is all about the emotion that people need to feel from that combination of spoken words, acting, and music. It is a great ballet of chemistry between the actors, the public, the music and the plot. When all four are in place and go well together, the machine seems to roll on its own and you get a good story that will etch itself upon your memory.
A movie is only good as you manage to memorize it. If it was interesting, you would remember almost the whole thing. Music can help a lot to capture those memorable moments, more than you know. The genre of the movie also can be crucial for the music making. Drama tends to be best for the task because of its emotion.
If the plot is charged with feelings, the music must be too. But not too soft, it is not good to let it spoil the mood. It should give the wanted atmosphere which you can feel in Salem Falls. It is a perfect example of a movie where music and the storyline were blended together with utmost excellence.
Since their sophomore album ”A head full of dreams” in 2015, Coldplay reached the record-breaking sales. Even though we have not heard from them since the last album, it seems that the four-piece took some time to sit down and surprise their fans with the new EP.
If you have been on about it, here are some good news for all of you. Coldplay confirmed that they will release a new EP in 2017, under the name Kaleidoscope. Even though it will be EP rather than LP, the fans will still be able to get a good taste of the new music and the band itself is confident that the new material will click with the old fan base, already established since the inception of this band.
Even though we could not get any copious details about the songs and the material as well as the recording process, we can feel it will be a good EP simply because Coldplay cannot disappoint. There are no details about song titles or any track listing but, we can rely on the fact that their last album released in December 2015 reached number one in the UK with sales going over 4 million copies until today.
Frontman Chris Martin did give us a hint about this EP saying that the band feels comfortable with being who they are at the moment and how this EP is the result of that feeling. They will try yet again to win everyone on this one and the fans really loved the idea of getting a brand new EP from the band.
Not a conventional Coldplay album
Probably what made this EP so special is the fact that is that is not their conventional Coldplay album. The fans will notice that and they will be able to make up their own minds about how they feel about this EP. The band feels like they are exactly where they should be at the moment and this EP is a monument to their previous efforts, a great summit that crowns all.
Unfortunately, there are some notions that this could be their very last effort. The frontman said how he feels that this EP is a closing of a long chapter in the life of this band and that could mean that the band is ready and prepared to say goodbye to the world and their fans.
