Entertainment Time-Out: Star Wars 7 Music

...the most crucial component of the movie’s design is undoubtedly John Williams’ still-enveloping score, from that thrilling, trumpet-like first blast over the opening text scroll, to the majestic flurries of feeling the music generates as it accompanies the characters on their long and difficult journeys.

This is the first time your Musical Patriot has ever seen a review of a movie which said the "crucial component of [a] movie's design is undoubtedly" the movie's music.  What a refreshing statement!  While I love being a patriot, I am still very much a musical patriot.  Music has such power and such beauty.  The days' news has plenty of "power" of a certain kind.  But beauty, not so much.  It is very important, even critical, to remember the beauty of the world.  It is a fine thing to see Variety recognizing the key role of music in a major film of our time.
