Andrew Drummond Visual Audio The movie I picked to talk about its score is Blade 2. I really enjoyed the score of this film because as a action film it needed upbeat music and that is exactly what it had. Whenever there was any action happening there was music in the background even if it was faint. The opening scene of the film uses this batman meets techno music that worked so well because the open scene has a new type of vampire and so the eerie batman music works cause you don’t really know anything about this vampire. Then when he attacks the music kicks up into this techno sound but still remain eerie. The music that plays when blade is around is almost shaft like. He walks around with so much confidence so the music shows that like it did in shaft.

There is real music used in this film as well but it works because the film is about vampires and they drink blood and feed on each other and listen to upbeat techno music. The songs that were used in the film that were real music talked about feeding, thirst and blood. So they fit in well with the film. Also they were techno songs so they didnt stand out with the music that was composed for the film. The real songs were also only used briefly. The score on a whole worked very well for this film and I believe made it a lot better than it would have been otherwise....
