It isn’t easy producing a good soundtrack. Music is an imperative part of the entertainment industry, which is why it’s so important to nail it, especially if your discography is going to be part of a big Hollywood movie.
But if you are skilled enough to successfully achieve good music, it really can make all the difference.
Often, audiences will go away from a movie and convince themselves it was worth the watch, when in actuality, it was the tunes which won them over and washed away the badness of the film. That’s just the impact a great soundtrack can have.
Other pictures don’t have such luck. It can go in the opposite direction where the film was so appalling, it was enough to make you overlook some pretty awesome music going on amidst an unwatchable viewing. In either case, it’s very frustrating how so much talent and potential goes to waste for an otherwise lazy piece of filmmaking.
