It says something about how I experience (I can’t strictly say watch) movies that I pay a lot of attention to theme music.

Case in point: Finally went to The Force Awakens this weekend. One of the things I did was listen closely to the themes associated with the characters, especially Rey’s. As you’ll recall from those benighted prequels, Anakin’s theme bears significant resemblance to Vader’s/the Imperial March that we know later. I know fairly well that what theme a major character is given says a lot about that character, enough that with shows like this I pay almost as much attention to that as I do to what’s shown on screen.

So then...who else out there is a theme music wonk?
