I’m told there’s a football game on today so this seems like an appropriate choice for these week’s Watercooler Musical Interlude. It is of course from John Williams’ score to John Frankenheimer’s 1977 Superbowl terrorist flick Black Sunday. The Goodyear blimp flew over my house low one night when I was a little kid with all the patterned lights on the side flashing like something out of Close Encounters of the Third Kind (except before Close Encounters came out) so of course I had a longstanding childhood fascination with the blimp and the commercial for Black Sunday was like catnip.
Well, the Oscars are pretty much over with a wet fizzle even before they’ve started and it’s still pretty much Movie Winter unless you were at Sundance. Did anyone get out there and do anything worth talking about anyway? You know the drill. Lay it on me.
