Dare to be stupid

When it comes to music in movies, they always try to find songs that either fit into the situation at hand, or at least use an original score, all in favour of enhancing our experience.

Take Transformers The Movie for example. In the scene where the Decepticons are attacking Autobot City and nearly defeats the Autobots, Optimus Prime arrives and gives us one of the greatest quotes of 1980s cinema
(“Megatron must be stopped, no matter the cost.”), you hear the song The Touch by Stan Bush fading in, pushing the scene to God-like levels of greatness!

In the same movie, when some of the Autobots are stranded and attacked by the Junkions, Weird Al Yankovic tributes us with one of the most random uses of a song ever, Dare To Be Stupid. This song stands alone as a chomical relief to the movie instead of enhancing our experience like The Touch.

The two songs are so widely different from one another but they both serve a purpose and they both do their jobs extremely well. At least that’s what I think. You disagree, do you? Discuss it in the comment-section then.

Until next time… Peace out hombrĂ©s!


About hanktango

This is not a serious movie review-blog. I do not review movies in a fashion that certified critics would. I think about stuff when I watch movies, and then write about those thoughts I had during the movie. I sometimes also think about other stuff related to movies, like castings, sequels and a whole bunch of other stuff. Sometimes, I even think about video games and then write about that. The only thing that's really specific to my writing, is that I write to you in the same way I would talk to you about all this stuff. So please, enjoy my writings, and if you were to get offended by anything, I would suggest you unravel that bunched up pantyhose you have stuck up your butt and stop being so sensitive, because honestly... that's Your problem, not anyone elses. Thank you! View all posts by hanktango
