QI’RA: Chapter Forty-Three

Qi’ra vs. Nienye

Qi’ra never imagined that when she discovered Nienye on Tamoran over a year ago, admiring his skills as he fought ten opponents to stay alive, that she was looking at her greatest opponent. And greatest he was.

Nienye was a skilled spearsman and his weapon’s length was keeping her at bay. Every time she tried to move past his defenses he performed a maneuver with his spear that forced her to back away.

The Musical Score for ‘Tenet’ Should Be Nominated for An Oscar

TENET is a strange masterpiece that takes a lot of brain power and concentration to understand but the one thing that blares into one’s senses and announces itself from the very get-go is the music.

Sticking to Hans Zimmer’s distinct and broody musical theme, Ludwig Göransson brought a flavor to this film that felt unlike anything I’ve heard before. Filled with synthesized beats that vibrated your senses in IMAX and a vague Western-sounding theme for The Protagonist, this movie never lets up. Just listen to this piece here for the very beginning of the film and you’ll understand why this score deserves an Oscar nomination.

It sticks into the soul, becoming as much a piece of the movie as the characters and plot. And like the film, it never lets up. It doesn’t apologize for its occasional assault on your neurons or its constant presence. It is a powerful piece of music that feels so perfect with this film and yeah, I love it!

I’ve already saved a few pieces on my Spotify because I love it that much.

If you’ve seen TENET do you think it should be nominated for an Oscar? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
