Exploring the art of storytelling.

Fastest and Sweetest Man Alive


I love the soundtracks for superhero films.  The music is always powerful with big horn and percussion  sections and fast string sections.  I’m already falling in love with the score for “The Flash,” and I’m impressed with how good it is considering that it is for a TV show.  Blake Neely is an amazing composer.

I loved the line at the end of the episode when Barry admitted that he’s not perfect.  “You still hurt.  You still love.  You still wish, and hope, and fear things.  And you still need people to help you with all of it,” he said.  Even though he’s a superhero, Barry still feels pain, sadness, and fear.  This makes Barry’s character more relatable and a good role model for the younger viewers.

In “Fastest Man Alive,” the creators set up another storyline for Barry: working with Joe to find his mother’s murderer.  I like that there is a lot going on with this show.  We have a lot of storylines to follow, so I know we won’t be getting bored any time soon.
