Article Excerpt:

Having covered the most astounding visuals from the first half of 2014 let's move on to Sound.This is when I suddenly become shy,mutable,and tongue-tied as a critic.You may read this post at any decibel level but please know that I'm whispering it.A truth: sound is the aspect of filmmaking for which I feel least qualified to judge.I try to absorb what's happening in underscoring and with the mix and editing.I'm definitely more attuned that I once was.But the fact remains that my ears are neither as well trained nor as aggressive in consumption as my eyes.I love to hear other people talk sound and scoring (I recommend the bookThe Conversationsby Walter Murch which is on film editing but it touches on sound as well) so please do share your favorites in the comments.I'll probably learn something if you do.At the very least I'll have more to consider.

If I had to vote right now...

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE:Captain America: The Winter Soldier(Henry Jackman);Godzilla(Alexandre Desplat);The Grand Budapest Hotel(Alexandre Desplat);Noah(Clint Mansell);Snowpiercer(Marco Beltrami)...though I'd be hard-pressed to tell you why in all five cases other than that I responded to the music and thought it a fine match for the material tonally

BEST SOUND MIXING & EDITING:In these categories I'd undoubtedly go with some mix ofthe otherwordly bestial movieslikeGodzilla,NoahandHow To Train Your Dragon 2and I'd most definitely opt forUnder the Skinand not just because my BFF and I leaned toward each other and whispered Yaz's "I Before E Except After C"lyrics during the enormously creepy vocalizations in the first minute of the film.But other than that I'm open to suggestions...

BEST ORIGINAL SONG:And now we can raise our voices againafter the jumpbecause I have five I LOVE already and we're only half finished with 2014.Guess what they are...
