Other than that, pretty good movie, but I don't really get the hype.
Inception a sound track is only one song.
Excatly. It was either the loud "BOMMMMMMMMMM" or it was that 4-chord progression used during the "dramatic thought-provoking" scenes, like at the end of the movie, etc.
It's the latter that just appears throughout 12 Years a Slave on a regular basis. It's the same chord progression, same tempo, same everything (even the same key). I think one note was changed -- the third note was moved an octave higher in 12 years. That's it -- that's the only difference, if you can call it that. So, personally it took me out of the movie a bit.
