*Cue opening title crawl*

Movie themes have become an integral part of the movie experience, even though they sometimes can be overshadowed by the film it’s representing.  When done right, the theme can be as iconic as the film itself turning a good movie into one that is remembered for all time. This week join Tuong La and the A-Team Samantha Leggatt, Angus MacDonald, and Leslie Cserepy as they try not to scream at each other while coming up with the best Top 5 Movie Theme Songs.

Ground Rules

  • Talking about the core musical theme of the movie not any song from the soundtrack

  • The whole soundtrack does not count

  • If you can argue a particular song in the movie is the theme, than it could count if you can deliberate why you think it is

  • Tie breaker can be how well the theme fits into the movie vs how well it stands on its own

  • Quality of the movie is not a factor
