Video: For those of us who don’t read the books, Game of Thrones has finally shown us one of the most important places in Westeros. Some significant events went down there. But for one YouTuber, the scene was missing a bit of gravitas.
When anything requires a sense of awe, the obvious place to turn is the music of Ennio Morricone… you know, the composer for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, and basically every other great spaghetti Western since the beginning of time itself. This sepia-tinted fan re-edit also crops the brooding, gritty swordfight to a widescreen aspect ratio for even more of that Sergio Leone feel. But honestly, the music alone would have worked wonders. “The Ecstasy of Gold” could make drying paint look brave.
Did you watch the lightsaber edit of this scene? Sorry to say, you’ve wasted your time, because this is clearly the superior version.
