Armstrong brings up music themes in movies and their power, including the use of drone/horn blast sound in trailers (and that Armstrong simulated in the creation of the theme of this show) created initially by Hans Zimmer for Inception. Both hosts agree that the Wonder Woman theme is fantastic. It is also composed by Hans Zimmer and Junkie XL, who is a proponent of the overpowering sonic wall in movie soundtracks, cf: loudness wars.
