oh yeah- one major one I forgot: Lord of the Rings. Check on the scene when Gandalf falls of of the Bridge of Khazad Dum (Track name, I think).

> I agree it is eerily similar- but mostly in the harmonic sense rather than

> vi
IV
I
V (perhaps suspend the third up a half step)

> In the key of C, this equates to this (try playing it if you have a
> piano):

> Aminor
FMajor
CMajor
G (Sus4)

> It is used in many scores, not just in "Children of Dune" and
> "Deep Blue Sea". Look for it in:

> The Rock
Chicken Run
Some of Gladiator- especially in "Now We
> Are Free"
Pretty much any war movie

> It is a really great chord progression, and it almost always sounds good.
