Integrating Hit points musically

Hit points in the music should never feel like you added an element at random on top of a music bed just to hit an action. Great film music manages to give hit points a musical plausability. If you listen to that music alone, you definitely get that there is obviously something happening at a certain moment but it feels musical. Very often, inexperienced film composers simply try to accent hit points without really writing the music accordingly but just placing a snare drum hit, a horn rip or whatever at the point in the music. This might still work in the movie but will feel very random when listening to the music alone.
