There’s something both magical and powerful when music and film are combined together. It can make us laugh, make us cry, and definitely have us singing the tune long after the movie is over. Here’s a short list of my favorite musical numbers from film, some are from conventional musicals, and others aren’t. Some you’ll totally agree with and others will make you say “Marc, what the f*@k were you thinking?” Let’s go.
Maybe you’re looking to save a few bucks or the current theater choices just aren’t cutting it. Whatever the case may be, sometimes it’s just as nice to sit at home and watch a good flick. Take a look at this week’s picks for some At-Home Alternatives to the weekly cinema options.
Happy International Star Wars Day!! The day is here for us to celebrate the magic and excitement of Star Wars! For the last five weeks, we’ve been releasing fun drinking games and delicious beer recommendations for those games, but, alas, our time has come to a close. But don’t cry, our love for Star Wars and these drinking games will carry on a long, long time from now to galaxies far, far away. But to be honest, I highly doubt society will advance to the point where intergalactic travel is commonplace. We haven’t even discovered all surfaces of the earth yet, so what makes the human race remotely capable of exploring space to such detailed lengths? Granted, this could be thousands of years from now, but even then, will Star Wars be around remembered? If it is, bet it’ll be remade 2 or 3 times in that time frame by people with different visions and ambitions for their remakes. Maybe they pull a Gus Van Sant and do shot-for-shot remakes of the films. OR the entire thing is done like a found footage film… I’m rambling with no real depth or course of purpose so I will say this: Happy International Star Wars Day and as a contribution to the celebration, here is The Star Wars Episode Six: Return of the Jedi FTS Drinking Game. May the Force be with you… Always.
Can’t really complain about my April movie month. I enjoyed the Evil Dead remake, had great post-movie discussions with Lindsay about Trance, thought 42 was quite respectable, and was wowed by my IMAX visual experience with Oblivion. Not to mention I got to live out one of my childhood dreams by seeing Jurassic Park in theaters. I still really need to see The Place Beyond the Pines, Mud, and Pain & Gain so there’s still more April enjoyment to be had. May looks like it might be a decent follow up to all the recent success I’ve had at the theaters.
