Hey, guys! Welcome to another entry for Thursday Movie Picks. It’s a series hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves, so if you want to join the party, head over to her blog! It’s pretty easy: check out each week’s topic and come up with 3 to 5 movies that fit the theme. Let’s talk about some seriously iconic film scores (while trying to avoid the most obvious picks)!
#1 – Joker
Joker is currently getting all the awards for its amazing score. I was so impressed when I saw the film and can’t stop listening!
#2 – Wanted
The marvelous Danny Elfman is responsible for many a great movie score. For the action flick Wanted he came up with The Little Things which has been on all my playlists ever since.
About half an eternity ago I did a post where I described myself in 3 TV show characters. Today I’m going to continue: it’s movie time!
Hermione Granger (Harry Potter):
I remember seeing the movie in theaters and thinking: That is so me. Her attitude, her looks, her ambition. Even the sarcastic comments and that she’s constantly correcting everybody. Although I may not be that hyper-motivated when it comes to studying, I’m always well prepared and ahead of time. 100% me.
Beetlejuice is one of my all time favourite Tim Burton films. He’s one of my favourite directors and for this movie he got Winona Ryder on board. I love almost all of her 80s and 90s flicks but her role as Lydia is the most relatable for me. She has no friends, a taste for the dark and unusual. I was (and I guess I still am) a very weird kid with a slight obsession for the obscure. So yeah, you see the connection…
I’ve always loved horror movies, especially the once with a funny touch. I don’t know why it took me so long to write this post! Anyway, here’s my favourite horror comedies!
Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice is the most famous or at least well-known movie in this list. Although it’s not as dark and gore-y as the other films, I still love the atmosphere Burton creates here. It’s about a recently deceased couple who (as ghosts) are trapped inside their house and have to deal with the new owners.
Beetlejuice is quirky, funny and Winona Ryder is adorable in her role!
I recently wrote a few posts titled “Me from A to Z” which I really enjoyed. Since this blog started out as movie themed I decided to do an A to Z of my DVDs. I hope you enjoy it, here’s part 1 =)
A – Across the Universe:
For this movie a bunch of famous Beatles’ songs were taken. They created a story around them and here we have the movie. It’s about a young guy named Jude who comes to the USA to find his father. He falls in love with Lucy but their luck is overshadowed by war and protests.
Although the story has its lengths it was done very nicely. What I like most about the film is the soundtrack. Covering a Beatles song is difficult to do but the entire cast did a great job and the music is simply splendid!
