It’s time for another movie review. Today I chose one of my favorite Michael J. Fox classics!
Scott is your average high school student. Until one day, he turns into a werewolf. Turns out, it’s something he inherited from his father! The wolf seems to be very popular but what about Scott?
So, I’ll be honest with you. This film is your typical 80’s flick. The only difference is that it comes as a werewolf. The movie isn’t particular smart, or outrageously funny. Michael J. Fox did better stuff.
Nevertheless it’s one of my favorites. The idea is cute and at times the story will make you laugh. The soundtrack is pretty cool. But most importantly: it has the real 80’s vibe. It feels kind of authentic and Michael J. Fox was definitely the only one who could have rocked the film like this. Continue reading
Here we have the positions 5 to 1 in my ranking of great musical scenes in movies:
5. Kill Bill – I walk like Jane Mansfield – The 5 6 7 8’s
Quentin Tarantino always sets new standards when it comes to using music in movies. I especially liked it when he convinced the Japanese girl band “The 5 6 7 8’s” to perform in his movie Kill Bill. When the bride enters the House of Blue Leaves they play “I Walk Like Jane Mansfield”. It’s an interesting combination, the danger that already hangs in the air mixes with the music and intertwines.
4. Streets of Fire – Tonight Is What It Means to Be Young
In this movie from 1984 Diane Lane plays a singer who is kidnapped by some gangsters and Michael Pare sets out to rescue her. Throughout the movie the band Fire Inc. has several performances and although Diane Lane didn’t sing herself I really liked it..The movie is a little strange, different and definitely worth watching. The music featured in the film is great, I was really impressed. My favourite song is “Tonight is What it Means to Be Young”. It captures the feeling of the movie really well and the lyrics are poetic. This movie is a must watch!
