Movies & Music

I love movies, I love music and I love lists. So, here is a top ten list of some amazing songs from some movies: (Without repeating any from the last music list…)

1. “Joy to the World” Three Dog Night, from The Big Chill

2. “Jump Around” House of Pain, from Mrs. Doubtfire

3.  Both of these count as 1 entry – “Oh Maria” and “Joyful, Joyful” from Sister Act 1 & 2

4. “Loverboy” Silvia & Mickey, from Dirty Dancing

5. “Jump in the Line [Shake Senora]” Harry Belafonte, Beetlejuice

6. “You’re My Best Friend” Queen, The Breakup

7. “Damn it Feels Good to be a Gangsta” Geto Boys, from Office Space

8. “Twist and Shout” The Beatles, from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

9. “The Babysitting Blues” Elizabeth Shue, from Adventures in Babysitting

10. “Blinded by the Light” Manfred Mann’s Earth Band, from Blow

There are a million other great ones. I keep thinking of more, but I’ll control myself and keep it to 10.

What’s one song you love & every time you hear it, it reminds you of a certain movie?

5 Must-See Summer Movies

{Thanks Oscartini! I personally cannot wait to see Eclipse when I get back from Ireland! PS – A very very very happy birthday to one of my best friends in the world, Miss. Christine aka Salt. Love you! Can’t wait to celebrate when I’m back! Enjoy your day :)}

With the mercury hovering in the 80’s and 90’s and another hot, humid summer set to take over Boston, what activity is the perfect blend of popcorn, entertainment and air conditioner? A movie, of course! Seeing as I blog about all things movies over at Oscartini, I was psyched when Colleen asked if I would share my top summer movies while she’s living it up in Ireland!

So now without further ado, here are the 5 must-see summer movies of 2010. *Disclaimer: this list is by no means definitive and could indeed not be *your* cup of tea J

First up is Going the Distance, starring real-life on and off again couple Drew Barrymore and Justine Long (AKA the Mac Guy). Out on August 27, this romcom looks at the long-distance relationship between Drew’s character Erin and Justin’s Garrett, complete with its ups and downs. If the trailer is any indication, expect to laugh and cry in this late summer arrival!

Next up is a movie I know many people (ok, mostly women!) are psyched to see: Eclipse. The third movie in the Twilight Saga is out June 30, and unless you’ve been living under a rock the last 2 years, you know what Team Edward and Team Jacob mean! From what I’ve seen, this is a movie for boyfriends too, with a lot of vampire and wolf battle action sure to please everyone

Eat, Pray, Love, starring the always-wonderful Julia Roberts is out on August 13 and directed by Glee creator Ryan Murphy. Based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir of the same name, Eat Pray, Love promised to deliver some seriously awesome settings, with portions of the movie taking place in Italy, Indonesia and India. This is Julia’s first starring role since last year’s Duplicity, which didn’t do very well; I anticipate this will be a big hit this August!

Directed by The Dark Knight’s Christopher Nolan and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Inception looks like this summer’s biggest thriller.  Out on July 16, word on the street is that this is one movie that you will really need to pay attention to, or else you’ll get lost, which doesn’t always make the best summer movie! IMDB’s synopsis on Inception is: “In a world where technology exists to enter the human mind through dream invasion, a single idea within one’s mind can be the most dangerous weapon or the most valuable asset.” Sounds cool, right?

And now, the absolute must-see movie of the summer is…Toy Story 3! Out since June 18th, Woody and Buzz’s third and final installment has been at the top of the box office and has been receiving great reviews from audiences and critics, with some early Oscar buzz too! Andy’s toys are donated to a daycare center when Andy goes off to college; expect to see lots of new characters and an awesome big screen experience for all ages!

So there you have it Daily Craic readers, my top picks for this summer’s best movies! Do you agree or disagree with any of these picks? Which movies are you looking most forward to seeing this summer?
