Some of my favorite David Fincher films include, but are not limited to, Se7en, Fight Club and Zodiac. Another film that definitely makes the cut for me is Great Expectations. But unlike opera, these songs embrace folk rather than classical idioms.
Do you remember where you were in the summer of 1965? I’m taking a wild guess that most of you weren’t born yet. For those of us who were, I’m not as old as you think, I was 2 years old in 1965; don’t remember the summer of 1965 either. But music historians do, and Cher fans have become well acquainted with the time. She received her first #1 record then, “All I Really Want To Do.” This was long before the beaded Bob Mackie gowns, the sold-out concert tours, the worldwide smash hits, and film awards would come much later.
Nicole Kidman 12 years a slave awards years a slave awards for her role in 2002 movie ‘The Hours.’ Kidman’s new movie, ‘Rabbit Hole’ is premiering in theaters on Christmas Day.
To me, the indisputable centerpiece of the film is Peppe Barra singing “Tammurriata Nera.” At the same time, you’ve got M’Barka Ben Taleb and Max Gasella singing “Pistol Packin’ Mama” in Arabic and English, respectively – a song made famous by Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters in 1943. Was this arrangement your idea? (Listen to the performance HERE).
Another director that is impossible to overlook is Steven Spielberg. Some of Spielberg’s most recent movies include Saving Private Ryan, The Terminal, Munich, War Of The Worlds, and Minority Report.
I’m not a snob at all, but that’s not really what I want to spend my life doing. The first film I directed, Mac (1992), was about Italian American builders.
So what makes a good treadmill movie? Something so mindless that you really don’t have to pay attention? One that has things bouncing up and down more than a porn movie? Actually, a treadmill movie is kind of like an airplane move; it keeps you engaged, passes the time, and you can follow the plot without having to pay close attention to, or even listen to, the dialog. The question of what movies were best for treadmills intrigued me, so I got on my treadmill and started watching movies.
Munny, Logan and the Kid arrive in Big Whiskey they interface with Little Bill in the saloon. Logan and the Kid go upstairs to get “advance-payments” from the prostitutes while Munny stays downstairs only to receive a whipping. Like all good westerns, this one also has a love story.
