Monday Movie Meme: Good Vibrations

Feature Presentation...


This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog are asking all about movies about music, so here's my pick:
  • I Wanna Hold Your Hand (1978) - Great comedy about some teenagers wanting to see the Beatles at the Ed Sullivan Show in the '60s by Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale who later went on to give us Back To The Future (these days Zemeckis now brings us motion capture animation films such as Beowulf and A Christmas Carol, and Bob Gale is a writer on the Amazing Spider-Man comic book)
  • The Blues Brothers (1980) - Two brothers wearing sunglasses are on a mission from God to put on a concert to save an orphanage.
  • Josie And The Pussycats (2001) - Cool live remake of the '70s TV cartoon with a great soundtrack and Parker Posey.
  • 24 Hour Party People (2002) - A tale of the Manchester music scene from the '70s to the '90s.
  • A Mighty Wind (2003) - Cool fictional tale of folk concert reunions with a great soundtrack and Parker Posey.

Parker Posey was quite funny in her improv roles - such as A Mighty Wind. I cannot believe we left off The Blues Brothers. Argh! Welcome back to the blogosphere. I thought you had drowned in the Atlantic, or in love, one or the other.
