Movie Soundtracks

I am sure that this has been discussed before, and I SUCK for taking such a long 'posting hiatus', But... For me, the song selection can send a movie over-the-top in feeling and attraction. Examples: Less than Zero -- The combination of nostalgic 80's "hits" with tried and true classics all put perf...

I also have to give SUPER MAD PROPS to Hiller for leading 17 of the 20 rounds!

And whew... I made it through. A little rocky at first but I got the hang of it. It was fun but it will be nice to have a rest from it for a bit. LOL!

Scoreboard Round 20 Movie: Tsotsi Rating: :4.5stars: Review: Loved it. I really liked the pacing and style, and how good the director was at making us understand so much in very little time - backgrounds were filled in, motivations worked. This movie really made my heart hurt, but in a good way. Mo...

Scoreboard Round 19 Movie: Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House Rating: :3stars: Review: Bland is right: perfectly pleasant, but innocuous movie, which managed to provoke a few chuckles, but not much more. You could see most of the gags coming, and Grant wasn't at his best, but it was enjoyable eno...

Scoreboard Round 18 Movie: The Libertine Rating: :2.5stars: Review: It just didn't live up to the promising of it's opening monologue. I feel like the movie and the man were both more interesting in telling us how shocking they were than actually being transgressive (and for a man who claims to get...

I cannot add the film titles because I am already at the character max for a thread title. If you wanted to get the title in, you could perhaps shorten what's already there, i.e. put "R10" instead of "Round 10" and instead "Deadline: Friday 21st", you could put something like "Due Fri 21" or leave ...
