The Muppets!

Posted on November 22, 2011 at 8:00 am

Hurray for the Muppets and hurray for Disney and Jason Segal for bringing them back! “The Muppets” is one of the best movies of the year. When your children want more, try The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie, and The Muppets Take Manhattan!

The Original: ‘Footloose’ (1984)

Posted on October 9, 2011 at 3:59 pm

The original Footloose was one of the decade-defining movies of the 1980’s, with a sensational soundtrack that included the title song by Kenny Loggins, “Let’s Hear it for the Boy” (Deniece Williams), “Dancing in the Sheets” (Shalimar), and “Holding Out for a Hero” (Bonnie Tyler).

In this week’s remake, Blake Shelton covers the Kenny Loggins title tune, and Jana Kramer sings “Let’s Hear it for the Boy.”  The song I am most looking forward to hearing is new, though: Big & Rich sing “Fake ID” with Gretchen Wilson!

Trailer: The Three Musketeers

Posted on October 9, 2011 at 3:49 pm

I’m always excited about another version of The Three Musketeers!

As we wait for this acrobatic remake from the director and star of “Resident Evil,” we can revisit some of the best of the previous versions.  Here’s Gene Kelly showing off his athletic skill in one of the sword fights from the 1948 version.

I’m not a fan of the 1993 version with Charlie Sheen and Chris O’Donnell.  My favorite is still the sumptuous and unbridled 1973 version directed by Richard Lester.
