Week 15 - Soundtracks

I've been wearing out my portable CD player listening to all three original Star Wars movie soundtracks, in anticipation of their DVD release next month.

This week's questions are about movie soundtracks.

1) What is your favorite soundtrack from a movie?

2) Which movie's soundtrack didn't fit the tone of the movie, or was so badly composed it detracted from the movie?

3) Who is your favorite film music composer?

BONUS) Do you prefer an orchestral soundtrack, or a popular-music soundtrack? Why?

Week 14 - Vacation

Theatre Thursday will be taking a week off because Misty and Barry just eloped and are now honeymooning in the Himalayas.

(Just kidding!)

We'll be back next week with a brand new Theatre Thursday!

Week 13 - What's Old is New Again

Remakes - we see them more and more frequently. Taking an old movie and completely reshooting it with a new cast, new effects, new styles and even new genres can be a hit or miss proposition. This summer we've seen several remakes already, from The Stepword Wives (original and remake) to The Manchurian Candidate (original and remake), plus there's even an Alfie remake in production (original and remake).

1) What is your favorite remake of an older film? Did it actually improve on the original?

2) What remake was handled so poorly even if the original was not great it would've seemed Oscar-worthy?

3) Are there any classic films you feel would cause the fabric of space/time to rip apart were a remake made of it?

BONUS) What film would you most like to see remade, and what would be your dream cast?

Week 12 - Didn't I see that on TV?

Starsky & Hutch is the top selling DVD this week. With that in mind, this week the topic is TV shows that have been turned into movies.

1) What movie based on a television show is your favorite?

2) Your least favorite?

3) What television show would you like to see turned into a movie?

Bonus) Should the actors that portray these characters on TV also be used in the movie? Or would you like to see different actors?
