Musical Moments – Dirty Dancing (Part 2)

I am heading to the Theatre tonight to see Dirty Dancing on stage. I had never really fancied it in all honesty, but I am eventually going to see what it is like. If I enjoy it, always difficult when they are based on a pretty iconic film and that is certainly the case with this one.

I have already done a post in the past with Time of My Life, so thought I would go for She’s Like the Wind for today’s musical moment!

I haven’t listened to anything from the show so that will be a slight surprise.

V-Day . . . I’m a soppy romantic at heart!

I wasn’t going to mention that it is Valentine’s Day . . . Honest. But every year I cannot help but come up with something to post about. Last year I went for it with some huge posts and put together 100 Romantic Films but if you are more cynical than that here is a Top 10 of Anti Valentine’s Day Films!

No better way to start off than with this incredibly amazing (and soppy) quote from one of my all time favourite films ever. You cannot help but love When Harry Met Sally!

Posteritty – Film Quote Posters

I came across the incredible Posterity at some point on Twitter before Christmas, as someone had retweeted them for the very cool film calendar they were releasing. I then got it as a Christmas present (after sending the link on) and after that bought some of the posters. I have eventually got round to putting them up on my wall and thought it was well  worthy of it’s own blog post and to encourage my fellow film fans to check out the website for the fantastic minimalistic images and some with quotes.

I have therefore picked some of my favourite quotes from my favourite films. I am sure you won’t be surprised with my choices!

Why Dirty Dancing should not be remade . . .

A lot of speculation and rumours online yesterday about a possible remake for ‘Dirty Dancing’. I am in the please don’t remake it side. I just cannot understand why a film which is still so loved and watched over and over should be remade. Even if you try to update it, it won’t have the same effect at all. You could not get away with the same lines which while some are so cheesy yet some are so brilliant. It would not be the same hearing someone different say them after nearly 25 years of this film. Patrick Swayze’s best known film and why all women (including myself) love him.

No way the ending could be recreated like that, and with that song . . . which everyone just loves to dance and sing along to. A very big hit at party’s and discos, with people trying to recreate the lift! (Yes I have been attempted to be lifted before).

A Life in Movies

The latest blogathon event around the film-blogging world is ‘A Life in Movies’ this quite simply means I have picked a film from each since I was born. That year being 1987. The approach I have taken to this post is to document the films which have meant something to me. Mainly from that time (although the first couple of years will be that I watched them when old enough to remember).

I always enjoy doing blog posts like this one as it always lets you take a trip down memory lane when it comes to certain films. Also the thought of then posting them the same day as many other blogs and then having the chance to compare and see if they have chosen any of the same films in their list as well.

Most of the films in my list consist of my most watched films ever. Mainly because of over watching as a child and not being able to pass the film over if it is on TV now. So here goes my life in movies . . .
