Wayne’s World – Soundtrack

This week’s film is Wayne’s World! Being a SNL fan, I can’t believe it has taken me this long to watch this! A cult and comedic classic this week I will be showing you the music, photos/gifs/quotes and ending the week with a review.

Wayne’s World is mostly known for its “Excellent!” soundtrack. Heavily featuring rock, it brought Queen back to life with the famous head banging scene. So enjoy the soundtrack to start off your week…

Oscar Nomination Slides 

So if you watched the Oscars you would have notice (and possibly loved) the beautiful slides that displayed in front of most of the nominations. 

An example of The Grand Budapest Hotel Director Nomination slide. 

They were just great. I have found this article from Slate.com about the creative mind behind it. I really think they deserve more attention and I agree with the article where it says they were one of the best parts of the Oscars.

What’s on?

It’s the end of the week. You’re looking for something to do. Cinema? Sound’s like a good choice to me, so here’s a listing of what’s on in cinemas this week.

(I’ll mainly do listings for the UK, but if I add a US film listing in I will state it’s UK release date)

If you’re looking for a feelgood film…

If you’re looking for a thrill-seeker film…

Focus (1)

Will Smith stars as a brilliant con man, when Margot Robbie comes along and tries her hand at being a con artist herself. The two try and pull off the ultimate con but people could get hurt on the way.

Something for the kids…

Big Hero 6

Adorable animation feature from Disney is next. It would surprise me if most families hadn’t already seen this, but if you haven’t it is a must.

2 words: huggable robot.

For a laugh…

The Wedding Ringer

Comedy giant Kevin Hart plays a business man who’s in the business of supplying best man services to those in need. Josh Gad stars as one of those guys. Gad is marrying Kaley Cuoco Sweeting, but without any guy friends he needs to find a best man and groomsmen fast. Enter Kevin Hart.

Last chance to see…

Birdman

Best picture winner at the Oscars this year, Birdman is unmissable. With outstanding performances and incredible cinematography it is one of those films that just beg to be watched.

Suggestions?

Hello! So I’m going to try something new, instead of doing my usual Music Monday, Wild Wednesday and Film Friday. I want to start the week with a film in mind. Pick my favourite piece of music, my favourite quote, some favourite scenes and then finish with the week with a review/summary. It might be a new film I’ve just seen or a film new to me that might have been out for years and years.

I would really like everyone’s opinion on this and please let me know if you think this new format is something you would be interested in reading. Or if I should just stick to the old ways. Tweet me, comment here or let me know somehow!

Thanks!!

Ghostbusters Casting (SNL)

Hello!

Today I would like to address the new cast of the Ghostbusters reboot. So by now, if you care about this film at all, then you would have heard who Paul Feig has hired as his all female cast. The problem is, that if people don’t watch Saturday Night Live and the likes would have not of heard of half of the cast. Here they are in their gloriousness…

Ok so most of you, if not all of you, know who Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig is. But the other two are (in order according to the photo above) Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. They are more of American fame if anything, but they are currently regulars on SNL.

I think that most people should know who these women are, and how funny they are. Luckily for us, 3 of the women above have been or are cast members of SNL and McCarthy has hosted 3 times. So, I am going to lace this post with my favourite SNL sketches featuring your new Ghostbusters. So please make your mind up about the casting through their comedy not their gender. You may not think they are funny, and that’s fine. Humour is a perspective thing, not everyone finds the saw things funny.

Personally, I think this reboot is going to be pretty great. I am super excited! But to tide everyone over until 2016, here are those promised sketches:
