With the end of this season of Game of Thrones, there isn’t a weekly show that I want to use to take its place. So lets talk some movies.
I thought we would start this new series, and talk about some of the classics of cinema, these are going to be movies that should be part of anyone’s collection. We are going to be doing this like a normal Q&A, if you have a movie and/or questions on a modern classic, let us know. If you want to Join In, let us know as well.
Today’s Movie- one of three musicals I allow in my house that does not have Danny Kaye in it:
Zach:Good grief, I can’t even count how many times and different versions I have seen. For now, we’ll stick to the movie version, though.
David: About 2 weeks ago. I must have seen this movie a hundred times. I know all the songs, I know all the players, I’ve never seen the play though- but I love me some Olivia.
Zach:I mean it’s a classic, people. A true original, in its time. The cast, music, and idea was just perfect. 12 out of 10.
Zach:Growing up, I always tried to be like Kenickie. He was always my favorite, always will be. Looking back, I probably ended up being more like Sonny or Eugene. Suffice it to say, those were some…interesting days. Kenickie was edgy, cool, and was severely underrated compared to Danny. Danny way okay, but I always felt like he took his moves from Kenickie.
David: Oddly enough, I love Rizzo. She dominates the film to me, I know the whole history of Stockard Channing, and its a damn shame. She would have been a STAR in the 30s, 40s and/or 50s- I mean Bette Davis was a blazing sun- yet Stockard Channing got second billing on this great movie then vanished.
Zach:Can we say yes? I would like to live in that world where high school sweethearts made it a little bit more.
David: How? They going to go back and open a Delorian dealership in Sydney? The only way this lasts is if he knocks her up and they open up Xanadu Tire and Dents in Rydell. I’m not happy about how they are going to end up. The question is will Rizzo and Kenickie last. I think that does. She’s gonna *****-whip him until he ends up teaching auto-shop at Rydell and she becomes a manger at Target.
Zach:Ohhh I’m not really a big prequel/spinoff guy, but I would probably have to say Rizzo and Kinickie. Yes, yes, previous biased strikes again. For me, though, I always had a feeling there was more to the story with them two. Something just was a little…mysterious about them. It’d be cool to see Jeff and Stockard also get a more definitive role in the movie, other than sidekick.
David: Cannot agree more.
Zach: “We Go Together”, for sure. My high school choir sang that song and it always meant so much to me. For those who would care to remember their high school years, We Go Together does exactly that. Everything about that song describes exactly how every high school kid feels after graduation. Things will never change. How could they? After all…we’ll always be together.
David: I like “Summer Nights”. Sue me.
Can Olivia get me a friend, too? I mean I just love the whole setup. The best thing? You got both gangs, none of this whole- This is Marty, I’ve known her since 4th grade, this is Putzie, he’s a moron, but he’s ok. Etc. We get all our entros while setting up the plot.
next week, we do our first TV Show!
