Wow! What a great recommendation from Brenda. I love that movie and now I need to find it. My pick also consists of music, music, music. One of my all time favorites. In fact, you can see it in the SIS scroll about 1/2 way down the page.
My Pick of the Week: That Thing You Do
Love the story line. Love the characters. Love the music. One would think that if you had to listen to the same song about 30 times in the same movie, you'd get tired of hearing it. This is so not the case here. You want to hear it. You want to listen for the subtle changes and how the song and the character's grow throughout the movie. Tom Hanks is amazing as usual. If you haven't seen this movie and you could use a little lift, I highly recommend you check it out!

This month I've picked a movie about zombies and a movie about a boy with scissors for hands. I'm not really into slasher movies (I used to kind of like them, but now I get way too scared when that music starts) so this week I'll go with a movie that has great costuming!
My Pick of the Week: Amadeus (1984)
I haven't seen it for years, but when I think of costumes, it's the first movie that comes to mind. I can't imagine that this is what these people wore every day! Not to mention the masks at the masquerade ball. And Tom Hulce's laugh gets me every time.
From IMDb: Antonio Salieri believes that Mozart's music is divine. He wishes he was himself as good a musician as Mozart so that he can praise the Lord through composing. But he can't understand why God favored Mozart, such a vulgar creature, to be his instrument. Salieri's envy has made him an enemy of God whose greatness was evident in Mozart. He is set to take revenge.
