[Blogparade] Thursday Movie Picks #103

http://wanderingthroughtheshelves.blogspot.ch/

Wanderer von Wandering through the Shelves hat vor längerer Zeit diese kleine Parade namens "Thursday Movie Picks" ins Leben gerufen und ich möchte 2016 nun mit einsteigen. Es geht darum, jeden Donnerstag eine Liste mit drei Filmen zu einem Thema zu posten. Da es sich ausserdem um eine englische Challenge handelt, werde ich die Liste zweisprachig machen. So kann ich auch gleich mein Englisch trainieren ;)
Includes English version (sorry for all mistakes!) :)


#103 - High School Reunion
  1. Zack and Miri Make a Porno/Zack und Miri machen einen Porno
    Ich habe diesen Film vor vielen Jahren gesehen, aber ich erinnere mich daran, dass er ziemlich lustig und manchmal sogar romantisch war. Und irgendwas mit einem Klassentreffen war da auch.

    I've watched this movie many years ago but I remember it being quite funny and sometimes even romantic. And there was something about a reunion.
und... das war's. Ich habe mich durch so viele Listen und Homepages gearbeitet, aber all diese Filme - Ich habe sie nicht gesehen. Jetzt frage ich mich, ob ich zu wählerisch bin, wenn es zu Filmen kommt...

and... that's it. I've been through many lists and websites but all those movies listed - I haven't seen them. Now I wonder if I'm to picky when it comes to movies...
 
Welche Filme fallen euch so ein?
What other movies come to your mind?

  1. I struggled this week, too. I did manage three movies and Zack and Miri is one of them. Great pick.

    1. Alle oben genannten, bis auf das Letzte, fanden sich auch auf den Listen, die ich im WWW gefunden hab. Blöderweise habe ich die alle nicht gesehen :/

    2. Ich find das irgendwie unfair Serien gegenüber. Auch ich habe mich im WWW umgesehen, und dort eigentlich nur Filme gefunden, aber Serien haben doch einzelne Episoden, in denen auch diese Themen behandelt werden.

    3. Stimmt schon, oftmals fallen mir sogar mehr Serien ein als Filme. Ab und zu, wenn mir sonst nichts einfällt, nehme ich auch eine Serie mit rein. Ich schummle gerne ;)

  3. Zack & Miri was okay mostly because of Rogan and Elizabeth Banks but I'd never watch it again.

    I had a bit of a hard time too but came up with three and an extra that I had watched especially for this but it was so downright dreadful I had to include it with a warning.

    Lifeguard (1976)-Lifeguard Rick Carlson (Sam Elliott) loves his work and his laid back Southern California life. But when he attends his 15 year high school reunion he starts to feel he is stuck in a rut. Restarting a romance with his school sweetheart Cathy (Anne Archer), now a divorced mother of a young son, he becomes even more confused about his future.

    Prodigal Sons (2008)-Fascinating documentary by Kimberly Reed who returns home for her high school reunion to an uncertain reception…when she left town years earlier she was a man. Looks equally at her interaction with her former classmates and her estranged family, her adopted brother, who has been permanently disabled in a car accident, has a surprise of his own-his birth mother was the daughter of Orson Welles and Rita Hayworth! At times very sad but always interesting.

    Spring Reunion (1957)-Returning to his hometown to sell his house one-time “Most Likely to Succeed” footloose wanderer Fred Davis (Dana Andrews) has no intention of attending his upcoming 15th year reunion until he runs into successful but lonely real estate agent and the “Most Popular Girl” Maggie Brewster (Betty Hutton), his former girlfriend. As they take tentative steps towards each other their different perspectives might ruin their chance for happiness before they are even sure they have one. Subdued meditation on failed dreams was the troubled Hutton’s last feature film as well as one time silent movie queen Laura La Plante’s final bow, she plays Betty’s mother.

    Dishonorable Mention- Back in the Day (2014)-Moderately successful actor Jim Owens (Michael Rosenbaum) returns to Indiana for a high-school reunion. During the course of the time he’s home he acts like an idiot and so do most of his friends doing stupid and outlandish things. I watched this specifically because it seemingly fit this week’s theme so well but it was so moronic I had to list it with a caution and look for another actually good movie.

    1. It's the same with me - I don't think I'll ever watch it again.
      Wow, I'm impressed that even you struggled a little this week. But your picks fit perfectly! Sorry to hear that the last one wasn't that good.

  4. I have not seen this one but I might one day...when it's on tv:) This was a tough one this week because I'm not one for this theme and realized I had not seen many movies with this theme in it.

    1. That sounds like a plan :) Same with me, that's why I ended up failing so badly :/

  7. You picked a great one, so...no biggie. There are some solid comedies out there on this theme. I totally recommend my picks this week and many that I've seen around on this theme.
