The second is (unfortunately) an Eddie Murphy movie called A Thousand Words. The premise sounds interesting – Eddie plays a man who learns he has only 1,000 words left to say before he dies. But we all know Eddie can’t make a funny movie anymore.
I’ll definitely be checking out the first, since I’ll watch anything with John Krasinski in it (including License to Wed). Janney’s a scene-stealer in any movie she’s in, so I might have to check out the Eddie Murphy movie anyway.
As the new year begins, we tend to look back over the past year. This past year at MovieSnobs, we started a new weekly post called Movie Tunes, which features reviews of movie soundtracks. We covered some great ones last year, so we thought we’d recap them before moving on with 2008.
The first Movie Tunes was one of my favorite soundtracks ever, one of my favorite CDs ever, in fact – Underworld, the Kate Beckinsale vampire movie with the hard rock soundtrack.
For Halloween, we had a review of the deluxe edition of the soundtrack for The Nightmare Before Christmas, which includes both the original soundtrack and new cover versions of the classic songs by Marilyn Manson, Fall Out Boy, and others.
Starting with my review of the Resident Evil: Apocalypse soundtrack, Mike implemented a nifty “Listen” button like the one below.
