- Flicks in Five: The Sound of Music
Loosely based on a true story, The Sound of Music was last in the string of successful musicals by Rodgers and Hammerstein.November 12, 2013
- Flicks in Five: The Lion in Winter
Movie scores provide a huge portion of the story telling. John Barry wrote a choral score for The Lion in Winter that sets the stage for intrigue and the appropriate Plantagenet style backstabbing.October 29, 2013
- Flicks in Five: Monsters, Inc.
Our celebration of Pixar films continues this week as we look at Monsters, Inc., another Randy Newman-composed score.October 22, 2013
- Flicks in Five: Casablanca
So many Hollywood romances, so little time. But for sheer passion and a tale of (nearly) unrequited love, at least by movie's end, you can't beat Rick and Ilse in "Casablanca." Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman sizzled as the two star-crossed lovers trying to survive in war-torn North Africa. Sam plays again on Flicks in Five.October 8, 2013
- Flicks in Five: The Godfather
Certain movies make an impression upon you you can remember who you went to the movie with, what you were doing with your life, and especially what age you were. I was still in high school when this American crime film came out, and it was the sensation of 1972.October 1, 2013
