Good week of watching movies. Not only did I get the Die Hard in, but the wife wanted to watch another Xmas movie, so I didn't take requests--put in the perfect compliment to Die Hard: Lethal Weapon.
And it's weird what I never noticed until this viewing of the movies back to back. Namely, the commonalities:
- Michael Kamen did the music for each. This is a guy that doesn't get much lip service, but he scored these(as well as many more): Die Hard 1&2, Lethal Weapon 1&2, Highlander, Adventures In Babysitting, Roadhouse, The Last Boy Scout, Tales From The Crypt: Demon Knight, Event Horizon, and X-men. But I digress.
- Mary Ellen Trainor is in both of these movies, as well as actors Al Leong(an Asian guy you'd recognize from 100 other movies), and Grand L. Bush(who played the black FBI Agent Johnson).
There may be even more, but I either forgot about them or didn't notice.
Then tonight, Xmas night, after we got home the wife wanted to watch another Xmas movie. She wanted to watch Christmas vacation, and I'm always up for that. As always, a fun movie.
Okay, anyway, the best of list is coming for sure. Been working the past couple of days on the banquet video. It's coming in long, so I'm gonna have to do some cutting. I'm used to this though...
