After the first few editions of “Awesome Movie Gigs” bombed I wasn’t going to do a third one. But I found this draft cluttering up my post list and I thought, “What the hell? It’s not like I have any better ideas this week.”
Into The Wild (2007)
Lost in Translation (2003) – Seeing the sexiest woman alive sing a song from a band in Akron in Tokyo makes me proud to be from Ohio. And that’s not a feeling we Ohioan get very often.
Star Wars (1977)
The Little Mermaid (1989) – Well it would have been an awesome movie gig if Ariel hadn’t been off chatting with the seagull
Scent of a woman (1992)
It’s Pat (1994)
Mr. Holland’s Opus (1995) – I’ve never actually seen this movie. I just assume that there’s an awesome music scene in it.
Mars Attacks (1996) – Boy it was awesome to see Tom Jones singing Lenny Kravitz’s “Are You Gonna Go My Way.” or was that in The Jerky Boys?
The Cable Guy (1996)
10 Things I Hate About You (1999)
Southland Tales (2006)
Eddie and the Cruisers (1983)
The Wedding Singer (1998)
Beavis and Butthead Do America (1996)
Hedwig and the Angry Inch (2001)
