Thursday Movie Picks: It's a Party!
For the 50th week of 2018 as part of Wandering Through the Shelves' Thursday Movie Picks series hosted by Wanderer. We venture into the theme of parties where there’s films that celebrate some form of enjoyment and with 2018 about to end in a few weeks. Why not party as it’s a time to celebrate the good times or something that is to end. Here are my three picks:
1. Animal House
TOGA! TOGA! TOGA!!!! The ultimate college film that is the standard bearer of gross-out, balls-out, politically-incorrect comedies. Snobs vs. slobs. The elitist snobs want to rule the campus and make themselves look good yet the misfit slobs just want to party and create as much chaos as they can. What more could you ask?
2. Bachelor Party
Tom Hanks is about to get married to Tawny Kitaen and his buddies decide to celebrate with a bachelor party. An underrated film from the 1980s is this raunchy yet hilarious comedy where a man is given a great party but is aware that his future in-laws don’t like him very much while the former boyfriend of his fiancée wants him to give her up. It’s a film that never takes itself seriously while it also has a lesson in which Hanks’ future mother-in-law would learn that in some cases. Size does matter.
It’s the last day of high school as a trio of buddies are trying to supply booze for the upcoming party hosted by Emma Stone in one of her early film appearances. Yet, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera try to get as much booze and such for the party while their friend McLovin’ gets beaten up by a robber and later hangs out with a couple of cops who sees that he’s a cool kid and make him even cooler. It’s a wild film but certainly a whole lot of fun to watch.
