Entries in getting to know you (117)
I'm off to a Ghostbusters (2016) screening and these questions and a desire to hear your answers suddenly struck me:
1. Which male heavy movie would you most love to see rethunk with a female heavy cast?
2. If you had a vote for Best Original Song in 1984 which of the hit single nominees would you have gone for? (They were all huge hits)
"Against All Odds" (Against All Odds)
"I Just Called To Say I Love You" (The Woman in Red)
"Let's Hear It For the Boy" (Footloose)
...or would you have chucked out the nominees altogether to have "I Can Dream About You" (Streets of Fire) "The Heat is On" (Beverly Hills Cop) "Love Came For Me" (Splash), "Together Again" (The Muppets Take Manhattan), "Almost Paradise" (Footloose), "The Never Ending Story" (The Never Ending Story), "Together in Electric Dreams" (Electric Dreams), or maybe five songs from Purple Rain (even though it won an Oscar for Song Score - more Oscars for Prince!!!

What's on your cinematic mind? Inspire us with your brain vomit and Happy Weekend!
It's an open thread as your host is otherwise slammed at the moment. Are Oscar's all that's on your mind or are you a non-conformist this week and otherwise cinematically preoccupied? Do tell in the comments.
P.S. Just as I posted this news broke that Nate Parker's slave rebellion drama The Birth of a Nation, the Sundance sensation, has a release date now. It'll be a wide release (!) on October 7th, 2016 from Fox Searchlight. October is a good month for Oscar releases.
