The Sound of Movies

With apologies to Julie Andrews, Richard Rogers, Oscar Hammerstein, the Von Trapp Family and all the fine citizens of Austria.

Chris Nolan's time-jangled flow of Memento,
Von Sant's Good Will Hunting was also quite good; though
Quent Tarantino's Pulp Fiction did rule,
I'd say that Get Shorty was equally cool.

It's a Wonderful Life is a Christmas tradition.
Heston in Spartacus led a sedition.
But Liberty Valance had Stewart and Wayne--
Those old black and whites really can entertain!

Hoosiers is the greatest sports movie ever,
But Spacey in K-Pax was terribly clever,
I think that Mixed Nuts was Nora's best flick,
But as comedies go, Best in Show is my pick.

Most outstanding actor must be Dustin Hoffman,
But Meryl Streep's surely the best of the women.
In this generation Matt Damon's the thing,
And of course, Nicole Kidman, who even can sing!

When the game's done,
When there's no fun
Anywhere to be had,
I can just pop in my favorite film
And then I don't feeeeel
Sooo bad.
