5 Favorite Movies (part 2) – NanoPoblano – Day 8


5 Favorite Movies (part 2) NanoPoblano – Day 8


It’s approaching that time again


For the 8th day of NanoPoblano, I am presenting part 2 of some of my favorite movies. 🙂


  • Jurassic Park, a science fiction/adventure, was released in 1993. It stars Laura Dern, Sam Neill, and Jeff Goldblum. (I like this one because it is about dinosaurs. When I was a kid, I wanted to dig up bones, and investigate mummies. I’d have loved to find dinosaur bones. I’d read the book, by Michael Crichton, before I saw the movie, and just knew it would make a great movie. It sure did.)
  • Zombieland, an apocalyptic comedy/drama, was released in 2009. It starred Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Abigale Breslin, and Bill Murry. ( I liked this because of course it is about zombies, and is actually pretty funny. I do like campy horror films.)

Since the holidays are coming up, here are two movies I liked.

  • Pieces of April, a comedy/drama, was released in 2003. It’s stars were Katie Holmes, Derek Luke, Patricia Clarkson, and Sean Hayes. (I like this one because it is about Thanksgiving, and all that can go wrong when family gets together.)
  • Family Stone, a comedy/drama, was released in 2005. It stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Diane Keaton, and Luke Wilson. (I like this one because it is about Christmas, and all the family dynamics that can happen when they all get together. It’s funny and dramatic.)
  • Selena, a biographical musical/drama, was released in 1997. It stars Jennifer Lopez, Edward James Olmos, Jon Seda, and Constance Marie. (I like this one because it tells the story of the singer, Selena. There is good music and, besides the awful ending, there are plenty of funny parts, too. Also, I had won tickets to see the premiere of this movie here in town. A radio station was having a call in contest, and I was the caller number that won. We saw it that night, and then went again a couple more times)


Here’s Selena, singing, “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”. This was released from the album, “Amor Prohibido”, in 1994. It was written by Selena Quintanilla Perez, A. B. Quintanilla, and Pete Astudillo. It is on the EMI Latin label.




Here is Jennifer Lopez singing, “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom”, in the movie she starred in, “Selena”.
