Movies That Rock!
(see also rockers who rock)
If your trade show booth is even half as rocking as any of these Movies That
Rock, you will be a bona fide Trade Show RockStar and a trade show success!
1. Spinal Tap (the inspiration for our motto,
Crank your Trade Show Marketing volume up to 11.) This mockumentary
group also crosses over to the category
Rockers Who Rock).
Spinal Tap, the original Movie that Rocks
4. Animal House
5. BraveHeart ("“Every man dies - Not every man
really lives.” - William Wallace)
6. The Sting
7. Star Wars (the original!)
8. Road Warrior (the sequel to Mad Max, which is a
pretty rockin' movie too)
9. The Matrix
10. Couples Retreat (I wanted to toss in a "newer
movie". The movie isn't really all that good, but the yoga scene is one of
the funny laugh-out-loud-until-you-cry-and-almost-pee-your-pants movie
scenes I've seen in a long, long time. Well worth watching the whole movie.)
11. Cowboys and Aliens
and Aliens takes the coveted #11 spot on this list of Movies that Rock. Now
you may be thinking that #11 is the lowest spot, which it would be on a
standard list. But remember the Spinal Tap volume knob and the motto of this
site, "Crank your Trade Show Marketing volume up to 11" (quick
translation: 11 is the best!)
I just saw Cowboys and Aliens on DVD last week, and it blew
me away! Maybe it was because I wasn't expecting much, but I think it's one
of the best movies I've seen this year. It is just pure fun. A big part of
it's success is Daniel Craig. The character he plays is awesome. I saw him
before as James Bond and thought he was ok, but in this movie he nails his
role and make the movie AWESOME. I also think that Harrison Ford turned in
his best performance in a long time.
The movie is great. Get some popcorn and pop in the DVD. And
remember to turn your surround-sound volume up to 11. :)
update: I'm thinking of adding a list of "Movies that Don't Rock", and
number one on that list would be Contagion. I had such high expectations...
but what a dud, and what a waste of time. But I suppose I should finish the
above list before I start a new one.
a work in progress...
