June Weddings Video Archive



Well - it's June again, and June is the month jam packed full of weddings. I will be out for the rest of the week in New York for a super duper, mondo NY wedding. So, in honor of this celebration of love - let me put offer a few suggestions of our best wedding related video content. Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire, Jane Powell and Peter Lawford is a classic - it's the movie where Fred dances on the walls and the ceiling, created in a special room that could rotate slightly with the best dancer of all time. And who could forget - Mountain Wedding, with Ernest T. Bass, Barney Fife dressed in a bride outfit and some killer jug band bluegrass with the Dillards. Need more? Check out the Woody Allen special for a vintage wedding musical classic, and if animation is your bag, look no further than Popeye in Bride and Gloom. PLUS some archive footage of Princess Grace Kelly at her wedding, Prince Charles and Lady Di, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and much more. Just search for wedding and watch till your eyes get tired.

Alien Technology Video Game Repair



Long before he got the creampuff role as Edward R. Murrow, David Strathairn shined in his role as the alien dog bounty hunter in Brother From Another Planet. Directed by John Sayles, who also plays alien dog bounty hunter (2) - these whacked out knuckleheads chase the runaway alien Joe Morton all over New York City. I mean really - that is enough to want to go watch it, but there are a bunch of very memorable scenes that make it even better. A few favorites include - the part where he fixes he ton of old video game machines with alien technology. And i just loved the crazy card trick story on the subway.

Check out Frank Random's funky preview or watch the whole movie. Now available as Flash video - and Realplayer as well.
