A few weeks back I watched "Singles" for the first time in long while; it's sooooo dated, but still great. While "Almost Famous" is still probably my favorite Cameron Crowe movie, this one gets serious points for nostalgia and makes me want to head up to my parents' attic when I'm home for Thanksgiving to try to dig up all my old flannel shirts. Matt Dillon's character still makes me swoon, as do the supercute cameos by Eddie Vedder.
A romantic comedy that features Bridgett Fonda and Matt Dillon. Pretty entertaining and showcases the 90's grunge look.
This is how I discovered I wanted to be a sound garden groupie. The soundtrack to the movie single is wonderful but the film is so so, a bit boring. This was romantic comedy that made more sense in the last five years than it did in 1992 when I was just beginning to understand what or who I was going to be. The movie is set in Seattle with you guessed it a soundtrack of grunge (except for Nirvana). I mean, the soundtrack starts with “Would” by Alice in Chains and ends with “Drown” by the Smashing Pumpkins. In between, you get tracks from Pearl Jam, Sound garden, and Mudhoney. Overall I recommend the album because music is never dated but the film, gosh I can start hating the 90s again because of it.
