Monday's Movie Music

Am I the only one who thinks Zach Braff resembles a young John Ritter?*

I discovered a clip of one of my favorite singers, Imogen Heap, singing Let Go coupled with scenes of Braff's film Garden State.

I have to rent this film. Have any of you seen it? Looks really intriguing. Plus, Natalie Portman is in it. I love Natalie Portman. Sure, she's smart and beautiful, but her face is so incredibly expressive. She positively inspires me to poetry!

You can light up a square mile

if you make Miss Portman smile;

Skies will turn stygian, by golly,

when Natalie looks melancholy.

Tomorrow, I'll share a different music video clip from one of her other films. Five points if you can predict which one.

*Apparently other people did see the resemblance between Braff and Ritter. I just read that Ritter played his character's father on Scrubs. Excuse me, I have to go sweep out the cave in which I've been living.

I love that song. (Let go).
First heard it on "So you think you can dance".... I admit, I'm an addict for that show.

Got in on my iPod even. :D

Jen said...

Oh, also have "hide and seek' by Imogen Heap on my iPod too!

Garden State is a great movie with an even better soundtrack. I've been listening to it for years to go to sleep. I definitely see the resemblance between John Ritter and Zac Braff.

Did you see the prequel to the Dajarling Limited with her? Loved it.
She was also fantastic in her short in Paris J'taime.

I loved Garden State. I went in having no idea what it was about, and like you I love Portman. She did not disappoint. Such an endearing, intriquing story.

Oh and I bought the soundtrack, too. I rarely to never buy a movie soundtrack. There were so many riveting songs that I just HAD to hear again and again.

HEY! I must be a fellow cave-dweller, because I didn't think anyone else even KNEW about Imogen Heap!

She reminds me a lot of Everything but the Girl before they went hyper-techno...

You're so right! This is a great tune. I have this soundtrack and I love the movie. In fact, a couple of my favorite songs of late are on that soundtrack.
