Stream of Consciousness Summer Cinema 2009

It's that time of year again! My annual film festival is about to kick into action. This is the tentative list of films. I start with one movie, and then pick someone who worked in it and move on to another movie with that same person. A schedule will follow in the coming weeks.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Person of interest: Patrick Doyle

Henry V
Person of interest: Paul Scofield

A Man for All Seasons
Person of interest: Orson Wells

Citizen Kane
Person of interest: Agnes Moorehead

Charlotte’s Web
Person of interest: Richard M. Sherman

The Lion King
Person of interest: Robert Guillame

Big Fish
Person of interest: Albert Finney

Murder on the Orient Express (1974)
Person of interest: Sean Connery

The Hunt for Red October
Person of interest: James Earl Jones

The Sand Lot
Person of interest: Karen Allen

Raiders of the Lost Ark
Person of interest: John Rhys-Davies

Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Person of interest: Christopher Lee

Treasure Island (1990)
Person of interest: Christian Bale

Howl’s Moving Castle
Person of interest: Miyazaki

Spirited Away
Person of interest: John Ratzenberger
Wall-E
Person of interest: Sigourney Weaver

The Village
Person of interest: Brendan Gleeson

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Person of interest: Alan Rickman

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Person of interest: John Malkovich

Eragon
Person of interest: Patrick Doyle

FINAL FILM:
SECOND HAND LIONS



EDIT:
Yeah, we wound up not watching Second Hand Lions or Eragon. We went from Hitchhiker's Guide to The Italian Job, where it died. I think next year I'm going to do the thing either in pairs (sets of duo actors in two films) or pick one person that worked in all the movies.

  1. Danny says that "there are few movies that have destroyed a story as well as Eragon, the movie."

    Looks like you're in for a lot of Patrick Doyle this summer!

  2. Absolutely. I just picked it so that I could finish it with Patrick Doyle and a movie with Robert Deniro and Michael Caine. The rule is you have to finish with the same connection you started with, and the last film is the one that starts off the next year's festival.
