We Need A Montage

Taking movie karaoke to its logical conclusion, the ’80s Movie Anthem Sing-Along cuts out the pesky interruptions of dialogue and plot: It’s one long string of synth-heavy bombast. Compiled by the Alamo Drafthouse, the reel is incredibly comprehensive—Flashdance, Goonies, Short Circuit 2—though most of the songs are not shown in their original context; instead, they’re either the official music video or a newly assembled montage from the film. So Jackson Browne’s “Somebody’s Baby” plays over Fast Times at Ridgemont High scenes of Jennifer Jason Leigh uncomfortably being somebody’s baby, then deciding not to have somebody’s baby. Still, you know: “Eye of the Tiger,” everybody! Hollywood Theatre, 7:30 pm Tuesday, April 26.
