Innerspace is a favorite 80s movie and a great one for music.

In this Sci-Fi comedy, Lt. Tuck Pendleton (Dennis Quaid) volunteers to participate in a science project where he’ll be miniaturized. He’s put inside a pod and shrunken down to microscopic size before being sucked back into a syringe. The plan is to be injected into a rabbit, but things quickly go awry when the science project is hijacked. In an attempt to save him from being kidnapped while in the syringe, the head scientist injects Tuck into a human named Jack (Martin Short). Not long after, Tuck discovers that he’s actually inside a human man after he implants a camera into the optic nerve. Not only can Tuck see what Jack sees, but they can talk back and forth to each other as well. Together, these two have to find a way to get Tuck back out before Jack is taken out by the bad guys or Tuck runs out of resources.

My choice for “H” was a little difficult–I had to narrow it down from about seven movies and songs, but finally chose Hell or High Water. This ended up being one of the best movies from 2016.

I’ve probably seen this movie twenty times and never tire of it. In Fireproof, Caleb (Kirk Cameron), a fireman, is struggling with his marriage to Catherine (Erin Bethea). Caleb’s been quite selfish and refuses to help pay for house improvements because he’s saving to buy a boat. He also expects Catherine to maintain everything around the house even though she also works as a hospital administrator.

It’s all just added stress for Catherine as she struggles to help her parents because her mom has recently suffered a stroke.

It gets to the point to where Caleb and Catherine have little respect for one another and argue constantly. Catherine bursts–she can’t take it anymore and asks to leave the marriage. In a heated argument, Caleb agrees with her. Continue reading “A to Z Challenge: Music from Favorite Films “F” Fireproof “While I’m Waiting””
