#STS: The Bodyguard



Welcome to another New Theme!

Yup, my creative juices have been flowing.  This theme will most likely be a once a month theme, depending on popularity and how I am feeling at the time.   I seem to have bitten off a big ole bite of creativeness lately, and hopefully my body and brain will allow me to keep up with it.

Have you ever been watching a movie and thought to yourself, “Hey, this is some pretty good music here!”?   That is what this theme is all about. Soundtracks from movies.

Today’s soundtrack is courtesy of the movie ‘The Bodyguard’ starring Whitney Houston and what’s his name, er..  Kevin Costner.

The Synopsis of the movie:

In her film debut, Whitney Houston plays Rachel Marron, a pop music superstar. It seems that one of her fans is stalking her and has threatened to kill her, so Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner), a professional bodyguard and former Secret Service agent, is hired to protect her.

The film then follows Rachel Marron's life from performance to performance. Each performance features her singing a song (including Houston's hits I Will Always Love You and I Have Nothing) that reflects her emotional state. Frank Farmer successfully protects her from danger. Subsequently, and possibly as a result of his protection and the trust thus inspired, Rachel Marron falls in love with Frank, and, though he tries to keep their relationship professional, they sleep together. However, recognizing that their relationship puts her and her family in danger, he breaks-off the affair and heightens moves to protect her (many such previous moves were shot down by Rachel). Ironically, in an effort to separate Rachel from her own world, Frank introduces Rachel to his own father and personal life. As the story follows a number of potential stalkers, Rachel must put her trust in Frank ahead of her own selfishness and desire for success; as Frank must face the fact that the threat may not be what was expected. In the end, Frank's duty is fulfilled, having successfully protected Rachel, and they part with a kiss. Frank then moves on to his next assignment...to protect an archbishop.

  2. How can you tell which videos have restrictions? That's a constant problem for me...

    Whitney had a good voice, didn't she? And how sad that sentence was in past tense...

    1. John.. you have to check each video. Do a google/bing search for "YouTube Region Restriction Checker" should be the polsy.org.uk link. You have to copy the URL from YouTube into the checker, and it then tells you locations allowed/disallowed.

  3. I don't know why but the song "I Will Always Love You" drives me crazy.

  4. I've never seen The Bodyguard surprisingly. Seems like I should have, but I guess it just never piqued my interest.

    I've seen a few movies of late where the soundtracks really stood out and I even thought as I was watching them that I'd like to find a copy of the soundtrack. But as things seem to go for me these days, I can't seem to remember what the films were now.
