Happy birthday, Uma Thurman! Today, we celebrate this versatile actress by recognizing two movie soundtracks released by Lakeshore Records: Ceremony (watch it on Amazon) and My Super Ex-Girlfriend (watch it on Amazon). Both films star Thurman in two very different roles. From comedy to drama to scifi films, this statuesque beauty can do it all. Ceremony features a score by Eric D. Johnson (of The Shins) and a track from Pete Townshend and Ringo Starr. My Super Ex-Girlfriend features music by various artists including Fatboy Slim and Fine Young Cannibals.
In Ceremony, Uma Thurman plays Zoe, the object of her ex-boyfriend’s desire. Ex-boyfriend Sam (played by Michael Angarano), tries to win back Zoe’s heart at her fiancé’s beachside estate. Thurman is “G-Girl” in My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Her obsession with her ex-boyfriend (played by Luke Wilson) causes her to get out of control in super ways.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend. The film from Marvel Comics stars Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, a.k.a. Captain America, who, as his name implies, is one of the world’s Most Finest Superheroes fighting evil and corruption. Not all heroes are super. Bad supers aren’t trying to save the world. They’re just trying to make their little corner of it better. Sometimes, as we learn in the film Superbad, the greatest hero you’ll ever know is already standing right beside you; your best friend. Boop.
In Super, Rainn Wilson stars as Crimson Bolt, a delusional man on mission to save his wife from an evil drug dealer. In My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Uma Thurman plays G-Girl, a heroine-scorned who strays so far from justice that she nearly becomes a super-villain. In Crank, Jason Statham plays the unstoppable Chev Chelios, a true anti-hero who wades through the criminal underworld powered by nothing but epinephrine and a desire to hear his girlfriend pick up the goddamn phone. Here’s a playlist to celebrate those who stumble, trip, and fall into greatness – heroes who lose their way or have strange ideas about what constitutes a good deed.
