Dog Movies

Hello everybody!  It has been a long time since we last posted on the BRIDGE Teacher’s Blog.  We all hope that 2024 is going well for you.  Are you ready for spring and the beautiful cherry blossoms?   I will definitely go to Tsurumai Park in Nagoya to enjoy the sakura in a few weeks. 

By the way, my name is Joey, and I am a teacher at BRIDGE.  I will be updating the blog on a regular basis from now on.  Therefore, please leave a comment or talk to me in person at BRIDGE if you would like me to write about something!  I would be happy to follow any request that you might have. 

Today, I want to discuss one of my interests: dog comedies!!!  Since I was a little kid, I have always enjoyed funny movies featuring dogs.  Have you ever seen any American classics like 101 Dalmatians, Beethoven, or Air Bud?  If not, please watch these movies sometime and enjoy all the dog fun.  In my opinion, there are 3 important ingredients when you make a dog film. 

1. Crazy Story Idea

When you want to make a comedy with dogs, it is necessary to keep the story silly and loose.  For example, in Air Bud, a dog starts playing basketball.  

2. Wacky Dog Action

Everybody loves seeing dogs on the screen, especially when they are running, jumping, barking or tricking humans!  Beethoven has so many great scenes of dogs destroying furniture and making a mess in a house.  

3. Good Music 

In order to have a fun atmosphere, good music needs to be included.  For dog movies, an upbeat song with a lot of energy can add so much to the tone.  Personally, I enjoy the 2001 Disney TV movie Hounded, which has great tunes including “The Dogs Are Coming” from Stanley E. Smith. 

Please watch a dog movie and talk to me about it!  If you have any recommendations, let me know.  Have a great week!
