We just finished watching the movie La Bamba in Spanish 2, which my students liked a lot. We watched it in English with Spanish subtitles. To make the film add to language acquisition and to not have it just be “watching a movie” we did several activities with it. I did some of these activities as stations.
First, we read a summary of the movie and did a cloze activity with it. While reading it in class, you could even have someone write a simple true/false quiz.
Second, we listened to the song La Bamba and did some vocabulary with it.
Third, we did a sequence activity. I printed out very large lyrics and gave each student a part of the song. As I played the song, they lined themselves up in order. I gave them two tries.
I created this screen shot video:

Here is a collage that I used for a speaking assessment:
