  • Spring

    Spring 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Mar, 2015

    Basically "Before Sunrise" as a horror movie, "Spring" is the latest genre bending genre film from the directors of "Resolution", a movie I found a little overrated but still liked to an extent.

    This film stars Lou Taylor Pucci, one of my favorite actors of all-time (looking a bit like Eminem here) as a guy who falls in love with a woman while in Italy. He spouts very Ethan Hawkey dialogue and even directly quotes "Before Sunrise". Thing is, the…

  • Growing Up and Other Lies

    Growing Up and Other Lies 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 29 Mar, 2015

    Reminiscent of the pub crawl from "The World's End", this bitingly honest, raw and hilarious comedy is about 4 college buddies on a quest to see all of Manhattan in a day. Glorious fun with very very funny dialogue and a killer performance by the always reliable "Medicine for Melancholy" star Wyatt Cenac, who plays a huge asshole in this movie and gets some great lines, the best lines in the movie actually.

    Wyatt is so funny in this movie, you'll forget you've seen it all before.

    Thank god it's all funny. This movie is fall down funny. Smart and biting.

    Somewhere 2010

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Mar, 2012

    I love this film. It's easily my favorite film of 2010. Elle Fanning is riveting, Dorff gives the performance of his career (ok, that's not saying much) and while it's more-or-less a companion piece to "Lost in Translation", it's also Coppola's nod to Antonioni. Love it.

  • Trouble Dolls

    Trouble Dolls 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 Mar, 2015

    I've always confused Jennifer Prediger and Josephine "Butter on the Latch" Decker. Well now the monster from the Arnold movie (Prediger) has teamed up with her real life biffle Jess "Vagina Dentata" Weixler for the hilarious and heartfelt comedy "Apartment Trouble".

    Really funny girly humor at play here as Topher Grace's murderer and Miss Teeth team up with Megan Mullally and The Last Man on Earth (Will Forte, not the fat guy named Todd) to direct and star as best…
