    The Social Network


    I think this is David Fincher’s best work. Him and Sorkin are able to pull of incredible, believable dialogue. This is probably also my favorite performance from Jesse Eisenberg. He is able to pull of all the right mannerisms that really sell it. Andrew Garfield, Justin Timberlake, and Arnie Hammer all also knock it out of the park. Everyone always points to the beginning scene with Mark and Erica as the best scene, and it’s great, but you can’t top the scene where Garfield smashes the laptop and their friendship ends in possibly the most explosive way it could.

    Fuck marvel. This movie sucks. I can’t imagine what could have been if Edgar Wright was brought on like planned.

    Edgar Wright is possibly the single most innovative director of our time. Scott Pilgrim has so many subtle nuances that you can only pick up on after several rewatches. Great film.

    2001: A Space Odyssey


    Once in a generation, a film has the chance to change everything. When the film came out, computers were rapidly advancing. 2001 showed people what could be. And of course, there’s the incredible soundtrack that is sadly now spoofed into almost oblivion. One of my favorite films. Perfection.
