MOVIES AND YOU

Two Films, a few thoughts:


LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE:

One of the best films in the last five years. Indie films in the last few years have been notorious for making incredible trailers that are more thought provoking then the actual film (Thumbsucker, Garden State, The Squid and the Whale). These are all bullshit films with amazing trailers. Little Miss Sunshine is the real deal. Not since You Can Count on Me has an indie film slaped me across the face with its brutal honesty, quick witted comedy, and infectious characters that are real from start to end. It all started with the screenplay that is nothing short of amazing. The most amazing aspect of this film is that it not only spoke to a cynical twenty two year old who tries to hate every film he can, but it also moved my mother who deemed it "A really great film." This is my number one film of the year, easy.

SNAKES ON A PLANE:

I don't want to give a review of this film. It's fun. A lot of fun. And shame on you if you haven't seen it...you cost me tons of money for predicting that it would gross 100 million. Only 15 million you pathetic pieces of shit! Let's get this thing back on track, go buy tickets!
