50/50: I liked this movie. I am kind of in love with Joseph Gordon-Levitt anyways, so I'm admittedly biased. But the movie was better than I thought it would be. A good no-brainer.
Three...Extremes: Amazing short films by three of my favorite Asian directors. Dumplings is especially great, and I think he may have actually made a feature length out of it, but I'm not sure. And to be honest, I'm too damn lazy to look it up right now. Okay I lied. I went and looked and he did. You should check that out too.
Divine Trash: A documentary about John Waters and Divine. If you need more explanation than that, you wouldn't like it anways. Also, shame on you.
I Think We're Alone Now: A documentary about two extreme Tiffany fans. Yes, one-hit wonder Tiffany from the 80s. She still has fans. And these two are insane. Watching them is uncomfortable to say the least. I think I hit my friend Matt about 20 times while watching this, because the people made me go, "What the fuck?" so many times. Watch it. You won't regret it.
Chronicle: Very entertaining new sci-fi film about three high school kids who come upon something from space, that gives them special powers. It goes on to show how those powers corrupt and get a little out of control. I really loved this, and am excited to see what is in the future for this new director. I hope he doesn't pull an M Night Shyamalan.
Hick: I really think Chloe Grace Moretz is the new Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver. I loved her in 500 Days of Summer, and Kick Ass. She's a great young actress and I look forward to following her career for many years to come. Also great in this is Blake Lively, whom I would've never guessed would be such a good indie actress. Disturbing, and great film.
Cook County: This movie was recommended by a friend. Second best movie about meth, next to Winter's Bone. What? You don't have a "top ten meth movies of all time" list? Make one.
Permanent Midnight: How had I never seen this? Ben Stiller does a great job in this biopic of a junkie writer. It's pretty realistic about the lengths people will go to to do drugs, and the amount to which they think they're fooling everyone. Great movie.
El Bulli: Cooking in Progress: You would have to LOVE food to watch this. It's about Adrian Ferra's now nonexistent restaurant, El Bulli. It gives you a peek in to the prep of a restaurant that had 2 million people trying to get 80,000 seats every year. He closed down the restaurant 6 months every year just to experiment on new dishes to try and make them perfect. Now THAT'S dedication. He had a lot of detractors for doing a ton of molecular gastronomy. I happen to love it when it's done well. Interesting documentary to be sure.
Lymelife: I liked Hick so much I watched this the same day. Same director. Also, both movies have Alec Baldwin in them, which I thought was strange. He does a great job in both. This movie is OUT THERE in a good way. Great cast, and well written film.
Okay, that's it. I watched a ton of others but I really needed to whittle down so this wasn't the most annoying post of all time. I wouldn't want it to compete with all of my other posts that are the most annoyings posts of all time.
Happy picture of the day: I totally forgot to post this on Cinco de Mayo. It's a yearly tradition. So I'm going to go ahead and do it late this year.
