Watched Mulholland Drive (2001) last night with some friends. It’s such a fantastic film that I both love it and hate it. There’s so much going on and you’re left so unsatisfied! We spent over an hour discussing the film and trying to figure out what the hell we just watched. It was all worth it because after this and Blue Velvet (1986), I have a deep appreciation for David Lynch films. They’re truly incredible.

I finally watched There Will Be Blood and I have a whole new respect for Daniel Day-Lewis. Holy wow what an incredible actor. Everyone in this movie is solid, but this man blew me away. This isn’t a movie I would normally choose to watch, but it’s quickly becoming a personal favorite as is Daniel Day-Lewis. He deserves every best actor Oscar that he has received and deserves just so much more. Forever amazed by this man.

Blade Runner (1982) - Ridley Scott


Watched this today! There’s something about 1980’s sci-fi that makes really interesting movies, especially when it’s done by someone like Ridley Scott. I’m not one that usually enjoys sci-fi flicks, but this was fun to watch and reminded me a lot of Alien... well cinematically at least, and the predatory chase scenes. Harrison Ford was brilliant as always and has an upside-down kiss that puts Spiderman to shame. Great acting all around and a cinematic masterpiece, especially for it only being 1982. If you’re into sci-fi, robots, or Harrison Ford, check it out.

Jim Jarmusch and Forest Whitaker on the set of Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai

Watched this for the second time today. Incredible film. Watch in parallel with Dead Man and get ready for your mind to be blown. Jarmusch is just a genius. Fantastic. Not everyone’s cup of tea, but stick it out and enjoy a gangster movie about old has-been Italian mobsters and a big black man who believes himself to be a samurai.

Watched Dead Man for film this week. Incredible film. Johnny Depp was spectacular and maybe one of his best roles ever. Check it out. Jarmusch is a genius.

Just finished Gambit. This movie got horrible reviews but I really enjoyed it and thought it was pretty funny! Colin Firth brought a nice dry humor and Cameron Diaz was the stereotypical bubbly Texan that gets associated with us Americans. Alan was just incredible. Hilariously vulgar in the beginning and quite the charmer throughout and a closet nudist. How could I not love it? A campy flick that I thoroughly enjoyed.

“I will be the only angel you need. You will leave life even more beautiful than you entered it. Heaven will take you back, look at you and say: Only one thing can make a soul complete. And that thing is love.” 
The Reader (2008)

Watched The Reader last night and absolutely loved it. I bawled my eyes out. All the actors were phenomenal and the story ripped my heart out. Really, a beautiful film.

Blue Velvet (1986)- David Lynch

Just watched this and wow, that was some fucked up shit. A really captivating film but definitely hard to watch. Kyle MacLachlan was great as was Laura Dern. Dennis Hopper and Isabella Rossellini were both terrifying. Overall, a good flick for those of you with strong stomachs.

The Five Obstructions (Jørgen Leth and Lars von Trier, 2003)
“How does the perfect human fall? This is how the perfect human falls.”

Watched this for the first time today and have to watch it again later. It’s one of the strangest, yet most interesting films I have ever seen. It’s cinematic therapy for the creative. Just wow. Check it out if you’ve never seen it. It takes some patience, but it’s definitely worth it.

Finally got around to watching Moonrise Kingdom. I absolutely loved it. These two were spectacular. Bruce Willis was the Willis that I know and love. Ed Norton was adorable. The story was just something so pure and sweet with a quirky edge that just made this movie something special. So happy I finally watched it.

Beautiful Creatures (2013)
Costume Designer: Jeffery Kurland
Director: Richard LaGravenese

Just got back from seeing this piece of cinematic gold. Jeremy Irons was just, uh, the whole reason to see the film. Other than him and Emma Thompson, I wouldn’t recommend the film unless you are a 13 year old. The acting was good throughout but the writing and the story in general were just blah.

Hunger (2008)

Just watched this. It was probably one of the most disturbing and hard to watch films I have ever seen. It was incredible and Michael Fassbender is a terrifyingly good actor.

I highly recommend watching the whole film too. The Great Dictator.

Watched this tonight on the big screen. It was incredible. I laughed so hard and loved every minute of Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator (1940).

Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994) - Newell
Finally watched this one as well! I was so in the mood for a good romantic comedy and this nailed it. The story is great and Hugh Grant was just adorable. Great chick flick and was even nominated for an Oscar for Best film!
