Watched Troll 2 again tonight… #troll2 #hospitality #vegetarian #goblin
Day 10 of 500 movies Ghost World 2000 Written by Daniel Clowes Directed by Terry Zwigoff
IMDB: Enid and Rebecca are social outsiders who, after graduating from high school, play a mean prank on a middle-aged geek.
Adapted from the comic book, Thora Birch and Scarlett Johanson bring the characters of Enid and Rebecca to life. The witty banter and interesting fashion choices will keep you interested as you follow Enid and Rebecca through their summer.
Day 9 of 500 movies Heathers 1988 Directed by Michael Lehmann Written by Daniel Waters
IMDB: A girl who half-heartedly tries to be part of the “in crowd” of her school meets a rebel who teaches her a more devious way to play social politics.
One of my favorite movies that I never get tired of ‘Heathers’ always makes me laugh. Christian Slater is as sexy and creepy as ever and Winona Ryder makes an excellent Bonnie to his Clyde. This movie will have you quoting lines even after the credits role.
Day 8 of 500 movies
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon 2006 Directed by Scott Glosserman Written by Scott Glosserman and David J. Stieve
IMDB: The next great psycho horror slasher has given a documentary crew exclusive access to his life as he plans his reign of terror over the sleepy town of Glen Echo, all the while deconstructing the conventions and archetypes of the horror genre for them.
If you love horror movies you must see this one! In a world where Jason, Freddy, and Michael are all real, one wannabe serial killer reeks havoc in his home town. Nathan Baesel is terrifying and incredibly charming. You won’t feel bad about rooting for the killer in this film.
Day 7 of 500 movies: The Nines 2007 Written and directed by John August
IMDB: A troubled actor, a television show runner, and an acclaimed video game designer find their lives intertwining in mysterious and unsettling ways.
I really enjoyed this movie. Ryan Reynolds gives an amazing performance with all 3 characters he portrays. Melissa McCarthy also does an amazing job as a friend, love interest and publicist. At first I was a bit confused by this movie because I didn’t know where it was going to end up. I was surprised by the end result. It’s worth checking out.
Day 6 of 500 movies: Night of the Comet 1984 Written and Directed by Thom E. Eberhardt
IMDB: A comet wipes out most of life on Earth, leaving two Valley Girls to fight the evil types who survive.
This movie is in all of my cult books. It is by far one of the campiest zombie movies I’ve seen from the 80’s. Filled with typical valley girl slang and hopping tunes, it’s a very fun movie to watch.
Day 5 of 500 movies: Lucky 2011 Written by Kent Sublette Directed by Gil Cates Jr
IMDB: A wannabe serial killer wins the lottery and pursues his lifelong crush.
Colin Hanks is adorable and awkward in this movie. Ari Graynor is just as equally adorable! This movie shows that money isn’t always everything and even the most misguided can fall in love. Even if their spouse is a serial killer. Very witty writing and Graynor’s mental breakdowns puts a smile on my face with every nervous laugh.
Day 4 of 500 Movies:
Spork 2011 written and directed by J.B. Ghuman Jr.
IMDB: A colorful and foul-mouthed feature musical comedy.A film about a frizzy-haired, pink-cheeked outcast named Spork who is trying to navigate her way through the annals of junior high. When a school dance show provides a chance for Spork to show up a mean girls gang, her trailer-park neighbor steps up to coach her with some “booty-poppin” moves
I instantly fell in love with this quirky, bright independent film. Not only is this movie filled with old school 90’s hip hop to make your ass shake but the writing puts a smile on your face. This is definitely a feel good movie. It’s the ultimate ‘cheer for the underdog’ kind of film.
