Movies Movies Movies

I am a movie quoter. That means I will quote movies in every day life. I do it all the time most people like my mom will just look at me strangely and say what are you talking about. Sometimes I explain it and sometimes I am like never mind. There are a few people out there that know what I am talking about. I love to watch movies.

I spend a lot of my time watching them I thought I would share with you some of my favorites that are not as well known as others, but are great movies none the less.

Most people I know that have seen Requiem for a Dream do not like it. They say it is depressing well, hello it is supposed to be. It’s about addiction and the down side of it. It talks about other addictions besides drugs. I really think everyone should see that movie that is over 18 since it does have some hard parts to it to swallow. I think that it would make people rethink using drugs and having other addictions as well.

It is definitely not a movie that glamorizes drug use like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas or a Cheech and Chong movie. Both I can’t understand why anyone would sit down and watch. That of course is just my opinion. It starts out in Summer when things are all happy and dreams are big. You know the magic that Summer has. It goes through the Seasons with each getting progressively worse. I will not give anything else away as I believe it is a must see movie even if it is just an Indie Film. There are Four main characters and you follow all 4’s stories about addiction and dreams. It is definitely a favorite of mine. I recommend you should see it. You might even learn something.

Serial Mom is one of the greatest movies EVER. I remember the first time I saw it. It was on USA or TNT when I was over at a friends house spending the night. It was great. Something you got to know about me is I am the biggest scardey cat. I hate scary movies. In fact I get scared really easily. So when I saw this movie I thought it was cool how they make fun of scary serial killer movies by making a happy homemaker as the Serial Killer. It is a funny movie and I love it. Any time I make meatloaf I say Ladies and Gentlemen the perfect Meatloaf as I set it on the stove. Yes I am aware she says that when she serves it. I also learned from Ms. Beverly Sutphin that you can’t wear white shoes after Labor Day. You just can’t! It also stars a very young Jack McCoy as Beverly’s husband Eugene. Yes he makes that same face he does in Law and Order when they read the verdict.

I also love the movie Kalifornia. It is about a writer and his girl friend who decide that he is going to write a book about serial killers by visiting famous murder sites and his girlfriend is a photographer. They meet up with Early and Adele who are hillbillies and Early and Adele are trying to go to California. Early has a really bad temper and well I won’t ruin the rest. It stars David Duchovny and Brad Pitt. Juliette Lewis is also in the movie. It is a great movie that I think didn’t get the recognition that it truly deserves. The only reason I saw it was because it was on a local station back in 2003. I didn’t have cable and so, shows were limited. They would occasionally play a movie on one of the channels on a Sunday afternoon.

Another one of my favorite movies is The Hudsucker Proxy. It stars Tim Robbins and Jennifer Jason Leigh who was amazing in Single White Female btw. Tim Robbins plays a guy named Norville Barnes from Muncie Indiana and he starts working at Hudsucker Industries in the mail room. Mr. Hudsucker jumped out the window and died and now the board needs a nit wit to pretty much ruin the company by becoming the president. Norville is an idea man so, the boards plan doesn’t exactly carry out the way they want it too. Jennifer Jason Leigh plays a reporter named Amy Archer who wants to see Norville Barnes fail. She even goes undercover to get the scoop. It is a fun, light hearted movie. Tim Robbins is an amazing actor with a lot of talent.

So, there you have it folks. Requiem For A Dream, Serial Mom, Kalifornia and The Hudsucker Proxy. Go rent them. They are all great movies. Have you seen any of these? If you have what do you think of them? Also what are some of your favorite unknown movies?
