10 Underrated Movies

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

Ever watched a movie that got bad reviews, or didn’t do well at the box office and think to yourself, “Man, this should have been a HIT!!!”?

  1. Unbreakable - it’s a shame that it came after “The 6th Sense”  I was disappointed when I first saw it because I was expecting a big reveal at the end.  The second time I watched it I had a much better appreciation for how good it was.
  2. Stardust -Even though I loved the book, I wasn’t going to give the movie a chance til my sister made me go, and I LOVED IT.  Best fantasy adventure since The Princess Bride
  3. Go - Kind of like Pulp Fiction for a younger generation, this movie had a bunch of characters and a big web of a plot, but it was a fun ride the whole time
  4. Spice World - I admit.  I really enjoyed watching this…
  5. Running Scared - Never heard of it?  Neither did I until I caught this Paul Walker gem on cable, where he plays a low level mob guy who’s supposed to get rid of a gun from a killing and has his son’s best friend steal it.
  6. Gattaca - I don’t remember hearing too much about it when it came out, but this is an excellent sci-fi movie about a genetically inferior man who assumes the identity of another so he can become an astronaut
  7. Contact - One of my favorite movies ever, based on the book by Carl Sagan.  Jodie Foster plays an astronomer who gets a message from outer space, and how that message changes her and the world she lives in.
  8. Office Space - This should be required viewing for anyone who works in an office.
  9. Be Kind Rewind - At first you may think this to be a typical slapstick Jack Black movie, but I feel it was marketed wrong…it’s more of a story of how a inner city community comes together, with some Jack Black slapstick thrown in…
  10. Big Fish - A wonderful, whimsical feast for your eyes and your heart.  It made me cry.

10 Signs that You’re Getting Older

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

Don’t have time today to do a whole list, but here’s some things that come to mind:

  1. I have no idea what “emo” is, nor do I really care
  2. I went to, and LOVED, the NKOTB concert…along with 30,000 other 30+ year-olds.   Geez - do people even know what NKOTB stands for anymore?
  3. I dread going to the mall on weekends, because groups of teenagers hanging out and doing teenager-things really annoy me…and to think, I did the exact same thing
  4. I can watch CNN for more than 15 minutes without falling asleep
  5. Running up and down a flight of stairs totally winds me
  6. I enjoy reading Better Homes and Gardens, and feel like cutting out articles from Parents magazine
  7. Songs on the “oldies” radio station are songs I listened to in high school
