Youth in Revolt (2009)
Michael Cera, Zack Galafianakis
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0403702/

Michael Ceras character as his alter-ego, Francois Dillinger, is absolutely BRILLIANT. Some of the stuff he says when he's acting as Francois Dillinger is like...a young, dorky version of Ben Kinglsey in Sexy Beast

The Prestige, probably one of my top 5 favorite movies ever. Anyone who was interested in magic as a kid will love this. It's essentially Batman vs Wolverine(Christian Bale vs Hugh Jackman) in a quest to sabotage each other as magicians. I think it takes place in the late 1800's in Britain. The whole movie itself is essentially a magic trick, and the twist at the end will have anyone wanting to watch it again instantly.

Mark's character in that movie is hilarious though!

I bought Inglorious Basterds on DVD the other day. That movie is definitely on the level of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction as far as actually being an exceptional Tarentino movie in my opinion. I liked the Kill Bills and the Grindhouse movies because they were very entertaining, but he has not made a movie that has this great of dialogue, story, and directing in a long time. There are a handful of scenes with a great deal of intelligent writing, and a lot more emotions rise to the surface of the viewer than "man that was badass", which pretty much reigned supreme in the newer Tarentino films (although it wasnt underrepresented in the movie by any means). I can't remember a flat character in a movie who has been so compelling as Brad Pitts character because everything around him changes and he is left with a charming sense of stubbornness that pretty much makes the ending somewhat unexpected and leaves the viewer with a sense of badassery to muse at as the credits roll. Every scene in this movie either made me laugh, think about badassery, or just marvel at the writing and execution and pretty much every scene in the movie is purposeful to the movie in its entirety. There were plenty of Tarentino-isms but they weren't always as obvious as they are in the Kill Bill and Grindhouse movies. It was as fun to watch as the first time I watched it.

And I laughed really fucking hard when Brad Pitt spoke Italian in a southern accent.


Also, I just watched 28 days later, and although that isnt quite on the same level, its still a solid movie.

absolutely hilarious and depressing. must-see for any fan of philip seymour hoffman, or awkward comedies like "punch-drunk love."

The Machinist

This is like Memento and Shutter Island rolled into one, in that it combines a clever "inside the human psyche" plot with some interesting twists; if you've read Crime and Punishment, this movie will make sense by the time it ends. I personally found it more "rewarding" as a film than most of Batman's other movies, such as Batman. Much darker, often times painful knowing Christian Bale ate practically nothing for weeks, but definitely worth your time folks.

Heavenly Creatures

easily my favorite Peter Jackson film. its based on the "Parker-Hulme Murder" in which a mother was murdered by her daughter and her daughter's best friend. stars a very young Kate Winslet and Melanie Lynskey(rose from two and a half men). its just horrifying to watch these 2 young girls reach the point where they would actively plan out and execute a murder.
