I’m preeeeetty sure this is what the movie Nebraska is about.
Also, I found out that “drunk dad” is apparently a frequently used tag in my posts.
Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope, or And I would have gotten away with it if not for my constant, smarmy insinuations about having killed that dude.
My very important top movies of 2013:
I could only afford to to go to the movies and have the time to do it like 4-5 times. Actually the only new release I distinctly paying to go see was Blue Jasmine. That movie was pretty good.
I think I still owe someone ten bucks for taking me to see Pacific Rim. That was pretty cool, other than it being in IMAX 3D and being so close to the screen I couldn’t actually see the movie. The World’s End was cool, but I think I also owe someone money for that one. Oh, and Gravity. Gravity was pretty cool, but I fell asleep for like a minute in the part in the Russian space pod.
I saw an old repertory screening of Freaked by Alex Winter, with him in the audience, and that was kinda cool. I spent the last $10 in my bank account to do that.
Oh, and I saw an incredibly rare and unreleased documentary about Big Foots from the 1970s, but I can’t remember what it was called, and that was like $3. Same with Gone With The Pope, which was pretty alright.
Oh, and I think I went to see a screening of The Dark Crystal on Easter morning, after I got locked out of the place I was staying at the time. That was cool.
And I got to go to a repertory screening of The Adventures of Baron Munchausen, and I tried to convince a bunch of people to come with me, since it’s one of my favorite movies, and only two people showed up. And they got into an argument and one of them left. And then I ended up crying a bunch, but that’s what I usually do when I watch that movie.
Oh, and Time Bandits, I saw Time Bandits too.
Oh. I saw Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa. It was pretty funny, but I don’t think it’s been released in the United States, so be quiet about that one.
OH. I also saw The Act Of Killing, which was a beautiful, mesmerizing and absolutely gut wrenching film, which I would strongly recommend anyone else to go see, but I’m not sure I can watch it again any time soon.
I also thought Lords of Salem was pretty cool, and it kinda reminded me a little bit, tonally and in terms of pacing, of AntiChrist, except that it’s a way better, more inventive, and less pompous movie than AntiChrist.
BEST MOVIE OF 2013
Blind Fury, 1989, Phillip Noyce.
My friend Danny rented it on DVD and we hung out at his place and watched it.
