The To Do List
3 years ago via Flixster

A similar flavor to "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" but set in the 1990's with the sound track was pulled right from the 90's making me feel right at home. The opening track sets the theme of the movie MUCH better than some of the "posters" and the movie's own website (http://www.todolistmovie.com/) which I would think appeals more to the "8-14 year olds" with its pastels and cartoony appearance, which this movie is DEFINITELY not suitable for.

I can see how "The Hand Job" was the original title, however that's not really a title for a [R]ated film, another good title could be "A Sex Manual for the High School Grad", with that said I did have many laughs at this 'cumming' of age film and its spewing of suggestive dialog.

Typically I add an odd twist to a phrase in the movie however there were so many usable snippets in this film I didn't single out just one, so just be careful who you open the back door for. If you like what's in the trailer there is plenty more in the movie.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

A bit of an odd movie, that I wish I had an introduction to before walking into the theater knowing nothing about it. Typically I prefer the "cold" approach so I judge it solely on the movie itself, however this one caught me off guard.

It's a story told by a six-year old girl that is often referred to in a male tense. She tells the story in a docu-fantasy style with the scattered thought. Deeply sunk in a local culture that appears to thrive in a near-homeless sustainable lifestyle. Folklore and fantasy pops in and out frequently as it would in a child's mind.

"There once was a hushpuppy that lived with her daddy in the bath tub, who stood up to the horn-faced hogs.‚ If there was a moral of the story would be ‚Face your fears and take control of your life and your destiny."

Anyone alive in the 1970's and 1980's will have a flood of flashbacks, as it takes you down music and television's pop-culture Memory Lane. However, make sure you have a raunchy sense of humor and don't mind watching a heaping helping of sex, even without partners. It's pretty typical Adam Sandler, simple minded humor with a slightly serious side that makes you sympathize with him.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World

Inspires one's self to look at their life and all the right and "not so right" decisions we have made. Changing our perspective of what is really important and questioning the loves of your life, whether they be people, places or things along with the reasons you love them. It starts just as most would suspect, however it concludes with a powerful "impact" having us ask the question "Who we are and what is truly important in our lives?"

Moonrise Kingdom

Two unique kids with an extreme non-characteristic adult perspective of living in the quintessential society. A society, which has difficulty seeing outside their isolated boxes of how things are "supposed" to be done. They are misfits of passion pushed to the absurd with a simplistic yet distorted perspective both logically and visually of the world around them. As a viewer we are wearing those glasses. We see how the creativity of the youthful mind is before it becomes pigeonholed into a single way of thinking.
