    It was a fantastic moment, I think, and they didn't shaft the song with a single verse. I do lurv Singles, though.

    Dear Sofia Copola,

    If you are going to continue making movies for 17 year old girls you might want to start pandering to them. The showing of "The Bling Ring" I was at everyone walked away disappointed (little to my surprise), and even my gf who loves your movies thought it was shallow and uninspired. I will give you that you had a couple decent shots (much to my surprise), but that does not make up for a 90 minute movie that felt as if it were 2 hours.

    Love,
    Someone who would rather be watching "Jack"

    Dear Uncleanahole,

    Iíll always live for seventeen as my Father killed me at that age, remember? The longer the film, the longer the seventeen. You mustnít have any idea what it means to lose everything at seventeen and the power to share it back. Now add a soundtrack song, preferably one of my hip ones, and take a shower.

    Forever,

    Sofie

    Yeah, I just watched this and didn't care for it at all.

    I watched Deepa Mehta's Water tonight. It expires on Netflix Instant in a few days, I don't remember how I heard of it in the first place, but it was really good. A story about widows in 1938 India living in a temple, and how religious oppression affects their lives, brainwashes them, etc. A very powerful film, and the cinematography was just gorgeous.

    Check it out if you've got some free time between now and Sunday night, I probably would have never watched it if I had let it expire.

    I loved this movie. The other two in trilogy (Fire and Earth) are supposed to be fantastic as well.

    We're more than halfway through the year and I'm bored, so what the heck. Here are my favorite movies of the year so far.

    1. The Grandmaster
    2. Before Midnight
    3. Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons
    4. Stoker
    5. Trance

    As usual, there are at least a half dozen films I wanted to catch but still haven't that would maybe make this list, but I enjoyed all of the above and am sure at least two of them will make my year end list.

    Edit: My favorite film of 2012, The Hunt, opens next week. Go see it.

    I watched Luis Bunuel's The Exterminating Angel last night. That has got to be the greatest ending to a film I've ever seen. Although I liked it, I wasn't completely enamored with the rest of it, but that ending. Completely blew me away.

    I fucking hated Frances Ha - or at least, the first 20 minutes before I walked out in disgust. Still need to see Before Midnight, and also Laurence Anyways and You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet! - hopefully this week.

    I don't like to make lists until it's time to publish it and leave it alone, but Upstream is definitely the class of 2013 so far, along with Spring Breakers, Mud and To the Wonder. Keeping in mind, of course, that I considered Post Tenebras Lux a 2012 film even though it came out this summer.

    I caught Ben Wheatley's Sightseers On Demand yesterday and found it quite entertaining. I don't want to say too much about what it entails, but if you're looking for a violent dark comedy with style to burn, it's a worthy choice.

    1. Monsters University - Absolute bliss. Smile on my face the entire time. Wrapped up in a world only Pixar can weave. Could never ask for more going to the theater.

    2. Upstream Color - From the cinematography, sound design, and screenplay this movie was an absolute breath of fresh air. A jump forward in film making if I ever saw one in this age. Relentless in its balance of keeping you in the dark but throwing you bits to keep you captivated. Viewed it 5 times now, still as if it was the first time.

    2. Before Midnight - Beautifully painful. The journey goes to its next logical place, for better or worse. Acting and dialogue are as top notch as the other entries in the series.

    3. Stoker - Dripping violent stunning style. Had no expectations of this movie other then my prior exposure to Park Chan-wook's films, and when I left the theater I was frozen and scared. I felt the way I had heard people walking out of Psycho in 1960.

    4. Trance - A unique psychological romp through the british underground. Surprising turns and entertaining filmmaking I expect in every Boyle film. Really good time with this one.

    5. Francis Ha - A lovely little film. Captures the confusion of identity, place, and life importance through fun character interactions. A more down to earth film version of HBO's GIRLS. Have not enjoyed a Baumbach film as much since The Squid and The Whale.

    6. Spring Breakers - What more can be said. A wild ride. Rainbow infused cinematography showing a world completely parallel to any that we see on the day to day. Can not think of a film that shows the dark side of decadence in such an effective manner. DEFINITELY not what it appears on the surface.

    7. This Is The End - An insane comedy that does everything and THEN SOME to be over the top AND actually hits its mark? Had a ton of fun with this one with a bunch of friends. Shockingly good.

    8. Mud - What felt like a fresh approach to the coming of age story. Fantastic child actor performances and easily the best of Matthew McConaughey's career. In a sea of movies where even the "indie flicks" are trying to be bombastic, the pacing and level headed approach of this one really gained a lot of my admiration. Don't skip it!

    9. Much Ado About Nothing - On a whim I checked out a movie I thought I would have zero interest in (or ability to sit through), but Joss Whedon used his stable of actors to their fullest here. Assembling the words of Shakespeare in a fun and manageable setting is a feat on its own, but providing new modern humor and style along the way deserves everyone's attention.

    10. Post Tenebras Lux - The movie that could easily sit at #1 for many reason or be ignored entirely for many reasons. A beautiful sprawl through the fragments of a director's childhood recollections, current life, and what I assume to be religious based fears. Really something else, that I find truly indescribable... for better or worse.

    Honorable Mention:
    Pain & Gain - Fuck it. Saw it on a whim when I was bored one day. Absolute insanity, accomplishes everything a misogynistic pig like Michael Bay could ever want to do within the limits of his career he has created for himself. A stunning wild ride not to be missed. Everything that was pent up by filming CGI robots for the last decade is released in a fury of insanity.

    Would still like to see To The Wonder, just keep missing it and the home video release day could not come quick enough.
