    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.

    Did your friend provide details or should I even ask? The fact that it's Spike Lee and he's remaking such a recent movie, just...

    Just a couple of notes... I caught The Bling Ring a couple weeks back. It's surprisingly kinetic for a Sofia Coppola film, and while enjoyable at times, I feel it's ultimately as shallow as most of its characters.

    I caught a Nic Cage film marathon here last weekend, and I saw Vampire's Kiss for the first time. Holy fucking shit... I can't believe this movie wasn't part of my film lexicon until now. All the cliches about Nic Cage being batshit insane are on full display here. Unbelievable.

    Also... ATTENTION SEATTLE CINEPHILES: Post Tenebras Lux is finally making its premiere here on July 26 at Northwest Film Forum. I plan to be there wide-eyed and ready to be floored.

    Yeah. I didn't want them to re-make Oldboy, but I was optimistic with Spike Lee & Josh Brolin. That poster changed my mind pretty fast. Fucking ridiculous!

    Movies I've seen recently:

    Before Sunrise-while not as good as the first 2 of the trilogy, the film still is a memorable piece to the trilogy. Great acting and storyline... B+

    This is the End-weird and hilarious, I encourage Seth Rogan fans to highly go see this far out movie. And yeah, its actually about the apocalypse, not a joke playing on the actors (Which I thought it was) A-

    World War Z-
    I Finally saw World War Z this past weekend. Being a zombie fan, and have read Max Brooks, the film is so different from its source material its a wonder how it's based on it at all. Despite from that, the movie benefits from its creativity, and Brad Pitt delivers a memorable performance as a United Nations specialists. WWZ is no where near as good as classic zombie films like Shaun of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, or Return of the Dead, but its a worthwhile summer block buster to see. The movie also benefits from being non stop action and great scenes, including the one on the airplane when zombies attack.

    Xan I've had a boner since 'Mo (thats what those closest to del Toro call him) called me in 2011 and told me this movie had been greenlit and was going into pre-production. Basically a full year before you got your boner.
