    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.

    I know someone who worked on it. She said it's awful. Which is a shame, the original is one of my all-time favorites.

    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.

    World 8 was just so ridiculous. I could get probably 5-6 levels through, but I think there was a gigantic one with tons of ghosts that I could never conquer.
