"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

Movies I'm very excited about!

I feel that many times the film industry goes through a slump. All the movies they make are ridiculous or not at all appealing. However, that fortunately is very rare. There are several movies that have come out and are coming out that I for one cannot wait to see!

500 Days of Summer:


Julie and Julia:


New York, I Love You:


Ponyo:


The Lovely Bones:


District Nine:


The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus:


Where the Wild Things Are:


The Boys are Back:


The Fantastic Mr. Fox:


Alice in Wonderland:


Post Grad:


Bright Star:


Taking Woodstock:


The Princess and the Frog:


All of these movies touch something within me, as cheesy as that sounds. Love, Childhood, Imagination, Terror, Music, Laughter, Connection, Discovery, Purpose, Frustration: the important things which a movie should bring out in you. A movie should, I feel, should make a statement on human life, whether on a grand scale or a minute one.

Of course this can be argued. "Movies are just suppose to put us into a another life, take us out and entertain us." And I definitely agree with that sentiment, what's wrong with learning something as well, or gaining an insight into the world and human behaviour as a whole. I think more and more movies are being made, that while they entertain, also expound on that.

At least I feel the movies above do. Of course I can always be wrong, but I'll wait until the credits roll to make my ultimate judgments.
