Movie Monday

It had been a few weeks since I had sat down to watch a movie so the following reccommendations may be slightly hindered by the movie drought...but don't let this stop you from watching them. So enjoyable!

You Again
Betty White. The girl from Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Jamie Lee Curtis. Sigourney Weaver. Girl cast about high school nemesis. It was not your typical chick flick romp. It was more along the lines of a Freaky Friday meets Mean Girls (minus Lindsey Lohan). There were multiple ha-ha moments (JLC's in particular) and the lines between "villain" and "heroine" are blurred enough to keep you from guessing what's really going to happen. Queue it up!

It's Kind of a Funny Story
Funny, touching, sad, amazing soundtrack...this is not a movie I was fully on board with upon renting but the forlorn 16 year old boy endears himself with his hilarious daydreams and charming relationships with his fellow crazies at the psych ward. There's a song sequence with the psychies rocking out to Bowie's Pressure that I promise is unforgettable- especially because of Zach Galifianakis' glittery beard. If the love story between the 2 teenagers isn't enough: watch it for the soundtrack alone (courtesy of Broken Social Scene). 

Highlight song (for me) a cover of the Pixie's Where is My Mind. 

So, do you have any movie recommendations? These were hard to come across while strolling Blockbuster. It'd be nice to have a list for next time I go...
