Richard Buckner is one AMAZING DUDE

 

David Eugene Edwards is a God-Fearin God among men.  16 Horsepower is wonderful.

 

I stumbled upon this fellow William Elliot Whitmore a day or two ago, pretty cool stuff.

 

And for a good time watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmfq0eGaHBY



50 Ways to Leave Your Lover

I write to you as the credits are still rolling for a reason.

This movie came up from behind and nipped me in the ass, it was great and very funny.

 

This directorial debut from Jordan Hawley starring Paul Schneider perfectly reflects the main characters attitude.  The whole time you are on the edge of your seat thinking, this is going to suck, something will go terribly wrong, but thankfully IT DOES NOT.  This charming romantic comedy takes the similar rode that most romance comedies take, but something is different.  Although the music and the cinematography leave you asking for a bit more, wonderful performances across the board, particularly on Schneiders part, really strengthen the film to make it a wonderful experience.  Very slight but comfortable twists keep you interested and there are these wonderful moments of comedy that really come up and suprise you. 

However flawed and seemingly shitty this film may appear, give it a chance, it’s sweet, funny, well written, and most of all well acted.  I expected less and was pleasantly suprised, one of my favorite emotions.

(also for a good suprise watch the Kelsey Grammar produced film The Good Humor Man)

**** (on a scale of 5 including half stars)

I am beginning to adapt a screenplay for a short film based off of the wonderful song Blue Sunday by Tom Petty, featured on the album Last DJ.   So if you happen to stumble across the song and have any wonderful thought, just let me hear them.  Also, very soon, I will be writing film reviews and begin this as soon as I finish my last summer project.  So I will leave you with a very cool poem-photo from W.C.
