Humpday: Lynn Shelton’s buzz-generating, award-winning comedy about two longtime friends who get drunk, come up with the idea to make their own porno for a local contest – and just won’t LET IT GO – even after they sober up. Mark Duplass (Ben) and Joshua Leonard (Andrew) are great in their roles, but my favorite character is definitely Ben’s wife Anna, played by the stunning & hilarious Alycia Denmore. Honest, raw, and so believable it hurts: it’s hard not to love this film.
Star Trek: Sure, there are a few flaws in this glossy JJ Abrams update, but I really loved the twist on the origin of the Enterprise (isn’t it better to see an alternate version of what happened rather than the 1979 movie remade?), and thought they did an almost perfect job casting it. I also appreciate that the plot and action are equally balanced so it leaves you feeling entertained and not overwhelmed in explosionville. Plus, Kirk is hot. So is Spock. So is Uhura – oh hell, everyone is.
Gone with the Wind 70th Anniversary Edition: Plenty of people complain about how this film is overrated and stereotypical, but I LOVE it. This gorgeous Technicolor masterpiece was made in 1939 (!!!) and I don’t care what anyone says; scheming drama queen Scarlett O’Hara and smarmy Rhett Butler’s chemistry is still amazing to watch – and the costumes and sets alone are worth hours of your time. The 70th Anniversary Edition has over 13 hours of extras, art prints, a book, an original program reproduction and more. Available on blu-Ray too!
