Movie of the Month
MOVIE OF THE MONTH: JUNE
The warriors (1979)
Can't lie, this is one of guilty pleasures. Much like the 1970's, it's the perfect mix of campy, violent, sexist, and liberating. I remember watching this movie non-stop when I was 9 or 10, and to this day if I comes on, I have to watch the whole thing. It also has this weird foundation built on the Greek story "Anabsis"(written in 370 b.c.), and it finds a way to layer in all these strange comic book graphic transitions too. Fucking dope.
Anyways, the Warriors takes place in an exaggerated version of New York in the 70's. The whole city is essentially a warzone, and each neighborhood divided up and governed by different gangs. But each one of the gangs has these wacky-ass outfits & rules.
Oh so you need an example? I thought you'd never ask...
Gang: "The Baseball Furies"
Location: Upper West Side Manhattan
Uniform: Pinstripes, Black hair, & Face Paint
Rules: No talking, just bats.
Warlord/Leader: Thurman, yellow face/black eye
Dude, the amount of detail & random creativity stuffed into this movie makes you feel the strange love that kind of took over when they were filming. I would talk about the plot, but I already described it best. It's essentially some classic Greek gang shit. If you don't like that... you're tweaking. Also, THE SOUNDTRACK IS TOP 2, AND ITS NOT 2.
And Swan is that guy. 10/10. #SohoHiHats4Lyfe.
MOVIE OF THE MONTH: AUGUST
Tenacious D: The pick of destiny (2006)
I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. Your little bitch ass likes 'School of Rock' right? You like stoner classics? You wanna see Dave Grohl as the devil? Then "Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny"is the perfect movie for you. If not, go fuck yourself.
MOVIE OF THE MONTH: SEPTEMBER
Me and my sister Ash got bored one day, and decided to stumble into a movie theater and randomly pick something to watch. This is what we saw, and we were completely unprepared for it. It ended up being one of the most special movie experiences of my life.
I'm debating leaving the trailer here, because its better that you know nothing about this before going in.
MOVIE OF THE MONTH: OCTOBER
THE YOUNG OFFENDERS (2018)
This dumbass movie we used to watch about two dumbass Irish hooligans who steal a couple of bikes and ride off on a quest to find a missing bale of cocaine worth 7,000,000 euros. Based on a true story.
MOVIE OF THE MONTH: NOVEMBER/DECEMBER
This is a cool lil' movie my sister showed me a few months ago, and it's pretty good.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is this chaotic-ass bum, and somehow he ends up taking a little kid under his wing. Everybody else in the movie (except the grandma) is irrelevant, and the two man show is kinda nice. I'm definitely under-selling it, but it's one of my new favorite movies.
