Smoke Signals (1998)

I ended up watching this on Friday with my roommates because one of them had just recently read the book or something in one of her classes (I tend to zone out when she talks). I definitely enjoyed the movie and can shamefully admit that I probably would not have seen the movie if it had not been voted on 2/3, and I would have missed out on a genuinely insightful look into a facet of American/ Canadian heritage I'm pretty ignorant of. That's a roundabout way of me saying that it's a film that explores some of the trials and tribulations of modern Indians as well as the more universal feelings of love and hatred one sometimes feels for their family. Definitely worth a look if you want a dramedy that has its heart in the right place and looks into a portion of the North American population that we don't always acknowledge.

I watched that not too long ago myself. I was expecting more of a comedy based on things I'd read about it and was really surprised by how much it impacted me emotionally.

I had no work today due to my car being in the shop so had a lazy day and watch some movies.



Yeah, it took me this log to finally see this one, which is weird because I love Woody Allen. This is in my top three of his besides Sleeper and Deconstructing Harry. The great lines were great and the acting was wonderful. Great little movie.

9/10



Well that was a big pile of average. Ribisi was very good but he didn't save a boring and average script and a non emotional ending. Bleh.

4/10



The Posiden Adventure in a building. I liked it a lot but it was just too long. Can't complain though when you get to see Steve McQueen and Paul Newman together on the same creen.

8/10



Great campy fun. I love bad movies. Great soundtrack too. It's on Netflix Instant.

1/10
8/10 on a bad movie scale

We've been pretty big on movie nights, being poor students, so I'll throw down a handful of the ones we've made it through recently.

Pulp Fiction: I find Tarrantino pretty hit or miss. It's strange, because I love so many of the qualities of his work, but I rarely find that they all come together at once for me. In the case of Pulp Fiction, I was honestly left wanting.

500 Days of Summer: Aw heck, this is just about the indie-pop-est film ever, but I really enjoyed it.

Fracture: Saw this quite some time ago, and for some reason remember it being much longer and more complicated. Ah, growing up.

The Ides of March: Probably need to have a good grasp of American politics to really enjoy this. Spent most of the film predicting an elaborate blackmail conspiracy that never came to fruition. Hmh.

Lars and the Real Girl: Thought this incredibly boring when I was 17, but gave it another go and got a great deal more out of it as an adult. Cute film.

Crazy Stupid Love: I could be gay for Emma Stone. Awkward, funny film.

Drive: While I'm not sure it lived up to the amount of hype it has received, there's still something highly intriguing about this one. I think I liked it.

Stay: Great premise, nice surprise, but some aspects of how they accomplished the conclusion are confusing and pissed me off.

^I think Ryan Gosling is the sort of actor girls like along with guys like Robert Pattinson and Matthew McConaughey.

None of them live up to old school Brad Pitt. I'm not gay, but I'd give it a try with him. Dude, needs to cut his hair and shave that awful goatee he's got now. He looks ****ing homeless.
