Groundhog Day (1993)

Written by Danny Rubin and directed by Harold Ramis, Groundhog Day explores every possible reaction to this situation, from euphoria to depression to suicide to self-reflection. Bill Murray stars as a weatherman who lives the same day over and over, trapped in a wintry small town called Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day. Eventually, he begins to use his time to win over his pretty producer, Rita (Andie MacDowell), which is not easy since, to her, it all happens in one day. read more...

Upside Down (2013)

The award-winning Argentinean short film director Juan Solanas makes his English-language feature debut with this astounding failure, a movie that will surely wow audiences with its awesome visuals, but will floor them with its unbelievably awful storytelling. The movie begins with our hero (Jim Sturgess) explaining the rules of the universe to us, and then spends the next 98 minutes trying to avoid or ignore those rules. It can make a viewer's head spin trying to ask questions about how and why anything works. read more...

A Matter of Life and Death (1946)

Released in America as Stairway to Heaven, A Matter of Life and Death (1946) is one of the most enchanting movies you'll ever have the pleasure to see. The imagination of the writing/directing/producing team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger -- the men behind such brilliant classics as I Know Where I'm Going! (1945) and The Red Shoes (1948) -- knew no bounds. read more...

Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

Even in the similar Hitch (2005), where a guy with insight into women passed out advice to the hopelessly lost, Hitch (Will Smith) refused to help a guy who just wanted to have sex. His services were only provided for guys who wanted relationships. In Crazy, Stupid, Love., the similarly insightful Jacob (Ryan Gosling) just wants to help a guy get laid. He explains that the war between the sexes is over (it ended the moment women started pole dancing for exercise). A guy that has lost his sense of manhood simply needs to get it back. From there, it's a matter of flattering the girl, dominating her, and showing confidence. It's a short trip to the bedroom after that. read more...

Giorgio Moroder Presents Metropolis (1984)

Fritz Lang's sci-fi epic Metropolis (1927) was not so famous. If I'm not mistaken, it was in the public domain by then, and available on muddy VHS tapes, transferred at a very slow projection speed, making this classic feel like a serious slog. read more...
