8 Movies in 8 Days

Alli and I have seen 8 movies in the last 8 days (love that perk of the job!). We were way behind so some were kinda old. Here’s my ranking of the 8 we’ve seen:

  1. I Origins - Mike Cahill’s excellent follow up to the extremely underrated Another Earth. A very original story about the intersection of Fact and Faith.
  2. Wish I Was Here - Zach Braff’s film that I referenced earlier.
  3. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes - Just a great movie with phenomenal effects.
  4. Begin Again - follow up from the guy who made Once. Great music. Mark Ruffalo plays the disheveled mess really well.
  5. Lucy - dumb fun though it has it’s problems.
  6. Maleficent - good not great.
  7. Sex Tape - I just wanted it to be funnier.
  8. Transformers 4 - way too long and lacking any ounce of humor.

We still have some stuff to see. Cannot wait for Guardians this weekend. What have you seen this summer that you’ve really liked?

I remember when Zach Braff’s GARDEN STATE came out. It was a personal and beautiful movie that I instantly wanted more from him. 

After a long wait for a follow-up, WISH I WAS HERE arrives this weekend in touching and heartfelt fashion. Braff called it “the emotional sequel” to GARDEN STATE and while I understand the comparison, it felt like much more. Mature, funny, sad and true — WISH I WAS HERE was everything I hoped it would be and more.
