Swingers (1996)
Absolutely loved this movie. The writing, characters and pacing were all spot on. Naturally it quickly became one of my all time favorites, Id definitely recommend it.

Some sh*t in this movie is just nasty, but the dialogue between Randal and Dante is some of the best and funniest Ive seen in a long time.

Daniel Day Lewis took the spotlight as Butcher Bill in this one. Every little nuance is perfectly executed to create a truly despicable character. I also loved the time period and sets. Overall, a bit too long, but still great.

Two of my favorite actors in one of my least favorite movies. This one just didnt click with me. However McQueens incredible portrayal of solitary confinement was both captivating and heart-breaking.

A great return to form for Cruise. Ethan Hunt is back and better than ever... especially during that Dubai tower sequence.

One of the funniest movies Ive seen in a long time. The characters are genuinely hilarious and the plot is as purposely contrived as the teen cast. If you love horror movies, youll love this one.

Cloverfields one of my favorite movies and seeing Abrams doing something similar again WITH Spielberg made me brofist... well my self. Sadly it was a let down. It couldve probably been rated PG and made by Disney with some minor editing. Just meh.

Ok after seeing this I wanted to throw an absolute Rager. Yup with a capital r.

Dont let the media fool you into thinking this is the devils work or something. Its a freakin party movie for high school/college kids. The soundtrack, characters and party itself are all kick ass.

Till the break of dawn.

My buddy bought this for me on DVD expecting it to be a steaming pile, but instead we got a surreal drama about the downfall and addictions of a New Orleans lieutenant. A BAD lieutenant if you will.

Overall. Interesting, at times wtf-worthy, movie.

Saw an early screening at a film festival and loved it. If youre a Birbiglia fan or any fan of confessional comedy, you will too.
