In: Matt, Movies
april-2014-must-see-movies

So I’m still recovering from the AMAZING-ness of the Veronica Mars Movie. I hope all the Marshmallows who read the site got the chance to see it. If you didn’t go rent/buy it on iTunes it was such a great tribute to a fantastic show.

Anyways, another month mean more movies and April is a mixed bag. Horror, thriller, action, drama and a rom-com take your pick!

Check out my picks for must-see movies this month…

March 2014: Five Must-See Movies

In: Matt, Movies
march-2014-movie-preview

I’m not going to lie… I didn’t see any movies last month. Not even the ones on my list. Whether that is because of a busy work/school/play schedule or because last month really just didn’t have anything going for it… I’m not sure.

Either way, March promises to be an exciting month in film with at least 3 movies I am DYING to see, and a couple others that look very promising. Okay really all I care about this month is VERONICA MARS but I’ll pretend the other 4 come close. (hint: they don’t)

Check out my picks for must see movies this month!

There are two things I never feel guilty spending money on: local businesses and great underwear. Move over Andrew Christian there’s a new player in town! Introducing Dirt Squirrel, a Vancouver based company that promises to “protect your nuts” with their line of high-end men’s underwear.

Two adorable boys, Wade Hopwo and Daniel Lypchuk, who were both born and raised in the Vancouver area, started the company. After graduating from university, the boys decided to take a casual idea and make it a reality and Dirt Squirrel was born.

Their first line features three sexy styles in a variety of colors, a fierce galaxy print, and they’ve got more new releases on the way. Check out the pictures from their first line, which feature the holy trinity: food, booze, and boys!

february-2014-must-see-movies

January is over. O-V-E-R. That means it is Black History Month, February, Month number 2, or the shortest month. By no means is it the month that involves my least favorite “Holiday”. Yes, okay, Valentine’s Day is also this month, which means we have a bevy of romantic films in the mix.

While not overly bitter about celebrating Singles Awareness Day (S.A.D.), I am accepting date offers for anyone looking to knock back a few (7) bottles of wine on V-Day. Just saying. Anyways… Check out my picks for must-see movies this month below.

Movie Review: Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit

In: Matt, Movies

Admittedly, I’m not a huge fan of action/spy movies. I love the James Bond series but that’s where my interest usually stops. That being said, my expectations were far surpassed by Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit this week.

The film, which is based on Tom Clancy’s character, but no particular book, follows a young Jack Ryan (Chris Pine) as he joins the U.S. Marines to support his country after 9/11, and incurs life-threatening injuries in a helicopter crash. While recuperating at an army rehab facility, he meets Dr. Cathy Muller (Keira Knightley). Ten years later, the two are dating and Ryan is working as an undercover analyst for the CIA. When he discovers what he believes to be evidence that the Russians are planning a massive attack on the U.S. that would severely cripple the economy as well as endanger the lives of thousands of people, he is sent to Moscow on a special assignment to investigate. Ryan’s investigation is short lived though, as soon after arriving in Moscow, there is an attempt to assassinate him. This forces Ryan to switch gears from analyst to full blown spy.

Movie Review: Her

In: Matt, Movies
her-movie-review

Spike Jonze’s Her is easily one of the best films I’ve seen in a long time. It is a beautifully stylized futuristic love story about a man who falls in love with the operating system of his computer. I use the term futuristic loosely as the film’s setting is not that far off from our own. There are some technological advances and some adorable fashion throwbacks, which include high-waisted pants (yes!), but this world is very much just around the corner from today.

Joaquin Phoenix plays the man, Theodore Twombly, who works for a company that makes handwritten letters for people, the first sign this society has a problem with communication and human connection. Scarlett Johansson voices the woman, Samantha, who is actually genderless but I will continue to use female pronouns for the sake of this review. Samantha is an AI based operating system with the ability to learn and grow and we see her do just that throughout the course of the film.

january-2014-must-see-movies

Happy 2014 you guys! While January is typically reserved for some of the worst films of the year (blame it on awards season), this year seems to have quite a few that might actually turn out okay.

There are still a few December releases that I need to see so this should be a busy month of movie watching. My new years resolution is to keep maintain a better schedule. Check out my picks for must see movies this month below…

Dallas Buyers Club Soundtrack Review

In: Matt, Music
dallas-buyers-club-soundtrack

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good mix-tape. There’s something really special when you’re able to get an eclectic mix of songs from different artists together on one album or playlist in a way where all the tracks compliment each other perfectly. I’m probably one of the only people I know still burning CDs for my car. Having said that, I think it’s even better when a film releases a mix-tape style soundtrack with songs from and inspired by the movie so you can emotionally connect the music in a totally different way.

I recently stumbled upon the Dallas Buyers Club Soundtrack, which was released a couple months ago. If you haven’t seen Dallas Buyers Club yet, you probably should. The AIDS drama features a wicked cast including Matthew McConaughey (who lost a TON of weight for his leading role), Jennifer Garner, and Jared Leto who makes an amazing drag queen. The soundtrack is just as good, if not better than the movie and features a fantastic mix of newer and older artists, covers, remixes, and acoustics.
