The Heathers:: The Story About A Generation No One Heard Until They Went Out With A Bang

Wow, let me just start of by saying this movie is is dark. A dark comedy, yes, but still pretty fucking dark and I can't believe I first watched this when I was probably 12 or 13 (thank god my parents installed good morals and high self worth in me at a young age). So for this week's throwback thursday video I'm discussing The Heathers.

Forrest Gump: One of the Greatest Tales of American History Ever Told

I remember it so clearly, as if it were yesterday.  Standing up at my desk, red in the face, gasping for breaths between my my sentences as I couldn't get my points out fast enough.  I was in my film and politics class at Pitt and arguing as to why Forrest Gump is one of the best political films ever made.

You could say I was pretty spunky and opinionated in College.  I at times naively and blindly defended my side of arguments in those days. But after much thought this is one belief I still hold true. Robert Zemeckis genius directing and Tom Hanks portrayal of this 'dumb' and simple man brings Winston Groom's book to life and makes for one of the most entertaining ways to take a look at our Nations sordid past.

You Don't Have a Clue About Clueless

Alright guys and gals, I'm bringing back 'throwback thursday' with bang! First, I did it with some classic music videos feat. (tlc, lfo, backstreet, 'Nsync) which you can search for on the site. But with my love of movies I thought it'd be a blast to do the same thing with movie trailers. So I'm kicking it off with Clueless.  And if you think I'm just going to tell you the all same stuff you've already heard before about the film 'as if'!
