Just finished watching “AMERICAN MOVIE” and it was very good. It is about a filmmaker named Mark and his goal is to finish his movie.
“I am a failure.” is the opening line of the movie and our main guy is Mark. He has big dreams to make his films and he does not want to “be a nothing.” I think he earns his money as a newspaper delivery guy.
The film is really entertaining and as it progresses you really are cheering for Mark to finish his movie and it is kind of amazing how he has so much support from the people in town.
The dialogue is funny and you really can’t make it up. It really shows all of the difficulties involved in making a short low budget film.
It is called “American Movie” from 1999. It is definitely worth a watch if you enjoy learning about films and you like underdogs!
(His horror movie itself is not super amazing but this documentary is really good)

An interesting film. It was well shot (cinematography). The plot is not overly complicated but the movie does have twists and turns. The film has an interesting tone as well, definitely a “black comedy” as well as a drama. The movie is an original idea and it is an entertaining film. I don’t know if it is one of the BEST movies of 2017, but it was definitely a good movie and I would be willing to watch it a second time.
You might even like this film if you are from Missouri (or maybe maybe even North Carolina)

A unique and interesting girl version of “8 mile.” There are definite similarities to 8 Mile (with Eminem) but the film is still unique and stands on its own. It’s still a rap coming-of-age movie but with a girl as the main lead.
The film was entertaining all throughout. The films has some twists and turns that will keep you guessing. In some parts it is kind of formulaic but unless you are a complete movie snob then you won’t be bothered. The lead girl definitely is the standout. The supporting actors are also good.
The real joys in the film come from the rapping scenes because you are rooting for the main character so much (similar to 8 Mile).
Also, I would say the film is very strong in the first hour with a lot happening and with the scenes moving quickly.
If you like movies that have music in them and you like coming-of-age movies then you’ll definitely like Pattie Cake$.
DJ ROBO BISCUIT gives it a 7 out of 10.

“Obvious Child” and “Landline” are both interesting human films starring Jenny Slate. They both have to do with an adult woman trying to deal with real life adult problems. Obvious Child is funnier than Landline. Landline is more like a drama and Obvious Child is a romantic comedy. Both films are sincere and earnest. I recommend Obvious Child over Landline as it is more entertaining. BUT, if you like films that are about people trying to deal with their problems and you kind of like hipster-y women then Landline might be more entertaining.
Some have called Landline “Blase” whatever that means! The two films are well-directed and are interesting enough to have you watch all the way through and you also don’t really know what it going to happen!
If you are a fan of Jenny Slate and you just wish you could see her in the movies then these are two very entertaining films.

Brigsby Bear is a unique and one of a kind film. I thought I was going to be able to guess the movie based on the trailer but I was totally wrong.
The movie is really interesting and heart-warming. I give it 2 thumbs up. It is a comedy in some ways but it truly is more of a thoughtful drama.
If you have a taste for animated movies or kids tv from the 80s then you’ll like this film.
Kyle Mooney was great. It is good to see new people making films.
If you like Indie movies or movies that are a little bit different then I do recommend Brigsby Bear.

An interesting and somewhat bleak tale of life on the streets.
This is about young people who live on the streets and are “Streetwise.”
Dumpster diving, stealing, begging, and prostitution.
See the movie below, it is on YouTube:
If you watch it and you liked it then check out the wikipedia page for more information.
This film was excellent. It is similar to the films of Miyazaki. This comes from the creator of Digimon so the animation will be similar.
This movie is good for kids and adults. The movie is NOT cliche. It has maybe a twist … maybe a turn or two. I enjoyed it for the master and apprentice aspect in some ways similar to The Karate Kid.
This film is entertaining and has a lot of heart. On my 10 point scale I give it an 8 out of 10.
Warning: It does have violence and some blood (but not much).
Joy was an excellent film.
What it truly does highlight is how the VERY ambitious JOY must struggle against her own family and her own “circle” in order to become successful.
Joy is almost a representation of ATLAS SHRUGGED by Ayn Rand. They key character – Joy – is a powerhouse. Her mind is full of ideas and entrepreneurial spirit. However, she has been burdened with a family of parasites who drain her.
As the movie is occurring, one truly does fell sympathy and support for JOY because there are so many forces working against her and she can not seem to get a positive break!
I would recommend the movie to anyone who has ever had an idea about making a business or people who like to support others who are in a troubling situation.
Thank you. STAY FLUFFY

Gotta Say, Short Term 12 was a great movie. It had MAJOR FEELS! I did not cry but I came close (to crying).
The movie is about life at a facility for teenagers where they live there short term; like 5 weeks up to 3 years. It is supposed to be a “safe environment” where they can live and work through their problems. The movie is basically told through the lens of the main character played by Brie Larson. Her eyes can kill.
If you are the kind of person who feels empathy (and sympathy) for others, then this movie is going to hit you in the heart. The film just works on lots of different levels.
Also, if you consider yourself to be someone who “likes GOOD movies” then I have to give this movie a DOUBLE RECOMMENDATION because of how good it is. It is not a comedy but it does have some humor.
As somebody who has worked with kids and teenagers, I can relate.
BIG RECOMMENDATION from DJ ROBO BISCUIT.

As a movie, Donnie Darko has a feeling that the main character is moving towards Doom.
You (as the viewer) constantly feel within the film that things are not as they are supposed to be and there is going to be some form of strange occurence
The work is no doubt a Masterpiece by creator Richard Kelly
DJ ROBO BISCUIT does not want to spoil the film
BUT, the film DOES involve a man-size Bunny Rabbit and the film does involve Time Travel
After watching, the movie really stays with you
If you are a Thinker or a Questioner or somebody who wonders “Why?” then I think you will be thoroughly enthralled upon going online and reading a “Donnie Darko explained” Post
Job well done by Director Richard Kelly
