This week we have two, count em, two of the best movies of the year so far. These are so good that for the first time, this article almost had a tie for the PICK OF THE WEEK. It literally took almost all night to decide on which one would ge the nod, but in the end I went with:
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
This film is possibly the best to ever come out of the Apatow stable and is the funniest movie of the year, and yet also perhaps the most emotional. I loved it without regret and you should as well.
-Coming up just a bit behind is Iron Man. One of the most fun times at the movies this year was watching Robert Downey Jr. own the role of Tony Stark. If nothing else, pick up the film for his performance.
-Also out this week is Taxi To The Dark Side, a tremendous documentary about abuse in the Middle East, Chapter 27, the flawed story of John Lennon's killer, which has many issues but a good performance by Jared Leto, and the steroid documentary Bigger Stronger Faster, which is fascinating but only ok.
-My vintage pick is in honor of Paul Newman. It is The Hustler, and he just owns the screen opposite Jackie Gleeson. A classic without question.
-What will you be watching this week?
