Trash Culture

Well, I’ve put it off far too long to get this article put together. There are still movies I want to see from 2017 but at this point, there is too much good stuff in 2018 to see so I don’t see myself catching up. So while imperfect, I think I’ve come up with a strong list of best movies for the year and I strongly encourage you to see these films if you haven’t already. Most should be easy enough to find at home now on some sort of streaming device.

Super effective thriller, with real emotion, real impact. No underlying message about religion or anything like that. just a family trying to survive. It's going to be a very familiar environment to anyone that consumes modern media. There will be wisps of living in the world of The Walking Dead and such. I'm sure at more than one point, you will be reminded of Signs with Mel Gibson, but mostly you'll be wondering why they cast that girl as the daughter when she looks nothing like either parent. One thing I'm...

Looking forward to a nice two player night with my favourite gaming crony, Graham. I've packed beers, printed play aids, read the rules - twice - and I'm about to leave. The phone rings. "Matt? It's Graham. I've got a house full of teenagers. Bring some multi-player games. And some more beer." I'm in a rush, so I grab the first thing in front of me. It's Colt Express. I got it on a whim to play with my daughter. I mean: it's cheap, it's got a cool 3d train and it...

This is one of those really good movies that's going to be very tough to recommend since so many people, i think, would have a hard time with it. It's basically about an Israeli family who lose their son, while serving in the military. It takes you to all sorts of places and you can bet your house that you will not be able to predict what will happen. There are some comedic elements, but it mostly works as a pretty heavy drama. The acting is really strong which can be...
Acid Hot

We'd dropped the acid just before sunset on a day so hot you could smell the tar cooking on the roads. We climbed a hill as we came up and spent the night on a golf course, pretending to play as the shapes and sounds shifted and blurred around us. Then, tired but happy, we lay and let the warm grass tickle our necks as we watched too many stars spinning overhead, twinkling in too many colours. In the hard dawn of another breaking day, we said our goodbyes and drifted off, the hard...
