“Dear Zachary: A Letter to His Son about His Father” is a documentary about Andrew Bagby, a man whose life was tragically cut short when he was 28. This film follows lifelong friend of Andrew’s, Kurt Kuenne, as he travels around the world to interview all of Andrew’s friends and family and gather their memories of him. Without going into too much detail, this movie gets very sad very quickly. But, it is still a fantastic documentary and definitely worth a watch. Just make sure you have a box of tissues nearby.

“Almost Famous” is Cameron Crowe’s homage to his brief time as a wannabe journalist for Rolling Stone in the 1970’s. As a fifteen year old with ambition and an unhinged love for music, William (Patrick Fugit) is given the opportunity to interview rising band, Still Water. At their show, he befriends the legendary Penny Lane (Kate Hudson) who immediately takes him under her staple-shaggy-coat-laden wing. Slightly in love and taken with the world of 1973 rock music, he follows the band on the road, itching for a story that’ll legitimize him as a writer. The adventure through “Midwest rock meccas,” soundtracked to classic, psychedelic rock music of the 70’s, is a heartwarming coming-of-age cult classic.

“No Country For Old Men”, is the Best Picture winner from the 2008 Academy Awards. Written and directed from all star directors, Joel and Ethan Coen, this movie is an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s novel of the same name. It is about a man (Josh Brolin) who finds a briefcase filled with money. The briefcase’s owner, Anton Chiugah (Jaiver Bardem) and feared hitman subsequently hunts Brolin down to retrive what is his. A thrilling cat and mouse game ensues as Bardem does whatever he can to get his money back. Superb acting and amazing writing, this film is a tense, action packed thriller that is a must see for a fan of the Coen brothers and/or movie fans in general.

Cult classic and childhood favorite, “Good Burger”, stars Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell of “Kenan and Kel” fame. The movie is about Dexter Reed (Thompson) having to get a job at the local burger joint after he crashes into another car and has to pay for the damages. He then befriends fellow employee, Ed (Mitchell). Reed discovers that Ed was the reason he crashed his car in the first place. Because of this, Reed bamboozles Ed into signing a contract whereby 80% of Ed’s pay is given to Reed. Reed’s troubles worsen after a hugely sucessful burger chain opens up across the street. This movie is fun to throw on when you’re feeling nostalgic and in the mood for a few laughs.
