RUSHMORE (dir: Wes Anderson, R) - Thom says, "Now I never went to a private school or had any dominant amount of money nor can I really relate to any of Wes Andersons films in any vital way, but I love this movie. I watched it for the first time a couple days ago and it is just super-cool. Its really clever and quirky and understated kind of like a Wes Anderson film. I guess he really had it going for him in the beginning with BOTTLE ROCKET and then RUSHMORE. Maybe the disappointment after these two gems was why collaborator Owen Wilson tried to kill himself. I probably would if I woke up and realized: a) my best work was ten or more years ago and b) I was Owen Wilson."
THE BIRD PEOPLE IN CHINA (dir: Takashi Miike, Not Rated) - Bart says, "You can always count on any given Miike film to be a shocking and outrageous good time, but until I saw this feature from fairly early in his prolific career, I thought AUDITION was the only film of his that could be considered truly great. While there's a smattering of off-color humor and yakuza violence so that you don't totally forget you're watching movie by the director of ICHI THE KILLER, mostly what you get is a gentle, touching story of a couple of cityfolk from Japan who slowly fall in love with the traditional ways of rural China. It's kind of like an East Asian LOCAL HERO or a reverse AGUIRRE, WRATH OF GOD/APOCALYPSE NOW where Man's Heart of Darkness resides in the ugly 'civilized' world of Miike's other films and it takes a crazy river trip into a simple primeval human existence to escape it." 
HOPE FLOATS (dir: Forest Whitaker, PG-13) Greg says, "Like most normal people, I hate Sandra Bullock and anything resembling a romantic comedy. However, this little charmer about a woman who heads home to her Mothers expansive Southern estate to recuperate after learning shes being cheated on (on national TV) has some serious healing properties. If you need cheering up, throw it on and let Sandy melt away your bad vibes. (Im totes serious.)"
