"Hey Biz, I was out for a bit. What are some of the best movies released on TMU over the last month?"
Why Im glad you asked friend.
Heres a little thread where I will keep a monthly tab on the movies I think stand above the rest. These are the movies I would first recommend to anyone who asks and a list I can use in the future to remember what I think are the best TMU flicks.
You may not agree with my selections, you may think others should be included, but thats why my names on the thread title (well, that and the fact I love seeing my name everywhere; I'm a shill). And here I'm going to be rather picky. I dont forsee more than 3-5 movies making this list per month. My thread, my picks. Still, I welcome your thoughts and comments. Dialogue is good.
Yielded Nature (Live Action) - Live action, post-bomb music video has plenty of haunting visuals and skill that belie the filmmaker's experience and constraints.
The Big Event (MovieStorm) - My favorite Act3Scene24 production to date, with all the things he always does so well, shining brightly here. Snappy dialogue, crisp production, breakneck pacing. Drinkability factor is through the roof. Movie of the Month!
The Nobbit Part 1 (Iclone) - Stoner Hobbit parody rises above the norm thanks to wonderful musical numbers and an attention to detail that will eventually drag you in and give you a contact buzz.
Graphic; A Risky Business (Live Action / MovieStorm) - Its not hard to find similar themes with the current comic/graphic novel feeding frenzy that exists (think Blade/Constantine meets League of Extraordinary Gents to start), but theres no denying the cool visuals that mix machinima sets with live action characters, an interesting two tone filter that grinds everything into black or white, and a pretty fun mix of characters. Very well made.
Ruth (MovieStorm) - Superb ghost story set as a stage production monologue works brilliantly. Subtle and fresh. Kudos for thinking outside the box. Movie of the Month!
