I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Netflix Picks of the Week (3-28-2011)

Josh: I'm Still Here - If you're like me, you showed some mild interest in Joaquin Phoenix's degenerative spiral from acting into what can only be described as "hobo rap." That famous Letterman interview proved one of two things: he was either genuinely nuts, or showing Andy Kaufman-like dedication to acting a role that only a select few were in on. Also if you're like me, you didn't bother to see the box office flop mockumentary that the hoax was engineered for. Well, after buckling down and watching I'm Still Here, I have to say I'm impressed. I wouldn't want to ever watch it again, but I'm glad I did. While some of the supporting performances could have been a little more convincing (I'm looking at you, P. Diddy), Phoenix and Casey Affleck artfully put together a picture that starts off seemingly real, and slowly drops more and more hints that it has to be fake, until by the credits and absurd final shot anyone who is remotely paying attention understands exactly what the film is.


Nick: The Princess and the Frog - I had long given up on films made by Disney proper. Studio Ghibli, Pixar, and Dreamworks had collectively taken over the family film scene for me after Mulan (yes, I can be that stereotypical). I had heard The Princess and the Frog had partially redeemed Disney about two years ago, but I was much too occupied with Azumanga Daiyo and Ponyo to care... until now. You could say that Disney took a risk by starring a black "princess" set in the Jazz Age of New Orleans, but what brings this movie to life is the attention to the jazzy, vivid, carefree art and music of the time and place. The love story is a little shlocky, but it wouldn't be Disney otherwise, and there are enough twists and humor in the dialogue to make anyone feel like they're having a jolly good time.



Blake: Party Down - Before watching this now defunct show about a group of go-nowhere caterers had I ever imagined that such a lifestyle could be interesting or enjoyable. Now I'm kind of thinking of getting some headshots and moving to L.A to become the next big undiscovered nobody who works a shitty day job. Whether I'll be the geeky "hard sci-fi" writer, the given up on my dreams bartender who hooks up with the dead end comedian chick, the anal retentive boss or the older woman who leaves halfway through season one to be on Glee remains to be seen. A very dry comedy with the interesting spin of each episode revolving around a different catered event. By far my personal favorite has to be the Steve Guttenberg episode in season two, but you've really got to watch them all in order to get the full effect, so do it. You won't be disappointed. Mad bonus points for having a ton of guest spots by former cast members of The State (which you should also watch)
