Edited: these are all still there.

My Summer of Love-A different kind of “love story” that deals as much with class as it does with anything else. A wealthy girl whose family resides in a country mansion hangs out all summer with a poor girl from town. The rich girl’s parents are away for awhile leaving the whole house to these two young ladies. One thing leads to another and they become more than friends. Will it last past the summer? Watch it and see. There is some nudity and there are lesbian love scenes in this one.

The Union: The Business Behind Getting High-A documentary that reveals pot as the top export for the Province of British Columbia. The production of marijuana in this area is so well known the product has been nicknamed “BC Bud”. Eighty percent of the $7 billion worth of pot grown in Canada is exported into the United States. The film maker interviews law enforcement officials, physicians, college professors, politicians, economists, pot growers, pot brokers, pot smugglers in a film that shows why its maker believes cannabis should be legalized. The medical people interviewed in the film express their belief that cannabis has never caused the death of a single human being while tobacco has killed millions. Law enforcement officials give evidence that shows how nearly all of the money being spent by the U.S. government, state and local authorities is being used to slow down the flow of marijuana, not harder, more dangerous drugs. The same law enforcement officials tell us most of the criminals in our prisons are also marijuana related crimes. If you think pot should be legalized already, your feelings for legalization will be stronger. If you watch it and don’t at least wonder if the legalization of pot might be a good thing, you just have your head in the sand.

Gun-Detroit’s newly made, “largest gun runner” Rich, played by 50cent, adds a recently released from prison old friend, played by Val Kilmer, to his crew. Rich has recently taken out his biggest competitor and hooked up with non-stop top grade product that he cultivated through his a lady friend, played by AnnaLynne McCord (Wow!). Paul Calderon and James Remer are the detectives that plan to take them down. Danny Trejo makes an appearance during a sell. Who can pass up 50cent, a better looking version of a younger Sharon Stone and Val Kilmer together shooting it out with Trejo? It was no where near as bad a movie as the critics said it was.

re: Netflix suggestions


This list has better movies in it. All still there.

50 Dead Men Walking-true story that was set in the worst of times during the conflict that went in Northern Ireland. Ben Kingly, Jim Sturgess & Rose McGowan. Kingly at his very best. You will find yourself pulling for Sturgess' character. The IRA figures in this movie make the ones in Sons of Anarchy look tame.

Clay Pigeons-A young, innocent looking Joaquin Phoenix having sex with every good looking girl in a one horse town. It's a murder mystery with Janeane Garofalo playing the investigating FBI agent. Vince Vaughn in a very believable cowboy role. Good if you haven't seen it in a while.

Who'll Stop the Rain-Good ole hippie, drug movie starring Nick Nolte, Tuesday Weld & Michael Moriarty. Great soundtrack pays while Nolte pegs the anti-hero role of his lifetime.

Quid Pro Quo-Nick Stahl as a paraplegic public radio announcer who is trying to cover a story aabut "wannabe paraplegics". Not all of these wbp's are into it for sexual reasons but some seem to be. Weird one that can cause some discomfort, even if you are watching it by yourself.

ETA:

My Name is Nobody (1974) That’s right the old Terrance Hill/Henry Fonda Spaghetti Western. Fonda is Jack Beauregard , the fastest gun in the west and Hill is Nobody, the new kid in the gunfighter game who wants to make a name for himself and send Beauregard out with a bang. This one comes with an Ennio Morricone (The Good the Bad & the Ugly, Once Upon a Time in America, Once Upon a Time in the West, The Untouchables) soundtrack. Beauregard and Nobody are great together in every scene. Lots of humor, a great story and lots of gunfighting in the Old West. Who goes out on top? Why does Nobody always seem to be smiling? What makes Beauregard laugh? Who is the faster gunfighter?

Coastlines (2002) Timothy Olyphant and Josh Brolin star in this crime drama. Olyphant’s character gets an early release from a Florida prison and comes home to collect a large sum of money from his drug dealing partners. The said partners are completely surprised by his arrival, promise to get the money to him ASAP and then start trying to kill him. He ends up staying with his old best buddy Brolin, the local, not so on-the-level (it’s rural Florida after all) sheriff. Brolin’s wife, played by Sara Wynter is also an old friend who starts having relations with TO’s character when Brolin and their two little girls are out of the house (it is rural Florida after all). Does the sheriff protect his old ex-con friend? Does he find out about the hook ups with his wife? It is steamy down there in rural Florida.

Fresh (1994) Clever 12-year-old Fresh (Sean Nelson) runs drugs for local dealers to survive and support himself and his sister in this moving drama. Motherless and living with an alcoholic father (Samuel L. Jackson) who spends his days playing chess in the park, Fresh has to depend on himself. But when he witnesses a murder and finds his life on the line, Fresh develops a plan to survive and bring down the neighborhood dealers. Giancarlo Esposito co-stars.

The Pianist (2002) Famed Polish concert pianist Wladyslaw Szpilman (Adrien Brody, in an Oscar-winning role) struggles to survive the onslaught of Nazi tyranny during World War II in this Roman Polanski-directed drama based on Szpilman's memoirs. In spite of his well-known musical talents, Szpilman spends several years holed up in Warsaw, barely alive and subsisting on scraps, until grace comes in the form of a second chance -- at music, at freedom and at life.

Chinatown (1974) With a suspicious, porcelain-skinned femme fatale (Faye Dunaway) bankrolling his snooping, private eye J.J. Gittes (Jack Nicholson) uncovers intricate dirty dealings in the Los Angeles waterworks and gets his nose slashed for his trouble. Meanwhile, his financier harbors a nasty family secret. Director Roman Polanski reimagines 1930s Los Angeles with an onionlike story that reveals itself one complex layer at a time in this classic neonoir.

Winter's Bone (2010) In this unflinching noir drama, resilient teen Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) goes on the trail of her missing, drug-dealing father when his absence jeopardizes the family's safety. Her deadbeat dad has a key court date pending -- and Ree is determined that he show up.

Snatch (2000)Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro, Guy Ritche While transporting a pinched 84-karat sparkler to his stateside boss, a gangster stops off in London and inadvertently triggers a slew of fateful events that wends through the worlds of bookies, pawnshops, bare-knuckle boxing and swine.

The Devil's Double (2011) Dominic Cooper stars as Uday Hussein -- Saddam Hussein's depraved, decadent elder son -- and as Latif Yahia, the army lieutenant forcibly drafted to be his body double, in this drama based on Yahia's autobiographical novel.
