    Something I love alot is when people recommend you GOOD movies you probably have never heard of and are way better than heavily promoted, Hollywood movies. One movie I HIGHLY recommend is Kid Cannabis on Netflix. If you watch this trailer they pass it on as a "comedy" but there is much more depth into it. It's about a high school droput (Norman) who works these minimun wage jobs to get his family by but befriends someone to smuggle mar1juana from the Canadian border, and later turns out he has profited over 60 million in deals. It has a lot of unknown actors; the most notable Ron Perlman who plays the distributor and John C. McGinley who grows the mar1juana. Hope ya enjoy it!

    If anybody is into Korean movies, you should download an app called dramafever. Saw 'The man from nowhere' on there. Also, it's free.

    That's an awesome movie. The Korean movies I've seen are so original and offbeat, so different from the stale ass movies being made in the US.

    Some recommendations of stuff I've seen lately.

    Better Living Through Chemistry
    Frontera
    Stretch
    Hours

    I enjoyed Goodbye World a lot. But I have a man crush on Adrian Grenier and the soundtrack had a Radical Face song on it, so there's that.

    I'm going to go with a movie probably would never think about: Fireproof. This to me is probably one of the best inspirational/feelgood films ever. I guarantee you are going to cry watching it.

    Not a movie but I've been enjoying the Mark Maron show. If you like Louis CK's show Louie you'll like this one as well.

    I need to finish it then. I started it after a few too many glasses of whiskey and fell asleep 10 minutes in.
