Mitch's Movie Collection- 2001: Space Odyssey (1968)

2001: Space Odyssey (1968)

Directed by: Stanely Kubrick

Starring: Gary Lockwood, William Sylvester

Rotten Tomatoe Score: 95%

Box Office Gross: $56.9 Million

Mitch Heads: 4 Mitch's

Mitch's Thoughts: One of the most revered films of all time, 2001: Space Odyssey makes me feel dumb every time I see it.  I respect the amazing special effects, the incredible score, and Kubricks overall masterful work behind the chair is undoubted but every time I watch it I hope to be that great film critic and point out all the hidden meanings but instead I come across more like the prehistoric hominids at the beginning of the film.  Still, I enjoy watching it and the challenge that comes with it.

Mitch's Movie Collection- 500 Days of Summer (2009)

Directed by: Marc Webb

Starring: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Zooey Deshanel

Rotten Tomatoe Score: 86%

Box Office Gross: $32.1 Million 

Mitch Heads: 4 Mitch's

 

Mitch Thoughts: This was my #5 best film of 2009, not a romantic comedy but a romantic breakup comedy and I loved it.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt became a star with this film this might be Zooey Deshanel's most intimidating role, showcasing how much power a pretty and quirky girl can hold over us gents.  Holds up pretty well.

Mitch's Movie Collection- The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

Rotten Tomatoe Score: 85%

Box Office Gross: $109.2 Million 

Mitch Heads: 4.5 Mitch's

Mitch Thoughts: The 40 Year Old Virgin probably goes down as one of the top three films that I've laughed at the hardest while watching it the theater.  This is where Apatow perfected filthy with a huge heart and Steve Carell became a leading man and I loved it.  You know how I know your gay?
