Another Year At Sundance: 6 Movies To Watch Out For This Summer

It was 5 days filled with 11 Sundance Films, some snow & rain, bad food, minivans, magic taxis, my partners in crime Bruce Russo & Ryan Pfluger and made up stories about making out with celebrities in the bathroom. It's Sunday and I'm left in awe of what an amazing time I had at Sundance. The only thing missing was Matt who couldn't make it this year due to his MBA program.

Six Sundance Movies To Watch Out For

500 Days of Summer

Movie will be a huge hit this summer, both Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are cute and loveable and the movie had a great soundtrack. I can't keep the song "Sweet Disposition" by Temper Trap out of my head (partly Ryan's fault for playing it over and over again on his laptop). It's the kind of movie that will drop this summer witha lot of buzz and only grow as people blog and talk about it on facebook. Everyone will talk about it and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be propelled into that next level of mainstream success and celebrity status.

Cute highschool coming of age movie. The thespian virgin, the James Dean character with confidence issues and the geek dealing with sexual identity issues.

The Vicious Kind

Mystery Team

This was a surpise hit at Sundance. There were so many people at the premiere that they added 2 additional screenings. During the movie is one of the funniest movies I have scene in a very long time. It's Napoleon Dynomite, Encyclopedia Brown mixed in with strippers, drugs, and lots of bad language. Well worth watching when it hits the big screen.

The Informers

A movie about Los Angeles 1983, Hollywood, wealth, drugs, sex and all kinds of over indulgence. This movie has one of the best opening sequences I have ever scene.

The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle
One of the most unique films I have ever seen, and the best part is that it was filmed here in Seattle with help from the Northwest Film Forum.

Look for these movies this summer.
