Three movie reviews today. First up is one I had been waiting to see for a while, Harmony & Me.
Harmony & Me, directed by Bob Byington deals with Harmony, a 30 year old guy who has a crappy job and is completely heartbroken after being dumped by his girlfriend Jessica. And he doesn’t waste any opportunity to tell anyone and everyone that, “she’s breaking my heart and is still at it.”
Though the movie does have a mumblecore feel to it, the dialogue is hilarious (“She’s breaking my heart. She’s like a bear with my heart in it’s claws.”) and the supporting cast is great. Especially Bob Schneider.
Other funny moments I enjoyed included every scene with Harmony’s young brother (dressed in jeans and hoodie to a family wedding) and Harmony’s rant at his boss’s funeral. Harmony himself was played by Bishop Allen frontman Justin Rice and this has had to be my favorite role he’s played in so far.
Next up is Breaking Upwards, directed by and starring Daryl Wein and also starring Zoe Lister Jones.
Daryl and Zoe, a real life couple, play two characters named after their real names who have decided to break up slowly by having several “off days” during the week in which they aren’t allowed to see or call each other. They do this in order to make their break up easier, which at first is so easy it seems they aren’t even trying to break up. Though they find out later that things become more difficult as they begin to become attracted to other people.
The film was not the best I’ve seen all year, but it wasn’t terrible either. I just could not imagine a real couple doing this. My favorite part of the movie was the final scene, which touched me the most. And it featured the fantastic song “Fan of Shades” by Kyle Forester.
Third up is Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows.
All I have to say is” ZOMG THIS MOVIE WAS AMAZING I’VE BEEN LIKE WAITING FOR IT ALL YEAR. I LOVED IT I LOVED IT I LOVE HARRY AND HARMIONE SHE’S SO HOT. WATCH IT NOW WATCH NOWWATCH IT NOW!!!
Ahem. Next post will have videos of the Pizza! show I attended last night. But here’s The Pains of Being Pure at Hear performing “This Love Is Fucking Right!” from their Echoplex show two Friday’s ago.
Really fun set, except I was dissapointed that they didn’t play “Say No To Love.”
