The Fountain, The Runaways, and Moon


The Fountain is a movie written and directed by Darren Aronofsky.
The story is broken up into 3 different time periods (1500's,2000, and 2500) Where one man seeks eternal life from the tree of life. I will admit I couldn't really wrap my head around some of it, and will probably have to sit down and watch it again, but that's kinda why I think it's great. It doesn't sit you down and baby you the story.

The Runaways is a story based on the story of an all girl rock band started by Joan Jett back in the mid 70's. It shows the rise and fall (due to drugs) of the band. I kinda thought going into the movie that it was gonna be chickflickish, but it turned out to be not that bad of a movie, and I started listening to the actual band after finishing.

I would put the trailer up, but I'm afraid it reveals too much of the story so meh. Moon is a story about a single worker who has to harvest resources on the moon for 3 years before he gets to come home and see his wife and kid. 2 weeks from his release he finds out that something is wrong and tries to figure out what exactly is going on. This film is brilliant be sure not to pass it up.
