Beautiful Boy: A Father's Journey Through His Son's Addiction by David Sheff

I've seen this book on display everywhere book are sold over the past couple months, so this comes as no surprise... is Starbucks the new Oprah's Book Club? Paramount Pictures and Plan B have acquired pic rights to the David Sheff memoir “Beautiful Boy: A Father’s Journey Through His Son’s Addiction” and the Nic Sheff memoir “Tweak: Growing Up on Methamphetamines.” Studio and producer will use the recently published books to frame a movie about drug addiction from the perspective of a young meth addict and the father who finds himself helpless to stop his son’s downward spiral. Both Sheff books were published in February and became bestsellers. Houghton Mifflin’s “Beautiful Boy” is being sold in Starbucks locations around the country as part of the Starbucks Select book series. The movie will be produced in association with Starbucks.

Night Shamalayan's best, it has what I would dare to say is one of the best suspense scenes in cinema. That's a big accomplishment. It's the scene where Joaquin Pheonix's character is watching tv in the closet. I won't ruin it for you, just watch it.

Tom Cruise 2. Dakota Fanning 3. New Jersey (i got parasites from drinking the water) On the 'yay' side there's: 1. Tom Cruise's son hates him in the movie. HAHAHAHAHAHA! 2. Aliens. cool. 3. New Jersey (it has its charm) 4. Special Effects of the apocalyptic kind So you see, the 'yays' out number the 'nays'. Watch on.

It was one of 2005's most critically acclaimed films, and won the Camera D'or for Best First Film at Cannes. Say if Diablo Cody had not only written Juno, but directed and starred in it as well, you'd be coming close to Me and You and Everyone We Know territory. Miranda July, who wrote, directed and stars as Christine, who falls in love with Richard (John Hawkes), a divorcing father and shoe salesman. How do hopeless people fall in love when they're hopeless? Watch this and find out. It's quietly confident, sunny, sweet and quirky, much in the vein of Juno but without the insanely hip dialogue. It's sweet central love story is tempered by some very audacious moments involving sex, but it's got so much charm it's hardly offensive enough to matter. Oh and ))<>((.

The movie is a real time narrative about a guy (Depp) who gets tangled up in an assassination plot of a political figure. Christopher Walken plays the goon thats holding Depp's daughter hostage. If he doesn't kill the politico, his cute lil daughter gets it. yikes.
