Kicking it Old School

Well with award season upon us and stars being honored for all their amazing movies, I thought I would kick it back a few (several) years and share with you all some of my favorite movies from some of these stars that you may not have known about.

Mickey Rouke - back when he was unbelievably sexy, yes kiddos there was a time when he was fine ass piece of meat. If you want to see for yourselves, please watch the following....


5 guys in their 20's spend most of their time hanging out in a Diner. It's Christmas time in 1959, and the guys all begin to think it's about time they went about their lives without the comfort of the 'diner'.

9 1/2 Weeks - This movie is hot and makes you want to do naughty things with things with leftovers...

In the often impersonal city of New York, the capital that never sleeps and is filled with the shadows and secrets of its citizens, a man and a woman start a sexually orientated affair.
Kate Winslet

Heavenly Creatures - I believe this was Kate's first movie role. Its very dark but great, and directed by Peter Jackson (uhhh Lord of the Rings guy)

Two girls have an intense fantasy life; their parents, concerned the fantasy is too intense, separate them, and the girls take revenge.
Angelina Jolie

GIA - This is a true story HBO film based upon the tragic life of Gia Carangi, a top fashion model from the late 1970s.

Jeremy Piven

Very Bad Things - this movie has an outstanding cast and is VERY dark, but totally hilarious.
A group of friends head to Vegas for a bachelor party. But was happens in Vegas didn't stay in Vegas for these guys, a little sex, plenty of drugs, and a lot of murder.
Anyone else have some movies to recommend, I'm all ears.

Damn yo. Talk about old school. ;)

Just kidding. Ummm I saw the new Kate Winslet one tonight and as ALWAYS she was phenomenal. Slightly depressing but GREAT acting.

I've only seen Gia & Very Bad Things - I'll have to check the others out - my boyfriend is making fun of me for not having heard of them.
