Now that summer is just about over, it's time to leave behind those beautiful multi-million dollar blockbuster dreams and settle in to a little more substance. Deep, spiritual stories about people coming to terms with their life, their love, their past, their future and, well, everything in between. It's time for what I like to call those "what does it all mean" films. So put away the diary and grab a box of tissues because it's finally time – cue inspirational music – for this week's Trailer Park:
- The always reliable Nicolas Cage teaches us that, just because there's a cold front sneaking down from up north, it doesn't mean things must go south when it comes to your family; because Weather Men are people too dammit. Right Nick? Right?
- Cameron Crowe proves that not only can death have a kick ass soundtrack, but Kirsten Dunst is a actually a decent actress. No, seriously. She may even make you cry in Elizabethtown.
- Sure, Heath Ledger is one of the sexiest men alive, but when his heart is broken in pieces, how will this Casanova ever discover the true meaning of love? Man, one can only imagine the trip he's about to take.
- Ever wonder what's really going on inside the mind of a suicide bomber? Me neither. When two men set out to fulfill a mindless mission, they'll be forced to decide whether or not to wait or discover Paradise Now.
- Life may be falling apart for Richard Gere, but that doesn't mean he should just stop caring about the spelling bee. It's Bee Seasonpeople! Yeah, I'll bet there's another, more important season that begs to differ. Right Oscar? Right?
