Hey everyone, this is an old friend of mine, Lily (22) and her almost 5 year old son C4 (nickname). They have come upon some serious rough times and are struggling to live. She and her son are currently homeless and cannot get Welfare or aid money because she lost all her records (birth certificates, shot record, etc) when she lost her storage unit. She and her son are currently sleeping on friend’s couches or in a mini van her mom gave her. They are using public restrooms to get clean and she has resorted to hanging around in malls just so her son can interact with other children. She has started a GoFundMe page and has asked me if I could share it with anyone I knew so I’m sharing it. I’ve seen a lot of people get the help they need through tumblr and I was hoping we can do the same for Lily and C4. Her goal is set fairly low and I know she is too modest to ask for more but we can try!

Sexy Evil Genius official movie trailer

Sexy Evil Genius (2013)
Directed by Shawn Piller. Starring Katee Sackhoff, Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, Harold Perrineu, and William Baldwin. This film is rated R on the United States for sex and nudity, violence and gore, profanity alcohol and drugs, and frightening scenes. 
The great movie is about 3 people that are told to meet up at a bar. These 3 people have never met before and only have one thing in common. A crazy ex-girlfriend. Once they meet up at this bar, the begin talking about the lies, betrayal and deception of their common ex, Nicki. After gossiping about their lives with Nicki, they start to wonder why she has asked them here and why she hasn’t shown up yet. Nicki, who was recently released from a hospital for the criminally insane, arrives looking happy and healthier than any of them have seen her. With her is her new lawyer fiance. Things very quickly go from a happy announcement to a game of “why does Nicki REALLY want all of us here”. 
This movie was boring to begin with but me, being a lover of (almost) all movies, I stuck it out and watched the whole thing. I’m so very glad I did. This movie wraps itself up in a nice big bow in the last 15 minutes. And in a very good way. I was very surprised by the ending. I was really on the edge of my seat for the last half hour of this movie. As a person who has literally watched close to 1,000 movies, it is very hard to keep me on the edge of my seat let alone surprise me with such a great ending. I really really enjoyed this movie and I don’t think people gave it the credit it deserves. 
★★★★★ 5/5 Stars: Watch!!! Watch a million times over and realize you’re just as surprised as you were the first time. 
(This movie contains references and scenes about drug use, drug abuse, rehab, suicide and murder. I would not suggest watching this movie if any of these situations may be triggers to you. Please watch at your own risk. You’re the only one that knows what you can handle.)

Archie’s Final Project official movie trailer

Archie’s Final Project (2009)
Directed by David Lee Miller. Starring Gabriel Sunday, Brooke Nevin and David Carradine. This film has not been rated in the United States. This movie contains sexual content, adult language, adult situations, violence and death.
This brilliant “can a movie safe a life” movie is about a young man named Archie that announces his plans to kill himself on film for a school video project. Archie is depressed and very obviously ready to take his own life. His announcement of his plan to kill himself attracts a great deal of attention, both good and bad. Some people really fear for his safety and other just think this is a cry for attention (not help). His plan attracts the attention of a beautiful young girl named Sierra, who Archie has drooled over since the day he first saw her. Sierra is the seemingly perfect girl to everyone around her and is the definition of perfect to Archie. Sadly, she may be the only person that doesn’t see how beautiful she actually is. Will Sierra chance Archie’s mind? Will things work out in the end?
Oh boy, this movie is exactly NOT what I expected. Going into the movie I knew that it was based around the idea that tis kid was going to film himself dying at his own hand but I did not expect it to be shot from his perspective like another movie I reviewed (Zero Day). Generally I don’t enjoy movies shot from the main character’s point of view but this (along with Zero Day) is an exception. This movie needed to be shot this way to really convey Archie’s thoughts and feelings. This movie is far too emotional to have been shot any other way. Although some parts of this movie were fairly predictable, it did throw in some unexpected twists and turns. I really enjoyed watching this movie and I believe this movie should be watched by anyone that has had feelings of suicide or harming themselves. This movie is a must watch for me.
★★★★✪ 4.5/5 Stars: Watch! (especially if you’re in for a good cry)

Fetching Cody (2005)
Directed by David Ray. Starring Jay Baruchel, Sarah Lind, and Jim Byrnes. This movie is not rated in the United States. It contains material not suitable for people under 18 for disturbing content  involving drug use, violence, language and sexual content. 
This movie is about a young drug dealer and user named Art and his drug addict girlfriend Cody. This movie takes place in a slummy “Downtown” full of drug addiction, prostitution and homeless people (of all ages). Cody has a troubled past and looks to drugs and turning tricks to deal with her problems. She has her caring boyfriend but doesn’t still doesn’t seem to be happy. Art cares about nothing more than finding his next score and the happiness and well being of Cody. After Cody leaves Art for the day to “go to work”, Art wonders around high and forgets that Cody is making dinner for him. After he remembers about dinner with Cody, he quickly runs to her house to find her unconscious from an apparent heroin overdose. Someone has already called an ambulance and Cody is taken away. Art, lost and confused, finds his friend Harvey (an eccentric homeless man with a lot of junk) and stays at his workshop where he finds his time machine. Art uses the time machine over and over to do anything to stop Cody from ending up in the comma but nothing seems to work until the very end…..
This movie reminded me a lot of Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind (a favorite of mine) but with a drug-drama-time machine twist. I really really liked this movie a lot. This acting in this movie was beyond great! I always love a movie that came make you cry but still be happy with the outcome at the end. This movie really makes a person think about love and how much you can possibly love someone. It makes the watcher think what would I do to help someone I love? How far would I go to make sure they are okay? Would I destroy my own life to make sure they lived happily ever after? This movie is fantastic!

Hick official movie trailer.

Hick (2011)
Directed by Derick Martini. Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Eddie Redmayne and Blake Lively. Movie Rate R in the United States for disturbing content involving a teen, violence, drug use, language and drinking. 
This movie is about a very young girl named Luli who was born and raised in a small, rural town in Nebraska. Her parents are both alcoholics and care very little about anyone but themselves. Luli decides she is tired of living with them and tries to runaway to Las Vegas. With he .45 Smith and Wesson, a small wad of cash and just enough clothes to get by she heads off with her thumb out. Along the way she runs into Eddie, a young man with some obvious anger problems. She leaves him to spend the night in a ditch. She is woken up by a beautiful young lady named Glenda who takes her along with her. Luli finds herself in quite a bit of trouble when this Eddie fellow keeps showing up wherever her and Glenda go. Luli makes so bad choices, takes some wrong turns and finds herself in a terrible situation. In the end, things go the right way though.
This movie was definitely not what I expected it to be at all. Not in a bad way. The story line is a little bit odd and goes around and around until you finally get to where the writer wanted you to be but it was a hell of a trip to get there. This movie was all-in-all a very well made movie. It was very believable and wonderfully cast. Seeing this young girl go through everything she went through and finally got a happy ending made this movie worth the watch.
★★★✪✪ 3/5 Stars: Watch it at least once!

Zero Day official Movie Trailer.

Zero Day (2003)
Directed by Ben Coccio. Starring Cal Robertson and Andre Keuck. Movie Unrated in the United States for Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense scenes.
This movie is a “video chronicle” type movie. It follows the lives of “The Army of Two”-two high school friends that declare a war on their high school with event similar to the Columbine High School Massacre. The boys decide to produce video diaries about their planning, why they have decided to do it, who was and was not involved in their planning and many other things. We see videos of their “missions” to help prep themselves for “Zero Day” and we see just how smart and these boys actually are when planning the day and an escape if prompted. In their video diaries we see into their lives and really ask ourselves “why would these boys decide to do this?” The boys seem happy and have apparently very loving and caring families. As Zero Day approches, the boys begin to become less nervous and more ready and excited for the events to take place. When Zero Day finally arrives, the viewer now watches through security cameras around the school with audio from a cell phone call to 911. The day goes according to plans for the boys. Everything except their escape, that is.
Oh boy, this movie was far far better than I had expected. I don’t usually like “video chronicle” type movies but this one was perfect. It left a lot of questions unanswered but for a good reason. Even though the boys in this film knew why they wanted to destroy their school and why they wanted to do what they did, the viewers are really kept out of the loop. Most of it doesn’t make much sense but in reality when a massacre like this happens in real life, there are so many questions that go unanswered no matter how much of it is documented and analyzed. The acting by both boys is phenomenal  I could not believe how good of actors both of them were. I almost forgot they were acting. I felt like I was watching a real video diary. I would watch this movie a million times just to figure out what was going on and to try to make the ending different.
★★★★★ 5/5 Stars: Watch over and over again!
