Okay so here’s the few info why I choose this movies as my alternative list. It was 1979 when I was born in the year of the goat. I’m a Gemini and I enjoy all sorts of adventure as long as I can handle. I wasn’t privileged enough to watch some of the movies because I was a minor then. Now, as piracy invades everything, I managed to watch some of it and treat myself. Along with these, I choose these movies because of its awesome alternative soundtrack. You may just can’t get enough of it after hearing one and oh yes, watching it.
The Virgin Suicides
(Directed by: Sofia Coppola, 1999)
This is the story of five doomed sisters (the Lisbons) who committed suicide. The movie is set in Michigan during 1970’s. The Virgin Suicides showcases the feelings of young and beautiful girls who want to explore more knowing the fact that there are several ‘adam’ beyond their grasp while adoring them. Still they were all miserable under the strict commands of their parents. I really feel sorry for them.
Natural Born Killers
(Directed by: Oliver Stone, 1994)
I was almost stumbled and found out that doing cartwheels wasn’t really in my nerves then when I started to watch this. I had a bad headache after watching it.
Mickey and Mallory were victims of traumatic childhood. They fell in love the first time they saw each other and felt like there’s nobody can stop them. They became psychopathic serial killers. The movie shows all the killing spree Mickey and Mallory did and it was surprisingly glorified by mass media. The movie delivers crime, drama and romance plus elements of black comedy. Why black comedy? Actually, I really don’t know but there are scenes in here in the setting of a regular comedy tv show which in the end, they killed everybody. The graphic contents were really savaging as if like there’s no more tomorrow.
(by Quentin Tarantino, 1994)
The movie has seven sequences and it is not in chronological order. Surprisingly, it started at the diner and later on, the show is just getting started. Everything is delivered in ravaging art of cinematography. You’ll never get bored while watching this. My bet is when Mia Wallace (Uma Thurman) is O.D.in and Vincent Vega (John Travolta) is ready to give her an adrenalin shot right thru her heart to save her. By the way, Samuel Jackson got something nice to say…..”The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know My name is the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon thee.”
(Roger Kumble, 1999)
It is all about the bet of two step – siblings. Kathryn bets Sebastian that if he won’t able to bed Annette then she will get Sebastian’s Jaguar but if Sebastian wins, he will get Kathryn.

What will Sebastian and Annette’s chemistry then?
The Blair Witch Project
(Daniel Myrick, Eduardo Sánchez 1999)
Honestly, I got nightmares after seeing this flick. The story of three film students that are about to discover the urban legend Blair Witch. They happen to hike the Black Hills near Burkittsville, Maryland and unfortunately they never returned.
Jackass The Movie
(Jeff Tremaine, 2002)
It all started when I watched these guys ten years ago in MTV Channel. Johnny Knoxville and friends wander from Japan with their Panda Costumes and most of their funny stunts all packed in this movie. Check out The Omelette made by Dave England! J J
