Great Surprise

Being that I've never heard of this movie, along with the fact that no one has reviewed it, I figured I might be in for a huge disappointment. This was not the case. I got a great movie with interesting, unique dialogue and a creative, realistic story progression. Really well done.

Winner of a Twinkie Cowboy t-shirt!

Entered a contest back in the day for promotional materials from subUrbia, and I got one of those great Twinkie Cowboy t-shirts, so you know I had to travel to see this film in a theater during a frigid big city winter. The movie is a lyrical poem to all the disaffected suburban kids who feel like there is no place in life for them. Even now, I long to sit down and watch this profound film again. Movies like this should be savored over and over. I hope you'll have a chance to watch subUrbia and explore some breakout performances from a fine ensemble cast in a town without pity. Meet you in the tent or outside the 'mart.


Well I love this movie...I love the acting...i love the writing...I love the social interactions...its funny...its deep...its a slice of America baby! This is exactly why I love movies...take ur Transformers...and All ur Comic book nonsensical movies and shove'em...this is my type of movie...its a brilliant film by a brilliant mind.
