Reminiscent of a female Aspen Extreme, the movie stars Jones as pretty tomboy Kim, a one-time champion skateboarder who now flips burgers to support herself and her dad. Opportunity comes knocking when she lands a winter-long catering job in a plush ski chalet in the Austrian Alps.
At first, Kim is overwhelmed by this bizarre new world of champagne-sipping posh people, epic mountains and waist-deep powder. But then she discovers snowboarding, and her natural talent soon sees her training for the end-of-season competition, which could win her major prize money and maybe even the affections of her boss’ handsome son Jonny (Ed Westwick, TV’s Gossip Girl).

I have quite the variety of films I watched this week from the random early '90s sports flick, to the small Gus Van Sant flick, to the late '40s near-noir. In short, it was a good week of movie watching. Let's get to it...
Paranoid Park (2007) Quick Thoughts: This had been in my Instant Queue for about a year or so based on a lot of good things I'd heard about it. The less-than-90-minute runtime was the reason I finally decided to watch it as I wanted something that wasn't too long to watch one night before calling it a day. If I wanted to simplify it down to a sentence, I'd say Paranoid Park proves Gus Van Sant is a true storyteller.
The film deals with Alex (Gabe Nevins), a skateboarder that finds himself working out just what he should do following the accidental death of a security guard. »
