Spike Jonze Apreciation

Pharcyde – Drop, extremely creative video for the Hip-Hop Quartet.

 How They Get There, a short film featuring the Skateboard legend and artist Mark Gonzales, later bit by a pepsi add.  Gap Commercial, don’t sleep. 

 Being John Malkovich trailer, classic movie one of Spike’s first feature films that he directed. 

 Girl Skate Video’s trailer, Spike I believe had a hand in all of these skate-classics. 

 Introduction to Lakai’s (skateboard shoe company) Fully Flared

 WaxSouthern California, classic Spike, I know most everyone remember’s this video and the controversy surrounding it when the video hit the scene back in 95. 

 Spike Jonze has directed countless other music videos(Beastie Boys  Sabotage, Weezer  Buddy Holly, Kanye West   Flashing Lights, Dinosaur Jr.  Feel The Pain, Fatboy Slims Praise You and Weapon of Choice) commercials, acted in Three Kings as the memorable Conrad alongside Ice Cube George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg plus directed a handful of  films(Adaptation, Jackass, Jackass 2 and Video Days) all of which are definately worth checking out.  Spike is also wrapping up the film Where the Wild Things Are which is based off of my favorite children’s story of the same name about young Max himself so stay tuned for more.

  

Take My Breath Away (Ocean’s 11)

By far one of the best moments in the classic film Ocean’s 11 is the scene where dude is running through the casino with the money, and then the cops blast him right outside to “Berlin’s “Take my breath away”. This is one of the coolest movies ever by the way, the rest suck!

 

 

Burn After Reading

“The fucking Russians?!!!??!” – Osbourne Cox

Coen Brothers have done it again, brilliant cinema in the same vein as “Fargo” and “Raising Arizona”  Ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, waaaay over their ignorant heads.
