Top 5 Friday : August 10, 2012

1.
Yes, revenge is sweet! Thanks to Phillip Simon and Alyse Miller, graduates of Ringling College of Art and Design, for this animated feature entitled The Colors of Evil.

2.
Jerry Seinfeld and Ricky Gervais walk into a bar…no. They drive around in a really expensive English Healy and go get coffee. Also, Ricky is right; two yolks and two whites are still only two eggs. Enjoy Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee!

3. Designer Nina Boesch uses discarded MetroCards to create mosaics of the greatest city in the world, New York. Recognize the iconic colors?

4.
Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli are introducing their newest film, From Up on Poppy Hill, to US audiences next March. The mastermind behind one of my favorite films, Spirited Away, will surely add to his loyal fan base with this animated treasure.

5.
The Mike Birbiglia-directed, Ira Glass-produced film, Sleepwalk with Me, will be premiering in New York at the IFC center August 24th and 25th. As a treat, the duo will take your tickets, sell you popcorn, and clean the bathrooms. Okay, maybe not. But they will stay after each screening for a Q&A session and trust me, it will be really entertaining.
