Cudi opens up his life in this documentary that chronicles his career. He has been an inspiration to many and shares a BTS look at his music-making process.

Love & Other Drugs

Love & Other Drugs is a romantic comedy based on a novel by Jamie Reidy, Hard Sell: The Evolution of a Viagra Salesman.

Jamie Randall (Jake Gyllenhaal), a pharmaceutical salesman who works for Pfizer in the 1990s. He has always been able to sell himself to the ladies but finds selling new medicines to doctors isn’t quite as easy. That is until he learns of a new product called Viagra.

He meets Maggie (Anne Hathaway), a young woman who has early-onset Parkinson’s. Their relationship is casual, knowing  Maggie’s prognosis, but over time things change for the pair.

Also starring Oliver Platt, Hank Azaria, Josh Gad, Gabriel Macht, Judy Greer, George Segal and Natalie Gold.

The Rocker

The comedy film The Rocker stars Rainn Wilson as a drummer who, after messing things up with his band 20 years earlier, gets another chance to shine. Robert “Fish” Fishman (Wilson) joins his nephew’s band to live out a lifelong dream to be a rocker.

This film is a hilarious look at the life of someone who wished they made it big in the music world. It does a great job of bridging the generational gap in the music world.

Starring Christina Applegate, Jeff Garlin, Josh Gad, Teddy Geiger, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, Jane Lynch, Will Arnett, Fred Armisen, Howard Hesseman, Lonny Ross, Bracely Cooper and Aziz Ansari.

The Faculty

The film stars Jordana Brewster, Clea DuVall, Laura Harris, Josh Hartnett, Shawn Hatosy, Famke Janssen, Piper Laurie, Bebe Neuwirth, Robert Patrick, Usher Raymond, Jon Stewart, Salma Hayek, and Elijah Wood.

Harrington High School’s faculty have been acting a bit odd lately. This is due to an alien parasite that is controlling them. The staff proceeds to try and infect the student body one by one. It is a true slasher film with some sci-fi thrown in.
