15/12/2011: 50/50 [2011]

Wasn't really expecting the movie I got as Seth Rogen usually inspires thoughts of a completely outrageous comedy. Also has Seth Rogen ever done a movie without pot? Even when playing an extraterrestrial he slips it in. 

Anyway onto the movie, which while primarily being a drama about cancer, is in fact a comedy of a completely different variety. A slower pace, 50/50 while not exactly making you think deep, does in fact make you feel deep drawing on the strong emotions caused as we watch how cancer affects oneself and those around you.

Interesting fact: the scene below in the poster was unscripted and Joseph Gordon-Levitt did actually shave his head.
