Boost or Bust is the title of the new adidas commercial starring Damian Lillard, his $140 Crazylight Boost sneakers & Turner sports’ Rachel Nichols.  The concept of the ad is that Lillard “would be great at anything in life” even a “popcorn-slinging, movie theater employee serving customers before show time.”  After the movie theater scene the word “bust” appears which is pretty fitting.  Then “bust” turns to “boost” and it switches to a scene of him playing basketball.

It’s hard to find anything more positive to say about how awesome Lillard is on the court so instead I’m going to share my personal 5 favorite (not what I consider the best) films of the year so far (and I haven’t seen Boyhood yet which I know is at the top of many lists).

  1. Guardians of the Galaxy
  2. Raid 2
  3. Snowpiercer
  4. Enemy
  5. Jodorwsky’s Dune

As for busts, Godzilla is at the top of my list.  I’m not saying it’s worse than Transformers part whatever or any comedy starring Cameron Diaz but I didn’t expect those films to be good. I did expect Godzilla to be great.
