50/50 (Blu-ray)

If there was an Academy Award given for Best Cancer Comedy, 50/50 would win in a landslide. It would also be the only movie nominated… possibly ever. Despite the serious topic (a seemingly healthy 20-something who contracts a rare cancer with a 50% survival rate), 50/50 is actually pretty damn funny. As guys, we’d use anything we could to our advantage when it comes to picking up women, even if that means cancer, right? Okay, that sounds messed up when we say it, but fairly hilarious when Kyle (Seth Rogen) tries to convince his buddy Adam (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) to do so. Inspired by a true story, 50/50 is really an emotional drama delivered in a nice little comedic package scented with medicinal marijuana.
