Quite the variety in movies released on DVD this week, but my personal choice by far is Moonrise Kingdom. It has thus far been one of my favorite movies of the year, and if you haven't seen it yet, please do. It's charming, it's funny and makes me want to go to summer camp and fall in love for the very first time.
If you would like family friendly, well, more family friendly fare, then the animated Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is also available.
However, if what you really are desiring right now is to put yourself through some the misery of watching Adam Sandler play Andy Samberg's childlike father, I present you with That's My Boy. Good luck, I hope you survive.
|1. Moonrise Kingdom|
If there was doubt that Wes Anderson's movies were taking a continual dive in quality, just watch this movie and your faith in the director will be restored. I couldn't love it more.
|2. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted|
The animals are on the run fighting to get home, but this time take a journey through the sites of Europe. It's entertaining and it's fun, and you can't really get "Mad" at that.
|3. That's My Boy|
Watch at your own risk. That's all I have to say about that.
|4. Chernobyl Diaries|
This horror film follows six vacationers who are going on an "extreme" tour and ignore warnings that they should not go near the Chernobyl nuclear reactor. Because, yes, that seems like a warning you should ignore.
|5. Turn Me On, Dammit!|
If you would like to watch a 15 year old rack up extravagant phone sex bills, well, here you go. No, wait, I promise, it's not as creepy as it sounds!
|6. Mad Men|
If you missed Megan Draper sing Zou, Bisou, Bisou or the plight of Lane Pryce, take a moment to watch this incredible season of Mad Men.
It's sad this series that had so much potential, was just never able to find its footing. However, it is kind of cool to see a series take place n the rare location of Alcatraz. It's worth a few hours of your time…only a few.
