Tuesdays at the Movie June 26, 2012

Posted by Dori in Movies.

Yes – I’m back! I know it’s been awhile – a few schedule changes, time off, etc., affected my blogging, but now that things have calmed down a bit, I can continue with my movie musings….

Summer blockbuster season has officially begun, but I have yet to participate. My family has seen The Avengers and Prometheus, and have enjoyed them, but I think I’ll wait for the DVDs. I would like to see Wes Anderson’s new movie Moonrise Kingdom, which I know is not exactly a blockbuster, but I like his quirky sensibility, so I think I’ll like it. What movies are you looking forward to watching this summer?

Onward to DVD releases available at RRPL:

Big Miracle: Family film about the rescue of gray whales trapped by ice in the arctic circle.
Wanderlust: Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star in this movie about yuppies ending up at a hippie commune.
Jeff Who Lives at Home: Susan Sarandon stars as a mother with two grown sons, played by Jason Segal and Ed Helms. Segal plays Jeff, who is apparently a bit of a loser and is searching for some meaning in life.
Keyhole: The latest from director Guy Maddin stars Jason Patric as a gangster who has returned home and travels through his house, room by room, searching for his wife Hyacinth. Mysterious and ghostly.
Attenberg: A touching and funny coming of age movie from Greece.
