Dystopian future-meets home invasion horror movie starring Ethan Hawke. Now, I don’t really understand why letting everyone in America commit any crime they want one night a year, consequence-free, would then reduce crime and unemployment and babies’ tears for the rest of the year, but that’s the concept they’re throwing at us here. Fine. Whatever. Bring on the creepy masks and the machetes!
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson reunite for another bro comedy, this time set in the HA HA HA TECH COMPANIES ARE SO RIDIC! world of Google. They’re aging and jobless, and hope to win an internship at the company. But, you see, they may not be as “smart” as the kids they’re competing against, but they’ve got wisdom, man. And they’re going to show those kids a thing or two about HAVING FUN!
Coming of age tale about three teenage boys who flee their oppressive households to go build a cabin and live in the woods. Conceptually, sounds kind of awful, but Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Allison Brie, and Mary Lynn Rajskub are some of the featured grown-ups, and that’s a pretty impressive comedic arsenal…
Good-for-you drama about an underground environmentalist group that is infiltrated by the FBI. What starts out as a mission to bring the group down changes dramatically. San Francisco bonus! Actress Ellen Page and director Zal Batmanglij will both be appearing at the Embarcadero Cinema after the 7:30PM showing on Saturday, June 8th for a Q&A session!
You can read my full review here, but in short, it’s great, and you should go see it, even if you’re not much of a Shakespeare person. And if you’re a Joss Whedon person, well, you’re probably already in line.
