I hope you all had a pleasant Friday the 13th/Valentine’s Day combo weekend. It’s pretty much spring now. I walked to work without a jacket on today and it’s February. Yikes. Anyhow, we got a bunch of new releases this week including a lot of Oscar-nominated titles and two movies with Naomi Watts.

THE NEW RELEASES

b2639301-712e-4c95-a53b-be27a93c0ce7

Birdman
Michael Keaton plays an aging ex-superhero actor which is probably not a stretch for the former Mr. Batman. Supposedly good. Nominated for 9 academy awards!

The Theory of Everything
This Stephen Hawking biopic covers his early life at Cambridge, relationship with his wife, later life, crippling disease and scientific accomplishments. Based on the memoir written by his wife Jane Hawking. Nominated for 5 Oscars. If you’re in to Mr. Hawking’s work you should also check out the many science documentaries of his we have in stock.

St. Vincent
Curmudgeonly, hard-drinking, gambling old-man Bill Murray befriends a young neighbour boy with a single mother. Nominated for no academy awards, but academy awards don’t really mean anything.

The Interview
Seth Rogen and James Franco teamed up once again and this time they decided to push the limits of political correctness all the way. They play members of the American media who travel to North Korea with the secret mission of murdering Kim Jong-un. Oy vey.

Dumb and Dumber To
The Farrelly brothers are back with a very silly sequel to the 1994 hit comedy. Jim Carey and Jeff Daniels are out to prove that they’re not just respected dramatic actors – they can still make fart jokes like they used to. Nominated for 23 Oscars!

5f6696e0-5208-4e1d-a50a-6171d7280f8a

Force Majeure
A dark comedy about a seemingly perfect Swedish family that gets stranded on a mountainside by an avalanche on a skiing trip. Should have been nominated!

4e359b3d-7b6a-442f-8197-f265191e697a

The Tale of Princess Kaguya
Another gem from Studio Ghibli which seems to be sort of a Japanese take on the fairytale Thumbelina. A tiny girl is found in a bamboo stalk and then grows up to be a princess.

8686e694-157a-4512-848d-b41edaf4f4fe
