What to Watch This Weekend: March 7, 2014

Mr. Peabody & Sherman is a perfect example of Hollywood translating a beloved old property into a modern, and enjoyable movie. The animation is great and the story has enough fun jokes that both young and old will enjoy.

12 Years a Slave just won best picture at the Oscars and rightfully so. The movie is a masterpiece, a brutal recreation of one of the darkest periods in American history. It is something that should be seen by everyone and now you can see it in the comfort of your home.

The toast of New York City society after penning "Breakfast at Tiffany's," flamboyant writer Truman Capote finds himself in a dance with the devil while researching the Clutter family murders for his masterwork, "In Cold Blood." Phillip Seymour Hoffman took home the academy award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Capote, and the film has a 90% rotten tomatoes rating.

An early Ryan Gosling film, United States of Leland has a low critics score but a high viewer score. I haven't seen it for years but I remembered really liking it when I saw it then. It follows a teenage boy dealing with the consequences of a horrible situation as the adults around him try to piece together and understand what led to this.
