What to Watch This Weekend: June 21, 2013


It's another theater heavy weekend with plenty of great movies for you to see. The weather is also looking to be beautiful so get out and see some films!

In Theaters: Monsters University
Monsters University is a fun, charming prequel that achieves what so many other prequels fail to do: tell a meaningful, entertaining, and interesting tale while filling in the back-story of the characters and world that you love. If you have any interest in Pixar or Monsters, Inc., you should definitely see it this weekend.

In Theaters: Much Ado About Nothing
Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing is a fresh take on a Shakespearean classic. It keeps the heart of the play while updating the aesthetics to the modern era. Although it was officially released a few weeks ago, it gets a broader release this weekend and should definitely be seen.

On DVD: 21 & Over
Maybe you want to just see a stupid comedy this weekend. Well, the 21 & Over is the movie for you. It's not a great movie, but it is funny and much better than I expected it would be. We recommended a rental a few months ago so now is your chance to check it out.

Streaming (HBO Go): Chronicle
Chronicle is an interesting, though slightly over the top movie with the same shooting style as Cloverfield. It's taken from the perspective of a hand camera that is passed around the characters as they discover and hone superpowers. It also stars Michael B. Jordan, one of my favorite young actors.

Streaming (Netflix): TEDTalks: Life Hack
This TEDTalks collection reveals simple tricks that can transform your life. Learn how your body language shapes who you are, how to start a movement, the secret to better work and much more. It has a 4.1 star Netflix rating and looks really interesting.
