What to Watch This Weekend: October 11, 2013

There are some great options this week including some really wonderful streaming movies.  At this point, if you haven't seen Starbuck, make some time for it this weekend!

In Theaters: Captain Phillips
Captain Phillips' dramatization of 2009's Maersk Alabama hijacking sails past other thrillers with its strong performances, interesting antagonists, and focused depiction of an intense, unusual crisis. 

On DVD: Much Ado About Nothing
Joss Whedon's Much Ado About Nothing is a fresh take on this Shakespearean classic, keeping the heart of the play while updating the aesthetics to the modern era. 

Streaming (Netflix): Starbuck
Starbuck is one of David's favorite movies of the year and it's now possible to watch it for free on Netflix streaming. Watch it now to prepare yourself for the English remake coming out later this year.  Or just watch it because it's an amazing movie.

Streaming (Netflix): Salinger
Salinger was not well received.  We haven't seen it but it's rare that a movie that came out so recently is available on Netflix Instant so quickly.  The movie is an unprecedented look inside the private world of J.D. Salinger, the reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye.
