What to Watch This Weekend: March 14, 2014

Need for Speed might be the first good video game movie. It's a long film with an involved (and ridiculous plot) but that's balanced by a fun cast of characters, great racing, and some of the sexiest cars you'll ever see.  

I think most people liked Inside Llewyn Davis more than I did. The Coen brother's movie about a young and talented folk singer trying to navigate the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961. Oscar Isaac gave a great performance and the movie has an interesting cast of characters, but I ultimately thought it was too slow. 

Turbo isn't a great movie, but it's a fun family film with a clever cast of characters and some beautiful visuals. And it has some good lessons for kids to learn, like never giving up on your dreams.

Pi tells the story of a paranoid mathematician who is searching for a key number that will unlock the universal patterns found in nature. I haven't seen it in years but loved it when it came out. There's really no better way to celebrate Pi day!
