Here are some more movies I've seen lately that I have absolutely loved! Watch them if you're still on winter break, make it the first movie of 2014! All the movie descriptions are copied from IMDB.

The Kings of Summer

"Three teenage friends, in the ultimate act of independence, decide to spend their summer building a house in the woods and living off the land."

This movie is super hilarious, has great actors, and a pretty good plot in my opinion. What kid hasn't thought of what it would be like to live without their parents once in their life? It's more than that though. It's about love, family, friendship, and most importantly, growing up. Moises Arias's character is so funny, which is a plus. It also has Nick Offerman from Parks and Rec! How can you not watch this?

The Way Way Back

"Shy 14-year-old Duncan goes on summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and her boyfriend's daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park."

If you couldn't tell, I like coming-of-age films, and this (I think) is one. It was just really nice to see Duncan grow up and become more confident. It tugs at your heartstrings. Sam Rockwell does a really great job as Owen. Makes me want to go somewhere for summer and have an adventure by getting a job...

Safety Not Guaranteed

"Three magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed a classified ad seeking a companion for time travel."

This is a pretty offbeat romcom, but it's worth the watch. It even has  Aubrey Plaza, another Parks and Rec actor, and Jake Johnson from New Girl! It's a pretty interesting story line that'll keep your attention. It has a pretty ambiguous ending, but it's still a happy one.





Hope you guys check out the movies. If you do, leave a comment telling us what you thought!

Just wanted to make a quick recap of the movies I've seen lately that I've loved! Trust me, I've seen way more, but that doesn't mean they were all good. After all, this is 'Things We Love.' ;)

First up is 'The Dark Knight Rises.' I was never a super huge fan of the batman franchise, and I only vaguely remember the past two movies, but I have to say that after watching this, I really wanted to watch the other two again! I walked in after the movie started and it was only ten minutes in or so, but I got hooked right away. It was probably because I didn't know Anne Hathaway could act like that! Oh my goodness, she was such a BA. And I love it when the girls are the ones kicking butt! Don't forget Joseph Gordon-Levitt! I loved the reveal of his name at the end (Robin) and that left it open to make another Batman movie as well. Overall, the movie was great with an entertaining story and a surprise twist! 
This next movie is now in my list of favorites. 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' is about a wallflower who meets a group of seniors and their time together in high school. It's sad, yet sweet at the same time. I had the inexplicable urge to cry after the movie ended. The feels, man, the feels. I love absolutely everything about it. It hits all the right places for me. First, the cast is amazing! Logan Lerman, Emma Stone, Ezra Miller, Paul Rudd, and Nicholas Braun? Yes, yes, and yes! The story is great as well. Now this is a real high school movie and I understand why it is called a coming of age film. I'll have to read the book soon. And before you think, " Oh gosh, they made a movie out of the book? It's gonna be terrible!" Don't worry, the author of the book directed the film! :D
Oh, 'Pitch Perfect", how you make me laugh. This is one of the most hilarious movies I've seen. Now it's not the best movie out there, but it sure is funny and entertaining. Who doesn't wanna watch a movie about acapella competitions?! Anna Kendrick is great, and I have a new found appreciation for Rebel Wilson. But my two favorite characters are Donald and Lilly. There is just something about them that makes me love them more. Also, the actress who plays Lilly is a fashion designer which is awesome and the actor who plays Donald is part of a freestyle rap group called Freestyle Love Supreme, which is also awesome! That's right, I creeped on them. This is also one of the most quotable movies ever. And they did the acapella version of 'No Diggity'! If you're looking for a light, funny movie, then this is the movie for you!
As you can see, this wasn't really a review but more on what I liked about the movies. I hope they convinced you to watch them though! They're worth your time! :) We'd love to know what you thought of them if you do decide to watch these movies, so drop a comment!
