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!
