What to Watch this Week of July 13, 2014

What-to-Watch-400x230Opening this week in theaters are Purge: Anarchy, Sex Tape and Boyhood in limited release. Plot details will follow.

Purge: Anarchy- The sequel to the underwhelming Purge film follows a group of stranded people inside the city during the Purge. Now from what I’ve been hearing the film is not better then its predecessor, neither is it needed. It’s being connected to Paranormal Activity and found footage films that are low budgeted moneymakers. So don’t go see it unless you are a fan of ultra violence with no meaning. R Rated 1 hr. 44 min.

Sex Tape- is an original comedy that follows hard competition with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and hit R Rated comedies this year. Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz star as two people who have lost their flair in their marriage and sex life. So to spice it up they decide why not make a sex tape? Unfortunately their “tape” is accidentally sent through the internet cloud to IPads they give out at a party. Let the chaos ensue. Nothing has been released critically for the film, but I remember hearing it was okay compared to this year’s slate of comedies. R Rated 1 hr. 34 min.

Boyhood- This arthouse film from Richard Linklater was shot over 12 years and stars the same people all growing up and struggling through life. The film’s main protagonist is 5 when it begins and 18 when it ends. Although it touches on boyhood(childhood) in general, the film also talks about real issues and parenting. Critics have given this film a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes commenting on it’s epic scope and technical genius. It is truly a story about life. R Rated 2 hrs. and 45 min.

Many shows this week continue their runs including the Leftovers, Under the Dome, Pretty Little Liars, True Blood, Teen Wolf and the Bacholorette.
