Your Sister's Sister

A unique set of circumstances beCheck Spellingtween sisters and a friend create a love triangle like I've never seen before. Your Sister's Sister is a well written, beautifully acted drama. I liked this film.

In the latest Pixar offering, Brave, a young girl stands up for herself and is seen as difficult. When a wish goes bad there is drama and misunderstanding. An intense fight scene makes this one a no-go for little ones. The plot gets a bit complicated, but the animation and music are gorgeous.

Bernie is a golden-tonged opportunist. When it works for him all is well. When it doesn't, he snaps and his world unravels. Based on a true story, this was an interesting film.

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom is the most charming film I've seen this year. In Wes Anderson's familiar pallet, we see two young people search for love, maturity and acceptance. An outstanding cast and familiar RI locations made this film a home run for me.

Total Recall (1990)

Starting out The Summer of Schwarzenegger in the Cort & Fatboy Midnight Movie series is Total Recall. I would never have watched this film on my own. With the guidance of a commentary and a few micro-brews I found this sci-fi ride to be a lot of fun.
