If you only see one movie this summer… um, it should probably be Batman. Or Avengers, if you haven’t seen it yet. But if you’re only going to see three movies this summer, then for sure see Moonrise Kingdom!
Unless you hate Wes Anderson. And if you hate Wes Anderson, why is that? I’m not sure I can help you. Bottle Rocket? Seriously, you did not like Bottle Rocket? It’s indie style, I’ll grant you, nothing blows up and there’s no CGI, but come on!
And I’m not one of those indie fans who only sees movies no one likes and won’t watch TV and won’t go to Taco Bell. Oh, I’ll go to Taco Bell, just watch me! I’ll go in there and order stuff and eat it while watching TV! I had to see this (like, 3 weeks late or so) in a rickety theater full of old people and I did not like having to do that. I wish it had been in a big, fake, plasticy multiplex where I could have gotten some frequent movie watcher points. So don’t think I’m one of those people. I like big dumb movies, but this was a small, smart movie that was also very good. And funny. And, I’m going to say it, quirky. You should go see it, it will restore your faith in whatever you’ve lost faith in.
Then you can go see Batman and that will level you out. Then have one of the burritos that have potatoes in them. They’re awesome.
