When was the last time you walked away from the theater totally surprised with what you just saw? There’s no way to describe the experience other than to say it was life changing. I’m not sure if you’re one of those people who are absolutely gaga over all things Hollywood and are absolutely addicted to finding the latest movies that are coming out or if you’re like me and only give a movie thumbs up when it looks like it might be good. Either way, we have to keep up with the movies and know the current favorites. Here are my recommendations for the current top movies on DVD and my top recommendations for the future top movies on DVD.
One of my favorites at the moment is “Zac Effron”. This is the true story of a young man from all points in the spectrum. Zac Effron stars as David Blaine in this movie and makes an amazing journey across America, from his home to his car to where he finally falls in love with a girl. It’s a funny movie that should make its rounds on the list soon.
Two movies that come highly recommended from a movie lover standpoint are “The Informant! “, which is about a man who works for the CIA and the guy that planted the biggest mole, and “Unfriended”, which is about a group of computer hackers that find themselves stranded together. Both movies are fantastic and will make great choices for the list when they come out.
One movie that has been on my list for a while and that I just can’t get enough of is “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. This is a brilliant film and Dustin Hoffman delivers another amazing performance as the brilliant Michael Douglas. I can’t wait to see this one again. Sure, it’s a disaster that loses some of its steam toward the end but overall it’s a great movie and very entertaining.
One movie that didn’t make the original list due to some controversial comments by lead star Russell Crowe about the Catholic Church was “Dogpoop” starring Tim Rice. This movie had some controversy surrounding it at the time but it turned out to be a very well done and entertaining film. I also like “A History of Violence” and “Dogtoid” from George Clooney. Both movies are winners and will always hold a special place in my heart. No matter what side of the fence you’re on, you’re bound to find at least one movie that’s perfect for you.
So if you’re looking for a great selection of current movies go online and make your list. There are many sites that offer these movies so you won’t have any problems finding what you want to watch. Best of all most of the movies are available on rental. Enjoy your summer!
