The 23 Movies to Watch this Summer

No. 16. Safety Not Guaranteed

June 8, 2012 | Comedy

An intern at a newspaper goes undercover to befriend a man who posted a wanted ad seeking someone to travel back in time with him. An unlikely friendship ensues.

Why see it?
My friend’s brother appears in the trailer. Oh, and the movie looks funny, charming and just a little bit different.

No. 15. Your Sister’s Sister

June 15, 2012 | Drama, Romance

A man (Mark Duplass) sleeps with his female best friend’s sister (Rosemarie DeWitt), unaware of his friend’s feelings for him – and his for her (Emily Blunt). The man learns that a love triangle between two sisters is challenging.

Why see it?
Early buzz has been strong and the movie appears to have found the right balance between comedy, drama and romance.

No. 14. Moonrise Kingdom

May 25, 2012 | Comedy

A boy befriends a girl and convinces her to run away with him, setting off a comedic manhunt involving the likes of Bruce Willis, Ed Norton and Bill Murray.

Why see it?
The movie is the first live-action production from Wes Anderson (The Royal Tenenbaums, The Fantastic Mr. Fox) since 2007’s awful The Darjeeling Limited. Here’s looking for a comeback.

No. 13. ParaNorman

August 17, 2012 | Family

A young boy who can talk with the dead has to save his small town from zombies, ghosts, witches and, worst of all, moronic grown-ups.

Why see it?
Featuring an edgy style and cool special effects, ParaNorman looks to be a unique children’s movie. And, surprisingly, Tim Burton isn’t involved at all with the project.
