Movies you might have missed: Summer 2015


[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Beach balls and flip-flops aside, summer is also a major time for movies. While many still flock to theaters to see blockbusters like “Inside Out” or “Mad Max,” these lesser-known movies still deserve some attention.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Trainwreck

In this snarky, in-your-face comedy, Amy Schumer plays a modern woman who is afraid of commitment. The male lead, played by Bill Hader, provides witty remarks that pair perfectly with Schumer’s banter. Overall it has a fun, entertaining plot composed of an adorable love story, clever humour and plenty of Lebron James.

“Quirky,” “awkward,” and “endearing” are three words I would use to describe this summer indie film. It’s based off the novel by Jesse Andrews about high school student Greg Gaines, who makes films with his best friend Earl. Greg seems to fumble his way through social interactions and is a bit of a loner. His mom forces him to reconnect with Rachel Kushner because she has been diagnosed with cancer. The characters are thoughtfully deep with detailed backstories. This film leaves you feeling sad, but optimistic.

This psychological thriller is based off of a true story where young men are payed to be in a prison simulation. Over the course of this experiment the “prisoners” lose their sanity due to the sadistic actions of the “correctional officers.” If you want something interesting and nonfictional, then watch this film.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
