Where I might actually leave you…

Second from my list of 4 upcoming movies not on your radar is This is where I leave you. I was pretty excited about this movie. Mostly because I think 2014 has been a very down year for comedies. Just not many of substance, especially with an ensemble cast. I’m a huge fan of Tina Fey and Jason Bateman. I think they both possess an inhuman sense of comedic timing. They can make scenes funny. For a bonus I got some Jane Fonda too (Will you marry me?) my body was ready for this movie.

The story follows Judd as he returns home for the unfortunate passing of his father. Judd is reeling on the discovery of his wives infidelity with his Boss. His family is as dysfunctional as most movie families are. They are forced to sit Shiva for their fathers funeral, which is ironic because their father wasn’t deeply religious. Making it seven hours with each other probably would have been difficult, would they survive seven entire days?

4 Upcoming Movies Probably Not On Your Radar

We are officially half way done with 2014, and its been a pretty good year for films.  With plenty of movies still coming down the pipe were looking forward too like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Guardians of the Galaxy, Hunger Games, The Hobbit, etc.  However, lets take a moment and not let the big blockbusters blind us from some potentially great movies.  So here is my list of 4 movies that I’m looking forward to, that are probably not on your radar.

THE JUDGE

To start off the list we have The Judge.  The films puts juggernaunts Robert Downey Jr. on stage with Robert Duvall, and for good measure throws in Billy Bob Thorton as well.  These 3 guys together, it can only get interesting.   Downey Jr. plays a successful hot shot lawyer, and for unfortunate circumstances has to return home to rural Indiana.  He has an estranged relationship with his father Robert Duvall, who is a very pretegious judge.  However, his father is accused of murder and has to stand trail.  He will defend his father on trail for murder. The premise isn’t spectacular, but its not meant to be.  This will be a very witty and heavy character drama.  It’s probably oscar bait as well.  Then again, 3 legends get inside the ring, you need to watch that fight.
