June 9th brought Kingsman: The Secret Service. This is about a spy organization bringing in a very new, very young recruit at the same time all Hell essentially breaks loose. I have not watched this one yet but I have it an pretty good authority that it is a MUST see. I rented it during vacation and got so caught up watching season 3 of OITNB that I ended up having to return it unwatched. It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Colin Firth, and Michael Caine. Project Almanac features a lot of young talented actors. The story involves a group of high school students who uncover blueprints for a mystery device that could put their lives in danger. My favorite release for the day and the newest addition to the home library is The Duff. My daughter and I saw this in the theater as soon as it came out and we loved it. I am not ashamed to admit that I even cried a bit at one part. Duff stands for Designated Ugly Fat Friend. This movie almost feel like a throw back to an 80's John Hughes film. It stars Mae Whitman as "the Duff" and Bella Thorne as "the Hot Chick". Trust me this is not only hilarious but it sends a good message to teens about being proud of who they are.
That is all I have time to cover at the moment but check back tomorrow and I will be covering releases from the 16th and the new ones out tomorrow.
