What to Watch! Theatrical Releases for the Week of July 25, 2014
Happy weekend all and welcome to another Theatrical Release edition of What to Watch! You’ve got some light affairs from the likes of Rob Reiner and Joe Swanberg balanced out by an action packed release from Luc Besson! This week also sees new movies from Woody Allen and Brett “Rehearsals are for f*gs (Figs)” Ratner! If David O. Russell had a movie coming out this week, it’d be the ultimate slate of movies directed by polarizing directors with a reputation for being scumbags! Ahh but seriously, folks… I Heart Huckabees is the best, and I’ll take any chance to express that feeling I can get.
Also let’s look at the movies and talk about some of them! Note “some”!

Garden State | 2004 | dir. Zach Braff
"So what do we do? What do we do?"
Garden State is a film that has apparently lost much of its charm throughout the past decade, but I still sort of love it, and not because of the hip indie soundtrack (which I still very much enjoy), but rather because these characters seem to be duplicates of people I actually know, people who are clearly lost but comfortable in taking the next unknowable step in life, and the older I get, the more I appreciate that quality in others.
The final image of Braff’s new film, Wish I Was Here, is in this trailer. Can you guess what it is?
