05:00 AM, Apr 23, 2013
Got some free time and an empty DVR queue? These flicks are now available:
Release o’ the week: Happy People: A Year in the Taiga. I’m eager to see this Werner Herzog doc, which follows the lives of indigenous people living in an extremely remote area of the Siberian Taiga.
- Mr. Selfridge. Jeremy Piven stars in this PBS period piece.
- Promised Land. Gus Van Sant directs Matt Damon and John Krasinski in this fracking-themed pic.
- Wuthering Heights. Why watch another version of the classic? Because this one stars Kaya Scodelario from Skins.
- The Impossible. Naomi Watts was nominated for an Oscar for her performance in this heavy drama.
- Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie. Yeah, this one is about what you’d expect from the tokin’ duo.
