Spaceballs

Angle on Redbox

Knowing

Angle on Redbox

Nicolas Cage (National Treasure) stars in this edge-of-your-seat sci-fi thriller as John Koestler, a professor who deciphers a coded message with terrifyingly accurate predictions about every major world disaster. Looking to protect his family and prevent future calamities, he enlists the reluctant help of Diana Wayland (Rose Byrne), daughter of the now-deceased author of the prophecies.

Teen Wolf

Angle on Redbox

A teenage boy’s (Michael J. Fox) incredible werewolf powers improve the quality of his life in dramatic and hilarious ways.

While We’re Young

Angle on Redbox

Ben Stiller and Naomi Watts are Josh and Cornelia Srebnick, happily married middle-aged New York creative class members. They tried to start a family and were unable to – and have decided they’re okay with that. But as Josh labors over the umpteenth edit of his cerebral new film, it’s plain that he has hit a dry patch and that something is still missing. Enter Jamie (Adam Driver) and Darby (Amanda Seyfried), a free-spirited young couple who are spontaneous and untethered, ready to drop everything in pursuit of their next passion – retro board games one day, acquiring a pet chicken the next.

For Josh, it’s as if a door has opened back to his youth – or a youth he wishes he once had. It’s not long before the restless forty-somethings Josh and Cornelia throw aside friends their own age – including Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz in a sly supporting role – to trail after these young hipsters who seem so plugged in so uninhibited, so Brooklyn cool. ‘Before we met, Josh admits to Jamie, ‘the only two feelings I had left were wistful and disdainful.’

But is this new inspiration enough to sustain collaboration and friendship with a couple twenty years their junior? While We’re Young is an openly funny cross-generational comedy of manners about aging ambition and success, as well as a moving portrait of a marriage tested by the invading forces of youth. No film has better captured urban sophisticates’ weird, upended logic: the older ones embracing their iPads and Netflix, the young ones craving vinyl records and vintage VHS tapes. Powered by Stiller and Driver’s note-perfect lead performances and loose comic turns by Watts and Seyfried, While We’re Young is a complete pleasure to watch.
