Cinema Misfits, Episode 51: Beginners, Wanderlust, Submarine, and The Hunger Games

6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.″

Beginners.  Combined with The Beaver and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Beginners completes last year’s terrifying trilogy of quirk.″

Wanderlust.  There’s not a lot of wandering going on here–unless the title refers to what your mind does during the film.″

Submarine.  Another indie film torpedoed by too much quirk?  Or does it get the mix of oddball characters and idiosyncratic storytelling just right?″

The Hunger Games.  Like Twilight, Lionsgate’s next big movie franchise is based on a successful series of young adult novels.  Which makes you wonder, are there any books written for adults these days that are worth turning into movies?″

Thanks for listening!  We’ll be back in two weeks.
