Netflix Instant: TV and Movie Picks

By this time next week, we will be deep into our Dallas International Film Festival coverage. We will be bringing you coverage of all the local buzz and films showing. One of our favorites from 2012 is one of my recommendations this week, along with a couple other random films that I've enjoyed or can't wait to watch. 


 This was one of our favorites from a couple years ago. It's a wonderful coming-of-age story about two boys who come across a fugitive, played by McConaughey. He is fantastic as this mysterious drifter, and this film ended up being a stand out at DIFF in 2012. Check out my cohort's review.

CENTER STAGE is THE dance movie that started the dance flick craze. I know many don't really care for those types of films, but even if the acting is bad and the story is cliche, which they normally are, there's always amazing dance numbers to make up for it. I completely forgot there was a sequel I know what I'm watching this weekend! 

Before Anne Hathaway became insufferable, she sometimes acted in small, independent films. This is one of my favorites of hers. She plays an estranged sister who is home for a family wedding. The acting is fantastic, and it has one of the most fun looking weddings I've seen on film.
