Jurrassic World, Love & Mercy, Results and more open this week in Columbia

Dinosaurs of more than one sort are featured in this week’s new movies. We’ve got the re-animated type in Jurassic World and the musical type in the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy. And since it’s the summer there are a couple movie series happening. The Nickelodeon just kicked off their Southern Gothic Series and Regal Cinemas has their family-oriented Summer Movie Express.

Jurassic World

I really hope Chris Pratt brings some Burt Macklin style to his role.

Love & Mercy

Results

This movie is from writer/director Andrew Bujalski, known mainly as being the highest profile creator in the ‘mumblecore‘ genre.

Lambert & Stamp

I’m really looking forward to seeing this documentary about two of the early managers for The Who.

Get Your Holiday Movie On!

Found Footage Fest at Nickelodeon

With essentially everyone these days carrying around a device that can record, edit, and upload video the amount being created is staggering. According to YouTube, a ‘100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute!’. But only a few years ago, before iPhones and YouTube, the amount of video being created was surely large, but there was often no way for it to get seen by the world at large.

That’s what makes the Found Footage Fest, coming to the Nickelodeon this Saturday, so compelling. It’s a ‘one-of-a-kind event that showcases footage from videos that were found at garage sales and thrift stores and in warehouses and dumpsters across the country’. The event is a touring show co-hosted by Curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher. They take the audience on a comedic journey through some truly weird, wacky and perhaps unintentionally funny videos. If you’ve seen this show before, you can also rest assured that they’re bringing new and ‘fresh’ videos this time around.

Check out the trailer:

The Found Footage Fest is in town for one night only this Saturday at 11pm at the Nickelodeon. Get Tickets Here.
