You can find new releases at one of several Redbox kiosks in Ames, but if you aren't a huge fan of Redbox you could pick up these new flicks at Family Video, just in time for the weekend.
Moonrise Kingdom: An offbeat comedy with Bruce Willis, Edward Norton, Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, about 12 year olds who run away into the wilderness while authorities give chase. This was supposed to be good, but I confess to dozing in and out of sleep while watching it.
The Campaign: An in your face comedy starring Will Ferrell, Zach Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Dylan McDermott and Katherine LaNasa. This is about an entrenched sleazy congressman who gets challenged for his seat from a hapless guy who becomes a formidable candidate. This is crude, slapstick humor that keeps the laughs coming.
I've never heard of any of the others, but here they are:
The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation
Of Two Minds
Fire With Fire
Saints & Soldiers: Airborne Creed
A Beer Tale
3 Day Test
Love Actually (new to Redbox)
