Slow West

Wee LaF for the July 10 Weekend - LaF 58

LaF is back with another Weekend Entertainment Edition as the L-Train and Mr. Two-Frames look at the new box office releases for the July 10th weekend. Opening in wide release, is the animated kids flick Minions, which is a spinoff to the Despicable Me film series. The film explores what the Minions were up to before they met Gru. It is also one of the L-Train's best eagerly anticipated films of the year.

Opening in fairly large release is the sci-fi action thriller Self/Less starring Ryan Reynolds, Matthew Goode, and Ben Kingsley. The movie is about a rich old man who buys the opportunity to switch bodies with a younger man. Unfortunately, the process is not without complications and soon it is a race against time to figure what the corporation that preformed the operation is really up to. Look for full reviews of both films on a future episode of LaF. 

The guys have streaming picks of films for Amazon Prime and Netflix. Both film selections have been reviewed on earlier episodes on LaF. After you watch the films, go listen to our reviews.
