The Hunt for Wilderpeople

Sam Neil’s best role, yes including Jurassic Park

YES

Release Date: March 31, 2016
Director: Taika Waititi
Language: English

Who should watch this movie: Fans of Thor: Ragnarok. I would say die-hard Taika Waititi fans, but they have all already seen this movie. 

When should you watch this movie: When you think you want to watch a light hearted comedy but you really just need therapy. When your roommate wants to watch a sad movie, but you can’t handle “Before Sunrise” right now. 

The sell: Taika Waititi has perfected the “funny-sad” movie and this is a prime example. Is it a comedy or is it a drama? Who knows, but it’s perfect. The premise is ridiculous and the characters even more so, thus the moments of heart catch you off-guard. It’s a high-speed chase through the New Zealand bush that explores the meaning of family. Does that make sense? No! But it works, and you’ll just have to take my word for it OR watch the damn movie.
