Storks

Storks delivers. Okay, now that I’ve gotten that over-used pun out of the way, I’ll move on. The movie is a solid, entertaining animated flick that will keep kids engaged without boring adults to tears. It’s not as good as Zootopia, but it’s way better than the likes of The Wild Life, Ratchet and Clank, Norm of the North, and other animated misfires lobbed at us this year, and I personally liked it better than The Secret Life of Pets. Storks relies on a solid formula of good story, wacky adventure, quirky characters, and a sweet exploration of the true meaning of friends and family. Awwwwww.

Butter

Yes, indeed. This is a movie about butter — a butter sculpting competition to be precise. Not something you see all that often, right? But I have not gone out of my way to search one out either. The movie gives you a glimpse into this odd state fair craft, through a somewhat funny little movie with a surprisingly all-star cast. Jennifer Garner plays Laura, wife of long-time celebrity state champion butter sculptor Bob Pickler (Ty Burrell from Modern Family.) When the butter powers-that-be decide that someone else needs to win and it is time for Bob to step aside, Laura’s world as VIP wife crashes around her. So she decides to enter the competition herself. But her biggest rival turns out to be a cute little, 10-year-old black foster child named Destiny (Yara Shahidi).
