Superbad offers an up-close-and-personal revelation of what really goes on with high school guys. The movie features two hilarious best friends (basically the epitome of pre-Carnegie Mellon guys), who will have to separate for college, and are currently engaged on an endless quest to become “cool.” The cuddling scene alone makes Superbad worth watching.

The highlight of this week’s dollar movie selection is the latest in the Harry Potter series. Featuring an improved (but not new) cast, the trio of wizards offer a perfect example of puberty. Continuing the plot of Harry’s never ending struggle with He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, this fifth film is a step up from the previous Potter films, but has yet to meet the standards of the books.

All you need to know about this movie is that it is based on a Stephen King novel, telling the story of a writer picked up from the scene of a car crash by a woman claiming to be his biggest fan. After watching the movie, you will never be able to look at a nurse the same way again, nor will you take your ankles for granted.
