The summer blockbuster movie seasons has been hyped for months now. Even if you don't eagerly anticipate your next trip to the cinema, you probably are well-aware we have superheroes, a giant lizards, battling robots, and adventures in space all lined up for the next several months. The heavy diet of special effect spectacles can be sensory over-load and enough to make one hide away until Oscar season. Even though I'm all for an exciting blockbuster, there are times you want something different. Luckily, there are several character-driven stories that will be quietly making their way into cinemas this summer too. Over at the Collective Publishing, I look at a few of them that I think you should check out.
