I enjoy caper movies. While there are a multitude out there, my tastes tend to lean toward those with just a bit of a light edge to them like Oceans 11 and the recently released on DVD Now You See Me. When I began seeing the trailers for Now You See Me, I really wanted to see it. It appeared to be a caper movie with a different sort of twist–magic. Unfortunately, with my crazy year I never made it to see this one on the big screen, so when it came out this week on DVD it was at the top of my list to rent.

The animated movie Rio is about a rare blue Macaw named Blu who has been domesticated and lives quite happily in Minnesota with his human, bookstore owner Linda. Their life is turned upside down when a stranger named Tulio arrives from Brazil wanting to mate Blu with the only other remaining blue Macaw, named Jewel, to preserve the species. This means a trip to Rio for the pair and they aren’t sure what to think about it. After some convincing, Linda decides it’s their duty and off they go.
