Welcome back to "Movies To See". If this is your first time, basically what I do is offer a brief summary along with a trailer of the week's movie releases I think are worth seeing. Simple as that. Just trying to spread the word on some movies with my own insight as well as put you on some films that might not get as much buzz but are still well worth seeing.
I'm a huge boxing fan and have been looking forward to this one for a while. Mark Wahlberg plays boxer Micky Ward during the 1980s, the movie is an early look at him before he went pro and trained by his half-brother who is portrayed by Christian Bale. Amy Adams also appears as Ward's love interest, so the cast is star studded and should prove to be a box-office hit. Behind the camera is David O. Russell who's last hit was I Heart Huckabees, a movie he did with Wahlberg. Maybe the reunited pair can garner some Oscar buzz once again?
Johnny Depp plays Frank, a recently heart-broken man who travels to Venice in order to getaway from it all and ends up running into the beautiful Angelina Jolie who plays Elise. First off...Johnny Depp doesn't get heartbroken, he breaks hearts. Secondly, I wish during my breakups I can just go to Venice and run into someone as hot as Angelina Jolie. The celebrities have all the luck, don't they? Anywho, this action-comedy has all the fixings with a twisted plot, action, and a eye dropping stunts along with two good-looking and talented stars doing what they do best. Depp as the bumbling but charming hero in distress and Jolie in her usual ass-kicking and sultry role. With the background being in Italy, this movie has the making of being a visual sideshow filled with laughs and thrills. In simpler terms, "Day and Knight" another movie I enjoyed but with reversed gender roles.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
We pick up on the story with Lucy and Edmund Pevensie's return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader heading towards the Edge of the World to complete their quest. Of course along the way they battle mythical creatures such as dragons and dwarves that try and stop them from making it to their final destination.
