Yay for this week’s movie blog!
The Men Who Stare At Goats
This comedy is based on a non-fiction novel written by Jon Ronson about a reporter who stumbles upon a secret branch of the military that employs paranormal powers in their missions.
It stars George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Spacey and several other big names. However, with the reviews I have read, you either think it’s a blah movie, or you think it’s awesome. Honestly, anytime that Ewan is in something, I AM DOWN!!
Check out the trailer here.
The Blind Side
A touching story starring Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron that depicts another true story about a teenager who is living on his own in the streets. He befriends a woman and her family and comes to stay a night which ends up with him living with the family and becoming a part of it. As they live and support each other, not only does the teen grow into his potential as a football player and in school, but the family members learn more about themselves.
It looks super sweet and cute and I know that some of my friends almost cry every time they see the commercial. Here’s the trailer.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Heath Ledger’s final film is about a traveling theatre company that offers more than one expects. Dr. Parnassus gives his audience a choice between light and joy and darkness and gloom. However, he himself has a very dark secret.
Because filming was still going on when the tragedy of Ledger’s passing occurred, his character, Tony, goes through “transformations” where he is played by actors such as Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law.
It looks rather promising and OF COURSE I want to see it! C’mon, Heath Ledger was awesome, and so is Johnny Depp and co. Total hotties, too! Here’s the trailer below. Check it out =]
Sticky floors and tears,
