THE WOLFMAN   2.12.2010

The WolfmanInspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Oscar® winner Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Lawrence Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed. – apple.com/movies

I dig in-flight movies!

The Young Victoria

Review: The Young Victoria (finally!)

☆☆☆☆ I’ am so relieved I finally got to see it. On a flight from Lima to Rome. I crammed in as many movies as I possibly could! When I saw The Young Victoria I almost jumped out of my seat but instead I settled in for what came to be one of my top ten favorite period films! This movie in comparison to Joe Wright’s Pride and Prejudice doesn’t take the cake but it definitely takes a few good bites out of it! This movie is elegant and simple. You are sucked into their world. You end up feeling like you want what they want just as much! Yes it is a movie, but it does not glamorize anything. It’s a real story, a real life. I loved it and the filming was done really well! This is will be added to my DVD library muy pronto! To top it off Emily Blunt did great without over doing it! and he was nominated for a Golden Globe:  Best Performance by an Actress in a Drama Motion Picture, and a British Independent Film award as Best Actress! and as opposed to Pride and Prejudice where you hate him as Mr. Wickham you love him as he portrays Prince Albert! and last but not least Mark Strong and Paul Bettany are a great addition as peripheral characters.

Love Happens

☆☆☆ Previews looked good but you are left wondering if it is going to have a HEA (Happily Ever After) Ending. Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart compliment each other well. There are of course quirky parts but the tone of this movie feels real. Life isn’t always easy. I don’t think I would buy the movie but it was definitely worth watching. Plus it had a really good soundtrack, definitely Seattle inspired with a song by Death Cab for Cutie.

The Young Victoria

The Young VictoriaI’ am so mad that this movie did not get more publicity. I remember seeing it in a trailer last spring and that was that I never heard of it again! Im praying to god that the small independent theater will at least show it. Love the Magic Lantern! Anyways there are some big names on the cast list. Emily Blunt, Rupert Friend, Paul Bettany, Mark Strong and the best part is that it is a period film (favorite).
