Charlie St. Cloud

Charlie St. Cloud Movie Poster

Just from watching the trailer I am already reaching for the kleenex, there has been quite a few Drama Romances out there lately but I really think this one is going to be special. I don’t think I can wait until July 30th. So I think I may just have to read the book.

Zac Efron, Amanda Crew, Donal Logue, Charlie Tahan, Kim Basinger, Ray Liotta

Based on an acclaimed novel, Charlie St. Cloud is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love. Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar® winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it. After his high–school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own. [apple]

Avatar … I want to be blue too!

☆☆☆☆

Avatar

I cannot even begin to describe how epic this movie is. First, I saw it normal, then the second (later that week) I saw it in 3D. Overall for the 3D aspect – this is the only non-positive comment I will ever make about it – is that I would rather watch it normal vs. 3D. I just didn’t add much for me and I don’t like wearing those glasses. Moving on this movie is genius, yes it has a plot that we are comfortable with the classic cowboys v the natives, oppression story line. However, Avatar takes place on another planet with…blue people and it is better than you can imagine!

“All-time worldwide grosses? Cameron may well be about to kick his own ass: Avatar is up to No. 2, at $1.3 billion, with Titanic’s $1.8 billion certainly well within reach, particularly if it continues to perform as well as it has (it earned more than $150 million outside North America last weekend). And there’s no reason to expect that it won’t.”- FlickFilosopher.com

It’s cool when a director tries to beat a record for number one all time grossing, but it is hilarious when he tries to beat himself. That right there is the mark of a true genius!

I have 10 words that summarize my love of scores and this movie and I truly will go to the grave still believe that –  “James Cameron and James Horner can’t procreate enough!”
