Not too much to talk about in the movie world in the last week, but this weekend is sure to be a good one with the release of THE AVENGERS. (Yes, I'm one of those dorky comic book girls.) I can't wait to see some of my favorite heroes up on the big screen (can I get a whoop whoop for Thor and Iron Man?!) I've also been watching the new Spider-Man cartoon on TV and I can't get enough of that man (but more on that obsession later.) I've been meaning to watch the Captain America movie since it was first released in theaters, but every time I push play I fall asleep before the opening DVD menus are over. (Boo.) But I did squeeze in movies starring two awesome guys this week! What did you see?
While I'm not usually big on straight-up action flicks, I have to admit: Jason Statham is a nice looking man. Plus, I love his voice! After being "dragged" to this movie by my boyfriend, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie. Would I watch it again? Maybe if it was on TV. But it was definitely a fun, thrilling movie that actually held my interest. 1 point for Statham!
When I first heard about a movie starring John Cusack (one of my great loves in life) as Edgar Allan Poe (a brilliant writer) I couldn't stop thinking, talking, or dreaming about it. I actually saw the movie this week, and while I enjoyed it, I was exceedingly underwhelmed. Don't get me wrong, the characters and actors were great, but there were some points where I just wanted the movie to move along. But I would recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Cusack, Poe, or both!
