Black Swan

Black Swan Takes a Dive

IF YOU LIKE ARTSY, SYMBOLIC FLICKS, CHECK IT OUT AT REGULAR PRICE – OTHERWISE WAIT FOR CABLE.

The Black Swan is like a friends with benefits relationship – it left me with mixed emotions. While I can’t say that I enjoyed the film, I cannot say unequivocally that I disliked it. If you like interpreting the hidden meanings and symbolism in films; this is the movie for you. If you like the chase and want to cut to it without having to use a decoder ring, you may want to skip it.

As usual, director Darren Aronofsky(Requiem of a Dream, The Wrestler) put his dark imprint on the ballet world. He examines the life of Nina (Natalie Portman), a young ballerina, who is trying to prepare for the role of her life. Portman does a great job in the role and is pretty believable. If you’re into films rich with symbolism – you’ll love it. The problem is that there are a ton of unanswered questions in the end. Great for debates but horrible if you like a happy ending.

Tourist

The Tourist – What A Trip

FULL PRICE ADMISSION MOVIE HERE! NO MATINEE REQUIRED!

What a surprise! Angelina Jolie has done it again! Another movie stamped with suspense, action and lots of sexy. Co-star Johnny Depp uses his uncanny acting skills to pull off another one of his unique characters to make this movie a must see. This movie proves that things are not always what they seem. One minute you feel your ahead of the plot and know whats going to happen next and then the director takes you in a completely different direction. Pack your bags, because your about to go on a trip with The Tourist.
