This Weekend at the Movies


This weekend at the  movies, Feb. 04, 2011 – Feb. 11, 2011, I saw an action/adventure movie about cave explorers called Sanctum. This movie was in 3D at the local theater. I loved the 3D in this movie with all the underwater scenes looked amazing in 3D, first time I had seen  the 3D technology used under water and it was amazing.

SanctumSanctum

An intrepid team of explorers gets trapped in a complex underground cave system when a tropical storm makes it impossible to escape the same way they entered in this claustrophobic adventure drama from director Alister Grierson and executive producer James Cameron. Inspired by actual events, Sanctum tells the tale of Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh) a master diver intent on being the first to explore the Esa-ala cave system in the South Pacific. Shortly after Frank descends into the caves with a team that includes his teenage son, Josh (Rhys Wakefield), and expedition bank roller Carl Hurley (Ioan Gruffud), a massive storm collapses the entrance to the system, forcing the adventurers to plunge deeper into the darkness in search of an alternate exit. With supplies quickly dwindling and water levels rapidly rising, Frank and his team surmise that their best hope for survival is to follow an underground river thought to empty into the ocean. But given that few explorers have ever even dared set foot in the Esa-ala system, no one quite knows for sure whether they’re racing toward freedom, or another dead end. -MovieFone.com

The Dilemma

A lifelong bachelor struggles with the decision to tell his best friend that his wife is cheating on him with another man in this comedy from director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer. Inseparable since college, best friends Ronny (Vince Vaughn) and Nick (Kevin James) have recently gone into business together by starting their own engine design firm. Meanwhile, Ronny has begun dating Beth (Jennifer Connelly) and Nick is happily married to Geneva (Winona Ryder). The four friends couldn’t be more happy together until the day that Ronny catches Geneva with another man (Channing Tatum), and tells her that he can’t keep the news a secret from Nick. But when Geneva fires back that she will deny everything and shift the blame to Ronny, the decision over how to handle the sensitive situation becomes all the more difficult. Subsequently attempting to gather irrefutable evidence of the affair, Ronny uncovers a few secrets about his old pal Nick as well. And the timing couldn’t be worse either, because in just a few days Ronny and Nick are scheduled to give the presentation that could make or break their company. With the weight of the truth bearing down on Ronny’s conscience and no simple solution to his pressing dilemma, it all comes down to one crucial, defining moment that could make or break his friendship with Nick forever. -MovieFone.com

The Dilemma had an all star cast and they delivered, this was a funny movie.

No Strings Attached

Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher play two friends who agree to start a casual fling, thinking they can do it without any emotional baggage. Sounds easy enough, right? Sure — that is, until love gets in the way. From then on, they must decide whether they can actually make their newly defined friendship work. – MovieFone.com

In my personal opinion, I think that this is Ashton Kutcher’s best movie. I think that Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher have very good on screen chemistry. Oh and it is hilarious.

Just Go With It

In ‘Just Go With It,’ a plastic surgeon, romancing a much younger schoolteacher, enlists his loyal assistant to pretend to be his soon to be ex-wife, in order to cover up a careless lie. When more lies backfire, the assistant’s kids become involved, and everyone heads off for a weekend in Hawaii that will change all their lives.

This was a standard Adam Sandler movie. Hot women and good humor. One of those films that everyone should see.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
