May 20, 2011


Now in your movie-showing establishments:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Director: Rob Marshall
Starring: Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane
Good if you want to see: Johnny Depp once again put on that special eyeliner costume that makes Disney money.

Midnight in Paris
Director: Woody Allen
Starring: Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Marion Cotillard
Good if you want to see: Owen Wilson be Woody Allen, in Paris.

Louder Than a Bomb (limited)
Director: Greg Jacobs, Jon Siskel
Good if you want to see: an inspiring documentary following Chicago-area high schoolers prepping for the world's largest youth poetry slam. This just might be the last documentary Oprah approves before she dies next week.

Cost of a Soul (limited)
Director: Sean Kirkpatrick
Starring: Chris Kerson, Will Blagrove
Good if you want to see: wounded Iraq veterans returning home to find their crime-riddled home even worse than when they left it, which is so depressing I don't even want to think about it anymore.
