Spring is in the air. So take your sweetie or lover or stranger from the bus stop to a movie. The week a fantasy movie mixed with Mary Jane, a remake that I think could do well, and another trip to Narnia is in store for your living rooms.
These are the movies that were released on Friday, April 8th, 2011
Your Highness - Rated RJames Franco his a prince with an arrogant brother (Danny McBride). They are on a quest to save their fathers kingdom with the help of the always hot Natalie Portman. This is director of the movie Pinapple Express. The real secret is it is written by Danny McBride who is the slacker comedy it guy right now.Verdict - You had me at a half naked Natalie Portman. I will be watching this alone. Hanna - Rated PG-13Eric Banna is teaching his young daughter (The Lovely Bone’s Saoirse Ronan) what every father teaches his daughter: how to kill. Her father sends her on an assassination mission and Cate Blanchett is hot on her trail. This looks like a fun action movie that gets on my radar with the additoin of academy award winner BlanchettVerdict - I do not think Hanna will set the world on fire but the cast is strong enough to garner a viewing.Arthur - Rated PG-13In a remake of the 1981 movie that made Duddley Moore a star, Russell Brand plays a millionaire playboy. He has to decide between marrying Jennifer Garner and inheriting tons of money or being with a peasant (Gerta Gerwig) and getting nothing. Is this even in question? This remake is something I actually want to see because I am not sick of Russell Brand yet. Verdict - This remake might actually live up to the original but I do have some reservations about some one screwing this upSoul Surfer - Rated PGThis is a story based on a true story where a 13 year old surfer looses her arm to a shark attack. That right there means if this movie is reasonably made it will touch you. In a good way. Helen Hunt and Dennis Quiad play her parents and then I am soldVerdict - Even though I expect to me emotionally manipulated a bit, Soul Surfer could turn in to a inspiring film.Box Office Top 5 Movies In The Country1. Hop – Rated PG2. Source Code – Rated PG-133. Insidious – Rated PG-134. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules Rated PG5. Limitless - Rated PG-13Am I disappointed Hop is the #1 movie in america? A little. Am I Surprised? No. Given the subject matter I figured it would probably do well. I am surprised that Insidious did break the top 5 and I hope that it does well enough to allow its creators to make more films.

What award did it win? The Golden Rasberry for Worst Supporting Actress (Jessica Alba). Critics were not kind to this one but it made alot of money. That has to mean something doesn't it? . . . . Not really.The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader - Rated PG
Despite mixed reviews I still want to check out this third trip to Narnia. I have enjoyed the other two so why not this one?Tron: Legacy - Rated PGTron Legacy is a great way to kill a couple hours. It is action packed and the visuals are amazing. Jeff Bridges does what Jeff Bridges adds to any movie. He adds the heart that takes this new Tron to another level.Next week the begining of the end of Harry Potter on DVD, a animated movie in Rio, and Wes Craven has one last shot before I write him off for good. YOUR ON NOTICE CRAVEN.Credit – IMDB.com
