Rating: R Stars: Michael Fassbender, Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, Ruben Blades Writer: Cormac McCarthy Director: Ridley Scott Distributor: Twentieth Century Fox Release Date: October 25, 2013 Director Ridley Scott and writer Cormac McCarthy are masters of craft who should not be underestimated.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Johnny Depp, Peneolpe Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane Writer: Screenplay by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, Characters by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie,Jay Wolpert Director: Rob Marshall Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 20, 2011 PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN is a film series that I think could probably just keep going like the Energizer Bunny. People didn’t react as kind to the last couple of PIRATES sequels as well as they did the first film though. Complaints concerning films two and three (DEAD MAN’S CHEST and AT WORLD’S END)were that there were too many storylines […]Read On »
