Trailer for "The Three Musketeers"

It could have potential, but the Disney version is still my favorite.

Johnny Depp and Martin Scorsese??

Apparently, Johnny Depp is in Martin Scorsese's new 3D picture called "The Invention of Hugo Cabret." He is supposed to be a producer, but it looks like he may have a cameo as a street artist. I'm thrilled to see Depp part of the Scorsese world. They are both talented and should have worked together sooner.

New "The Hangover: Part II" Poster

I don't know what's scarier- the monkey or the wolfpack. I'm looking forward to this one and I hope it lives up to the original. What about you?

New "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" Poster

Finally, the end is near. I'm over "Harry Potter," but I will say the poster is pretty cool. What do you think?

New "Captain America" Trailer

I don't have a desire to see this film. I don't care for Chris Evans and it doesn't look that appealing. Who knows, maybe it will surprise me. What do you think?

Losing A Legend: Elizabeth Taylor

On March 23, we lost one of the last of Hollywood's golden talent. Elizabeth Taylor died from congestive heart failure. She was 79.

Elizabeth Taylor was beautiful, but she was also an incredible actress. My first encounter with one of Taylor's films was in my Literature and Film class. We were studying Tennessee Williams' "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." I remember thinking to myself that she was the first woman that could carry a lead role. I felt like she stole the spotlight from Paul Newman. She was never overpowered by her leading men as she could always hold her own.

A few years later, I saw "Cleopatra." The role was made for her and anyone who thinks of Cleopatra thinks of Taylor. Her sex appeal, fashion and makeup made her the first million dollar actress. Sadly, I have not seen all of Taylor's films, but I'm eager to see "BUtterfield 8" and "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf" which are the two films that she won an Academy Award for.

She will be missed as I believe there's no one in Hollywood like her.

New Trailer for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

A few questions are answered in the new "Pirates" trailer. What happened to The Black Pearl? And why mermaids? I guess we will find out on May 20! What do you think?

New Character Posters from "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"

Finally, we get a glimpse of the other players in "P4." I really like the pic of Blackbeard holding the skull of Captain Jack. What do you think?

"Rango" Saddles Up For Success

In a world that is obsessed with 3D animation, I wondered if Johnny Depp's new flick "Rango" would survive. The film is now the top film of the year. So what made people go see this new take on the wild wild west?

It's not in 3D. Not every film has to be in 3D. I thought "Rango" was one of the best animated films I've seen in a long time. The precision and expertise to get each scene perfect is noticeable. Gore Verbinski used emotion capture to create the film opposed to having each cast member speak behind a microphone. Basically, he had the cast act out the film. The use of emotion capture is present because the characters are more realistic and human.

I read a few reviews that said the story lacked heart. In the west, people fought for money. In Rango's world its water, which is needed to persevere. It's a story about a chameleon who (ironically) can change into anyone he wants to be, but in turn finds his true self. It's witty, different and yes it has heart. Anyone who has an imagination will find a connection with this film.

We all know I'm excited for this one!

Five Reasons to Give "Just Go With It" A Chance

Many may think Adam Sandler makes the same kind of movies, which usually involve a man having a midlife crisis. But I was quite surprised with "Just Go With It." Here are my five reasons to give this movie a shot.

5) Adam Sandler is funny. He may make some of the same jokes, but in this film he is refreshingly funny.

4) The new term for having to poop-"going to have a Devlin."

3) Nicole Kidman and Dave Matthews were excellent. Who knew they could actually be funny. It was nice to see a serious actress like Nicole Kidman in a comedy.

2) The kids played by Baliee Madison and Griffin Gluck bring more comedy with their blackmailing approach.
1) The chemistry between Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler. They are so good and work so well together that I just couldn't wait for them to fall in love.

"Tangled" is Twisted Fun

Remember the magic and excitement that surrounded old Disney animated features? I remember the singing and the fun sidekicks. I remember falling in love with the story and the scenery. The last good Disney animated feature was "The Lion King" and after that they all seemed to fade away as Pixar progressed. In 2009, "The Princess and the Frog" finally brought back the old Disney flame.

When I went to see Disney's 50th animated feature "Tangled" based off of Rapunzel, I was sure it was going to be boring. I was wrong.

From beginning to end, you are pulled into Flynn Rider and Rapunzel's world. Rapunzel yearns for freedom and a chance to see the world away from her tower. She finds her freedom and dreams in Flynn. The music is wonderful thanks to Alan Menken, who is no stranger to Disney fairy tales. It is a wonderful hearting warming story for all ages and is beautiful in 3D. I highly recommend going to see "Tangled."
