Tuesday's With Movies: 3/15/11

The Fighter: What's not to love? A sports movie that was nominated for an Oscar. That also happen to take home a pair of supporting actor Oscars from Christian Bale and Melissa Leo. And it also stars Mark Wahlberg and Amy Adams. I am in all the way. This is one I wish I was able to see in the theater, but wasn't able to get out and see it. Thankfully, I haven't heard any spoilers about the actual film, so I am pretty psyched to see it.

Hereafter: I am not 100% sure what this film is all about. During previews I got a whole What Dreams May Come feel, but according to the plotline this is a movie that follows three different people that have nothing to do with each other and somehow there stories will come together somewhere in the end. I really like films that can pull those off well, so I will definitely be giving this one a try.

The Switch: Haven't heard great things about this film, but I enjoy Jason Bateman and I can deal with Jennifer Aniston. Apparently, Bateman is best friends with Aniston, who decides to get a sperm donor for a child - by accident Bateman loses the 'donation' and is forced to donate his own. Sounds a bit far fetched, and doubt this will be great, but I will at least check it out.

  1. "Thankfully, I haven't heard any spoilers about the actual film." That made me laugh. It's based on real life - how could it be spoiled?

    Yeah, Hereafter is definitely in the Babel school of intertwining stories. Most didn't like it; I kinda did, though for some personal reasons, mostly.

    No, The Switch is not very good at all. It's the least surprising movie you'll see all year. That said, it is hard to resist Bateman's charms.
