In this week’s Movie Beat, Ralph reviews Black Swan, Dead Awake, All Good Things, I Love You Phillip Morris, and The Warrior’s Way.
Mila Kunis and Natalie Portman play ballerinas who enter into a twisted, erotic relationship.
It stars Rose McGowan, Amy Smart, and Nick Stahl. It’s about a depressed assistant at a funeral parlor (good times – this is Bean’s kind of movie), who is reunited with the love of his life, who he abandoned 10 years earlier. It turns out their relationship still isn’t perfect, believe it or not.
All Good Things:
Opening this weekend in limited release. This stars Ryan Gosling, Kirsten Dunst (and her teeth), Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kristen Wiig. A gentleman who is going to inherit a New York real estate dynasty falls in love with a beautiful girl on the wrong side of the tracks.
I Love You Phillip Morris:
This is Jim Carey and Ewan McGregor playing gay prisoners who fall in love. No one wanted to release this – it escaped. Jim Carey plays a con artist who committed the ultimate con, playing a lawyer to try to get his mother out of jail.
The Warrior’s Way:
Kate Bosworth, Danny Huston, Geoffrey Rush, and Jang Dong-gun – a warrior assassin has to battle ninjas in the Old West. Some Asian dude fights a bunch of other Asian dudes.
