Weekend Movie Reviews: The Immortals & More

by at . Comments

It's shaping up to be a busy weekend at the box office and our partners at Movie Fanatic have reviewed all the new offerings in advance of their Friday openings.

Let's get right to it, shall we?

The Immortals: Director Tarsem Singh's latest film, shot in spectacular 3D, presents a unique take on Greek mythology amidst a sweeping Renaissance landscape.

Theseus (Henry Cavill) is a poor man with stellar warrior skills thanks to intense training by a mysterious older villager. Mickey Rourke is King Hyperion, a vengeful ruler bent on not only all the land, but bringing down the Gods themselves.

The visual effects and cinematography are stunning. Check out the trailer for the film below, then read The Immortals review at Movie Fanatic for more insight.

J. Edgar: Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar is slow at times in typical Eastwood fashion, but with Leonardo DiCaprio as the title character, still ends up being a solid film.

Encompassing decades of this icon’s life, DiCaprio meets the challenge of a broad project and deserves an Oscar nomination for Best Actor as J. Edgar Hoover.

Jack and Jill: Adam Sandler movies hold a special place in many an audience member’s heart. Jack and Jill should land right in the wheelhouse of fan expectations.

It's a story of fraternal twins ... both played by Sandler. We don't really need to explain further, but follow the link now for Movie Fanatic's Jack and Jill review!
