This week we have 4 different movies.My Pick Of the Week will be---
1-Silver Linings Playbook:This movie has been running in limited cinemas for a couple of weeks and it has racked up excellent reviews.Also this is the first movie in almost 30 years to get nominated in all 4 acting categories for the Oscars.Directed by David Russell (the Fighter) ,this is a comedy/romance/drama movie and has a rating of 91%.This is RJG's PICK OF THE WEEK
2-Mama is a horror movie produced by Guillermo del Toro.The story is about 2 girls who are found in the forest after their mother was murdered.No reviews are out for this movie but after seeing the short movie on which this movie was based on ,Mama might turn out to be good.
3-Broken City features A-List Actor ,Mark Wahlberg & Russel Crowe.Directed by Allen Hughes (Book of Eli) ,this is crime thriller.This looks like a movie with nothing great to offer ,its not being promoted very well either.No reviews out yet.
4-Finally we have The Last Stand ,which is action superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger's first lead movie after 2003's Terminator 3.This action movie is looking to make a big debut ,but it also looks like nothing new or innovative.No reviews out yet.
