Star Trek Into Darkness, The English Teacher and Black Rock are THE movies to see this week
Star Trek Into Darkness
IT’S BACK! IT’S BACK! IT’S BACK!
As you can see, we’re only slightly excited about the return of the new generation of Star Trek.
The 12th installment in the S.T. franchise and the sequel to 2009’s Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness sees Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg and the bulk of 2009’s cast reprising their roles, which basically means YAY!
Directed by J.J.Abrams, Into Darkness is filled with action and suspense, awesome special effects and sexy folks galore and is hard to sum up in one little post, but we’ll try.
Basically, the crew of the Enterprise finds out that this installment’s bad guy is where they’d least expect him – within their organization. Captain Kirk, although he’s been demoted, is charged with leading a manhunt to a war zone where they must capture the villain, who is more machine than man. Awesome? Yes.
The English Teacher
Featuring Julianne Moore, Lily Collins and Nathan Lane, The English Teacher is a comedy about just that, and English teacher.
Linda Sinclair – played by Moore – teaches at a high school in a small town in Pennsylvania and although she’s popular with all her students and is super passionate about her job, she lives a simple life alone.
That's when one of her former students moves back to town after failing as a playwright in NYC and while his father pressures him to become a lawyer, she tries to pull him in the opposite direction and get him to put on his play at the school. Finally, something is happening and maybe Sinclair won’t be by herself forever.
The English Teacher is funny, it’s charming and it’s an all-around good time.
Although Black Rock has received mixed reviews – with some of them being really nasty and negative – for anyone who’s a fan of horror films and thrillers, you won’t get anything better, at least not this week.
Katie Aselton, Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth star in the film written and directed by husband and wife duo Mark Duplass and Katie Aselton.
When Bosworth’s character invites her two childhood friends to a remote island they visited in their youth in an effort to reunite their posse, the stage is set for the suspense and killing to begin – it is a deserted island after all.
The ladies meet three hunters/veteran soldiers who they soon learn have been dishonorably discharged from the military. Long story short, one of the ladies accidentally kills one of the men when he tries to force her to have sex with him and that’s when the remaining two guys decide to hunt down the trio of friends and punish them. What will happen? Only one way to find out…
