Mr. Moviefone reviews 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,' 'The Adventures of Tintin,' 'War Horse,' 'We Bought A Zoo'
There's a ton goin' on at the movies. It's one of the most anticipated movies of the year, by me, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
This remake of the Swedish film version of the popular book pairs a damaged, punked-out computer hacker with a discredited journalist who investigate a 40-year-old murder within a high-profile family. The film stars Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig and is rated R.
The Reel Deal: Director David Fincher delivers a dark, hypnotic, graphic thriller (this thing is rated R for a reason kids) with a Golden Globe worthy performance by Rooney Mara. I'm in.
A classic comic strip is brought to life for a whole new generation in "The Adventures of Tintin."
This 3D motion capture animated movie from director Steven Spielberg follows the young Belgian reporter Tintin as he races to recover a powerful artifact before it falls into the wrong hands.
The Reel Deal: Lost somewhere between live action and animation, I like "The Adventures of Tintin," but the motion capture makes Tintin look like plastic boy. I'm out.
From a book to Broadway, and now the big screen, it's "War Horse."
A young soldier in WWI is torn apart from the special horse he captured and tamed. The story follows the horse, Joey, throughout the war and shows how his loyalty and friendship transforms lives on the front lines and beyond.
The Reel Deal: An epic melodrama between a boy and his horse as only Steven Spielberg can tell it. I think you're gonna want to jump aboard for the heart-pounding ride of "War Horse." I'm in.
Matt Damon takes a walk on the wild side in "We Bought a Zoo."
Based on a true story, Damon plays a man, who after his wife dies, quits the city and his job and buys a zoo in hopes of bringing his family closer together. Co-starring is Scarlett Johansson.
The Reel Deal: With one of the worst movie titles of the year, Matt Damon and cast deliver an OK family drama, but instead of buying the zoo, I say wait to rent it instead. I'm out.
