Finally, we can see what everyone has been talking about!
Who says all action movies are made for men? "Fool's Gold" is an exception to that rule. The violence is minimal and tame, it's romantic (sort of) and mostly this is an excuse to watch People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive for 2005 run around without a shirt.
If you'd like to know what "Charlie Wilson's War" is all about, just take a look at Gust Avrakotos (Phillip Seymour Hoffman).
Movie publicity tends to promise far more than the movies actually deliver. That's why it's such a pleasant surprise when a movie actually pays off more than we expect. "The Great Debaters" is one of the few films of 2007 that underpromises and overdelivers.

Such a strategy could produce greatness (such as "Tommy" or "The Wall") or it could produce something like the dreadful 1978 "Sgt. Peppers" movie starring Peter Frampton and the Bee Gees (I apologize for reminding you of that).
When did you become aware of Samabaj, and how did the film project get launched?
"Mayan Blue" is an atypical Georgia film. Most of the crew either come from or live in North Georgia, yet the film was shot entirely in Guatemala and features an abundance of breathtaking underwater cinematography.
Sandwiched among the usual superheroes and science-fiction epics comes a very odd summer tentpole release, an extravagant, big budget adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's literary masterpiece, "The Great Gatsby," directed by Baz Luhrmann ("Moulin Rouge!", "Romeo + Juliet") and in 3-D.
Last week we looked at the upcoming movies for summer 2013 in the action and drama categories. This week, we finish the season's preview lineup with a peek at family flicks and movies to make us laugh.
