The first one just came out and the second one is a year old.
The second movie was trashed by the critics last year but unfairly. They were looking for art while the movies aims to be merely entertaining. There is nothing wrong with entertainment. For a century, most movies have tried just to amuse their audience.
"The Tourist," with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie, has the elements of an old-time thriller. A mystery, a beautiful woman, a handsome man, a twist in the plot and gorgeous travel backdrops.
I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. Plus -- and this may sound odd -- I loved Angelina's makeup in the movie. Every shot lingered on her face and pros had spent hours making her look good. I found her appearance mesmerizing.
Have you seen anything good lately?
