The Reel Sh!t

When it comes to movies, we cut the crap

THE WARRIOR’S WAY & BLACK SWAN

The weekend is just around the corner.  With the cool, crisp weather, there is no better way to spend an afternoon than inside a warm theater.  Plus, it’s a great opportunity for cuddling.  So after spending those hard-earned dollars shopping for Christmas presents, go drop a few more at the theater.

The Warrior’s Way – This movie resembles that of Ninja Assassin, except for the whole western approach.  Yang (Dong-gun Jane), a “warrior assassin,” must lie low in the American Badlands.  He has betrayed his fellow warriors by declining to accept a mission and now the tables have turned.  Those who once fought side-by-side with him are now rallying in an attempt to kill him.  Sounds like fun.

Black Swan (Playing in Limited Theaters) – There is Oscar buzz circulating around Natalie Portman’s performance in this dramatic thriller.  Portman, who plays Nina, is vying for the role of prima ballerina in the production of “Swan Lake.”  A shoe-in for the role, tensions rise when a new dancer, Lily (Mila Kunis), threatens her chances.  The two develop a dark friendship that’s both psychological and disturbing.
