This any easier for a 11 on the big screen I'm actually get more and let opts for online dot com movie -- -- -- -- crank it.
And we have a real variety of movies to spotlight this week.
First you take that -- is 42.
A dramatic and moving biopic telling -- life story of history making baseball hall of Famer Jackie Robinson just in what did you think of this now.
I thought 42 is a very good movie and what I liked most about it is that it's not melodramatic.
Actions speak so much louder than words in this film -- of course and absolutely deals with race and Jackie Robinson's rise from the negro leagues up through.
Being the first African American male.
Baseball player on the Brooklyn Dodgers.
And it deals with just -- horrendous things he had to deal with.
On the field and off the field and even with his own teammates on the Dodgers some of them were not happy all of that they were having.
An African American guy played baseball with them instead of really.
Ramming it down our throat about how terrible this is of course we know how terrible that it is.
They show us they don't tell us they show us and that I think speaks.
Great to the direction by Brian held -- Of course and it's his life story story about breaking barriers -- what do you feel then.
It being pulled in that way audiences can really take away from -- just learning his story.
What a struggle Jackie Robinson had to go through and Harrison Ford is -- as the owner of the Dodgers -- please branch Ricky and he Branch Rickey tells Jackie Robinson in the beginning he's like you are going to get.
So much hatred and -- -- thrown at you throw all of this and you have to stand strong you cannot fight back because as soon as you fight back.
It's all over Chadwick Bozeman who plays Jackie Robinson what a breakout performance for him he's excellent in this.
And just watching his restraint while all this stuff is thrown at him that you just feel so that he just -- -- like oh my god just.
Don't fight back but he doesn't and -- what a great and powerful performances from China opposed.
And now we -- -- and we meant it the other wide release film out this week yes it was only a matter of time.
Scary movie five this franchise now taking on -- -- -- camera paranormal genre.
We know it features plenty on hand as -- is gonna pop up and -- seen.
I including one scene with two always in the headlines celebs Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan we've been talking about -- for a while now and sharing the screen.
In the trailer and just in what are you hearing about the film.
-- well this is number five so if you.
I don't think you could accidentally stumble into a scary movie -- you know exactly what you're getting.
And so like you said there's a bunch of cameos in here but what I think is so.
Essential about these scary movie films and movies just like this they're like pop culture quizzes.
You have to know your pop culture and your movies in your genre films in order to get any joke and that's what they -- -- much money.
Someone tell me about that movie about this franchise and why it is so successful.
First horror movies make a lot of money they're -- To me and they make a lot of money so spoofing horror movies.
Trumps that all the scary movie films have.
Made over 800 million dollars that's almost a billion dollars in profit and their released by the Weinstein Co.
and as you know they they cater to more like.
Oscar -- type movies so.
All these movies can just.
Any of these Weinstein films for the rest of the year so they're not going away any -- I am not that many smaller limited release -- starting their on this week -- little wonder -- one that you wanted to -- -- life.
Right this is Terrence now it's new film it's a follow up to is tree of -- which came -- a few years ago which was.
You know it's a very divisive film and he's a very divisive filmmaker he is a very lyrical filmmaker I think his his cinematography is to die before he makes such beautiful looking -- But what they're actually about.
That's you know.
To the imagination -- to.
And if your reputation.
Yeah but so this film stars Ben Affleck to -- -- and Javier are -- it's his personal take on a love story.
Visual style but you have to just be warned if you can get into it and kind of understand what he's trying to do.
You may love it or just can be absolutely painful experience for.
Right I have a feeling as simple as you explained it it's a love story is that as you're watching it that's not necessarily you write something you know our figure out so basically you.
Didn't understand tree of life you may or may not exist -- don't.
Currently in here they're just they're they're look at collage of images and music reading and critics claim -- -- -- maybe sometimes.
I'm sure we've also.
The -- here you get the more obscure you get sometimes the mark playing yet.
Right I think one of the things -- parents relatives he alienates his audience.
And I don't think that's such a good thing I mean as an artist.
It doesn't matter you're making art -- for yourself.
But you're making movies that people are gonna go bye -- by ticket to go see so you don't really want to alienate your audience and I think that's what Terrence Malick sometimes.
Does yet it's hard to me it means streaming is one thing for you as a movie -- -- indeed talking about the cinematographer in a snap at you.
Angry at moviegoer out there is just looking it's a thumb I don't know if that's looking for the honest weren't on an island and watching snow.
It's -- it was after regardless.
But now the form online moviegoers shout out this time for forty -- at least partly it's just it's an inspirational.
Right on the film that everybody should see and it's a really great piece of history about you know -- in baseball history but civil rights history as well.
Of course and a very different ball -- Harrison right he's a movie star but this is more of a character actor's role and he.
Fits it perfectly he does such a great job and baseball season.
Yet baseball season's on its way so this is great way to take -- off.
-- that's today's form on line on the big screen from more -- all of these movies and interviews with the stars -- -- in theaters on fox or online dot com.
Where he'll -- -- parents Fuller of these.
