I've had some free time over the past week to watch some movies, and of course, time to share them with you guys. :)
One of the movies I watched was the much joked about The Tourist.
During an impromptu trip to Europe to mend a broken heart, Frank unexpectedly finds himself in a flirtatious encounter with Elise , an extraordinary woman who deliberately crosses his path. Against the breathtaking backdrop of Paris and Venice, their whirlwind romance quickly evolves as they find themselves unwittingly thrust into a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Although the critics and movie reviews weren't so good to The Tourist (not to mention Ricky Gervais and his jokes when he hosted the Golden Globes), I still thought it was a fun movie to watch. Did they deserve a Golden Globe for their performance? No, but why should it matter so much when they didn't even win, right???
The Tourist is not as action-packed as other Angelina Jolie or Johnny Depp films. It's not like Wanted or Salt or Mr. and Mrs. Smith, that's for sure... but I think that's the charm of this movie: it's a bit more mellow, but still exciting (and funny!). :)
Angelina Jolie looked absolutely beautiful! And her clothes and jewelry = wow!
It was refreshing to see her as kick-ass, but graceful and vulnerable at the same time.
Johnny Depp, on the other hand, played his character really well. He played every bit the college professor/ American tourist that his character is. He's funny and endearing -- I'm not a fan, but I loved him in this movie!
And even if you are not a big Angelina Jolie or Johnny Depp fan, just seeing Venice (and some of Paris) is worth sitting through this movie. :)
I want to go to Venice! ;)
I'm not gonna say anything more other than I don't regret seeing this movie. It was good. :D
Have you seen The Tourist? Any thoughts?
