Welcome Back to Rated D!
This week we went to see a movie called "The Five-Year Engagement". SPOILER ALERT: A young groom-to-be struggles to keep his sanity while his fiance continues to push back the wedding date in order to jumpstart her career.
Recommendation - 4 out of 5 - Good for a Date Night
This Week's List.. Viva Mexico!
Movies that visit Mexico in honor of Cinco de Mayo!
1. Desperado (1995) - The second and best in the "El Mariachi" trilogy. Who doesn't want to watch Antonio Banderas hunting down drug dealers in Mexico in search of the man who killed the woman he loved with nothing but a sneaky librarian played by Salma Hayek and a guitar case full of weapons? You show me that person and I'll show you a liar... the liar might not be the same person but I'm sure I can find one.
2. From Dusk til Dawn (1996) - The first hour of the movie is a taut thriller about two fugitives making their way to Mexico in a hijacked Winnebago. The second hour of the movie is a cheesy, action-packed vampire flick with some of the worst special effects you ever did see. You have to give it credit though because if vampires were going to attack, it would happen exactly like this. It would come completely out of nowhere.
4. No Country for Old Men (2007) - There's virtually no music underscoring the scenes in this western-noir but still, the chase scenes are more intense and more exciting than most big budget action movies. There's definitely a few complaints most people have about the ending, but (and I rarely say this) the rest of the movie is so good it's hard to complain.
