Welcome to The Movie Diaries, the blog that I try to assist fellow movie goers to pick and choose a great movie to see that is either in theaters, on Netflix, or already on television or dvd. I love movies and everything that comes along with them so please read my reviews, check out some of the links, and feel free to leave any comments, questions or concerns I look forward to hearing other people's opinions on movies.
Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema, and MGM have announced the titles and release dates for director Peter Jackson's two-film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit'. The first film, titled 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey', will be released on December 14, 2012. The second film, titled 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again', is to be released the following year, on December 13, 2013.
Both films take place 60 years before 'The Lord of The Rings' trilogy, in middle-earth. These films will capture the journey of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins and will be shot in 3D.
The rum-loving, swashbuckler pirate that everyone loves is back and unfortunately duller than ever. Captain Jack Sparrow portrayed by the ever so brilliant three time Academy Award Nominee Johnny Depp is back for another appearance in the 4th installment of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise. ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ stars Depp, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, and Penelope Cruz and is directed by Rob Marshall.
The film focuses on the legendary fountain of youth, and how Capt. Jack Sparrow is desperately seeking its location. But, unfortunately he is not alone in this glorious quest. Both Barbossa (Rush) and Blackbeard (McShane) have their own expedition to find the notorious fountain and the beautiful, feisty Angelica (Cruz) has her own agenda as well. Can Captain Jack Sparrow discover the fountain before it’s too late??
Just wanted to inform you all, that I will be on vacation for a week and will unfortunately not be able to update The Movie Diaries with anything until I get back. Sorry for the inconvience and I promise to update like crazy as soon as I get back!!! Thanks for reading and check back next week for updates.

'Thor' is directed by Kenneth Branagh and written by Ashley Miller, Zack Stentz, Don Payne, J. Michael Straczynski, and Mark Protosevich. It is based off the comic book by Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby. The film stars Australian newcomer, Chris Hemsworth and Academy Award winners Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins. 'Thor' centers on an arrogant, ill-tempered warrior proclaimed as the "God of Thunder" who answers to the name of "Thor." Thor (Chris Hemsworth), is bravely stupid, and enjoys starting wars to defend his people, his name, and his family. He encompasses too much pride that it falters his character and his relationship with his family. When Thor declares War against their rival the Frost Giants of Jotunheim, his father Odin (Hopkins) decides that Thor's immature, irresponsible rash actions proves that he is not ready to be crowned King. In order for Thor to learn, Odin exiles Thor out of Asgard, deprives him of his powers and causes Thor to land on Earth. Can Thor survive in a world he is completely clueless about without his powers while his family has to fight the war he started in Asgard, or will his family lose their fight in battle and Thor will be lost with the rest of the mortals on Earth??
