THIS MONTH I REFUSE TO SEE...

THE TOURIST!


Shocking perhaps. Yes. But watching the trailer, it just fails to, I dunno, grip me as much as it maybe should. Don't get me wrong, I love Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. But I feel we've seen the whole 'beautiful woman sucks poor schmuck into a danger-ridden adventure including a boat chase in Europe and he ends up being a bad-ass for once in his life' type of thing. I'm not saying this will be an awful movie. In fact, I'm willing to bet you if I saw it I might even give it an open door. But I can tell right now I don't feel this will be an original tale, even if it on occasion has some exciting action (and I don't mean just between the two leads either, wink wink).

So go see this one if you want. I don't think you'll hate it, you may damn well love it. You may even be asking me, 'But Angry Charlie, why would you refuse to see this and not obvious flops like Yogi Bear, or Gulliver's Travels?' Truth is, when it comes to those flops I'm more curious about the end result and how the filmmakers handled them. With The Tourist, I feel as if I already know what I'm going to feel like exiting the theatre. Also, why is Angelina Jolie always the secretly, tough seductress? Isn't it obvious by looking at her that she's a heap load o' trouble? And why is that when Johnny Depp finally steps out of the make-up chair for a second he's weaker than an injured duckling? Whatever. point is, this ain't for me. Plus, anybody else thinkin' Tron Legacy far outweighs the hype of this flick?

The Tourist opens December 10th. Have fun.
