Movies for this week

Every time Mo “Silvertongue” Folchart  (Brendan Faser) reads a story out loud, a character from the story magically enters our world. And, in exchange, something from our world must enter the book in return. This becomes a problem as Mo loses his beloved wife Resa (Sienna Guillory) into a book called Inkheart. Meanwhile, the scoundrels and villains of Inkheart are let loose upon earth. But to stop the villains, reunite his family, and restore balance to the world will require the of his daughter Meggie (Eliza Bennett) and the magical Dustfinger (Paul Bettany). Cinematically fun and interesting concept help this tide over for Harry Potter fans. Unfortunately, the script is a bit convoluted and inefficient; but, for those in need of a fairy tale and fantasy fix, this might just do the trick. Inkheart is rated PG.

Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
The third installment of the vampires versus werewolf tale continues to explain the centuries-old spat between the two races. This time the Lycans, former slaves, rise up against the aristocratic vampires, but who will survive? Underworld: Rise of the Lycans is rated R.
