Synopsis:

Lord Becket has teamed up with Davy Jones to eradicate all pirates in order to ensure the safety of the East Indian Company ships. Faced with extinction, the pirate lords from all over the world decide that their only chance in survival lies in their joining their forces and recruit whatever assistance they can find including that of Calypso, the goddess of the sea . To achieve the latter, a price must be paid, namely the liberation of Calypso from her Tia Delma entrapment following her Davy Jones betrayal. Her release however can only happen when all nine lords bring together in person their nine ‘pieces of eight’. This necessitates that all nine lords be present including Barbossa, killed earlier by Jack Sparrow, and Jack Sparrow himself, lately swallowed by the Kraken and transferred to Jones locker at ‘World’s End’ . Barbossa is resurrected by Tia Delma and leads the crew charged with the task of rescuing Jack Sparrow from World’s End.

Summary:

Jean Baptiste Grenouille early life has been nothing less than miserable.

The Descent Movie Review (8/10)

Summary: One year following a tragic accident that killed her husband and daughter, Sarah joins her girlfriends on a caving expedition in the Appalachian mountains. Two miles underground they realize that Juno, the adrenaline-junkie adventure leader, has decided to take them down an unexplored cave route hoping that the girls would be the first to discover and thus name this cave. Things don’t go as expected however. A tunnel collapses blocking the entry route, trapping the girls and leaving them struggling for survival amongst numerous dangers that include their physical, mental, and psychological strains, a colony of blood thirsty mutant predators and each other.

Review: ‘The Descent’ is a tightly knit, claustrophobically filmed, skillfully acted and masterfully directed horror movie that is likely one of the most terrifying movies that have graced our screens since ‘The Ring’. You literally find yourself immersed in this underground world, with labored breathing, racing pulse, and facial sweats, wondering with the girls what lies ahead at the next turn, tunnel or chamber.

Director Nick Marshall is the master of his domain and he knows it.

Summary: When Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett) headed to New York to visit his friend Nick Fisher, little did he know what awaits him. First he gets mugged, loses his wallet and IDs, and gets his nose broken. Second, Nick is nowhere to be found and there is no sign as to where he may be. Third, two gangs of mobsters looking for Nick confuse Slevin for him and drag him, one at a time, to see their feuding bosses, The Boss (Morgan Freeman) and The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley). Seems that Nick is in deep trouble. He owes The Boss $96,000 and The Rabbi $33,000 both from gambling bets. Slevin’s efforts to explain the case of mistaken identity are in vain. The Boss offers him a chance to wipe out his debts by killing The Rabbi’s son. The Rabbi himself offers to forgive the debt as well in return for him killing The Boss. To make things even more complicated, Mr. Smith (Bruce Willis) a high profile hired assassin seems to be pulling the strings behind the scenes on both sides. And finally there is detective Brikowski (Stanley Tucci) that is running 24 hour surveillance on both gangs and subsequently Slevin. The only bright side amidst all this chaos is Lindsey (Lucy Liu), Nick’s neighbor and the city coroner, who takes an immediate liking to Slevin. She also loves playing detective and decides to investigate Nick’s disappearance.
