Beware (the ending of) the 'Ides of March'

Taking a cue from the stars of this weeks two reviewed films, Natasha Curry says this "New Movie Friday" should really be called "Hot Man Friday." In honor of the men starring in our two flicks:

In "The Ides of March" Ryan Gosling plays a campaign manager for a promising presidential candidate played by George Clooney... but just days before the primary, Gosling finds out some information that could completely derail the campaign. Mr. Moviefone says this is less of a thriller and more of a solid political drama with an A+ cast. Including Gosling, Clooney, Paul Giamatti, Phillip Seymoure Hoffman, Marisa Tomei... But the ending left him cold. He says, "You kinda go... wait, is it over?"

"Real Steel" is set in the future where (when?) robots have replaced humans in the boxing ring. It stars Hugh Jackman who plays a dad tying to reconnect with his son through robot fisticuffs. Mr. Moviefone says, "It is kinda corny, it is a little bit dumb, but... it's a knockout compared to, let's say, "Transformers." As far as kids are concerned, he says, "This is a movie you'll take them to and you'll probably have a good time at too."

So will you be catching either of these flicks this weekend? Or maybe you're going to see "The Way" which also opens today. If you do go, come back and let us know what you thought! Mr. Moviefone isn't the only guy with an opinion right?

Speaking of Mr. Moviefone and his opinions, you can get more of him (and them) FAST at his speedy site sixsecondreviews.com.
