Top-5 movies of the week - 25.05 - 01.06

After the Cannes Film Festival is over, I have more time for writing about other movies and events. I'm returning to my recently started topic. One of the hottest releases of this spring is already in our cinemas and this movie has big chances to get a great box office, but also there is a couple of movies, which can be interesting for you.

1. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides"
Of course, this movie is the most expected of spring season. I'm a fan of the trilogy, but since the cast has changed, I didn't think that the 4th movie can be as interesting and impressive as first ones. Still there are Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush, who saved this movie. I didn't watch it in 3D, but it is made visually very good, with nice views, special effects and costumes. The one thing, which I really dislike in it, is the love story between priest and mermaid. Actors Sam Claflin and Astrid Bergés-Frisbey are beautiful, but not so talented. They are a horrible replacement of Orlando Bloom and Keira Nightly.

2. "The Tree of Life"
The Palme d'Or winner Terrence Malick releases his new movie world wide. I'll watch it just on June 9 and can't wait for it. I'm interested in, because I love when Brad plays not "macho man" characters, but a real man, a father. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his hard adult years as he tries to settle a complicated relationship with his father. Sean creates very depressed person Jack, who finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith.

3. "Kung Fu Panda 2" 
Family comedy about a panda, who becomes a hero, was successful, so it's not a surprise that creators made a sequel. Now the main character must save kung fu. He with his four friends starts a journey, which will be full of dangerous and funny moments. I've seen video about how it was made, that's why I can tell you - everybody, especially actors, did a great job creating such a nice animation movie. I'm sure they will be proud to show it to their kids.

4. "Priest"
The latest movie about vampires with Paul Bettany tells us a story about how legendary priest fights the evil and tries to safe his niece. It is made in not so good 3D, but it is worth watching because of atmosphere, leading actor, music by composer Christopher Young and this beastly vampires.

5. "Bridesmaids"
I was choosing between this melodrama and the 2nd "Hangover", so I prefer this movie. It has a crazy cast. Every woman is different from others, but they can get wild together and have an unforgettable trip. And as one critic from 'New Yorker' said: "The movie is uneven and lurching, but it provides many laughs."
