Hear This On A Tuesday features my favorites movie soundtracks of the films featured here in It's In the Movies.
For my first soundtrack, I will be featuring the movie 21 starred by Jim Sturgess and Kevin Spacey.
And my favorite song used in the movie is:
TENDER BUTTONS by the Indie electronic band BROADCAST
*RIP to the band's vocalist Trisha Keenan.

Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horseman, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

There were lots of people who had some issues about the film. While I enjoyed it, some didn't feel like it. They had some issues with the storyline of the movie and the pacing and making a big issue of it comparing it too the famous Ocean's Eleven.
For me, I enjoyed it. Totally? Maybe not. But it was really entertaining and there are lots of great visuals. And also, it's nice to see Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson again in one movie! After Zombieland, I really wanted them to be paired again. Also, Dave Franco. This kid needs a really big break. I mean, I had enough of him doing the villain roles. With that face, why?

Despite his tarnished reputation after the events of The Dark Knight, in which he took the rap for Dent's crimes, Batman feels compelled to intervene to assist the city and its police force which is struggling to cope with Bane's plans to destroy the city. (via imdb.com)
Christian Bale will forever be my Batman. Great performance together with the many talented actors in this film. I simply adore Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. She really is a great one and it suits her. The action scenes were superbly done. And I can say that this is the best Batman film from the Nolan's trilogy. Thumbs up Nolan!

With much of the world's population now an undead horde, R is a young and oddly introspective zombie. While fighting with and feeding on a human scavenger party, R meets Julie and feels an urge to protect her. What happens next is the beginning of a strangely warm relationship that allows R to begin regaining his humanity. As this change spreads through the local undead population like a virus, Julie and R eventually have to face a larger issue when the very nature of their friendship is challenged. Caught between the paranoid human forces and the ferocious "Bonies", zombies who are a mutual threat, R and Julie must find a way to bridge the differences of each side to fight for a better world no one thought possible.

I really did a finger-crossed on this one because I love the funny side of things in the book. Glad the movie didn't disappoint me. There were moment that definitely cracked me up. If I remember right, this is the first zombie romance story I have ever seen in the big screen. It's really cool and it was really surprising.
Nicolas Hoult did a great job portraying R! Thumbs up!
