Must-Watch Movies for the month of March

Here are the three movies that you should not miss watching this March:

Alice in Wonderland

What is Alice in Wonderland?

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland starring Johnny Depp, is about Alice's second adventure down the rabbit hole to the Wonderland, a place she had visited 13 years ago. The Red Queen has taken over the place by steeling the crown from her sister the White Queen, and Alice is the only one who can save Wonderland by killing the dragon, Jabberwocky.

Fine, Why Should I Watch Alice in Wonderland?

Alice in Wonderland is currently the highest grossing film of 2010 worldwide. It has already surpassed Avatar's IMAX earning records of $9.5 million by earning $11.9 million. Plus! Tim Burton promises more connection with Alice and the other Wonderland characters, unlike in the book where she just pass from character to character.

Alice in Wonderland movie reviews reach a general consensus that the 3D movie is "an undeniable visual treat". Other's are saying it has "managed to hit emotianally satisfying marks" which means it doesn't only appeal to the eyes but also to the heart.

Romeo at Juliet

What is "Romeo at Juliet'?

"Romeo at Juliet" is a Filipino indie movie starring Alessandra de Rossi and Victor Basa. The lead characters are not named Romeo and Juliet, but Joseph and Angel. It is based on an unpublished book by Jean Altavas entitled "Kakaibang Romeo at Juliet" which tells the tragic love story of a modern star-crossed lovers.

Fine, Why Should I Watch "Romeo at Juliet"?

According to Altavas, this is not your ordinary indie film which tackles the dark side of life because the characters in this film are not poor or under-privileged. "Troubles happen to people regardless of status," says Altavas.

This movie will break your usual movie-watching menu from the mainstream movie producers. What more? You get to see Alessandra de Rossi bare it all for the first time. The "Romeo at Juliet" movie trailer alone was rated X by MTRCB.

Up in the Air

What is Up in the Air?

Up in the Air starring George Clooney is a drama comedy about a Ryan Bingham whose job is to fire people. His job gives him the opportunity to travel almost everyday of his life which keeps him away from emotional connections to other people. Which is the way he like it.

Or he thought he liked it. Because when he tries to show a junior co-worker how his job is really like, he ends up seeing how lonely his life has always been.

Fine, Why Should I Watch Up in the Air?

Although Up in the Air didn't won any awards during the recently concluded 82nd OSCARS Academy Awards, it is still a must-watch movie because it will make you think of your life too.

You'll definitely enjoy the comedy as Ryan Bingham's life is presented in a simple and witty manner, while not losing the message underneath it all. Up in the Air movie reviews agree that it has "a very strong sense of humor as well as an emotional depth".
