February Movie Preview: 28 Days Of LEGO, Robocop And Lovey Dovey Remakes
The Monuments MenWhen it comes to actors and directors who give historical dramas a good name, George Clooney fits squarely in both lists. The Monuments Men, based on Robert M. Edsel’s 2009 book of the same name, is Clooney’s take on a World War II film where the soldiers are art historians and the battles are for paintings rather than land or gold. The cast Clooney rounded up, including Cate Blanchett, Jean Dujardin, and Bill Murray, are as much of a treasure as the masterpieces the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives program was founded to retrieve, following mass Nazi lootings. Expect a few laughs to make their way into the tense drama. I wonder if they’ll eventually find any golden statues hiding in that art.
