Mario’s Weekend Movie Roundup [VIDEO]
Three new movies make it to theaters this weekend. Lots of drama and action to be expected in the true to life story based on former Navy Seal Marcus Lutrell “Lone Survivor” starring Mark Wahlberg in the lead role. Had a chance to see and hear Lutrell’s inspiring story of courage and heroism a couple of years ago. Can’t wait to see this movie! Also, half-man half-god “The Legend of Hercules” will be slamming into theaters as well. Finally, a story of a man who falls in love with a computer operating system “Her.” Sounds a little bizarre.
