Mortdecai (2015)

Charismatic British aristocrat and part-time shady art dealer Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) suffers from a constant lack of funds to support his lush lifestyle, so when Alistair Maitland (Ewan McGregor), a college friend and officer in MI5, asks him to find a stolen Goya painting, he accepts. But Charlie's not the only one with designs on the painting; an American heiress and a revolutionary want it too, for the artwork is rumored to contain the code to a bank account filled with Nazi gold.-WWW

The theatre/theater is really beautiful and clean inside

Side story:  It was not our first time in the area, but it surely was our first time watching a movie there.  After a hearty ramen lunch at Kichitora, we enjoyed the state-of-the-art theater experience at the Bonifacio High Street Cinema 3.  This is where we watched Mortdecai. ;-)  

Mortdecai is another movie that we watched not knowing what to expect, except for the fact that Johnny Depp and Gwyneth Paltrow were the main characters.  Depp and Paltrow are two of my favorite actors and that reason alone is enough for us to want to watch the film.

We hardly recognized Junix Inocian, but when he started speaking, I nudged my folks and said, "That's Junix Inocian!"  We couldn't help being proud of him.  He was so good and his acting was seamless.

Mortdecai as a whole is a funny movie, but I must warn the ultra conservatives: You wouldn't want to hear the innuendos or you wouldn't stomach the violence.

At any rate, everyone watching with us in the theater laughed all the way.

Paul Bettany, Ewan McGregor and my bestie's lookalike, Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldblum and all the other actors played their parts so well.

So again I say, "Kudos to the entire cast and crew!"
