The Rum Diary (2011)

 An American journalist, played by Depp, takes a job working for a newspaper in Puerto Rico and try to work around the island culture and his own enjoyment of alcohol while trying to be himself.

I don’t have much to say on this film as it wasn’t really my cup of tea. It was a film I wanted to watch but after seeing it there wasn’t much of a story to it and from what there was went very slow with not much happening. The odd bits of comedy helped me along but ultimately failed in making me enjoy the film.

If you want to see this it is up to you. I will leave it to the comments for people who enjoyed this.

Special mention to Amber Heard who looked great in the film.
