Weekend Movie post

Happy Monday blog family!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. As for me, you'll see in my post that I frequently go see movies. I love reviewing movies. I firmly believe that catching a movie transports you into lives outside of our own and it makes me think.

This weekend, I saw two movies. I first saw The Equalizer and then Gone Girl. Both were very good in my opinion and both totally different. The Equalizer was based off the late 1980's TV show of the same name and it stared Denzel Washington at it was a good action movie although it lacked immediate action it took you through getting familiar with the characters first. One thing I always feel when I watch these types of movies and I'm sure there has been some research into it but the main thing about the killers in movies is that they have highly tuned senses and really keen on reading people. I am definitely not a killer nor am I a sociopath but I definitely have a sharp sense of when someone just doesn't seem right. I feel growing up in an urban environment often fine tunes this particular skill as the city is often called the "urban jungle" and being that I now live in the suburbs I definitely see a lack of it in the kids there.

Now for Gone Girl and the review of this pychological thriller. It was hands down one of the best movies that I've seen in a while. Most movies are easily interpreted but this was not. It was far fetched but a great interpretation of how married people interact and think about each other minus the extreme craziness that was Amazing Amy but still some married couples can last through anything... even hate. Definitely a must see movie. I 'm not going to go to much into detail but this is a great quote from the original book and I thought it was fitting of the blog.
