Movies that will blow your mind

Last week I had a lot of time on my hands since my youngest son was super sick. He was running a fever and wouldn't let me leave his side, which I gladly cuddled up on the couch with him. Over a two day span, I emptied the DVR of all back logged shows, I read several books and watched a few movies that looked interesting, but I've never had the chance to sit down and enjoy them.

The two movies that I watched blew my mind. They were both psychological thrillers that were totally different but both crazy. You have got to watch these movies.

1. Diablo (2015) - A young civil war veteran is forced on a desperate journey to save his kidnapped wife.

Not only does it have Scott Eastwood in it (Who looks just like his father), it has some pretty spectacular gun fights too. Don't forget the twist at the end. My husband claims that he figured it out halfway through the movie, but I was completely entwined in the story until the very end and didn't see it comeing.


2. The Perfect Getaway (2009) - Newlyweds Cliff (Steve Zahn) and Cydney (Milla Jovovich) are celebrating their honeymoon by hiking through a secluded region of Hawaii. Their idyllic trek takes a dark turn when they find a group of frightened hikers who claim that another couple has been brutally murdered. Far from civilization and unsure who to trust, Cydney and Cliff soon get locked into a terrifying battle for survival.

This movie has several of my favorite actors in it. Milla Jovovich, Steve Zahn and Chris Hemsworth (Third on my list of favorite Chris'). I didn't watch this movie with my husband, but i'm sure he would have figured out the plot twist before I did. You will not see this one coming. It's a great date night thriller or a sick baby napping kind of movie. 

If you have a movie that has a twist that you didn't see coming, let me know in the comments below. I am always on the lookout for good inspiration and entertainment.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
