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.
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.
