I Don't Have A Life....

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
 The Girl on The Train is the TOP book out right now and it is being sold as the "New Gone Girl". Is it? I am not entirely sure?! It's weird, I am torn about this book.... Did I enjoy it? Yes... But did it live up to the hype? Not really. The beautiful wife has gone missing, is she alive? Is her husband responsible? What was she hiding? That is the premise of the book! The lead character the "Girl on the train" is infuriating. She is a mess and everything she does is beyond stupid but that is who she is and who she is suppose to be in this book.  I will say I didn't figure out the "twist" until I was suppose to at the end.... that was a pleasant surprise. I would tell you to give this book a whirl you might love it. But if you want a Gone Girl.... read Gone Girl!
I have to say I am not a big Keanu fan but the quote on this movie poster is right.... it's his best as of late! This is a full on violent action movie the whole time and to be honest if someone was to kill one of my dogs I would do the same thing. So thank you to Keanu for acting out my rage! Your husbands will love this!
 I have wanted to watch Nightcrawler for awhile to see the movie that Jake Gyllenhaal lost all this weight for and was said to be so immersed in his role. My take away? I have no idea why he lost weight for this movie other than to add to his creep factor. This movie for me is a WAIT until it hits cable. Really, it's weird.... it ends with no warning and there is no point. Ugg
Lastly I wanted to watch this movie to see Eddie Redmayne in his Oscar winning performance and he 110% deserves that award. It is incredible to watch him in this movie. He clearly has a gift and Felicity Jones is amazing, strong and so charming. But I will say that the performances are the highlight of the movie.... everything else is just a slow story on screen. I do think this movie is renter for sure, you should watch it but I didn't fall in love with it.

Now who is EXCITED for tomorrow????? Francis Underwood is BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!

I liked Theory of Everything but, true stories are some of my favorites. I hope to see Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones go far in their acting careers.
