Movie Monday!!!

 Saturday Matt and I went to see Captain Phillips which is based on a true story of a Somali Pirate attack on a cargo ship. Tom Hanks was the lead and he was fantastic like always, he was likable but strong two things this character needed to be. This movie was really interesting, an inside look at a story we all remember from the news just a few short years ago. A movie that once again always makes me think….what would I do? This was intriguing and slid over to the thriller side of a movie from time to time. Our only complaint? We wished they would have shaved off about 15minutes or so!! You can see the trailer here…..

Friday night we rented a movie that I really wanted to see in the theater….The Purge. Just the premise of this movie is so unique….a future America where 1 night a year you can “purge” yourself and kill anyone! I mean unique in a way that I hope this NEVER happens! ha! This was R so I was worried about gore but honestly this wasn’t bad at all… I was nervous for nothing! We both really liked this movie, if you want a good scary/thriller(ish) renter then this is for you.

    We have talked about watching The Purge several times but never got up the nerve to do it!

    I saw Captain Phillips on Sunday with my dad and loved it! Tom Hanks is already getting Oscar buzz…and I totally think it's warranted! That last scene where the doc is taking care of him, OMG, I was balling like a little girl! And I heard sniffles from all the women around me, so I know I wasn't the only one (though, I know you're not typically a crier with movies).
