Movievision Monday

I was just going to do an ol' regular post about a few movies I just recently saw, but then I thought I should just create a weekly post. Because I watch movies all the time and I always want to do posts on the good and really bad ones but I somehow never get around to it. So maybe...if I know my readers are expecting a post, I'll be able to do it!

Anna is a successful woman living in Chicago with an equally successful boyfriend. She believes he's going to ask her to marry him and when he doesn't she decides to go to Dublin and ask him herself on Leap Year. But she has some difficulty getting there and must rely on a bar owner to help her....I'm not a huge fan of Amy Adams but I absolutely adored this movie. The comedy and romance was perfect! Matthew Goode is one my list of future husbands now! I don't know if the 12.5% of me that's Irish came out or what, but I got so turned on by Declan's accent! You have to watch this movie. It's exciting, funny, and romantic but not a cliche.

After a fight with her boss, a wife and mother is convicted of murdering her boss after work. Her husband does everything in his power to get his wife another trial and prove her nnocencce but when all hope is lost he only has one option. To bail his wife out of prison....I saw this in theaters a few days ago and did not think it would be as great as it was. I was surprised because it was kind of low-budget but I think it made the story more real. Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks are amazing. And there's a small scene with the wonderful Liam Neeson! Every scene in this movie was interesting and intense. Seriously one of the best movies I've seen.

In 1954, U.S. Marshal Teddy Daniels is investigating the disappearance of a murderess who escaped from a hospital for the criminally insane and is presumed to be hiding on the remote Shutter Island....AMAZING MOVIE! Someone is my AP Psych class mentioned this movie but I somehow still didn't see what was coming. Leonardo DiCaprio is amazing as always but Mark Ruffalo is awesome too. Actually, every single person in this movie was pretty much perfect. Martin Scorcese just makes another great movie!
