Movie Reviews: Write them or Read them
I watched these movies on Netflix. I think they are worth a rental.|
Serious Moonlight: This movie is about Louise (Meg Ryan) who shows up at the vacation home she shares with her husband Ian (Tim Hutton) and finds he's planning an encounter with his mistress, Sara (Kristen Bell) and planning on leaving her. Louise tries to talk to Ian but he just won't listen to reason. So, Louise hits Ian over the head and duct tapes him to the toilet. She keeps him there until he agrees to give their marriage another try. Completely reasonable, right? When I first heard of this movie, I thought it sounded super stupid. But believe it or not, it's an engrossing little movie. Meg Ryan and Tim Hutton make a very believable couple. This movie reminds me the old school Meg Ryan movies. She is very charming but almost in a creepy way. I think it's worth a rental.
Chaos Theory: Super uptight efficiency expert, Frank (Ryan Reynolds) is running late one day after his wife, Susan (Emily Mortimer) attempts to give him more time by setting his clock ten minutes ahead. This seemingly harmless error sets off a series of events. The funny thing about this movie is I thought I was going to watch a comedy, which it is. But it has some really touching moments in it. It's almost a surprise tear jerker.
