watch these : spring films

Summer Films 4Summertime has not officially hit, but already there are some great films that have been released this year. Within the last month, Geoffrey and I have already seen three! In case you were wondering, this is a lot for us. In this time span we have had one long weekend and an entire week off from work. Given that our two favourite types of dates are going to the theatre and working out at the gym, we made sure to cram in as much movie-going as we could. Honestly, these three films were also the best ones that I have seen in 2015.

These are my must-see picks for this season:

1. Mad Max : Fury Road

As I wrote before, “Um, Tom Hardy, as Mad Max, and in 3D? Sorry men, but women everywhere will never be the same.” What can I say about this film except that it is an insane ride from start to finish? There’s a reason why it’s rated 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is an entertaining and well-acted slice of unrealistic heaven. If you are in need of an amazing film for all genders, grab your 3D glasses and popcorn, and go and see Mad Mad : Fury Road in theatres. 

2. Pitch Perfect 2

If you were to ask my husband if I dragged him to this movie, he would probably say yes. Yet, that is the furthest thing from the truth. While we are not big on comedies, we recently watched Pitch Perfect on Netflix and loved it! I adore Rebel Wilson, and think that she and Melissa McCarthy are the funniest comedic women currently in Hollywood. Suffice it to say that I will watch anything that they are in. Pitch Perfect 2 was incredibly raunchy and just as hilarious as the first film. Want a good laugh? Be sure to see this one!

3. Ex Machina

Aside from the envious and remote house and scenery, the plot for this movie was as original as it could be for an AI film. In general, I tend to prefer types of movies that feel like plays; with one or two settings and but a few actors. Ex Machina was just that, yet it managed to cram intelligent conversations in with action. Additionally, a robot wearing floral dresses and a pixie cut? Not to mention Oscar Isaac? This movie had eye candy and perfect acting coming at you from all angles. Though the ending was a bit unbelievable, the film on the whole should not be missed.

Have a wonderful and warm weekend!
