In between work and travel and whatnot we’ve watched some pretty good movies lately:
- Neighbors (imdb | rotten tomatoes) made me laugh out loud a couple of times on the flight from Vancouver to Toronto, so it had that going for it. Seth Rogen’s always good, but Rose Byrne and her potty mouth were a nice surprise. So was Zac Efron, actually.
- X-Men: Days Of Future Past (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was better than I thought it was going to be. Dark, super-dark. Especially the future parts. Great execution of a crossover for once. Plus the Quicksilver scenes were very well done.
- We didn’t watch Agents Of Shield so I think we missed some lead-up to Captain America: The Winter Soldier (imdb | rotten tomatoes) but it didn’t need it. It was still a bad-ass action movie that sets up the next several Marvel movies nicely.
- We saw Gone Girl (imdb | rotten tomatoes) in part because I will automatically see any movie David Fincher directs, and in part because it got such great reviews. It was pretty good.
