movie tips #4

Gone Girl
''With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent...''

My friend told me about this movie and I honestly didn't expect much...But this movie is insane! If this doesn't give you chills, nothing will. I immediately fell in love with this movie and I can't wait to read the book as well. 

Pitch Perfect 2
''After a humiliating command performance at Lincoln Center, the Barden Bellas enter an international competition that no American group has ever won in order to regain their status and right to perform...''

If you saw the first part and you liked it, you definitely have to watch the second movie! I laughed, I cried and I enjoyed this movie to the fullest. It's a typical american movie about friendship and love, but it's completed by a lot of great songs!

''After a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, Olympian Louis Zamperini spends a harrowing 47 days in a raft with two fellow crewmen before he's caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp....''

It may seem unusual or boring but I love war movies. And when you add my favorite actors... even better! This movie was inspired by true events and I was kinda emotional when it ended, but I truly admire the main character. 

What do you think about my movie tips? Have you seen any other cool movie lately?:)
