Looking for something to watch tonight? Time is precious and you don't want to spend time searching for a movie to only be disappointed with it in the end. So that's why I've brought you two movies for tonight. The movies I review here give you an idea of what's good to watch any time you want to quickly get a movie and start watching it. This week I'm giving you two movies that are totally worthy of your time.
The First movie... Untraceable.
Special Agent Jennifer March (Diane Lane) lives and works in Portland. During the day she's a mom to her daughter but at night she works in the cyber crime division. Dealing with mainly identity theft and similar crimes her world changes when one night she gets an anonymous tip to a website called killwithme.com. A person is out in the world with a live feed to kill on the internet. He projects a life feed on the website and blocks anywhere from knowing where he is. As he increases from killing animals to humans, he kills his victims faster as more people are watching. The FBI urges people not to go to the website but that only fuels traffic to the site. As the murderer continues to stalk his victims, they begin to determine if the victims are chosen at random or for specific reasons.
This is definitely a thriller. At times I was scared watching it because I can't handle movies that scare me to death. It's also very graphic during one of the killings and I had to look away. The story is very realistic though and I thought it was a good movie. Give it a watch if you haven't already.
The Second movie... Apollo 13.
Ah, an oldie but a goodie. Apollo 13 recreates the true story of the Apollo 13 mission, the fateful space ship that was destined to never land on the moon. The three man crew had to figure out how to survive in space and return to Earth after disaster hit their space ship. Captivated by the unfolding story, the world watched for days mesmerized by every detail shared on the news. NASA had everyone working the problem on how to figure out how to get these three men back home. We had never lost anyone in space before and they weren't going to start now.
I love this movie. I'm a big lover of all things Space though! Anyone who loves science or even Tom Hanks would be entertained. If you've never watched this... please do! It's based on the book that was written by Jim Lovell who was the Commander on Apollo 13. Tom Hanks also did a great job with keeping it factual but entertaining.
