Two Movies for Tonight

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... The Girl on the Train.

This movie wasn't what I was expecting at all. Granted I didn't read the book before watching. Usually, I read the book but this time I didn't. I thought the movie was OK but it just wasn't anything like what I thought it was going to be from what I had seen in the previews. It was still worth watching but I'm sure the book was much better.

Rachel rides the train everyday to and from the city. Rachel looks out the window and everyday sees her old neighborhood, neighbors and ex-husband. The ride on the train is a constant glimpse into the life that she use to have and the life of her ex and his new wife. Rachel is still devastated by not being able to have children and the failure of her marriage. She ended the marriage when she caught him cheating with a real estate agent. She began drinking heavily and she would blackout and have to relive what happened by her husband telling her of her outbursts. She blamed herself for the failure of the marriage and her infertility since she heard how bad she behaved.

One day on the train, she notices the neighbor with another man who isn't her husband and it puts her into a tailspin. She goes on a drinking rampage and finds herself at the end of the day getting off the train in her old neighborhood. When Rachel wakes up the next morning and news hits that the women she saw on her balcony has gone missing she gets a sick feeling inside her stomach that she has something to do with it. The only problem... she can't remember anything from the night before. She begins on a journey to recover what happened that night on the train.
The second movie... The Accountant.

I really liked this movie. From the previews it looked interested but once you've watched you realize it was much better than the previews. I will be watching this one again.

Chris Wolf (Affleck) is a math genius. He's also been diagnosed with a high- functioning form of autism. When he was a child he was offered free admission to an institute to learn how to cope and become the most productive. However, his military father decided that he needed to be out in the world and learn to do it his way. Chris' mother couldn't handle it and left leaving him with just his brother and father. They moved over the years all of the world and their father taught them how to defend themselves.

Now... Chris works as an accountant but some of his clients aren't on the level. He finds himself in the middle of something he didn't bargain for and an innocent person could get hurt. Usually, this wouldn't matter as Chris has had to take of problems before by any means. But he takes a liking to the girl who has been kind to him. So Chris takes it upon himself to help the innocent girl he comes into contact with before he flees the city. Do they both make it out harms way? Watch and find out.
