My sister, knowing I was planning these reviews, showed me a movie that surprised her and she wished all throughout for it to have the perfect twist and success that I seek so I could add it to my list. Gotta say, this movie has become a favorite!
Pan Am (click here to read my review!) and I never go looking for Will Smith movies, but I am always pleasantly surprised. Before you ask, no, I have not seen Suicide Squad, nor I intend to. I have read and heard about it enough to know that it isn't for me. The characters they play of course are completely different, needless to say, and they work together very well. The story makes fun of the well known heist movies as well as adding characters that were completely out of the norm. This was not just a stereotypical movie with a fun twist at the end, actually, it was a completely new experience to me. The scenery alone made it beautiful, and when you add how brilliantly they wrapped up the story, you won't regret that you started to watch it.
"- So what about the big con? I though you were all big time.
- Oh, you mean the one where we make so much money, we can all retire and get yachts and boob jobs? Now, that's a fantasy. We are in the volume business. It's safer that way."
Watch it? Yes, please. The rating completely missed on the sheer awesomeness of this movie. There is a lot more to it with details that even I didn't catch when I watched it for the first time. This is one of those films that has to be rewatched over and over again and that makes it a home-run for me!
Until the next item on my list!
