I haven't done this in a while-- mainly because I don't go to the theaters anymore due to overcharging-- but lately I've rented plenty of movies and TV shows so it's high time to offer up a few recommendations.
Not. That. Great. Honestly, if you can see it for free-- do it, otherwise save your money for one of the other options on this list that's worth watching . It's your typical action film: predictable, a little too long for it's own good, and oozing with cheesy dialogue.
I liked it, though the film requires another viewing. George Clooney is excellent as a seasoned assassin with plenty of paranoia and little to say. Although the story moves slowly, the performances and story are interesting.
The Sons of Anarchy
What a cool show about a bad ass biker gang and their "old ladies." Excellent anti-heroes, the plot has plenty of twists and turns, and there is just enough violence and profanity. A must see.
Although I never would've chosen to watch this film myself, my husband's rental pick actually ended up being hilarious. What else can I say? It's ridiculous but quotable and will get funnier the more you watch it.
The Social Network
I liked it. The acting was good, the topic is a great illustration of how culture changed within a couple years of Facebook landing on the scene, even if the story is skewed from the truth. Did the film change my life? Is it one of the best films I've ever scene? Nope. I get the controversy of making a "based on a true story" film while the main character is 25 and thriving, but overall I saw the film once, enjoyed it, and feel no need to see it again.
Love it. Emma Stone is hilarious and charming, the story is great and not at all cheesy. Also another film relevant to our current culture. It's one of the best comedies I've seen in a LONG time.
