Having a lot of DVDs is like having a lot of clothes. You can look at your closet and think: I have nothing to wear. I can look at all my DVDs and think: I've got nothing to watch. Making choices is hard! I get that. I sometimes feel like it's hard to choose. So I'll help you a bit! I'll give you 3 tips of movies to watch next week! I'll do this more often and try to give a mix of genres, pick old & new ones and vary in well know/ well hidden gems. Let's start with the first 3 tips.
Jagten is a 2012 Danish drama movie. I thought this movie was really really good. It's one of the most impressive movies I've watched and I definitely recommend watching this movie. The movie is directed by Thomas Vinterberg (also known for Festen). The main role in this movie is for Mads Mikkelsen. he plays a teacher named Lucas. Lucas is a well liked kindergarten teacher. He struggles with his divorce and the relationship with his teenage son. Then , he is being wrongfully accused by the 5 year old Klara (the daughter of his best friend) of abuse. Because of that, his life change into a nightmare. Mads Mikkelsen is absolutely great and the story will keep you interested till the very end!
2. Sleepaway camp
Sleepaway is a 1983 horror movie. A nice slasher film! I can't believe I hadn't heard of this movie until last year. I saw a youtube review about it and that made me curious. Sig gave me Sleepaway Camp 1 -3 for Christmas and we watched them quite soon. I totally love these movies! I was surprised by how much I liked this horror movie because I hadn't heard of it before. But I can tell you: It's totally worth the watch!
Sleepaway Camp is about a traumatized girl who has been sent to a summer camp with her cousin. Suddenly campers begin to die in a series of terrible accidents. But I promise you: This not just a regular slasher movie. For the horror fans out there, this movie definitely is a must see. Watch, and let it surprise you!
3. Now You See Me
Oh, I love this 2013 crime/ mystery movie! It had an amazing cast with names like Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and others! Now You See Me is about a group of illusionists who pull a bank heists during one of their performances. After that, Interpol & the FBI go after them.. I love how this movie is smart and surprising. The illusionist make the impossible happen, yet everything cán be explained. Last year (2016), Now You See Me 2 came out. I didn't like that movie that much. But part 1 definitely is worth your time!
