Movies. Around an hour and a half of pure entertainment. Something often sought after as a cure for the constant problem of boredom. Theaters always have an abundance of different types of movies and almost anyone can find at least one they enjoy. Here are some of the movies that are currently in theaters and why you should go see them.
First up is an adventure/fantasy movies. One amazing movie you have to see was actually adapted from a book. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is about a boy who discovers that the bedtime stories his grandfather told him were true. He makes some strange new friends who he must save from danger. This movie was directed by Tim Burton, so you know it has to be at least slightly creepy. However, nothing too scary happens. I actually went to see this movie when it first came out, which says something because I don’t do horror whatsoever. It wasn’t what I was expecting at all, and left me surprised in a good way. I definitely recommend anyone to see this movie. Another fantasy movie that was actually recommended by a friend for me to see is Doctor Strange. It’s pretty self explanatory. He’s a doctor. His last name is strange. Doctor Strange turns out to be a sorcerer who is the only one who can save the world from danger.
Moving on! My favorite type of movie ever is action. Jack Reacher:Never Go Back is the perfect blend of comedy and action. Jack Reacher is a sarcastic, witty investigator who shells out lessons while fighting some crime. The first movie was amazing and I’m sure this sequel will be just as great. The Account isn’t really an action movie, but it is a crime film, which to me is close enough. The movie is about a brilliant accountant who freelances for the worst criminals out there. A good action movie is the perfect cure for boredom.
Last but not least, I have to bring in a comedy. Boo! A Madea Halloween is definitely the movie to see. Every single one of Madea’s movies is hilarious and I’m sure this one isn’t any different. Madea’s newest movie is about a group of teens trying to get revenge on Madea for crashing their Halloween party.
Well, I hope this helps. Maybe look up some trailers and see if they’re your cup of tea. Going to see one of these movies may be the perfect thing to do this weekend if you get bored.
