Gone Girl (2014)
Watching TV today, one channel was showing the movie "Morning Glory" (some kind of lighthearted and upbeat TV show comedy with many famous veteran actors like Harrison Ford) at 9pm, and Gone Girl started a half hour later on another channel. I had to decide whether to switch watching to Gone Girl, and I am glad I did.
I knew nothing about the movie beforehand other than that it had Ben Affleck on it. It really was a surprisingly good and... surprising? movie. With 99% of movies I see nowadays, I feel jaded and uninterested, so it is nice to come by a movie once in a while which does take you by surprise.
I didn't really know what to expect in the movie and where it would be heading next, it kept me guessing. Highly recommended.
(About being jaded... I e.g. watched Broken Flowers
the other day (I think I have seen it before, not quite sure), and I didn't feel it deserved all the praise it has gotten. It was quite a boring and pointless movie overall IMHO, even if the neighbour was somewhat funny in a way, and the open ending was kinda funny. But anyways...)
