Have you ever watched a movie and been surprised by it? I don't mean a twist at the end that you did not see coming, I mean a movie that you thought you would hate or would never find your self watching because its not "your thing". Have you seen it and really enjoyed it? has it got you into other movies of the same genre? Were you forced to sit through it by your partner and were pleasantly surprised? or did you just take a chance on a DVD rental at blockbusters. I would like to see your thoughts on this . There is nothing recently that I have seen that I can think of, but I remember Taking a risk on the movie "The usual suspects" a long time ago. I took the then girlfriend out for a meal and then we fancied renting a movie for the evening ( amongst other things ) Of to the video shop we went without any idear of what we we fancied to watch. I can remember that a few of the titles that we wanted were not in ,so , not really being a fan of the crime thriller type movie, I was talked in to getting it by the girl friend and off we went. What can I say, I wont go in to a review of the film but I can say that this movie really surprised me ( not because of the twist ) but because of the way the whole film was put together. Sharply made and acted ,it really kept my interest and in turn widened my film viewing horizons a little. Dave.
