This post is a week overdue...but frankly I haven't really had the energy to blog, despite not really doing much else. As usual here are the movies I watched this month on the big screen (or my laptop at home). I'd love to hear in the comments what movies you've seen recently, I do love recommendations! 

Before We Go

Plot: Two strangers stuck in Manhattan for the night grow into each other's most trusted confidants when an evening of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives.

This movie was beautiful. Chris Evan stars (along with Alice Eve) and directed the movie and I didn't want it to end. It's a story of two people who cross paths in Grand Central Station in New York both with their own problems and things there are running from. It's a love story in its own way, but more than anything it's realistic. It was artistic and the chemistry between the characters felt genuine - although who could spend a night in a hotel room with Chris Evans and NOT make a move? The acting gets better as the movie goes on, and although I don't agree with the shitty advice given in it (no spoilers) to do with her husband. I guess the movie shows what most of us have experienced to an extent - love, loss and living again. On another note the ending was super annoying but also stems away from the cliche ending we were all expecting and in that made it a lot less cheesy.

Bad Neighbours 2

Plot: When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.

The first one was hilarious, and i'm a big fan of Seth Rogen and Zac Efron (who isn't?) so this movie was a must watch. As with most sequels, they're never as good as the originals but there were a few comedic moments - it won't be up there for winning an Oscar or anything but it's just a fun movie to watch on a Saturday night with your pals with a few beers. Plus there's plenty of topless Zac Efron to enjoy so you don't even have to pay attention to the movie.

X-Men: Apocalypse Now 

Plot: With the emergence of the world's first mutant, Apocalypse, the X-Men must unite to defeat his extinction level plan.

Truth be told I've only been a fan of superhero movies for the past 2 years or so, so I watched the first two instalments of X-men in January and thought they were fab. Which meant I only had to wait 5 months for the next movie instead of 2 years like all you loyal fans! I loved it, although the whole good magneto/bad magneto tango is getting a tad old - but I still enjoyed seeing his sexy angry face. I loved how they brought in a new bunch of x-men to join the crew, and that my babe Evan Peters got more screen time! That "Seven Nation Army" scene was the best part of the whole movie in my opinion. Sansa Stark also did a great job as Gene, frankly she had more character and personality in her than I thought she did. Also, does anyone else ever feel super pumped after seeing an action/superhero movie? I felt like kicking some ass after leaving that cinema.

Alice Through The Looking Glass

Plot: Alice returns to the whimsical world of Wonderland and travels back in time to save the Mad Hatter.

I only went to watch this because my housemate fancied it and frankly I didn't particularly enjoy the first one (the bits I saw of it on TV anyway) but it was kinda alright - I didn't fall asleep. I was pretty tired when we went and I managed to stay invested in the movie throughout, so I'd say it was worth the watch.
