#11 The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box (2013) "Seventeen-year-old Mariah Mundi's life is turned upside down when his parents vanish and his younger brother is kidnapped. Following a trail of clues to the darkly majestic Prince Regent Hotel, Mariah discovers a hidden realm of child-stealing monsters, deadly secrets and a long-lost artifact that grants limitless wealth - but also devastating supernatural power." -- I loved this family friendly action adventure story. It was just the fun movie I needed the other night. Apparently the movie is based on a book. I'll have to check it out.
#12 Burying the Ex (2014) "A guy's regrets over moving in with his girlfriend are compounded when she dies and comes back as a zombie." -- Such a fun little twist on the zombie trope. This was a ton of fun. Definite must-watch movie.
#13 St. Vincent (2014) "A young boy whose parents have just divorced finds an unlikely friend and mentor in the misanthropic, bawdy, hedonistic war veteran who lives next door." -- Been on my list for awhile now. Glad I finally got around to watching this one. Bill Murray is great at playing the asshole.
#14 A Royal Night Out "On V.E. Day in 1945, as peace extends across Europe, Princesses Elizabeth and Margaret are allowed out to join the celebrations. It is a night full of excitement, danger and the first flutters of romance." -- A silly little movie for overnight feedings. This was a fun movie. Plus the costumes are amazing!
#15 Interstellar (2014) "A team of explorers travel through a wormhole in space in an attempt to ensure humanity's survival." -- I enjoyed most of this movie. The look and sound are amazing. Very 2001-esque. I liked the premise of the movie. What I didn't like was the conclusion that someone love transcended all the obstacles. A little hooey for my tastes.
#16 Jason Bourne (2016) "The CIA's most dangerous former operative is drawn out of hiding to uncover more explosive truths about his past." -- We felt like we had to finish the series, but I must say that I was disappointed in this movie. Acting was so-so, plot was predictable, and worst of all, the shaky cam continued.
#17 Invaders from Mars (1953) "A young boy learns that space aliens are taking over the minds of earthlings." -- Part of our 100 best science fiction films. Properly cheesy scifi. J and I had a lot of laughs from the unintentional comedy. Definite must-see for scifi fans even if the film doesn't have the same impact as in the 1950s.
