The Avengers: Age of Ultron (16 10 15) – A bit long. Hawkeye really grew on me; Jeremy Renner shone in this movie. I like Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch. Everything else was standard Avengers fare.
Trainwreck (26 10 15) – I really enjoyed this. While there were a few scenes that went on too long, most of the movie worked for me. There aren’t enough good romantic comedies like this anymore. Schumer and Hader were wonderful. I thought Schumer did well in her dramatic scenes. The supporting cast was fun. Swinton! At the end of the movie, I wanted more and to follow these characters. A sign of a good movie.
Pitch Perfect 2 (27 10 15) – I knew this would not be as good as the first movie which I really enjoyed. I even have some of the songs on my phone. This second movie was slower paced and I wasn’t as engaged. It had some nice moments and songs, but not enough of them. Not essential viewing.
Groundhog Day (20 10 15) – Was feeling a bit sick so movie time. I read a FiveThirtyEight article on most rewatched movies. Many commenters noted that this was not on the list, but it should have been. I agree. I love the spiritual aspect of this, and it’s my favourite Bill Murray movie.
I agree with you about The Avengers: Age of Ultron, I really hope they give Scarlett Witch more screen time in the next one! And I also agree about Pitch Perfect 2, the first one was so good and I loved it so much, this one was just sort of meh.
Yes, me too. Elizabeth Olsen is easily the best Olsen. 😉 Weeks later and I’m still underwhelmed by PP2. Thanks for the comment.
I enjoyed The Avengers: Age of Ultron and I love Groundhog Day it should definitely be on the most re-watched list!
