Twists and turns

I watched a fun movie last night – After the Sunset, starring Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Woody Harrelson. Not that any movie with Pierce Brosnan isn’t worth watching, but this movie was better than I expected.

Pierce and Salma are retired jewel thieves, and Woody is the FBI agent who knows they’re guilty but has never been able to prove it. Sounds dramatic, violent, right? Wrong. It’s actually more a comedy/romance, with quite a few plot twists and surprises.

I love a good heist movie, probably because I admire the writing in a film that surprises me. My brain doesn’t work that way, and I never see the twists coming.

What’s your favorite type of movie?

  1. I can’t narrow it down to a type, so I’ll give a list. Star Wars (IV), Notting Hill, Dirty Dancing, The Big Easy, Pretty Woman, Robin Hood, The Parent Trap (both versions), That Darn Cat (the first one).

    Those are the ones that spring readily to mind. Now it’s back to hurricane preparations.


  2. Margery, wonderful website you have! Lol, I just blogged about fav movies – great minds? I love Gone With The Wind, Titanic, and I have many for the third place!
