The Spy Who Dumped Me

The Spy Who Dumped Me is an action/comedy about two best friends who get caught in a super secret spy mission (if your anything like me, this is your secret fantasy). They go on a crazy adventure in Europe which all begins when Audrey (Mila Kunis) discovers that her ex boyfriend is a spy with the CIA.

I love Mila Kunis. This is no secret and this perhaps gives me a bias because I love everything she does. So yes, you guessed it. This movie was no different. I LOVED IT! Mila is stunning, loveable, relatable and funny. She just gets better and better.

Kate McKinnon is outstanding in this film. She is hilarious and her character is completely and effortlessly loveable. Plus she brings feminism into the movie in a light hearted yet real way. Mila and Kate had such a great dynamic together. It was their connection that made it completely believable that they were best friends and I can definitely put the success of this movie down to that.

Sam Heughan. That’s all I need to say about him, right? I mean you are looking at the only reason I watch Outlander. He is gorgeous and this movie is no exception. Oh, except you get the pleasure of hearing him with a British accent.

The cast is amazing. The writing is hilarious. The movie is all round well done. It was a movie that legitimately made me forget about my problems for 1 hour and 57 minutes (if we disregard the ‘I need to pee’ reality check).

Now there are only two things left to do: firstly, watch the movie again. And then, wait for a sequel.

Warnings: The movie contains some swearing, violence (you know, the usual, guns and stuff), very slight nudity (literally a split second, it’s so quick that you may not even notice it), some vomiting and gagging.

Sully.

You may have heard of the emergency aeroplane landing on the Hudson river in 2009. Whether that be from the news or from Justin Timberlake’s reference in ‘Friends With Benefits’. It undoubtably went down in history as a miracle and Captain Sullenberger a hero. But you may have wanted to know a bit more about what happened. Like what was it like for the people on board? How did he manage such a difficult landing? So many of your questions are answered in a beautifully produced and directed biographical drama called ‘Sully’.

Movies that are based on true stories create a different experience. They make you think about the situation on a deeper level and imagine yourself in the position of the characters. I had the same feeling while watching Sully as I did while watching the Titanic for the first time; fear and amazement. I was slightly scared to get on a plane just as I was slightly scared to go on a cruise. In saying that, the safety precautions that became evident through this movie really comforted me. I will no longer tune out the flight attendants when they talk through the emergency exit points again.

If I wasn’t so bad at time organisation, this post would have been up weeks ago. But because I did take so long (sorry), the movie isn’t playing in cinemas anymore. In saying that, I’m sure it will be on one of the many streaming sites (I’m talking legal ones like netflix and presto – be good guys) soon.

If you watched this movie in cinema, let me know what you think in the comments below!
