A slight divergence from my usual dog post but, last night I went to the movies and watched A Simple Favor. WOW! That was the most interesting yet confusing movie I have ever seen. Once the credits started rolling, my friends and I just sat there for about five minutes processing our thoughts. Twenty four hours later and I am still processing.
I am not going to give any spoilers about the movie, just a few of my thoughts. Going into the movie I really didn’t know what it was about other than it had Blake Lively who I love and Anna Kendrick who I do not like. They both played their roles perfectly and I left the movie loving Emily (Blake Lively) and hating Stephanie (Anna Kendrick). The plot twist and turns were so unpredictable. I never saw any of the events coming. Especially the ending! In fact, my friends and I kept trying to predict the next plot twist and never got one correct. I also really liked that the movie was different from the book. I feel like a lot of times when making a movie it is very similar to the book so it was exciting to not know what to expect.
I love going to a movie and it being such a surprise. I really hope that movies like this will continue to be made as going to the movies is such a fun past time. I also really hope that theaters can stand the test of time and survive the ever increasing use of technology. All and all I recommend everyone go see this movie!
