This series of posts are about entertainment that I recommend when people ask me for recommendations. It also includes place-specific “entertainment”, such as beautiful gardens; it might be stretching the definition of entertainment, but I enjoy myself in the places I recommend.
They are not universal recommendations. I wouldn’t recommend a dark thriller to someone looking for something nice and happy; I’d recommend a romance.
They aren’t perfect or without mistakes.

Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, great action, and a fun (if implausible) story: What more can you ask of a great movie?
This is something of a theme with me. I love a lot of the big Hollywood action movies.
When I heard the plot for Mr. & Mrs. Smith, I knew it would be a blast. Two assassins unwittingly married to each other going through marriage counseling.
Plus I enjoy watching those two actors and several of their movies are my favorites.
I also enjoyed how the story was told. When they switched between different times in the couple’s life and when it went to the counseling.
Admittedly, I really don’t know much about how to make a great movie. Like camera angles, when to cut, how to cut, what to leave out, how to… everything.
All I know is I really loved how they did it in this movie. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Take it or leave, but if you tend to like Hollywood action movies and haven’t seen this one? Go see it. Then come talk to me so we can gush about it (I can hope!).
