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.

If a movie have John Travolta, Hugh Jackman, and Halle Barry in it, what more can you ask for?
Swordfish is a hacker/action movie that plays with the question of morality.
I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to spoil the movie if you haven’t seen it.
Like all action Hollywood movies, there is also a lot of play on sex. As well as some funny moments.
However, when they speak “Finnish” in the movie, it is actually German. Not sure what is up with that, but then it often happens a lot when they speak “Swedish” too.
I find the movie a fun ride that also adds thinking of morality.
The DVD version also includes multiple endings, which I found a lot of fun. Not that the ending they choose didn’t work, because it does, but so do the other endings.
I regularly rewatch this one. The mix of all the elements works extremely well for me.
