Two Great Movies to Watch This Weekend

Last weekend Megan and I watched two recent movies that surprised me and exceeded my expectations. If you’re looking for some good films to stream this weekend, I’d recommend both Vengeance and Sharper (though neither are for kids).

Vengeance may sound like an intense action movie with Liam Neeson, but it’s actually a fish-out-of-water mystery that follows a New York podcaster (played by BJ Novak) who travels to Texas for a funeral and ends up trying to solve a mystery.

The move surprised me both due to its humor–there are some very, very funny lines and scenes–and due to its depth. There are some really interesting insights about the red-blue division in America.

Sharper is a movie about con men and women. I really don’t want to say much more than that to avoid spoiling anything, but if you like movies with twists and turns that will keep you guessing, I highly recommend Sharper.

Let me know your thoughts if you watch (or have watched) either of these movies! Spoilers are fine in the comments.
