I didn’t have high hopes for this film but it actually wasn’t terrible. There were even a couple of funny moments.

Rated PG

The Guest List by Claire Foley

Jules and Will are getting married. They have decided to get married on a remote island in Ireland to honor Jules family heritage. The night before the wedding only a few family and friends will be staying at the house on the island. Jules, the bride, might be having second thoughts. Hannah, the plus one, isn’t comfortable being there especially since her husband has a history with the bride. Olivia, the bridesmaid and sister to Jules, is having a really rough time and has a big secret. Johnno, the best man is just trying to survive. Aoife, the wedding planner and owner of the venue, just wants everything to go smoothly. But secrets have a way of coming out and during the reception someone is murder. Who died and who did it? But the big question is why?

I don’t know if I was so excited to read this book that I hyped it up too much but it wasn’t as great as I thought it would be. Mainly because I figured out all the twists. Don’t get me wrong it was a pretty good psychological thriller and I would recommend reading it.

The Way Back

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) is having a rough time. His life hasn’t really amounted to anything since he was a high school basketball star. He is separated from his wife and is an alcoholic. He is surprised when he is offered to coach the basketball team at his old school. He reluctantly agrees. The team hasn’t won a season since Jack played there. The team starts out slowly but starts to win. Jack is starting to find purpose again but his demons get the better of him. Will Jack be able to win the battle?

This was a little different then what I thought it was going to be. I thought it would be more about the basketball but it was more about Jack and his journey. It was a good but sad movie. Rated R
