The movie that I absolutely loved was "Side Effects". The cast is: Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Channing Tatum, and Catherine Zeta- Jones. It is about this psychiatric patient named Emily who is very deppressed because her husband is at prison, and when he gets released they have a hard time adjusting. Emily's psychiatrist ( Jude Law) prescribes this new experimental drug named Ablixa, and while sleep-walking, she kills her husband ( Channing Tatum). The doctor's name is at risk, because he was the one who prescribed it, and he goes on a quest to clearing out his name, because Emily is in a mental institution and the case is closed.
I loved it because the plot of this movie happens every day, and in these days we have a lot of artists, and lots of people deppressed who are using anti-deppresants. The performance from the actors were absolutely flawless. People say that if you hate a character that is that the actor is doing an awesome job giving life to it. And in this movie that happened.

The movie that I absolutely hated, and wanted to just get up and leave from the movie theater was "Pain and Gain". The cast was: Mark Whalberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Anthony Mackie. This is a story about these bodybuilders who wanted to make money the easy way, and they kidnapp somebody but goes terribly wrong. Supposedly the story was based in a true one, I cannot believe that actually happened. I wanted the movie to end, I did not get up and leave because I payed for it, and the movies are not cheap. They did a good acting but the plot was horrible. 
But even though the movie is a bad one you should see it because as I said earlier it is based on a true story. Is always good to see a movie about a true event, so you are informed.

I loved side effects too! I liked your review because it's short but has everything the reader needs to know to love or hate the movie. In the pain and gain movie, there was a moment when you said "I" a lot.. but overall it was good!

I really liked your reviews both were very complete and you followed the instructions well. I think the first one was better because you gave more reasons of why you liked it, in the second one all you mentioned was the plot. Still very good post.

Good review! I haven't seen this two, but thanks to your reviews (very complete and descriptive, without saying the conclusion) I want to see the "Side effects" movie. Even though Angel ruin the surprise (twist in the movie).
