My Movie Reviews - Shutter Island

In my house,we love movies.My husband and I have done the theater,drive-in and of course home viewing(which is my favorite).I love to unwind with a snack,my husband and the remote.This weekend we had a chance to view a few new movies -THANKS Blockbuster.Our local Speedway has installed a Blockbuster kiosk just 2 minutes from my door..woo-hoo! Now I can grab a movie while we get gas and go.

The first movie on my list this week was Shutter Island

I have been waiting to see this movie forever it seems.So long in fact I forgot I wanted to see it.
I was impressed with everything in this one.I love when Leo has an accent,it makes the role better for me.I won't give away too much in case you have never seen it.I am just giving my thoughts and opinions.

The movie starts with Leo DiCaprio playing a State Marshall.He and his partner are  trying to solve a missing persons case, at a mental institution, on an island where nothing is quite as it seems.As Leo fights to uncover just what is happening in this strange place, you see flashbacks of him and the Nazis during WWII.The plot twists with tidbits thrown in here and there about the Marshall and his past,and finally turns completely to change the entire view of the film.I was pleasantly surprised by the turn of events, and can honestly say I never saw it coming.I would recommend seeing it if you love a good in depth film.

I was not compensated for this post in any way.I am simply sharing my movie finds.
Have A Great Day

You know I didn't see the ending coming either. In a way I was mildly disappointed because I was expecting to see a horror/thriller movie. But it was still a good movie that held me till the end.
