    The Intern 2015

    I surprisingly really liked this movie. Yes it's predictable, yes it's cheesy at times, but there's also a lot of great things in it. First, a successful female CEO that is relatable. The issues of work vs family, getting replaced at a job you love, finding friendship in unexpected places are all things we've experienced but that are rarely portrayed in movies. On top of that, the way they depict startups is exactly spot on. Despite its flaws (the theft scene), this is a fun movie that breathes new life into a genre that is a little tired.

The aliens are really well done too, they don't need to be ultra-detailed CGI creatures to be scary. And the ending is fantastic.

This film features a great cast of women that can stand their own in a fight. I also love that it's okay with having long stretches when no character says a word. It's not trying to be anything else than what it is: an incredibly well done action movie. And…

    The way the movie was directed made me think of a video game. Someone asked Ghost Rider to complete a mission in exchange for something.
