Last night hubby and I went out on a date. Something we don’t get to do often without the kids. My cousin came over to visit and watch the kids while we went on a date we had been planning since a couple of weeks ago when we won tickets via Maple Pictures Facebook page to see the movie Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds.
I won’t ruin it for those who haven’t seen it but the movie is about an American truck driver who is abducted and wakes up buried alive in a wooden box with only a cellphone and a lighter. This isn’t your typical hostage-situation movie, it’s suspense from the beginning with a shocking twist to the end. Ryan Reynolds puts on a great performance, he’s typically known for his comedy work in movies like “Van Wilder” and “Just Friends” so it was refreshing to see him in something with a darker feel to it. Directed by Rodrigo Cortes, this movie truly would have made Hitchcock proud.
I enjoyed the movie as much as I enjoyed the time out together with my hubby. It also got my cousin and I together, we hadn’t seen each other in a while.
Thanks Maple Pictures for hosting awesome giveaways on Facebook, we had an awesome night!
