The Virgin Suicides (1999)

This is the story of the Lisbon sisters; Lux, Cecilia, Bonnie, Therese, and Mary, who reside in Michigan in a nice suburban neighborhood. Four boys who live near them become obsessed with the girls in the summer of 1974. When their youngest sister Cecilia takes her own life, the boys start to collect souvenirs of them as they learn about the girls' lives. When Lux gets in trouble after coming home late one night, she and the other girls are taken out of school and isolated from everything and everybody, except for the four boys whom they secretly contact. Emotionally tragic and haunting film, based on the novel by Jeffrey Eugenides and wonderfully directed by Sofia Coppola. Starring Kirsten Dunst, Josh Hartnett, James Woods, Kathleen Turner, Scott Glenn, Danny Devito, A.J. Cook 8/10 Rated R

This Means War (2012)

Tuck and FDR are best friends who work as CIA operatives. Lauren is a product tester trying to deal with her recent break-up and the fact that she runs into her ex and his new fiancee everywhere. Encouraged by her obnoxious friend Trish to start dating again, she suggests online dating and without her permission makes a profile for Lauren on an online dating site. From the dating site Lauren meets Tuck and they hit it off right away, while she just so happens to meet FDR and coincidentally the guys end up falling for the same girl. Typical cliched rom-com, and if it wasn't for the chemistry between Hardy and Pine it would not be worth the viewing. Starring Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine, Tom Hardy, Angela Bassett 6/10 Rated PG-13
