MOVIE MUSINGS: THE GIFT | RETURN TO SENDER

So I caught 2 movies in the theatres this week and I decided that I will give my two cents worth of how I feel about them. Okay, truth to be told I just think that both were not really worth watching in the theatres so just thought that I would share (hahahaha)
The genre of both movies are along the lines of Thriller, Suspense... Psychological thriller, you get my drift. I have seen my fair share of such movies and so far most of them were great!  
I will give a really brief review as I don't want to give away too much and spoil the movie :)

The Gift

When married couple Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) unexpectedly encounter Gordo (Joel Edgerton), an acquaintance from Simon's past, little do they know that their perfect lives will be thrown into a terrifying tailspin.
WELL... This movies does get you jumping at certain scenes so I would say effort for that. Interesting plot twist at the end but I felt like it could be waaaaaay better! I walked out of the cinema thinking that this movie was pretty boring and kinda sucks but it wasn't until the next day when I saw the second movie...

which brings us to, Return To Sender
A nurse living in small town goes on a blind date with a man who is not the person he says he is.
I honestly had really high hopes for this movie seeing how well Rosamund Pike did in Gone Girl. (I thought Gone Girl was such a good movie) Hence I walked into the theatres expecting this movie to meet my expectations. BUT omg, just when I thought The Gift was boring this was worst. Tons of dialogues, long and draggy scenes with one of the crappiest endings ever! Got us wondering how did the movie ever made it into the theatres?!? I would highly suggest NOT watching this in cinemas.
It was truly a disappointment :(

This was the first time I have watched 2 bad movies within a week.. not quite ready to face another disappointment soon. However, Inside Out will be out today so I'm trying my best to be hopeful for it! It had better not fail me as I've been looking forward to watch it since forever!
