Sean + I are pretty addicted to watching movies. We usually rent at LEAST two movies per week, and then watch On Demand movies the other five nights (I think Sean has watched Home Alone every Saturday night since November). Well, last night we picked up some malted milk ball gelato (whaoooo... so delish) and cuddled up to the movie Buried.
Ryan Reynolds plays a U.S. contract worker who drives a supply van in Iraq. His character, Paul, wakes up to find that he is tied up and buried in what seems to be a coffin -- the entire movie takes place under ground, and Paul is given a lighter, his anxiety medication, a flask, and a cell phone. He has until 9 o'clock to get 1 million dollars from the U.S. government or the terrorists will kill him (and possibly his family, as they stole his driver's license).
I kid you not this is the most intense movie I have ever seen! We went in knowing that this movie would either be epic or too boring to finish... and we were definintly surprised by how much we not only bonded with Paul, but felt anxiety as he did everything in his power to survive. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that it was even more nerve wracking than 127 Hours.
If you haven't seen this movie yet... I suggest you run as fast as you can to your nearest Red Box, Blockbuster, Netflix, or wherever else it is that you get your movies and rent this! I promise you will not be dissapointed!
