There are so many movies that come out each year that it is not easy to choose a favorite or to even know which movie is the best one to watch. The good news is that there are many surprise movies out this year to choose from. Those who do not like the same old fare that is offered every year can appreciate these special hits that came out of the blue:
• Catfish – It is not easy to find movies that can bring the viewer any surprises. It seems as though everything has already been done and anything new is just regurgitation, sometimes poorly, of past movies. Also, many movies are so highly advertised that you can pretty much get the entire movie by watching all of the trailers for them. This is the best aspect of Catfish. It is a documentary type movie that has not had a great deal of press. There is simply a great storyline with twists and turns that are not expected because they are not known to the audience before they view it. If you are looking for a movie that gives you great visuals as well as some surprises then this movie is for you.
• A Surprise in Texas – With all the movies coming out this year featuring 3D and every scene filled with action, it is nice to see a movie that actually offers some surprises and is just based on a great story. Not every movie has to have an explosion or special effects to get the point of it across to the audience. A Surprise in Texas offers this and more with a simple story about a piano competition in San Antonio Texas. The story features a pianist from Tokyo who goes on to win the competition. This is based on a true story which is a rare find as well and is based on the competition from 2009.
These are only two of the movies that offer more than the average movie in the theater these days. They do not rely on high budgets and tons of effects or make up. They just tell a great story and offer the viewer a chance to get into someone else’s life for a while. There is great acting and plots which is so rare. Anyone who wants to watch a great movie and who does not need to have all the flash can enjoy either one of these movies.
