Masterminds, is much funnier than I expected. I truly laugh so many times and I wasn’t the only one.

Synopsis: In this action comedy inspired by true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre), David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work-crush Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.
Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash…only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall. Now on the lam and in over his head, David must dodge the authorities, evade a hilarious hit man, Mike McKinney (Jason Sudeikis), and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most.

Mrs Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
I think this is one of director Tim Burton’s best film in quite a while. It is based upon the best-selling novel, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” Which is part of a series of books for young adults. In Burton’s film, we get an unforgettable motion picture experience.
