Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and Her Movie Reviews

Del finally got our Netflix DVD  Que delivery set up again so that I could get the new releases yesterday to watch. I got all comfortable and set to watch these movies with great anticipation because it’s been so long since I’ve been able to watch the new releases on the day they come out.

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

CIA analyst Jack Ryan tries to thwart a terrorist plot to bring down the U.S. economy in this action-thriller helmed by Kenneth Branagh. Chris Pine plays the title character alongside an all-star cast that includes Kevin Costner and Keira Knightley.

I was expecting this movie to be full of drama and great action packed moments. Well, I couldn’t get into it. I gave it a full 30 minutes to get good, but it never did. It was very slow. I know I’m going to be watching it again with Del so I can sleep through the boring parts and have him wake me up when it gets good since I’ve already endured that part of the movie. I know it has to get better because it has a 4.5 star rating on Netflix and I’ve read many blogger reviews stating it is a good movie. I just haven’t been patient enough.


In this sci-fi romantic comedy starring Joaquin Phoenix, love comes to a lonely young writer in the sleekest of packages when he finds himself falling for the advanced operating system he purchased to run his life.

This movie is BORING from the word go. There is nothing entertaining about this one at all. I obviously am not alone in that train of thought because it only has almost a 3 star rating on Netflix. I love me a sci-fi romance movie and was expecting this one to be a good one to watch. That didn’t happen for me.

I was quick to go back to my Orange is the New Black series.

Did you watch Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, what did you think of it?

I'm Crystal. I'm married to Dale, and mother to Johnny.Some might say that my life is perfect because I get to do all the cliché wife things like cooking, cleaning, and decorating - but there's more! I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.
