The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
I went into this movie thinking it was going to be "ok" simply because I didn't hear much about it when it came out. Now, looking at the average IMDb rating and the Rottentomatoes rating, I feel silly that I just saw this movie now. It was really, surprisingly good.
The main premise is intriguing enough that, for the most part, you're wondering how it's all going to end and how the characters are going to deal with their situations and the consequences. I found myself invested in the characters enough to want to see how it played out. I don't know if I'd go so far as to call it "Inception-lite" as some have described it, but its easily better than your average thriller though it does have less action. Coming from the guy who wrote the Bourne Ultimatum screenplay, I'm actually not surprised about the quality. Without spoiling anything, my 9/10 comes from the movie not only being a solid thriller, but from having two good overall messages that you just don't see in movies any more.
As a side note, this is the epitome of a perfect date movie. It mixes a great concept and thrills with a nice dose of romance that, in my opinion, didn't feel out of place one bit.
