Four Films To Watch During Your Commute To Work

August 3rd, 2012 10:41am EDT

21 Jump Street Often the commute to work can be a drag, particularly if the train ride is long, you're stuck in traffic, or you're carpooling with people you'd really rather not converse with during the trip.

Sony Mobile has a solution. Why not watch TV shows or movies in high definition on the Sony Mobile Xperia ion smartphone? The device features a large 4.6-inch screen with Mobile BRAVIA® Engine.

Also, you'll have access to millions of songs, blockbuster movies, and the latest TV shows from Music Unlimited and Video Unlimited, all on the Sony Entertainment Network.

When choosing a film to watch during your commute, it's important to remember a few things. First, it shouldn't be too risque in case a bystander looks over your shoulder to see what you're watching. Also, it must be entertaining!

We've picked five recent films from various genres to help you get through that time when you're either preparing for the work day or on the way home for dinner.
1) 21 Jump Street

"21 Jump Street" is based on the television series that shot Johnny Depp to stardom. The big-screen reboot stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. They go undercover to investigate a high school drug ring and wind up experiencing the torture of their teenage years all over again.
2) Safe House

If you're not a fan of remakes, how about checking out "Safe House" starring Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington? A rookie CIA operative (Reynolds) goes on the run with a rogue former intelligence officer (Washington) after a South African safe house comes under attack by heavily armed mercenaries.

3) The Vow

If romance is more your speed, check out "The Vow," starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum (are you seeing a trend here?) The film centers on a man who tries to win back his new bride's heart after she loses her memory in a tragic car accident.

4) The Darkest Hour

Fans of sci-fi may want to watch "The Darkest Hour," a tense apocalyptic thriller centering on the fight for survival waged by five youths who find themselves stranded in Moscow during an alien invasion. Emile Hirsch stars.

5) The Secret World Of Arrietty

And if you're a child at heart, "The Secret World Of Arrietty" may be the film to see. A race of tiny people live among regular-size humans undetected until Arrietty strikes up a friendship with Shawn.
