Dragon Tattoo, American version.

Powerful, . Not exactly fun for the family.

The Eagle - not new, saw it on HBO. I wasn't expecting much and it was a little better than expectations. Not a complete waste of time.

The Fog is a John Carpenter movie from 1980, and it beats watching a ceiling fan for 85 minutes.

That's all that matters in the end. But you should try watching it from the beginning sometime.

The Proposition

It's been a while since I've watched this one. I love this movie. Probably my favorite western (in a non-traditional sort of way).

The Last King of Scotland
Forest Whitaker certainly deserved his Best Actor Oscar but it's a performance in a movie with a boneheaded screenplay. The story takes the wrong direction at the outset, needing to give us a fictional white character to follow, a doctor portrayed by James McAvoy (Charles Xavier from X-Men First Class). A genocidal, crazy world leader isn't enough of a story apparently, so we follow the good doctor around through his sexual conquests and his descent into a symbolic hell. (Hey, that sounds pretty good.) McAvoy's not as good as Whitaker in this film, and the movie drags whenever Whitaker's off-screen.

I rented that recently. Hadn't seen it in ages. So much fun revisiting it!
