'The Next Three Days' Lives In The Gray

November 23rd, 2010 12:10am EST
The Next Three Days
While viewing Paul Haggis’ thriller “The Next Three Days,” an ancient expression comes to mind: love conquers all. In this film, an average man’s overwhelming love for his wife compels him to make a series of morally questionable choices. Ultimately these decisions will test his strength of will because they involve inhabiting in an ethically gray area most people never visit during their lifetime.

John (Russell Crowe) and Laura’s (Elizabeth Banks) picturesque life is thrown into chaos when Laura is arrested under suspicion of murder. With a wealth of serious evidence against her, L...

'Unstoppable' Review: 'Two Jews On Film' Aren't On The Same Track (Video)

Unstoppable

HALLOWEEN II
I have not had the chance to see "Inglourious Basterds" yet, but I'm hoping to catch it in the next couple of days. From the people I have spoken with that have seen it already, it's supposed to be really entertaining.

Other films in my current backlog include "District 9" which I've only heard positive feedback about, and the Paul Giamatti comedy "Cold Souls."
