A History of Violence

Sunday, October 2nd, 2005

With eight bad guys shot and two slain, A History of Violence lives up to the violence part in the title, I guess. Other than that, don’t expect much. Sure, the head wounds are pretty graphic. But moral conflict? Search of conscience? Dilemma? Evolving characters? Shades of grey? Ambiguities? Anything that would actually make it interesting? Nah…

Still, it manages to get overall positive reviews.

Lord of War

Saturday, October 1st, 2005

Somehow, Lord of War lacks substance. Or something. Mixed reviews.

Maybe I should just lower my expectations?

On the other hand, Netflix has been really good recently.
