Hotel Rwanda – I watched this movie this afternoon. I’m still in shock at the ugliness of the world. I thought I knew ‘enough’ about what happened in Rwanda, but this movie reveals true ugliness. People slaughtering neighbours for stupid reasons. The entire white world rescuing their ‘own kind’ from Rwanda, leaving the Africans to kill each other. Almost a million people were killed over about 100 days. I won’t forget this movie for a long time. 5/5 stars.
SuperBad – This movie is hilarious. If you’ve liked the humour of Judd Apatow other movies, like Knocked Up and the 40 Year Old Virgin, then you’ll like this one. It’s about 3 guys graduating from high school who end up on crazy one night adventure involving the quest for alcohol and women. 4/5 stars.
The Departed – I know this movie has been out for ages too, but finally Jeff and I got to see it. We heard it was really good so we waited until we had a chance to watch it together. It really was a good movie. Your brain is working like crazy trying to figure out how all the plot lines were going to fall into place. 4/5 stars.
The Bourne Ultimatum – I confess, I haven’t seen the first two movies, but I had a vague idea of the story line (I think I’ve seen part of the first one on TV) and Jeff gave me a 5 minute intro before we started. It was a good movie. Lots of action. The interaction between two of the characters drove me nuts so I’m only giving it a 3/5.
