Movie mini-reviews

  • Valkyrie: Pretty good, but I wish they had shown how the conspiracy started. Cruise was OK.
  • Defiance: I liked it, despite a couple of instances when Daniel Craig's character makes eloquent, articulate speeches totally uncharacteristic of his rough-hewn, poorly educated background. Some of what appear to be movie clich├ęs (e.g. the white horse) were true, according to someone who met one of the brothers. (I have also heard that white horses are quite common in that area.)

Just added Defiance to my Netflix queue... thanks!

So Netflix let's you ask for films that aren't out on DVD yet? Actually Defiance isn't even in general release across the country, so you may have a bit of a wait.
