Funny. I just finished watching it 20 minutes ago. I think it was straight to DVD. It was OK, but if you've seen shows like Oz, you've seen it all before. It's entertaining to watch guys with gang tats beat each other up, but the plot isn't anything that deep or original.

I wanted to rent 28 days later when I had some friends over. At the videostore by my house they have all the non-descript DVD covers and I accidentally grabbed a movie called 28 days about Sandra Bullock going into rehab. For the first 15 minutes I was just trying to wrap my head around Sandra Bullock starring in a horror movie before I realized it was the wrong thing.
The Dark Knight is right up there with The Departed for crime dramas in the last few years.
Pineapple express was not very funny. I loved Superbad, Knocked Up, liked 40-year old virgin, but pineapple express was pretty unfunny for some reason. Because of that I'm hesitant to rent strange wilderness.
No Country for Old Men has to be one of the best movies I've seen in quite sometime. It's so dark and distrubing, but the more you watch it, the more you see the comedy in it which is actually pretty funny. It's possibly the darkest most subtle comedy ever. The conversation Lewelyn Moss has with the lady at the motel and the guy at the tent store are priceless. Lewelyn's girlfriend put on a such an incredible performance as a southerner, I couldn't believe she's actually scottish with a thick accent.
I also saw "Before the Devil Knows Your Dead." Great movie about 2 brothers who plan to rob their own parents jewellry store when everything goes wrong. The story is cool because it's told backwards half the way then forwards. Marissa Tomei is smoking hot in the movie.
