This past weekend I did some catching up. It was sort of a mixed bag - but it was nice to get out and see a few things for a change. Need to start working up to the festival in just a month or so. Not really in the mood for a full review so just some quick thoughts.
Stop-Loss - Interesting film about a young traumatized solider deciding whether to run or return to Iraq when the Army won't let him leave at the end of his contract. Not a fun film, but overall pretty good
The Hammer - Sort of a surprisingly good film - or maybe one that benefits from extremely lowered expectations. I can find the star Adam Carolla funny in small doses, but he really does a nice job with this film. The story of a former golden gloves boxer (now a contractor) who gets a chance to recapture that dream - and maybe some of his life along the way. Not going to win an Academy award - but probably worth the rental when it comes to video.
