The race is back!
It's sounds good, but I'm also passing on this one. Maybe when it's on cable, and I have nothing to do, I'll watch it.
Yoffy lifts a finger...
Anything wiyth Denzel in it is worth a look as far as I'm concerned.
Probably more of a rental for me than a theatre visit though.
The movie was really good, but it just didn't compare to the book for me.
