    I saw High Crimes (2002) with Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman and loved it. It's billed as a crime thriller...tag line...Everything you trust. Everything you know. May be a lie...

    Also, a movie called Trophy Wife (2006) (also known as Murder on Spec) which was a great crime/drama/mystery! No big name actors. Very interesting plot.

    Both worth renting. Two thumbs up

    misskitty, I really liked High Crimes, too. I haven't seen it for awhile so I might have to rent that one again next time I go.

    I watched Amazing Grace last night. The topic was intriguing - it was about the guy who helped eliminate the English slave trade (between the East Indies and the US). Although there were some good moments and some very good actors, the overall movie was fairly slow moving. There was benign scene of a guy on his deathbed toward the end that for some reason put me in a very gloomy mood - I got preoccupied by it and it distracted me from the last portion of the movie. I guess I expected more from this one...

    I loved that movie so much! It gave me chills listening to how the slaves were treated on those ships, though. I'm still haunted by my own mental images of what they were describing.

    Just watched this one...I agree about the ending being a letdown. But the rest of the movie was damn good (helloooo Viggo! ).

    We rented Saw IV. It just wasn't as good as the first one. I think it was directed by a different person too.
    Yup, with donuts!!

    I think on some level I must have been comparing it to the movie Amistad, which had a much greater impact on me.

    I remember Amistad left me feeling disturbed. When they drowned all of the chained-together people in the ocean by making them all jump overboard, I think time stood still for me. The visual was too much.

    The Brave One with Jodie Foster.

    I liked it. It was intense, brought up a good discussion in our house afterwards about vilgiante justice that was interesting.

    I have to post my husbands opinon of the movie though because I thought it was funny.
    "a touchy-feely Death Wish with Jodie Foster instead of Charles Bronson".

    I however, liked it. She had a lot more dilemna than Bronson did and remorse.
