Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Beautifully filmed and Cate Blanchet is still fantastic as Elizabeth. It was good, but the story was not as captivating as the first movie.
30 Days of Night - I don't watch too many horror movies these days, but I thought this movie was great! I liked that the vampires were "animalistic", I thought it was quite different from the "romanticized" version of vampires we get in most movies (where they are bad guys, but they are hot!) I actually got a little teary at the end, which is always a good sign that I connected with the characters and story. My picky gripe: I was born and raised in Alaska and I have been fortunate enough to travel north of the Arctic Circle a couple of times and I have a hard time believing that you could travel to a town that remote and that far north without seeing a significant Native Alaskan population. This town in the movie seemed to be all caucasian, with one hispanic thown into the mix.
American Gangster - Really a great movie. Interesting, suspenseful, and wonderful acting!!
