A Poet In NY was cool. I really liked it and it made me really interested in Dylan Thomas. If this was made in America it's the type of flick you definitely see being a bit more fleshed out and 2hrs with Giammatti or the late great Hoffman playing the role. Dude was a real character. The guy that played him did do a great job though, Tom Hollander. The story of Thomas again probably gives hope to dudes who don't look appealing to women but can bag them a different way.
Also just started watching this new series on BBC called The Game (I thought of the movie but nothing like it) that set in 70s London dealing with MI5 and the Cold War. Interesting to say the least so far.
The Winning Season was pretty funny. Rockwell made a pretty good story funnier. This take on a basketball team was pretty real and grounded as it gets even though they still give it a bit of a happy ending.
As much as I saw At Close Range hyped (elsewhere) I felt it wasn't that good until the middle and the end. Walken was an especially cold blooded bastard in this one. Penn wasn't particularly impressive to me in this but believable given the role. It was pretty grounded and straightforward look on a group of criminal thieves and I liked the naive approach it took on how things led to it's climax and conclusion. These kids really got in it and had no clue. What happens to the sons though
Walken's a monster in this and it's bubbling under the surface for so long until it reveals itself in the end. Mad ruthless.

Something like the criminals can't get out of working for the gov't from now on when they're offered a chance while in prison. They try to escape and they are killed. So joining is basically suicide.
Or something like that. Somebody that's actually read the comic could be more precise or correct me.

It isn't exactly 9 movies. Dub just pulled a random # out the air.
If Leto is Joker you should expect him to be in follow up Batman movies and/or SS sequel.
