So my brother was here this weekend so I moved up to the top of my queue a couple movies he might like: Breach and Blood Diamond. We watched Breach together and both liked it. It's about the FBI agent, Robert Hansen, who committed the worst breach of intelligence in US history. Chris Cooper, who is such an awesome actor, was Robert Hansen, and Ryan Philipe, was the underling who helped out him. It was an action movie without boring car chases and shoot outs. Worth seeing!
Blood Diamond,I saw last night and was riveted eventhough there were a lot of shoot outs and even car chases. It was about the diamond trade in Sierra Leone when the rebels or RUF were trying to overthrow the government with the help boy soldiers. Not going to be able to spell his name, Djmon Hansou? played a father trying to reunite with his family. His son was one of the seriously messed up/ drugged up boy soldiers, and Leanordo DiCaprio played a diamond smuggler with a terrible past that made him a not very nice guy. Does he help the poor father and his family? Does he get the pretty journalist played by Jennifer Connely? Does he turn into a real upstanding guy? This is for you to find out. Well worth seeing and those of the faint of heart can fast foward withEnglish subtitles. (that's what I do when it is getting too scary).
