Deterrence (imdb | rotten tomatoes | buy it) was a movie I got off a list of underrated movies. I can honestly say I’d never underrated it as I’d never heard of it. It wasn’t bad, really; it looked like it could have been adapted from a play, as the whole thing took place on one set. It seemed like a Fail Safe-quality movie until the end, which let me down somewhat, but overall not a bad little movie. The most interesting thing was how prominently Uday Hussein figured in the movie, after being killed by the US last year.
Pieces Of April (imdb | rotten tomatoes | buy it) was excellent. Even my wife, who dislikes Katie Holmes a great deal, liked it. It’s really remarkable that, with practically no budget, they produced this little movie that’s SO much better than The Day After Tomorrow, which cost $125 million.
