Weekend

I have been sort of under the weather with Flu and a soar throat. I watched a couple of interesting movies over the weekend including Traitor and Mamma Mia. The latter was pure entertainment, it was a musical with the ever so green and sexy Pearce Boson in the lead.

Traitor was good thriller based on current events. Don Cheadle was great. Traitor did a very good job of stepping on the audience's toes with some lines that could have been considered prejudiced, and then catching themselves with actual truths about the war in the Middle East, in addition to religions themselves. This obviously takes place in the dialog of the characters, particularly those of Cheadle and Guy Pearce. The film's dialog is well written,

On another note i have been very encouraged to write almost daily because of the feedback that i have been getting on the blog. Its great and motivating. Thanks to everyone!

I too watched Traitor this weekend and enjoyed the movie. I think Don Cheadle did an awsome job portraying this very complex individual. I would have to say that this was his best role since Hotel Rwanda.
I hope, Z, that you feel better soon. Take care and God bless...

@manpower - Wow, those are very motivating comments. Thanks.

I found Traitor to be disappointing -- rather dull.

It frequently over-rationalized its ideas, leaving me limp from lack of excitement.

Cheadle's performance was unimpressive.

@mustafa - Come on. Cheadle was highly impressive in my opinion. I though a sensitive topic was explored in a different way in that movie.
