Default Re: Science Saturday: Christmas Optimism Edition (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Short reviews on the movies mentioned by John Horgan:

"Black Swan" - A newly anointed Swan Queen goes absolutely nuts in this ballad of blood, sex, and halluciation.

"Somewhere" - A hard driving Hollywood actor re-examines his life after his 11 year old daughter surprises him with a visit.

My take on two movies seen on DVD:

"The Killer Inside Me" - The second remake of a film taken from a book by noted pulp noir author Jim Thompson. It is about a somewhat low-key sheriff's deputy in smalltown West Texas who commits over the top graphic violence against women he's intimately involved with for reasons that escape me.

"The Trial" - The tragedy of a losing his wife and two sons in an auto accident has forced a lawyer overcome by grief to abandon his practrice and was brought to the precipice of suicide. Fortunately, he gets back to work, redeems himself through faith, and and successfully defends a young man wrongfully accused of murder.
