Changeling

As great as this movie is, and it is great, it's not Eastwood's best.

Mystic River and Million Dollar Baby are hard to top.

But Angelina Jolie is first-rate in this movie and the dirty cops rachet the tension up so high… mercy… I don't even know what else to say about this movie.

Be prepared to be aggravated at the world we live in.

That's all I'm saying.

Rocknrolla

I don't care what you think, I love Guy Ritchie films. He's not a great director, but his stories are always lush with characters and situations. Even if one looks a lot like another, he always comes up with great characters in unbelievable situations.

Rocknrolla is most like Layer Cake, but it's still great in its own right.

I'm not a fan of Gerard Butler, but I loved the rest of the cast. Archie (played by Mark Strong) makes the movie. He's perfect balance for this film.
