    Blood Diamond - B+ - I was really surprised by how good this turned out to be. Might be Leo's best work to date even with the dodgy accent. Best of all JC has returned from emaciation land to regain her hottitude!

    At least from the films I've seen, Zwick is one of those directors where I can be entertained by the action scenes enough that I overlook the EXTREMELY IMPORTANT MESSAGE that he insists on pounding into your heard with a sledgehammer. "Glory" is the best example of that, and one I actually bought on purpose..."The Last Samurai" is a guilty pleasure that I got as one of those free DVDs when signing up for a club.
