Well, it took forever but I finally got to see a couple of DVDs:
28 Days Later
I'd have to say that this movie wasn't what I was expecting, but then I can't exactly remember what I was expecting. Stephen's verdict was that I should hire "normal" DVD's from now on.
I remember when this film came out it had a really big impact on my best friend Heather. Despite this and despite being mad about Ryan Gosling, I just never got around to seeing it.
I remember being surprised when Adrien Brody won the Oscar for Best Actor for this film because I had not heard of the film at that time. I need not have been concerned though. This film is an absolute masterpiece and Brody's performance is absolute moving and superb. This film is the true story of Wladyslaw Szpilman's struggle to survive and escape persecution at the hands of the Nazi invaders in Warsaw. This film is epic and the story remains important today. Make sure you see it.
