Downfall   3/18/10

By now, anyone who keeps up with good cinema has probably heard about this film. Told mostly through the eyes of Hitler's personal secretary during the siege of Berlin in the spring of 1945, it chronicles the Nazi leader's final days spent in a bunker under the Chancellery as Russian forces close in.

[i]The Mist[/i] is one of those films that forces me to evaluate my discomfort and admit to myself (or not) that it did its job and I should be satisfied.

[i]Superman Returns[/i], having spring-boarded off two existing films shot over twenty years ago, rushes to catch up with the times in the first hour while still identifying itself with its predecessors.
