Blood Diamond Movie Review by Filmkiller (5/21/2010)

I find films that tread in the arena of important world events are often damned if they do or damned if they don't. Part of wanting more people to see it is to raise awareness and justify a budget to get the thing made right.

It could be the subject matter, which offers an unsparing look into the ravaged war-torn country of Sierra...

Blood Diamond Movie Review by Justin (3/20/2007)

And it's Tuesday again and today's topic is "Blood Diamond" starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Housou and Jennifer Connelly. I should tell you straight away that this is a nasty, brutal and difficult movie to watch. Not because it's based on a true story. No, it's because it's based on the present. While the places in the...
