The Adult Summer Reading program has ended, and the Foreign Film Series with it. My name is Khan was one of the movies picked for the series, but I hadn't gotten around to seeing it yet. Until this week. I sat down to watch it, with pleasant expectations of a big Bollywood movie, lots of singing and dancing.

Disappointed! That sums it up--I had such high expectations for the comic and ironic possibilities of Cowboys & Aliens and its stars! Don't rush off and say I panned it--the movie is well done, and the acting is good, including Geoffrey Rush as a drunk (this guy always surprises me).
Reluctance probably describes my attitude toward the movie We were soldiers as my family began watching it. I dislike violence in movies, especially gratuitous, meaningless violence. But gratuitous couldn't ever describe this movie, even though it is rated R and contains a large amount of very graphic death and dismemberment.
