I've watched a couple of good movies in the last few weeks. Funny enough they had some of my favorite male leads. I grew up with these guys from their first TV roles and have this huge admiration for them (and they look pretty good too :)
The second movie was Derailed. I'm not going to spoil the plot, but I will say I really didn't like the first half of the movie--just shows how we get programmed to expect our heroes to act in a certain way, so a cheating husband (even with enormous family pressures) wasn't what I wanted. I cringed through those scenes up until Clive Owen finally took control and got one over on the bad guys--who were VERY convincing. Vincent Cassel was wonderful, a Frenchman with a mean streak. Beautifully done. I was trying to remember when I first saw Clive and realized it must have been in the 80's in a TV series called Boon. Then he started his rise to fame in Chancer and I think I fell in love with him in Second Sight. Sigh.
