Time for another Netflix movie - The Last Station (2009) 'Set during during the last year of Russian novelist Leo Tolstoy's life...'

I kinda wanted to see that.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Its pretty mindless. And I like mindless sometimes :)

There are a lot of car chases, explosions and stuff like that. Not crude humor, but stuff that dances close to it.

I haven't really seen anything mindless for a while.

Centurion. I thought it was great! Gritty action, a proper story and a quality cast.

Amazing film, but with the two actors involved, not surprising. I knew next to nothing about Tolstoy, so ate the movie up, and read more after I got home. Need to see it again.

Finally saw Apocalypto (the Maya, just before Europeans arrived). I liked it, was totally caught up in the main character's desparate flight to escape his enemies and find his way back home to his wife and son.

'Centurion' - Was expecting a bit more from it! Half way through 'The Virgin Queen' - The BBC series from a few years ago, now this is more like it :D
