Ok, so it’s been a while since my last post.  At this point in the challenge, I’m only 10 or so films behind.  Here’s the list of excuses as to why I’m behind on my movie watching and not blogging:

1. Chicago Blackhawks making it through the playoffs and winning the Stanley Cup. (W00T!)
2. Season Tickets to the Chicago White Sox.
3. Started a new job in the city that keeps me extremely busy throughout the day.
4. Using every last available minute to look for a new house in Chicago.

Well now that I’m settled in a bit more at work and I’ve narrowed down my house search, I’ll be able to take some time for a bit more reviewing.  So, off we go again with the film I’ve most recently watched:

Unthinkable

Starring:
Samuel L. Jackson, Carrie-Anne Moss, Michael Sheen

Unthinkable is a shocking psychological thriller in which a former U.S. military specialist turned muslim terrorist, Steven Arthur Younger aka Yousef (Michael Sheen – “The Damned United”, “The Special Relationship”), has planted nuclear bombs in different locations around the United States.  It is the job of a Black Ops interrogator ‘H’ (Samuel L. Jackson – “Pulp Fiction”, “Iron Man 2″) to pry the location of the bombs from him before they detonate in a few days time.  Agent Brody (Carrie-Anne Moss – “The Matrix”, “Disturbia”) is pulled in to the mix when her FBI Counter-terrorism Unit is brought in for assistance in locating the bombs; little does she know of the horrors that will consume her over the next few days.

To say that I’d even hear of this film before now would be a lie.  But of all of the films that I have seen this year, this is one of the best, yet chilling movies of all; I wouldn’t be suprised to see Michael Sheen nominated for an award for his performance in his role. 

I’m usually very good at predicting the ending of a film, but this one had me guessing at every step of the way and swearing at disbelief of the atrocities that were about to be committed.  To say anything more would be to give away the entire film.  Needless to say, this is definitely a must watch in my book, although you might be reeling at some parts.
