You must go see "The Road" with Viggo Mortensen if it is still playing in a theater near you, or rent it as soon as the Blu-Ray is released. Easily my favorite film of the last 12 months, probably in my top five of the last decade. I won't tell you anything about it other than it is a post-apocalyptic tale of a father and son struggling to survive in a cold world filled with cannibals and crazies. Mortensen is excellent as always, but the unknown kid actor really steals the show. It's an incredible film. I don't agree with how the apocalypse will take place if the globalists aren't stopped, but it does seem a realistic depiction of what we can expect life to be like if we were (un)lucky enough to survive the kill. This is not a date movie, and definitely do not take children to it, but it is quite well done. Do yourself a favor and drop $10 on a ticket or $30 for the Blu.
