Just saw the movie Defiance this weekend. It was pretty good. It is a WWII movie about survival against the Germans. A good, realistic plot without overdoing special effects. I recommend it along with Taken.
In addition, I rent from Redbox and enjoy their service. If you are tired of Blockbuster and their shenanigans they are a good alternative if they are in your area.
I will admit it does start slow and probably isn't a movie I would want to see late in the evening as it is a little longer than the average film. However, it is still a good movie and is actually based on a true story which gives it a little more weight in my book.
BTW, I also just saw Miracle At Saint Anna and was not impressed. It is a decent movie, but certainly not a good one or a must see. If you have the choice, I would probably opt for something else than this one.
