- Based on a true story, a lawyer takes on the case of a nurse who got AIDS after being pricked by a needle. His fight pits him against the system itself, which is trying to prevent the sale of a safer syringe that will prevent such things from happening. Along with the case, our lawyer is battling demons of his own... prostitues and heavy drug use. Chris Evans stars and I got this one after seeing him in The Avengers
. The movie also suggests that needle pricks are quite common and that the AIDS epidemic in Africa is due to reused needles and not unprotected sex. I found this to be a decent movie worth watching. It also has an ending that leaves you wondering about something in particular that happens. If you choose to watch, you'll know what I'm talking about.

- The story of Amelia Earhart. Stars Hilary Swank, Richard Gere and Ewan McGreggor. Christopher Eccleston is also in it. When I saw him, I couldn't place him until I saw his name in the credits. The movie tries to be grand with a big motion picture look and feel, but storywise, it lacks whatever makes a movie engaging.

- A slice of life comedy drama set in the 70s against the backdrop of a lyme disease scare. Stars one of the Culkin brothers, Emma Roberts, Alec Baldwin, Julia Nixon, Timothy Hutton and whatsherface from Crossing Jordan
. Lyme disease can cause mental problems and because of that, I think the title is also a play on the craziness that goes on in the lves of the characters. The movie isn't very good, but it gets more interesting about two thirds in.
