Dog Day Afternoon USA, 1975 ☆☆☆

A failed attempt to rob a bank results in the cops, the FBI, gay activists and all sorts of curious by-standers gathering around the bank building and wait for the two robbers to give up. Instead, they demand to be taken to the airport and have a private jet take them to Algeria. It is an entertaining movie, with Al Pacino as the main robber.

The Last Exorcism USA, 2010 ☆☆☆☆

Taking again the now famous home video approach, a former exorcist and priest, along with his assistant and cameraman, decide to tell the truth about the pranks used on supposedly authentic exorcisms. After he performs an "exorcism" on a little girl, the real horror starts when she comes back to haunt him. This one seems to be a real case of possession after all. Incredible use of camera and story telling. I am surprised they can still come up with something fresh and original on the topic of exorcism.
Eat Pray Love USA, 2010 ☆☆☆

Somewhat slow-paced, but still an entertaining story about a married woman who decides to change her life radically, get a divorce and take a long trip to places she had only dreamed of going. This will turn out to be a life-changing experience for her.
