Devil in the Details

Back to @leiabox's documentary list I sat down with Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005) and became more infuriated as it went along. And it's a long film. Just disgusting what these asshats got away with and the people that suffered. 7 / 10

Due Date (2010) was a library quick pick and marginally okay despite not being a bit plausible. That is the film's biggest problem; with the setup it provides in the intro it is unlikely any of this would transpire. RDjr's character could've had money wired to him or found another way to get transportation thus avoiding the entire journey with Galifianakis. Not a smart movie but I laughed at a few the gags. 6.5 / 10

The Brotherhood of Satan (1971) was a rare OnDemand flick I decided watch after Mitch (@DoctorGore) mentioned it on twitter. Not a great movie but I always enjoy these 70s devil worship films. Plot from imdb: "A family is trapped in a desert town by a cult of senior-citizens who recruit the town's children to worship Satan." 6.5 / 10
