The pure range of emotions one experiences when watching Dawn of Evil: Rise of the Reich!
Shock, disgust, hilarity and awe all flit among the shadowy recesses of your mind in this ‘biopic’ of a young Adolf Hitler, which manages to be both stupid, and offensive.
White shutters. Dry-cleaned clothes. Fresh flowers. A massive apartment in downtown New York. Nothing wrong with any of these things, except when the girl in the film is meant to be a dogwalker. These be the disgusting tales that chick flicks weave with their nail polished fingers, and we are all victims of their beautiful lies.

CSI: Las Vegas returns for Season 10, and the seedy location allows for some casino-based antics, wanderings in the desert, and enough dead prostitutes to start a zombie army. The American crime drama contains some good special effects, but even Morpheus can’t rescue the series from tired storylines and a lack of character development.
