I vowed to take it easy this month; last month's events nearly ruined me.

And with the upcoming release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part one, on November 19, I have decided that I'll devote this month to HP, review the books, review the films. Don't roll your eyes, now, there's more.

In order to not completely alienate myself or lead everyone to believe that I've gone soft, I am coupling the Harry Potter series with eight other films, films with an edge: (two sides, one is light, one is dark?)

1. Dirty Harry
2. Paths of Glory
3. Beverly Hills Cop
4. Beverly Hills Cop 2
5. Bad Lieutenant 
6. The Last King of Scotland
7. The Departed
8. 8mm

I think the playing field is even. Any suggestions for further edge-y films? Let me know.
