Public Enemies is a movie staring Johnny Depp as the notorius bank robber John Dilinger. Dilinger robbed banks all throughout the United States during the time of the Great Depession. Despite many attempts to stop him, police at this time did not have an answer for Dilinger and he continously robbed bank after bank without any problems. The movie itself is filled with action packed drama and egde of your seat type action. I recently bought it on blu-ray and I strongly recomend it to everyone. Johnny Depp once again out does himself as he portrays the well known theif. In addition to Depp, the cast also includes Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) who plays the detective trying to find Dilinger. Throughout the entire movie, there is a continous mind game being played between Depp and Bale's characters which once again adds to the suspense. Click here for more info on the movie.

The Final Four consisted of West Virginia, Duke, Butler, and Michigan State. In the match up between Duke and West Virginia, Duke managed to pull out the must needed win and advanced to the National Championship. Butler and Michigan St.'s game was a little more exciting based on the fact that Butler was the cinderella story of the year. Butler was not even supposed to make it to the Final Four; however, they were able to defeat Michigan St. and advance to the National Championship to play Duke.
The National Chamionship game ended up being a game to remember as Butler and Duke squared off. The David and Giliath match up ended sadly for the Butler Bulldogsas they came up one shot short of victory. Although Butler put forth quite the effort, Duke still managed to come out on top and add yet another National Championship to their trophy case.
