I saw State of Play today. Really liked it.
Predictable is not bad if it is sufficiently developed. I don't think you always have to throw the audience a changeup. It was lacking in development, and would probably have worked better in book format where it could be fleshed out and still retain the longer segments of character development.
I watched Dark Days with one of my friends this afternoon on Netflix Instant. Interesting little doc.
