Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Watched Guardians of the Galaxy again for the 3rd time. Also watched Divergent this afternoon with my wife. We liked it.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Saw American Sniper and walked out of the theater stunned. The entire 50+ audience was silent as they made their way to the lobby. I really enjoyed the film. It's similar to Black Hawk Down and Lone Survivor, probably because they were fighting similar bad guys. It's an emotional roller-coaster for anyone that has ties to the modern military actions in the Middle East or comprehends the Geo-Political crisis taking place in that part of the world. The ending just left me pissed-off that the V.A. (and the US society in general) are still *NOT* doing enough for our veterans returning from war zones. And I desperately wanted to punch Michael Moore in his fat face.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

How does American Sniper compare to Band of Brothers/Saving Private Ryan? Does it have a 'merica feel to it, or is it just a genuinely good war movie?

Haven't seen it, but having trouble parsing whether you meant Band of Brothers/Saving Private Ryan as examples of movies with "a 'merica feel" or as examples of movies without one.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

The use of 'merica is just a feeble attempt to paint all those who are unapologetically patriotic as uneducated inbreed country hillbillies. It reveals much more about the people who propagate the slander than the ones they are trying to defame. Is America perfect? No. Has America made mistakes? Yes. Does that mean we shouldn't be proud of the successes America has achieved or 'root' for America? No.

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Ah. Well then. Definitely NOT something I would consider the opposite of a genuinely good war movie.
