That's because you're fun to pick on. You don't get upset (usually) like some people, and you give as good as you get.

But, if you really want me to quit, consider it done, Sir.

You actually liked wind talkers? I thought was the crappiest war movie I've seen since "Behind enemy lines".

I saw this movie yesterday and thought it was great, the beach landings were awsome, much better than Saving private Ryan and agree, what a S***y way to treat them after the war.
One thing I'm curious is when the guy falls overboard and someone makes the comment that they (the amada) wouldn't stop to pick him up, would that actually have happened. I understand that it was an important battle and that speed would have been of the essence but there were a lot of ships there (or at least that was the impression the movie gave).

Flags of Our Fathers is out standing. I went and saw it with a friend who was a former Marine. He said the movie was dead on. Who ever said there was a liberal bias to the movie is looking way too deep into the movie. Parading those guys around declaring them heros is exactly what happened. FYI, if I were paraded like that, I would have been

My favorite part was at the end when there was a slide show of real photographs from the battle and the "dog and ponie show." And its no surprise that the Clint made those photos into scenes in the movie. I cannot wait for the movie depecting the Japanese side of the story to come out. I remember reading some critic complain about not seeing much of the Japanese in the movie. All I could think about was "you idiot, you'll get you fill of Japanese soldiers in the next film (Letters from our Fathers I think)."

FYI, if I were paraded around like that, I would be as drunk as the Native American

I saw it two nights ago. I went with great expectations and came out of the cinema a little - only a little - disappointed.

The movie is definately good. It had some moving scenes that make you admire the real people the film is based on and there were some fantastic special effects, but it's not up there with Saving Private Ryan or the series 'Band of Brothers.' It's probably along side, or a little better, than 'Pearl Harbour.' Some of the acting was corny and I don't know about others but the editing - the jumping back and forth in the story telling, was done in a way that was distracting rather than informative / entertaining.

I'd give it 7 / 10, but wont be buying the DVD.
