I have heard it was released in Japan and got great reviews. I remember on review for flags of our fathers complained that you really did not see the Japanese soldiers in the movie. I wanted to slap that loser since he knows movies so well I guess he forgot that there was a second movie dedicated to the Japaneses side of the battle.

It's only in NY and LA right now. I heard it's going wide on 12 Jan. How wide I don't know. I still didn't see Flags. According to Amazon, the Flags of our Fathers DVD is comming out February 6.

Netflix also has a Release date of February 6th, for Flags of our Fathers, I've got it saved already.

I'll also wait untill Netflix has Letters from Iwo Jima to see it.

IMDb already has a review

Would you guys that saw Letters of Iwo Jima recommend it? I just joined the Corps and my father is a Former Marine so I want to go with him but I don't want to go if it's just a bad movie.

Saw it, last night. It was good.

Well, Letters from Iwo Jima is pretty interesting movie but lot of war violence, tho. So, I don't think it's bad movie, to my opinion.

Its a good flick Wheez and for a Hollywood film pretty historically accurate by most accounts.

I couldn't call it enjoyable because I don't find body parts flying about something I "enjoy" but it was very engrossing and moving.
