Tuesday Afternoon Movie Club

Da Realist:

I don't know if y'all are into these kind of films but i gotta recommend "letters from iwo jima". it's based on the world war 2 battle of iwo jima from the japanese perspective. it's an EXCELLENT film. it's hard hitting and makes you think about things in a way different than just your perspective.

And this is late, but if you haven't already seen "The Pianist", please do. it's based on a true story. it's about the holocaust told from the perspective of a Pol.

I'm kind of a world war 2 buff so this stuff interests me. but you don't have to be into the subject to realize they are two really good movies. rent 'pianist' and go see 'letters from iwo jima' at the theatre.


Now I remember when one G told a young buck that when you have the baby forget going anywhere for at least the first 6 months and possibly the year. And now this same G rubs going to the movies in my face :-)? I'll check out Pianist but Letters will wait until it hits DVD...

Question what other WWII or war movies you like? Me THin Red Line, Saving Private Ryan, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon are always winners with me.

Da Realist:

'saving private ryan' was a good one. 'life is beautiful' was ok, too. of course, 'shindler's list'. i think 'the pianist' and 'letters...' hold their own, though.

and yeah, you're right about that... i keep forgetting you have a baby. ;-)

Gangsta D:

300 comes out on Friday.
