    It is a moving movie, pro American soldier and anti-war at the same time. It is an amazing piece of work by an 84 year old Clint Eastwood.
    That was pretty much the same experience I had today. I don't see how it's gotten this wrap as being "rah-rah war!" There wasn't a lot to feel good about.

    I agree. There were a lot of pro-war movies made during World War II, with John Wayne heroics that might fire up the audience to want to enlist-that sure wasn't the reaction I got from watching American Sniper. There is also a genre of war movies that for all of the tension and battle seem to make war to be almost a lark, stuff like Force Ten From Navarone and Clint Eastwood's costarring role in Where Eagles Dare. American Sniper does not depict war as in any way as being a lark.
    I am aware of some of the controversy regarding Chris Kyle. I do not have that much in common with him and I sure do not have his courage or his skills with a rifle. I would not want to be him and I am glad I do not have some of his personality traits.
    Watching the movie, and its depiction of what Kyle and his colleagues went through, the closing line from another movie, one made before I was born, ran through my mind. In 1954's The Bridges at To-ko Ri, Fredric March's character reflects on the airmen he commands and says: "Where do we get such men?"
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    Watched Odd Thomas on Netflix last night. It was somewhat interesting and entertaining. Cgi was a bit sci-fi channel, but didn't hurt the movie too much. Was shocked to see the movie only made $600k on a $27 mil budget.

    I would give it a 5.5/10. Worthwhile Netflix watch if you like movies about the paranormal.

    I've thought about watching that one. I remember reading the book, for some reason in my late teens/early 20s I read several Dean Koontz books, but I can't remember if I liked it or not.

    I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. It's worth the time for anyone looking for something to watch.

    I've been to see this movie twice, the 1st time I couldn't finish it. My time in Ramadi Iraq overlapped his 2nd and 3rd tours, so when they got to the scene where Marc Lee dies, I couldn't take it for reasons I care not to talk about. Then I had some Army buddies that wanted to go see it the other night so I went. To me this movie was perfect! I hear people talk about it's not 100% true, it's a movie of course it's not. When the movie was over it was as you stated, dead silent. People just filed out and didn't say much. GREAT MOVIE!!!

    I highly recommend the movie "The One I Love" with Mark Duplas and Elizebeth Olson. It's streaming on Netflix and not to give anything away, I'll just say it's original.

    I had a marvelous time. My jaw was dropped for the entirety of that gunfight inside the church. Mark Strong is a wonderfully typecast character actor.

    That said, was the extremely thinly-written female character who became the new Lancelot another of Vaughn's homages to 1970s James Bond? She couldn't even have one line of dialogue with a little character development?

    Generally agree.

    I hated "Chef" and I liked "Whiplash" a little bit more than you.

    Locke a 4/10!?!?! If I was friends with Boss your RZ account would be deleted by the end of the day.

    Locke was one of my favorite movies of the year.

    It's been a while but I think I found Buried to be a little ridiculous, it was worth watching but not on the level of Locke.
