In Honor of Memorial Day

I thought I'd put out some War Movies, by war.

American Revolution - The Patriot (2000)
American Civil War - Glory (1989)
WW I - Lawrence of Arabia (1962)
WW II - Windtalkers (2002)
Korea - M*A*S*H (1970)
Vietnam - Apocalypse Now (1979)
Invasion of Granada - Heartbreak Ridge (1986)
Gulf War I - Courage Under Fire (1996)
Current Mess - The Hurt Locker (2009)

And thank you to those serving ... even if I do think we should be (generally) out of the current occupation zones.

Review A-Team

I watched this last year (June 15, 2010)... Can't figure out why I don't have a post on it.

Overall, a fun movie ... had  some really fun bits, somewhat over the top in places, but it's a blockbuster ... so to be expected. Things that I remember that stick out. The german woman at the lake, the grenade bit, etc. But where the movie really failed was the finale ... TOO OVER THE TOP. Still, was a fun run and worth catching. Biggest note is that I was obviously tired ... it was several days after watching I figured out how Faceman got the key.
