    A great one...

    "Fargo" on TV - so funny, in a dark way of course.

          How was that? I see all these Iraq movies and assume they are anti-war.

            This would come under the same heading Biscuit. I generally like Tommy Lee Jones in things and he played a retired Army MP investigator who's son just returned form Iraq. Sarandon had a small but good role, Charlize Theron was the weakest I thought but didn't wear make-up, a plus.

            I thought the details in the plot at least offered something new. Of course these movies always have to take a worst case situation for the story, of an "average" soldier, not super secret, special ops, best of the Seals, Ramboesque characterization.

            I am glad I saw it but would not care to see it again. Bear in mind, I usually don't watch as a movie critic. Steve

              I took my youngest son to see City of Ember, it was all right.

                  I just watched this last night after recommendations by the Napoleonic Forum.

                  Very good film. Highly recommend it.!

                      Speaking of movies and the Middle East, has anyone watched "The Kingdom"? I thought it was quite good, particularly the ending.

                        Shikoku - Japanese horror flick. A mother goes on a pilgrimage - in order to bring back to life - her dead daughter. Some weak parts but generally pretty good.

                                Just saw these three this week;

                                The Day the Earth stood still-garbage,don't waste your time
                                Stepbrothers-not as good as Talledega Nights,but it is a fun one.
                                The Mummy 3(4?)-not a bad film,great action and is a worthy sequel.
                                If the art of war were nothing but the art of avoiding risks,glory would become the prey of mediocre minds. Napoleon
