    Saw a preview of Green Zone, and since I'm a fan of the Bourne movies I will probably see it as well. Anybody else going to see it?

    You should like it if you like the Jason Bourne movies. It looks like a re-tread. Same conspiracy stuff. Some anti-Americanism.

      OK, so I gather that this movie flopped at the box office, despite coming in second.

      Anyone actually seen this movie yet? Any reviews?

        I saw it on opening weekend. I like conspiracy movies but didn't care for this one. Anti-American, anti-military as well, portraying SF as the bad guys, you'd think this movie was made in '79. The action scenes are well done but you can hardly see them since the cameraman shakes the camera like he's going through withdrawl. Of course, of you're into Bourne movies, you'll be used to that but it's a filming style I can't stand. They say it gives it a realistic documentary style but I've seen cell camera footage more stable than that.

          It would have been a good movie 4 years ago when this wasn't redundant.

            Now come to think of it, the jerky camera movements in the Bourne movies seemed to get worse from movie to movie!

            I suppose when you run out of fresh ideas, that's the kind of stuff you rely on.

            Anyway, can't say I'm surprised. Matt Damon isn't really that great an actor. Besides the Bourne movies, I can't even remember any movie of his.

                  I watched that one.

                  Can't remember if he was good in the movie or not. Just remembered that it was boring.

                    People have been saying this is anti-american but I tend to think it's more anti-Bush. Which I early stated is redundent. As for the anti-miltary I think that they painted the US Army as people who were mislead by Bush.

                      I saw it and would agree about the Bourne like movie. I did come out of it thinking the conspiracy was a little overdone. I disagree that it was anti-American. Rather, it highlighted the fact the Bremer and the administration made catastrophic errors by dismantling the Iraqi military.

                        Well, that much is true. It was a terrible mistake.

                          You may be right, I've gotten that a lot from hippie-types.

                          Anyway, not on my list of films to watch. Comes in somewhere between infomercials and Gilmore Girls reruns.

                            Im skipping watching this one especaially because of the anti Ami and SF crap in it. Liberal hollywoodland can go to hell for all i care.

                            Oh and for Ange, I just watched Kolberg. Its good for a "Lesser Period" made movie.

                              I hope someday soon that the US can become depolarized politically (and stop doing this all the time) and people will actually converse without attacking each other. I am afraid the 24 hour news cycle is causing a lot of this as the "news" organizations now spend most of their time creating news and inciting people instead of reporting the news.
