On a strange side note, there is one war movie I will NOT watch, despite its good reviews and everyone telling me to watch it, and that’s ‘War Horse’. Nope. Yanno, I can watch people being tormented, exploded, decapitated, dismembered…but I cant watch it happen to an animal. And I don’t even know if that sort of thing happens in War Horse, but I know what the movie portrays, and I just cant see that. Not to horses. Yeah, bring me exploding people. ~sage nods~
Yeah, so, its been out for awhile now, but I’ve just gotten the chance over the holiday weekend to watch it.
Now, we all know I am a history buff, especially WWII.
I Frikkin’ LOVED this movie.
It was honest and blunt. It was in your face on the realities of these armor crews in WWII, and how the Germans really did have superior armor divisions and tanks.
And not only that, but in the stories of each member of the Fury family. They came from all different walks of life, loved and hated one another, but no matter what, their Fury was home.
I just loved it. 5 stars from me. But again, WWII buff…oh, and Brad Pitt. ~drools~ I love him in just about everything he is in. I like him best in hard nosed gruff roles. I prefer his cleaner cut look though.
So, watching this made me want to pull up some of my other favorite WWII films. But then I got lost in the Netflix Vortex of Doom, and have started watching Heroes from season one and onwards. ~facedesks~
I really should be working on my book. I really should be working on Camp Nano. I really should be working on contest entries (still pining away for membership into The Horror Writers Association)
