I rented 'Green Zone' last night. It was much better than I anticipated. I am not a tinfoil hat guy, but I suspect we were never quite told the entire truth about why we went into Iraq. This movie offers one plausible explanation. It's very entertaining.
Plus, there were quite a few action scenes and the gunfire actually sounded like gunfire, not some phony little blanks. I suppose non-gunners are satisfied with the little pops that many directors use for guns, but I figure everyone here is like me, and we appreciate firearm realism. The action scenes are well done. Another credible performance from Matt Damon.

Edge of Darkness
I wouldn't pay one thin dime to see any movie W/ Matt Damon in it He's made some ugly anti and America hater comments I'm not supporting him
I watched it on the plane ride over here...I was pleased too. I figured it would be a generic Iraq War movie...like The Kingdom. It was pretty good though, IMO.
The NRA-ILA list is enough for me.

I haven't seen the movie, but who cares what his politics are? I'm sure I've seen tons of movies that were made by people who had different ideas than me about most anything. The only way to avoid that is to stop going to the movies. Instead, I just stop listening to actors unless they are acting. Tons easier.
Going to give that movie a look soon, it sounds like a good one.

There are only a few that I flat refuse to watch, he's one of them. Another is Mia Michaels (Judge on so you think you can dance) She disgraced a USMC dress uniform on the show one night and I stopped watching I never was a big fan but now I won't even sit in the room while DW watches it
I will say...the scenery was very familiar, especially VBC and Al Faw palace....

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
I actually try to stay as far away from all the paparazzi, gossip celebrity "news". It drives me nuts. Ok you are in a movie that doesn't mean I care that you went shopping last thursday. But like I said its the hypocritical stuff that is annoying.
