    I saw a great movie!

    I just got back from the theater.

    Went out with my father to celebrate my birthday. I hang out with my old man anytime I can.

    Anyway...

    We saw "Flags of our Fathers" and it was outstanding. At one point my mouth dried out because my jaw was hanging open.

    I even shed a few tears... which does not come often. There was some father and son moments in the film and I am always a sucker for that kind of stuff. Just pulls at my "strings" you know.

    I will not get into the movie details, but if you are a fan of war films... this is the best one I have ever seen.

    GO SEE IT NOW!

    I was fortunate enough that I got a special preview pass to it a few weeks ago. Glad I got to see it. It didn't seem to mean much to my 16 year old but to me and other adults - especially other vets - I highly recommend seeing it.

    I just wish my dad was still here, so we could have gone together. FEb 19, 1945 was my 3rd birthday, so it also has meaning to me. I'll go see it yet, as the asian theater of WWII was most facinating to me.

    Excellent film!
    Not doing well at the box office, which is disappointing.
    I don't take much stock in it, but I hope it sweeps up at the Oscars.
    One of the best films of the year!!
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
