What's The Last Movie That You've Seen?

March 27, 2007 @ 09:34:28

Also, I caught a not to subtle pro-George Bush pro-Iraq war agenda in this film that rubbed me the wrong way...Wasnt that subtle either. A noble man goes to the wise men (The U.N) and asks if he should go in the war the wise men reject it...but the noble man goes in it alone...under equpied...under manned...but morally upright...blah blah blah....it was eye roll enducing...

I dont really see how thats pro Iraq war, its a different set of circumstances, the Persians were going to invade their kingdom and take over/destroy it, as they had been doingwith the others. He didnt want to end up like the other kings who had been conquered=killed. George Bush Invaded Iraq, they werent invading the US

And, Im not saying Im right. I'm saying what I got from the movie. People interpret different shit in different ways and thats the feeling Im getting. And, things can be similar or have a hidden message within it without being totally the same. Theres situations that coincide with the Iraq aituation in the movie to me but not every single moment. Besides, some of the justification that George Bush uses is that whole "we have to get them before they get us" mentality. In the film the Persians hadnt invaded yet the Spartans going to war was more or less a premptive strike ala the Iraq war. And, Im not gonna argue semantics because for something to have an agenda doesnt mean that every fact has to be exactly the same, even if i didnt get the whole invasion part out of it, the situation where he goes and talks to the older men who persuade him not to go, and them going totally under manned and under equpied is very analogous with the current war imo. And, Im not even sayin that this was the intention of the writer or the director, its just the vibe I got from it.

Yeah, one thing I dont wanna dois get into a whole Iraw war disscussion though. Theres way to many personal feelings involved in it for me and some family members for me to disscuss it without being totally biased and emotional. Maybe thats why I caught that vibe from the film though.

Saw 16 Blocks on cable.

It was ok...It got better as the movie went along although it was rather predictable and fit into the same mold as other movies in this genre. But i didnt mind because i was entertained. But I have to say....I like Mos Def as an actor but at first the way he protrayed his character was off putting. I couldnt figure out if he was playing a semi retarded character or just someone with a speech problem. Either way it was distracting at first and Im not sure why he chose to play the character that way but I got used to it before the movie ended.

I saw Shooter too. Marky Mark is officially my favorite badass in movies. He was pretty hard in Four Brothers too.

I watched Carlito's Way and School Daze today. Carlito's Way started off super good but it failed to follow through. By the end of the movie I was pacing around my house waiting for it to end. All in all, Super good concept but it just didn't have that "wow" factor like other Al Pacino films. School Daze wasn't what I was expecting at all but it was alright. I like Laurence Fishburne and Spike Lee, so I was able to watch through the cheesy musical bits.

Just watched Good Will Hunting (one of my fav movies) followed by The Good Shepard, which was a little dull IMO, and for people who don't already know at least a bit about the background of tCIA and stuff, you might be lost.
