    Movie "The Wall". It's kind of weird. War movie in Iraq where most of the dialog is between this raghead sniper guy and an American solider. If you like a movie where the bad guy wins, this is the movie for you! Movie was done by Amazon Movies, and really it seems like a low budget film. Not really very much action. I'm torn between giving it 2 stars or 3, so I will give it 2.5 out of 5 stars.

    As long as we are talking movies...

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is, IMO, a must see!

    If you did not see the first one... you need to see it first... or the second will take a bit of mental catching up.

    And IMO it presents a scenario where it is socially acceptable to take a rather strange view on right and wrong...
    And we know Hollywood is all about attempting to influence thinking... they are successful with it also.

    IMO a war movie needs to be win the war... period!
    Notable about the director Mel Gibson, is both a Christian and a Conservative. Took a lot of balls to make a movie like that when Hollywood and the media is against you at every turn. I will forever be a Mel Gibson fan for that reason.

    IMO... Mel Gibson is one of those guys that has the gonads to not be a follower...

    It is a dangerous road... unless one has the gonads to walk it.

    Wait for the DVD:


    Hollywood once again reveals its distaste for America
    .
    The just released new Hollywood movie detailing the life of Neil Armstrong, First Man, has so far gotten rave reviews.

    Sadly, however, there is one detail about the Apollo 11 mission that the filmmakers decided they couldn’t include, even though it was in many ways the entire point of the mission. They made a conscious decision to exclude any mention of the planting of the American flag on the surface of the Moon.
    .
    Star Ryan Gosling, who plays Armstrong, defended director Damien Chazelle’s decision to omit the star-spangled moment when asked about it in Venice. “I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it, ” Gosling said per the Telegraph. “I also think Neil was extremely humble, as were many of these astronauts, and time and time again he deferred the focus from himself to the 400,000 people who made the mission possible.”

    The Canadian actor added that based on his own interviews with Armstrong’s family and friends, he doesn’t believe the pioneering astronaut considered himself an American hero. “I don’t think that Neil viewed himself as an American hero,” Gosling said. From my interviews with his family and people that knew him, it was quite the opposite. And we wanted the film to reflect Neil.”

    This is bunk. All the astronauts who flew to the Moon were very aware that they were warriors in the Cold War against the Soviet Union and communism, and did it very consciously so that the U.S. could win that space race, for the U.S. Planting the flag was thus for them a very important aspect of the mission, maybe in many ways the most important.

    That these Hollywood filmmakers purposely excluded that moment....

    I know this isn't appropriate but I just usually wait for a week or two for a clear copy of the movie on the social media unless it is a film that I look forward too. Is there anyone here who have already seen Venom? Is it worth a couple of bucks to watch on the big screen?

    The last movie that I watched is "Mortal Engine", the first 30 minutes and the last 15 minutes are the best. The rest of the film is a combination of drama and action. I will give it a 4/5 star.
