Saw a preview commercial for The Kingdom over the weekend - looks like it’s going to be a good one.  And it’s about time Hollywood made something that didn’t portray the US as the bad guys!

Speaking of movies about war, did anyone catch part one of Ken Burn’s “The War” last night on PBS?  I typically don’t watch war documentaries, but I read Jules Crittenden’s review of it decided to watch it, and caught part of it last night to check out the old footage he talked about.  His review was spot-on: the footage was incredible, but the documentary (from what I’ve seen so far) doesn’t do WWII justice in terms of why we were fighting it and why it was important for us to win it, and I found it hard to follow the narrative.  Still, at least it wasn’t anti-American.  Normally, that is something that is hard to find on PBS.
