I just picked up a copy of Flags of our Fathers, which I had really meant to go watch in theaters but time does not permit me to have such luxuries too often (Eat, Sleep, Work, with a dash of reading seems to be a daily routine nowadays.) I think it's always worth it to squeeze in a little movie here and there though, this one was well worth it. Since I'm unsure of what else to say, I'll just quote the back of the DVD case.
"On the frontline, there's no time for fear. For 70,000 marines who fought with bombs blasting and guns blazing, the bloody battle for Iwo Jima was more than the turning point of World War II: it was the defining moment in their live...Clint Eastwood taps into the single greatest emotional truth of warfare: soldiers may fight for their country, but they die for their friends."
I felt the movie really got that point across, now I'll have to wait for Letters from Iwo Jima to release on DVD.
