Brother against women and old people...

Watched "Cold Mountain" by Anthony Minghella on Tuesday. Much better than I thought it would be. I'm not a big fan of war movies [despite the fact that I've seen three of them in as many days recently] but this truly deals with the horrors of war and violence and troubled times, as well as some small triumphs because of hardship. And not in a cheesy way either. If you can stomach the gore, I would suggest this movie.

Eeks, this was another movie that I thought was horrible. While some of the characters were will played, the plot line was awful, most especially the ending. I normally don't think this, but this was the one of the few that after watching, I was like "what a waste of time." (sorry to be so contrary ;) )

Never, never apologize for having a different opinion... As long as you have reasons for what you think, you have the right to differ with people. If no one had different ideas, there would be no reason to discuss and find better ideas.

See, I never really cared for the characters or the plot in this movie. I did however like the message it conveyed. War sucks. But, in particular, war is not simple and it has many more consequences than anyone can foresee. Some good, but most bad. That's what the movie said to me.
