    I saw it last night and it seemed a little tedious. Everybody in it seemed kind of lifeless and there was no climactic scene like in A Few Good Men, no "You can't handle the truth!"
    I'm sure Fenian might like it, but Yawn, Old Tony and Hondo probably won't.
    It didn't seem like the heavy handed anti war movie some people said it was.

    I'm sure it's good... I just don't know if I can bring myself to see a movie that's going to be that depressing...

    Actually, I should probably go just so I won't have to say that the last Susan Sarandon movie I've seen is Mr. Woodcock... ;D

    It's not particularly depressing. Tommy Lee Jones is superb.

    I try to see as many 4 star movies as I can and that's what this one received (in some places).

    I enjoyed it a lot, but I'm not sure I'd give it four stars, maybe 3 1/2.

    I'll definitely see it...
  5. Tommy Lee got huge reviews in The New Yorker for this,
