      The funniest thing about Trump are those who feel he is of a piece, separate from American history, and somehow a break from it.  That this government is significantly qualitatively worse than those that came before, rather than an extension of it. (A good example is immigration policy, in which Trump is somewhat worse than […]

Monday Night at the Movies

Hi guys, I’ve been busy for the past couple of days.  I did some yard work this weekend including hacking down some volunteer trees that spring up around my dining room windows every year and that the landscapers conveeeeniently forget to trim back.  There was a creeping juniper plant in my front plant bed that needed to be untangled and ripped out.  I’m about half done with that.  Then I power washed the deck and it’s ready to be sanded.  Then I just had a very nice day doing geeky stuff.  Very satisfying.

So now I’m sitting down with a big bowl of chili cheese  popcorn (made it myself) and a beer and watching the Amees and the Gerries go at it during D-day in the second installment of Band of Brothers.  Scary as all get out but a fantastic series.  Jump! already, you twits.

I love war and strategy movies.  I am my father’s daughter.

What are you doing tonight?

  1. Midway is the best for tactics, I think. Apocalypse Now (especially the bridge scene) really caught the tenor of ‘Nam. Hell Is For Heroes good for Korea. Liked Enemy At The Gates for grit and personal duels. No movie has really done the Civil War justice. Every one you have listed also excelled– how ’bout The Dirty Dozen?

  2. Letters from Iwo Jima.

  3. Two great Australian films, “Gallipoli” (1981) which made director Peter Weir famous and “Breaker Morant” (1980).
