    Zero Dark Thirty



    Watched this yesterday. Wasn't sure what to think about it but I was expecting much. The film is amazing. The writing and directing for me was great. You guys should see it when it comes out.

    Not at all. That's what I loved the most about the movie. It stayed true to the story and didn't try to push some Hollywood type **** on me.

    Many, many gov't people, including CIA'ers (and senators I believe) who collaborated on the movie are saying some (much?) of the movie is FOS. Don't get me wrong, I'm going to see it. And sadly, I probably find KB more trustworthy than I do some CIA morons given our government's integrity barometer in most of our eyes. I sort of wonder where the truth lies though. And no matter, based on the trailers, I am dying to see it and will.

    If you saw The Hurt Locker, the quality of this film should not be surprising.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this movie, and might be catching a free advance screening tomorrow. It depends on if I want to drive downtown in the snow storm.

    I'm also excited that one of my favorite bands (Ours) recorded a new version of the following song for the movie. It's supposed to play at some point during the movie.

    I can't wait to see it. For those of you who have, how did it compare to The Hurt Locker?

    There was a good bit in the news recently how the movie implied we got the critical intel on bin Laden via torture (so I'm told, I haven't seen it yet but plan to). Some high placed sources have said this is not true but that the critical intel was obtained through other means. As someone who is opposed to torture on both practical and moral grounds (and yes, water boarding IS torture), if this is true, I am very disappointed that Bigelow (Director) chose to depict it this way. Still, Hurt Locker was a great movie (also directed by Bigelow), so I have high hopes for this one, inaccuracies aside.

    As a general rule also, you can be very certain that any Hollywood depiction of a historical event takes artistic liberties with history. Recent case in point, Argo, which although a great movie, played fast and loose with some actual historical details of the rescue (one example, there was no drama in the airport as depicted in the movie, they simply boarded the plane and left).
