The Great Raid
My girlfriend and I will watch The Great Raid this weekend. We might try to catch Crash as well if time permits. And if time will still allow, a DVD of The Merchant of Venice (with Robert de Niro) will definitely be in our itinerary
The reviews are really great for the film and the war movie fanatic in me is begging for me to watch it.
Try reading the IMDB user comments and find out for yourself the many good reviews of users who have seen this film before. We're watching this movie not about Cesar Montano, Bembol Roco, Rez Cortes alone --- nor the good reviews from foreigners. It's because this is about us Filipinos and Americans in a time when we are fighting a legitimate war together. Hollywood has devoted so much on the European Theatre of WWII and people forget that World War II is not about the Nazi's alone --- not Europe. We had our fair share of atrocities, and mangled bodies, and raped women, and massacred children.
War should only exist in the movies and that is why war movies deserve to be seen...

*** Update: Even the Great Roger Ebert has good words for this movie! Read it here. Go and google it and you will find more good reviews. Spread the word. Preview's here.
