Last night Mystery Guest, myself and a friend went go to see Flags of our Fathers. After getting off to a rough start (the schedule was misprinted and it was showing an hour later than planned - but we got free tickets cause of the mistake!) I really enjoyed the film.
I feel like recently I've seen a lot of good war films that aren't just the shoot 'em up type. This one was really good because it showed the mental challenges facing a soldier returning home, the war propaganda done by the government as well as the camaraderie of the soldiers.
The film takes place in Japan - the battle of Iwo Jima and the famous raising of the flag photo that we've all seen before. I can't wait for the next film to come out, the Japanese side of the story, this spring - also by Clint Eastwood.
