One of my favorite things to discuss with roomates in college was war movies. I think the best conversations always came from discussing the different perspectives on Vietnam from Deer Hunter, Platoon, and Apocalypse Now. I always appreciated Apocalypse Now first, Deer Hunter second, and Platoon the least, but I guess that's to be expected from a college boy like me. Someone who had actually been over there may have appreciated the more personal approach taken by the other two movies.
Just recently saw Thor. Meh. It kept me interested enough, but I wouldn't consider it worth a second viewing.
Has anyone seen Drive? I think I am on the fence whether this movie is worth going to the theater or just waiting to rent.
