    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    I will see it anyway. I just don't miss Matt Damon movies. I hope it isn't that bad.


    It's all snark from here on out

    It wasn't that bad, seemed to have a very strong political agenda

    Thanks for saving me a couple of bucks at least. I'll probably catch it at the Red Box.

    Seemed very Bourne-ish, but not quite as cool.

    The picture is so left-leaning that Michael Moore tweeted, "It is the most HONEST film about the Iraq war made by Hollywood."

    That really isn't saying much, is it? Like saying Snickers are the healthiest candy bar.

    Re: Green Zone

    Paying $8 for a movie is so overrated. Sure I may be two years behind on pop culture, but I'm saving a butt load of money.

    Ouch. That's not a ringing endorsement for me.

    Michael Moore knows a lot about honesty...

    Re: Green Zone

    It did have a left-leaning political agenda. I was aware of that going in (I am a conservative myself). But hey, I want to be entertained and if I boycotted movies because of the politics of most of hollywood I would probably never go. I listen to REM because I like their music...not their politics.

    Anyway, in my opinion, regardless of politics, this movie was pretty lame. Some decent action scenes and cinematography (is that the word) but the plot, the storyline, etc. was poor and certainly did not keep you on the edge of your seat like a Bourne movie does...in fact, I dozed off at one point. It was a long couple of hours.

    I did laugh when they had a scene at one of Saddam's palaces and they made it out like the Americans (military, CIA, press) were on vacation sitting around this big pool, floating on floaties in the pool, etc...looked like a resort...very funny. I also laughed that they had Bush Cheney campaign posters up in this headquarter building...another very comical thing.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    yeah....Greengrass missed the hoop on this one.


    I am really looking forward to Damon's next film with Jeff Bridges.

    re-make of True Grit by the Cohen brothers.
