Movies - The Great Raid
The Great Raid is out in the U.S. although it is not scheduled for release in Australia yet. One of my good friends is a stunt extra in this film (The film was shot in queensland, Australia) and I am looking forward to trying to spot him in the many scenes as a prominent member of the Army Rangers.
The movie seems to be getting good reviews and is a good lesson of courage and grit from world war 2. Longer comment on the film can be found here. All in all, it seems like a good film to watch. A good reminder of some of the evil practices that enemies of the free world continue to practice. Thankfully though, the Japanese have moved past these practices and are a much better country/people for it.
Update: Powerline has much more.
