    Yes this is a better show than Letters from Iwo Jima if you want a war film from the Japanese point of view

    Juz watched 300.

    A compelling war movie, but the feelings of the director ring out and despite the concept of 'Glory in Death, for Loyalty, Honour' (which most ppl regard it as dead & buried), I personally feel those values which people live by in the past, stick to it and die on it are still pretty much relevant to our modern day context for those are the values that raised the valour to heighten the glory of the human civilisation, which, sadly to say, had gone into decline.

    Looking at the world in general, I occasionally can't help but feel that our civilisation is now in a state of decline as compared to the so-called 'blood-thirsty, war-like, primitive' behaviour of the ancestors of our old.

    I guess the motivation today is, "Glory to riches, how much are you paying me?"
    And if you practice Chivalry, you can be accused of promoting sexual inequality or worst, sexual haressment....

    Oh well...

    But yeah, 300 is a good movie.... Hahhahaa!

    watching this and knowing that it's based on a true event made me sick to the stomach. but it also goes to show how deadly clinical the Nazi regime was when dealing with the "Final Solution".
    no one seen this?

    yes, it is. but may be a bit slow-moving for those who have a different idea of what a war movie is about.
