Thanks for posting. I’ll be there. One of the greatest triumphs of the American free society. God bless all the veterans who defeated the Evil Nazis. All millennials should have to watch this flick. They have no idea of sacrifice

Certainly a must watch movie for everyone. It still is the most realistic war movie ever created. I am not sure how this is the 25th anniversary, though. It came out in 1998 if I am not mistaken. It was probably filmed in 1997. 21st anniversary for release???

Either way.....everyone should see this movie at some point. It does a great job of showing the sacrifice that was made to end the evil empire of the Nazis. Watching this movie and the HBO series Band of Brothers should be on everyone’s list of things to watch.

My dad fought in WWII and Korea and often spoke of the absolute horror of combat. The scene where the amphibious landing takes place was a graphic as he described. I firmly agree that everyone should have to study the effects of war and their opinions would certainly be changed about many issues today. I am most fortunate for having the honor to have had been reared by a Veteran. Life is much different when you are the offspring of a combat veteran. Some talk about it, some do not. All of them had their way of handling it. That is why their efforts must never be forgotten and always remembered. It’s a shame no President has succeeded in ending the Korean Armistice. Many Vets are still with us and it’s still the forgotten war.

Went with m dad as an 18 year old. Taking my 16 year old son and dad on Wednesday. The first 20 minutes in a real theater is the only time that i have ever been lost in a movie in my life. Gripping would be an apt description.

Or watch it on TV most anytime.

I'm so proud that America singlehandedly defeated the Germans and Japs so that Europe could later be handed over by Globalists to radical Feminism and Islamization.

Baby boomers should be reminded each day about the blowback from their self-centered decisions. Until you atone for your numerous socio-economic failures, you shouldn't lecture another generation.

Why should anyone consume the same stupid brainwashing that led you down the primrose path?

8:25 you sir or madam whatever the case may be are what most might consider a little bitch that should be strung up by your buster browns and have your ass beat with a belt. Your not a Patriot nor do your have any understanding of the concept. Your welcome !

If/when the US stumbles to the end of its reign as world leader and we likely find ourselves desperately struggling, the choices to remain a sovereign nation might come down to those that faced Europe post WW II and likelihood is that a somewhat socialist government will be the populist choice. The 'winner take all' variety of capitalism currently in vogue cannot survive its unplanned consequences. Corporate oligarchy will find its most dedicated current supporters to be just one pay check ahead of 'those people'......... You know, the ones who need to be starved into submission.

And "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

8:25 is a reminder that millenials are the first generation that is breaking the conditioning. Every time I see an article proclaiming "Millenials are ditching cable and not buying movies..." a part of me rejoices that there is some hope.

Undortunately Their parents and grandparents arent leaving them with much of a country. More like a heavily indebted farm that quit producing 3 decades ago.

Kingfish said...

Wow. You peeps will argue with a light pole. How about just appreciating it's a great movie?

Anonymous said...

Thanks Kingfish. Insulting potential viewers is not the way to get their butts in a theater seat.

BTW, IMHO "The Thin Red Line" (1998) is a just-as-powerful movie about the Pacific Theater.

Wow. After all these years I still walked out of the theater shaken and teary-eyed.

Going tonight. I posted above about going with my dad and son. However, the years (25) didn't make sense to me. It is indeed 21 years, so I was 22 and am now taking my 16 year old son with my father, whose father served of course. Granddad, who was a major and has passed, thankfully didn't see the horrors of war from the front lines (I may not be here), but he made damn sure that I knew the sacrifices made by so many of his generation. That is why I am so glad to be taking my son. I showed him the first 20 minutes when he was about 8 to seer the horrors of war into his mind. We watched the entire thing not long after, but of course, the true depth of the conflict and sacrifices and human suffering was lost on him. I am glad he will now have the opportunity to see the full thing on the big screen and truly appreciate it. Thanks for letting us know Kingfish.

And I am no fan of hollywood or the oscars but it should be a massive clue to us as to what they think of our country in that some bullshit movie (don't remember) beat it out for best picture. They had to overcome their love of Hanks and Spielberg to do so. That tells you how much they hate this country and those who served and serve.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
