War Movie Watchalong – Choose the Movie

It’s been a while since the last watchalong, 8 months to be precise, and I thought it was about time to do it again. Like the last time I will give you the opportunity to choose from a list of movies.

The “rules” are simple. If you’d like to join and have a blog, please post on the same day, if you don’t have a blog, just watch the movie and join the discussion.

The poll will decide which one we will watch.

Here are the choices:

The Bomber – Ballada O Bombere (2011 Russia)

Johnny Got His Gun (1971 US)

The Hurt Locker (2008 US)

I will announce the poll results on Sunday 9 September 2012.

The discussion will take place on Sunday 23 September 2012

    There you go: I’ll be the one person to vote for Johnny Got His Gun. The screenplay was co-written by Luis Buñuel. I guess I’ll watch it anyway.

    I can’t get Bomber, although I would have voted for it. I think Johnny is too depressing and will not get a lot of participation, plus it is not clearly a war movie. The Hurt Locker has several things to discuss.

    • I will watch all three of them because I’ve got the anyway. I’m afraid that Johnny Got His Gun will be depressing but it also looks like a movie which will give a lot to discuss, same fot THe Hurt Locker. Bomber could be a Russian Pearl Harbor or a good movie, I’m not sure but I’m surprised you cannot find it.

      If you have an all-region player, it’s available from Amazon US. Well worth the purchase.
