I went and saw the movie tonight; pretty powerful message, a must see for our generation (or atleast for those of you who can go see it without your parents). It's not an enjoyable movie because it's based on real events but it needs to be seen, so make sure you check it out.

i dunno the movie is kinda fucked up. It portrayed the extremests from each side as the same, sortof "right" but didnt give a really accurate background for people who don't know a lot about what happened.
really good movie. The only complaint I can point out is that its almost 3hrs long. If they coulda somehow cut out 45mins of it w/o losing anything valuable, it'd be a GREAT movie. But still really good and worth seeing, especially if u like long movies. I just dont have the attention-span to sit through a 3hr movie, no matter how good it is.
lol dude i hate to say it but there were weapons before we got there and there will be plenty of weapons after we leave... atleast this time there's fighting on both sides of the conflict, not just genocide... People have been fighting in that region for thousands of years and thinking that if the US leaves will stop the fighting is simply an extremely uneducated theory. Nevertheless, the movie does a very good job portraying the events from a tragic view and not some kind of action movie. Spielberg still seems to have it
i never said the US leaving would stop the fighting thats a riddiculous statement. however the US by giving arms to isral made the whole conflict allought worse in that the palistinians had to resort to suicide bombings in order to keep up with the might of the israli army that s now bombing them from air strikes, and giving them the technology to take a palistinian leader at the press of a button.
Fuck that, it all began with the allies actually forming a country (Israel) within a previously existing country (Palestine) in 1949 on the sole basis of some ridiculous god-given right to the land that the jews claimed, of which both religions share...but at the time, everyone pitied the jews situation since they'd literally been uprooted out of European society, hence everyone was on their side, Palestine had no say in the matter...since the allies couldn't be fucked resettling the jews in Europe, they just went and formed israel, and what a good move that was
uhhh it happened long before that my friend. There were some small wars a looooong time ago... Maybe you know something about them? The crusades? As long as people inhabit that region, people will fight. Simple as that.
It was deffinatly a movie I liked but not a enjoyable movie. For those of you who dont get what I'm saing I'll be a little clearer. It isnt a feel good movie, but the message it delivers is clear and I think its a message that people should know. For those of you who didnt watch it untill the end I strongly sugest that you do, its worth it
We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old becase we stop playing- Unknown
