    Lone Survivor

    Advertisements
    Has anyone seen it yet? DH and I are going tonight. The book was really great. Everyone I've talked to says the book is better but that the movie is still really good -- that it's not a disappointment or anything, just omits lots of details (which I guess is necessary to get the story down to 2 hours). We're really looking forward to it.

    I want to see it! I know someone in it too.

    Ok, *I* don't actually know anyone in it but DH worked with someone in it. They filmed parts in ABQ when we were there for training.
    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥

    We saw it last night. It was one of those movies that at the end, everybody just sat there and then the entire theatre started clapping. It was pretty awesome.

    It was really moving and DH said a lot of it was pretty accurate.
    Put on your big girl panties and deal with it like a boss.

    We saw it and I freaking bawled. They showed real life pictures of it at the end one of a coffin and I lost it completely. I can not handle military deaths, so sad.

    My opinion of the movie (saw it a week and a half ago shhhhhhh) is what you posted OP. It was a great movie, but the bok was better.

    DH and I saw it today. I cried when the photos of the real people were shown. Good movie overall; haven't read the book though, so can't comment to that.
