Charlie Wilson's War

I saw this recently and thought it was excellent. Tom Hanks and Phillip Hoffman were great and delivered performances that are going to get nods come awards time.

There was an interview with Martin Frost who was very close with Charlie Wilson when all of this happened and he said it was basically a dead on portrayal of Charlie and what really happened.

Lots of good laughs as well.

Go see it!

This was a great movie inspite of Julia Roberts. I can't stand her.

I saw this today and thought it was a great movie. This was not an award winning performance for julia roberts; in fact, I was quite annoyed when her character would appear in this flick.

Saw this movie tonight. Gust (Phillip Seymour Hoffman) was awesome. So damn funny in a dark, cynical way. Definitely my favorite part of the movie.


Overall, it was a pretty good movie. I would definitely recommend it, though I think it could have been longer.
