Movie wise

Lately I caugth two good movies; both fairly recent (2005) and with good reviews.

An excellent Award winning movie. It got three Academy Awards(Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Art Direction) but probably the attention of the world is a better reward. Fine directing,excellent acting and the mistique atmosphere of early 20th century Japan make the 2 and 1/2 hours fly by in the most pleasing way possible.

The classic, by now, first campaign in Iraq (war??) in 1991 seen through the eyes of a classical marine recruit. Hillarious at the begining(Jamie Foxx has some cute lines in this way) it evolves more into the usual atmosphere of the gendre without reaching the same level of accuracy regarding the atrocities of war.
