Flags of our Fathers

The other night we borrowed Flags of our Fathers from the library. We watched it after the kids went to bed, with the closed captioning on. We have a very old and dinky T.V., and though we were given a surround sound system we can hardly use it to its potential because we always watch movies after the kids are in bed. Anyhow. . .

This is the kind of story that we both enjoy. The war scenes are gruesome, but I guess that is to be expected. I really didn't know a whole lot about the movie before we borrowed it except that it was about WWII. The film is based on a book written by the son of one of the soldiers that were photographed raising the flag at Iwo Jima. I had not heard the story surrounding that photo before. I think I will have to add the book to my reading list.

We use closed captioning all the time when we watch movies!
