Soldiers, Scissors, Sleep and Superman on DVD

There are some great films out in DVD this week!

Flags of Our Fathers is the story of the soldiers that were on Iwo Jima in WW II. Three of them are chosen to go on a PR junket to promote war bonds. An interesting perspective on the war.

In Running with Scissors, we see the story of a young man who is coping with no family support in those all important adolescent years.

The Science of Sleep is a film that depicts dreams in relation to the real world. The lines become blurred, this is a very creative film.

And finally, in Hollywoodland we see the rise and fall of George Reeves, one of my favorite actors to play Superman.

I need to see Science of Sleep and Hollywoodland.

As for your previous post, I'll now have to add A Scanner Darkly to the list as well because I was on the fence about that one. Thanks.

Read the book "Running with Scissors" on a flight to Phoenix one day. People on the plane kept looking at me funny because I was laughing out loud. Can't wait to rent the DVD, although I'm sure I'll think the book was better.

For me, the book is usually better than the film. I've had a couple of people tell me how funny the book is. I'd say the film is more poignant than laugh-out-loud funny, enjoy!
