A Deadly Double Fleeture

Flags of Our Fathers & Letters From Iwo Jima
From The Filmmaker That Gave Us Space Cowboys
Flags Trailer|Jima Trailer

Clint Eastwood has earned the right to do whatever he wants to do, unlike Sylvester Stallone who's only allowed to do what he's good it. If Eastwood was dying to bring the story of The California Raisins to the big screen, no one would even second, third, fourth or FIRST guess him (is there such a thing as 'first guess'?). Hell, I bet the upcoming Dirty Harry video game [trailer] that he lends his legendary pipes to could end up being the breastest game of balls thyme! Then again, The California Raisins' 8-bit Nintendo game woulda been breastest Mt Everest AND Suribachi, had it EVER BEEN RELEASED [please click that link]!

Luckily for us all, Clint's more interested in human drama than dried fruit drama. I'm not gonna go on and on about either of these movies cause you really should see both, if you haven't already, and if dat be the case then see them in the order that they were released (USA FIRST BIZATCH!). It's impossible not to compare the films as they are two sides of one enorm-o story, er, um, war, so... I'm going to compare them. Flags isn't as deeply emotional as Jima, but then again it's not nearly as boring as it is either. I'm not saying that Iwo is woeful for the eyes, but Flags' sucksseeds as a piece of infotainment mo cause it pays equal attention to the home AND away, while Letters clocks waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many hours on that island. Dats all I gotta say... or not...

Before I go, I juss wanna give a giant middle finger to the Academy for two things:

1) how could anyone with eyes ever EVER EVER say that Little Miss Snoozeshine is more deserving of a Best Pic nom than Flags? With that kinda thinkin Napoleon Dynamite shoulda got a nod instead of Million Dollar Baby 2 years ago

2) Adam Beach from Flags got so hosed in the Best Supporting category. I can't really disagree with their picks, and no offense to Alan Arkin, but the same rule applies as with #1

Unsatisfied with this?: Netflix the John Wayne klassic Sands of Iwo Jima [trailer], which hactually featured the surviving flag raisers AND the flag itself!

Apt MPupil3: Pat Benatar's 'Love Is A Battlefield' [d]

Papa's Got A Brand New Flag: take a peep at photographer Joe Rosenthal, who peaced the fork out last August, speak about that iconic image, which also eggsists in video form

John Grisham's Jizzum (aka Verdict): sure, Iwo seems like it's 4374217142 hours long, but in the long run, both are ultimately Breast In Show

until next thyme the balcony is clothed... and by next time, I mean next week we're frynally gonna unveil the breast of the breast in movies '006!!
