    More downrange ops focusing on Kyle's 4 tours in the film than I was expecting. But this movie is about one subject and one subject only--Chris Kyle the husband, father, teammate and American. It's not political or an indictment on OIF or why we're there. It covers war and the pressures, strain and multiple deployments exceptionally well and the affects on one SEAL. An abrupt and shocking ending that most already know is coming is still powerful and emotional. 'American Sniper' will squarely hit civilians in the heart and mind about sacrifices made by so few, for so many, and for so long. Is the movie perfect? No. But does it get the message of casualties and sacrifices from the military and our families at war now for over a decade through the big-screen? Without a doubt. I was pleasantly surprised by this film's impact. http://reelbrief.com/?p=1681

    Critics and Hollywood insiders have been critical with harsh words towards "Unbroken" and "American Sniper"--calling these military film's full of clichés. One misguided reviewer even wrote American Sniper's "Iraq moments feel false as anyone making a film involving Navy SEALS better pay close attention to Kathryn Bigelow's 'Zero Dark Thirty' as she set a high bar for anyone hoping to capture the intensity of tactical warfare with a sense of authenticity." WTF? "American Sniper" will show the most authentic portrayal of NSW forces on film that we've ever seen. Despite critics and Hollywood attempting to keep moviegoers from these two fine films, the paying public will make both blockbuster hits. I enjoyed "Unbroken" and thought Jolie had a very difficult job competing with a hugely popular novel that spent 3 1/2 years on the NYT's bestseller hardcover list. But the movie was true to Zamperini and his amazing life--and deserving of the time devoted in the film to his adrift and POW periods. 'Unbroken' movie review; http://reelbrief.com/?p=1557

    The Chris Rock movie blends nightclub comedy, mind numbing sexual exploits and classic romance plot twists. http://reelbrief.com/?p=1426

    From "The Theory of Everything"... "Eddie Redmayne (Les Miserables) portrays the brainiac Hawking and gives the strongest lead acting performance I've seen in years. Diagnosed with a form of ALS in the early 1960s at the age of 21, Hawking struggled with his debilitating disease as he pursued his Ph.D. and future wife, Jane, at the University of Cambridge. Redmayne convincingly showcases Hawking's physical limitations as the film ventures into theories on space-time continuums and relativity. Redmayne's physical transformation and slowed speech easily dwarfs Dustin Hoffman's autistic, Academy Award-winning gem in 1988's Rain Man." http://reelbrief.com/?p=1284

    Highly recommend 'Birdman'... "Together, Keaton and Norton give movie audiences a volatile mix of personalities so convincingly testy that viewers will be left cringing at times and shaking their heads..." http://reelbrief.com/?p=1222

    "Interstellar" moves at a speed and distance that doesn't afford us, the moviegoers, the time to get complete answers along this fascinating journey. With such vast space to cover in the film, Nolan must play loose with the math and science equations, staying focussed instead on the many threats facing the talented cast. After all, the stakes are high; Earth is becoming uninhabitable and another planet must be found…right now. Like a rock skipped across the smooth waters of a lake, Nolan couldn't slow down to fully explain the mathematics of gravity, Einstein's theory of relativity, or how space travel was possible from a Midwestern farm to deep inside a wormhole. That deceleration would've halted the 3-time Oscar nominated director's story and sank this movie..." http://reelbrief.com/?p=1201

    More on 'Lone Survivor'; "Exceptional cinematography and editing give moviegoers a feeling of isolation, despair, and perhaps even the sense of dirt in their shoes. With every jarring injury and wound, viewers will find themselves in theaters ducking bullets and squeezing armrests." http://m.explorernews.com/livenup/article_e8595c0e-7da5-11e3-8400-001a4bcf887a.html?mode=jqm
  14. There are more pictures out there, and recent ones. He's a tall Dude. I think he passes the Mark I Eyeball Test and presents to the public an image of a middle-aged, acceptable appearance (I'd even say better than average for an American)--illustrating how poor of an evaluation the waist measurement is for people of taller heights. Waist measurement advocates say they need this to determine which service members are of risk to heart disease and other problems due to their >39" abdomens--but if "risk" to future health is cause for a PT failure the same could be said of smokers. Our PT assessment has become more important than leadership attributes, job knowledge and communication skills--which is crazy.
