Vietnam War

7 years, 9 months ago at Nov 15 23:33

This movie revisited so many questions in my mind especially with America's current situation in the Middle East. Oliver Stone conveys the unfathomable hardships and struggles that plagued veterans of the Vietnam War and Tom Cruise plays an important and memorable role in translating the real life of Ron Kovic.

" Watched April 7th - Library DVD - 1st Viewing "Sometimes, Stevie, I think people, they know you're back from Vietnam and their face changes - the eyes, the voice, the way they look at you, you know?" - Ron Kovic After watching Magnolia I decided to watch another Tom Cruise movie I hadn't seen yet - Born on the Fourth of July - which was sort of a bookend to Platoon, Oliver Stone's other Vietnam war opus, rather than the war itself, the film deals more with what it was like for the veterans o"

Saves me about $40,000 a year. That's serious money, Ron. I plug the hole with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, spices. I cover it with a pickle. They'll never miss a thing." Not Stone's best, but it was still good. The war scenes were intense and it was cool that the real Ron Kovic wrote the script. Tom Cruise's performanc"
