You would ban something because it "looks terrible"?
by EdH / February 3, 2006 12:53 AM PST

That would mean about half the movies that comeout every year would be banned and about 80% of TV shows.

BTW, I saw 24 the other night. Kinda boring and dumb.Maybe it should be banned!

Have not seen the movie

the reviews were not that great so I don't know the plot... Does it gloss over the japanese occupation of Manchuria?

Japan does have a history of overlooking many of its actions during the 30s and 40s in favor of a revisionist history that puts them in a more favorable light. Still, it's ironic that China should complain that the story is not accurate since they have done their own manipulation of historical fact over the years.

I have heard re:complaints about the casting as noted, and that is has been toutedd as a love story.

I have no idea if or how Manchuria is addressed. But I recall well that invasion, Nanking, and the horrors. As you know, there is some film of that in "Victory At Sea".

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
