    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    There are a number of good movies either currently playing or soon to be released. I saw "State of Play" today and it was very good. It stars Russell Crowe and Ben Affleck. Disney has a nature movie callled "Earth" starting next Wednesday--think Planet Earth but only better. Obsessed also starts next Friday and looks really good. Finally, the Soloist, starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey, Jr., starts next Friday and also is on my "must see" list. I enjoy going to the movies, especially when the weather limits outdoor activities.

    Saw "The Day the Earth Stood Still" .......gosh, Keanu Reeves had to shower & shave for this part. Not worth the rental fee.

    Watched "Special Effects" with Michelle Pfeiffer & Ashton Kutcher. There's more of an age spread than between Demi & Ashton. Just an OK movie. Ashton has the 6-pack working for him.

    Watched "Seven Pounds" with Will Smoth.....lousy !!

    I personally knew two servicemen who were escorted home in such a manner. The first was my wife's cousin, a CPO in the Navy. He died on Christmas Eve. Every Christmas Eve we had a big family get together. He always called to wish his mother to wish her a Merry Christmas. That night, no call came.

    The other was a brother of a good friend of mine. He was a Lance Corporal in the Marines. He was killed in the Beirut bombing. A few weeks after his funeral I was working preload and loading a set of cars. Three boxes containing his personal effects came down the belt. I treated those boxes like they were sacred as I loaded them. Then I wiped the tears from my eyes, as I am doing right now.

    The tears are heavy in my heart right now...I think about Beirut. I think how that moment in history is forgot / lost. I think about the day when we lost many fine Marines...and it hits me harder now.

    I engaged in conversation with a coworker that grew up in Louisiana. I was hoping that he knew a few Tuskegee Airmen that he could direct to Honor Flight to visit the WWII memorial in Washington, D.C.

    He stopped me dead when he told me he was Veteran. He said these words, "I was in Beirut."

    I choked - I knew exactly what he said in that short sentence. He was one of the few that made it out...but that didn't stop his mother from having an official visit.

    Bless you for posting your story...

    I would love if Square Enix produced a movie of the quality they produce with the stories and cutscenes they provide for their games.

    In their latest entry of the main Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy 14, it's an online game, and it's slated to be released for reasons but when they recently shut down the current version of the game to put forth all resources for development they put out a cutscene to end it with.

    Some explanation after the video. Given the story and the fantastic cinematography I would really love a movie like this.
