Just watched Hacksaw Ridge and thought it was the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. I know I'm late in seeing it, but I always wait until movies come out on DVD to watch at home. Anyone else enjoy this movie? I you decide to see it, be sure to watch all the way through the credits so you can see photos of the real person portrayed in the movie.

Carol, This sounds familiar but I'm not sure if I've seen it or not. Can you tell me what
the movie is about, basically? It's getting harder and harder to find a movie I can watch
these days. Flipping through hundreds of TV channels, it's rare to find one I sit through
til the end. Too much violence, sex, and just plain ugly plots. I've always wondered why
an author would write a fictional movie, able to imagine any ending they please, and
yet so many have endings that make me cry!

Wow, I sure digressed on that topic! Anyway, I'd love to know if this is a good movie.
True stories sometimes have real life bad stuff in them, and they don't always end well....
but that's different. At least it is to me : )

Sure, this is based on the true story of a conscientious objector in WWII. He served on the battlefield as a medic but wouldn't fight due to his religious beliefs. He becomes the first person to ever win the Medal of Honor without firing a shot. I don't remember much cussing (no f words) but the battle scenes can be pretty graphic. All in all pretty clean and inspirational. I loved it and I'm not a war movie fan.

I agree with you on the difficulty in finding a good movie. When I think I might like a movie, I go to the IMDb website, type in the movie name, find the spot on the page where it says "More", click on it and click on "Parents Guide". That will give a rundown of what might be objectionable content so I can tell right away if I'm going to watch it or not. I refuse to fill my mind with the sex, cursing, and ugliness found in so many current movies. Violence doesn't bother me as much depending on the context, I don't watch slasher type movies anyway so usually it's not an issue with me.
