    Souldn't this be moved to PP?
    So what you're saying is that you sat through the "Longest Day" and you didn't know how it ended?

    No. Just saying war movies are predictable.

    Went to catch Lone Survivor at 4:50 showing. Only a very few seats left all on the front row.
    Go figure. Will let the crowds slack off some.

    JDogger,
    You, like myself, may not know the whole story. There just may be a little "suspense". There was for me. Now, I knew the basic story, but did not read the book.
