'Defiance' with Daniel Craig



I was at the video store the other night, trying to find some movies to rent for a sleepover that my daughters were having. I looked through all of the new releases, and just thought that it was SO INTERESTING that the only movie that was completely sold out was 'Defiance' with Daniel Craig. They had dozens and dozens of copies in inventory with a sizable display - all rented out for the week. I hadn't even heard of it - but I have to tell you it looks like a good one.

It's about 3 brothers in Eastern Europe during WWII - and it's based on a true story. The brothers escape the Nazis by disappearing into the woods, where they eventually assembled quite a group of like minded individuals willing to resist the Nazi terror. They end up protecting a sizable group of Polish Jews who are fleeing the slaughter.

Is it just me, or do you also think the fact that this movie is completely sold out could be a measure of the mindset of the American people?

When I rent it and watch it - I'll let you know if I like it.

There is information and reviews at Fandango Movie Review. (I haven't even read the review at this site - I hardly EVER read movie reviews.)

Tweetey - I remember seeing Holocaust when I was in high school. It was haunting, but I'm glad that I saw it. I haven't seen Schindler's List yet. I really should see that.

I guess what sticks in my head to this day is that how graphic everything was in Schindlers List. I think that is where I had a hard time with it.. I dont mind a good movie but I hate them being so graphic esp when its based on true events. I know those things really happened and I dislike the man that made those events happen. But still I just dont know.. Creepy..

Interestingly I learned from reading Double Tapper's blog, that two grandsons of "Zus" Bielski recently moved from the New York area to Israel for a period of time, and joined the IDF. Yay!

Toady - the 'racist' accusation doesn't work here. So sorry that your talking points are so lame, but that's what happens when you're a mindless leftist with nothing to offer.

Tweetey, perhaps you were too young to see it when you did. I wrestle with what is appropriate for the girls to see. I think it's important that they learn the ugliest of history as well - but you hate to see them get upset. It is upsetting - those things that happened and many other things as well. It's important to see how evil some of those events were.

DC - I had heard that Zus moved to America after it was all over with. I'm so glad that he did, and glad that he was able to raise his kids in safety and freedom here in the greatest country on the face of the earth.

It still is - but things can change and we cannot allow the socialists to ruin this country.
