Your mind is way too far out in left field. What did it show about war that was so nice?
It showed the panic, dirt and grime, and death. If that glorifies war you are warped.

That remark was too stupid to describe.... and there you go insisting you can read my mind then make it obvious you haven't a clue.
However let me offer you a clue about how I think your mind works based on what you said in your remark. Snippy I think I think you just wanted to bitch me out so you did it for something you thought I said more because you want to bitch me out for something because I don't want to slide down the path to your version of stupid.
I said it glorifies war heroics. You blathered on about panic, dirt, grime and death and then went on to intimate that I said it glorifies war. No where did I say that war is glorious or that the movie said that war is glorious. Idiot.
Now that that is out of the way I will say this, there are plenty of things glorified in the minds of some human beings that are in fact scenes of panic, dirt, grime and death. The crucifixion of Jesus the Christ has been glorified and it has all the things you mentioned. and the underlying theme that Jesus did it all for us is what glorifies it. To put a cherry on it (according to biblical lore) it was his own people the Jews who had it done to him.
The movie is chock full of the "he did it for us" meme... It starts out with Dad telling him that in his facts of life speech over supper. The main character also says it several times. and in the end he is wacked by one of his own. It is the theme of the movie.
I think the difference between you and me is that I do not believe it is possible for someone to give their life for another. We are all going to die. There is no sacrifice with death. Death is the inevitable conclusion to all we do. Painting it up as something special under certain circumstances is a con job used to get some people to do stupid things to make life miserable for others.
One of the more subtle tracts in the movie was that he was up against another with similar fighting skills who was a family man just like himself... and he killed him... once he killed his mirror image he was ready to go home.
I doubt if you gave the movie that much thought... you were too captivated by the glory of it all.
Do not try to match wits with me Snippy because you will lose.
