Green Zone – 2010 – Paul Greengrass

Time Magazine called Green Zone the eight best film of 2010. More like 156th. Greengrass casts his go-to-guy Matt Damon as an army brass who suspects there is more to the second Iraq war than WMDs. A poor companion to Hurt Locker, In the Valley of Elah and especially Generation Kill.JJ

Buffalo Soldiers – 2001 – Gregor Jordan

Joaquin Phoenix plays an opportunistic American soldier stationed in Germany prior to the end of the Cold War with nothing to fight except boredom and the occasional superior officer. Makes me ponder what Yossarian from Catch 22 could have been like if he sold American WMDs on the black market. JJ
