    Stay for the 30 minute mini-documentary after the ending credits are over. Worth the wait.]
    Enjoy.

    For those that missed today's showings, the DVD is already out, but it is region 2 and will not play in U.S. DVD players. (Darn Brits, they have to do everything differently.)
    Jokes aside, I have to believe that, if they issued a Region 2 DVD, they will issue a Region 1 DVD as well. Big market, the United States/Canada...

    I really wanted to be able to see this but wasn’t able to on the days it showed. I really hope they release the DVD soon- I will buy it in a flash.

    The end of that trailer was chilling: “There was a job to be done. And you just got on and did it”.
    -Why's it us Sergeant? Why us?
    -Because we're here lad. Nobody else. Just us.

    -"I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened."
    -"So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

    I noticed you can now get the DVD on Amazon, but it's not the format that will play in North America.

    I was hoping it would be in the theaters in a wider release.

    I guess I will have to wait until the DVD(or streaming) becomes available.

    Good catch. I have to believe that the BBC will release a Region 1 DVD in the near future. I think there is a bit of interest n these United States.
    I'd probably buy a copy.

    We have tickets to a showing tomorrow at noon.

    Hope we don't get asked to leave for coughing too much......................

    They seem to struggle with most concepts post the Age of Steam.

    Just got back from viewing it. Nothing I can say will measure up to describing it. You must see this, if the chance comes your way.

    You also must stay the additional 1/2 hour, for the bit about how it was made. The whole endeavour is an amazing feat.

    Nice touch with the British spelling there.

    Well, my o/s is Linux, and it defaults to their spell check. Annoying, really...............

    Re: They Shall Not Grow Old WW I film by Peter Jackson

    Saw it yesterday with my father. Both enjoyed it greatly. I thought they put a bit too much of the old jerky footage at the beginning although I know what they were trying to accomplish - and it worked, it did add to the juxtaposition when they went to the altered footage but I think it could have had the same effect starting it a bit sooner. It really does impact how you view the people in videos like that when you see them moving in a natural motion.

    The documentary at the end was really awesome too. It was impressive what detail could be pulled from those darkened films. There should really be an ongoing effort aimed at doing this to any old archive of film to save and digitize it.

    Also, those feet.

    I really hope they do some more with different following different countries and their veterans doing interviews in the future.
