Worth Watching - Oct 22: Kimberly Peirce's Stop Loss Trailer

I'm going to be very frank. I'm tired of these damn war / Iraq movies. I really did not like Brian De Palma's Redacted at all and Home of the Brave was the worst movie of the last decade, not even kidding. They're getting way too overdone and they're becoming boring; even the American public doesn't care much for them. Stop Loss is the latest war movie and it unfortunately it annoys me even more. This has absolutely nothing to do with my political views or my stance on the war, but just that Hollywood has taken this too far. Have a look for yourself.
Watch the trailer for Stop Loss:
Stop Loss is directed and co-written by Kimberly Peirce, of 1999's Oscar-winning Boys Don't Cry, her only major directing credit. The film stars Ryan Phillippe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Channing Tatum, Timothy Olyphant, and Abbie Cornish. Stop Loss hits theaters next March 28th, 2008.
