Stop-Loss

According to Deadline Hollywood Daily, the movie “Stop-loss” opened to the meager tune of 1.6 million yesterday. An unnamed studio source was cited as saying, “No one wants to see Iraq war movies. No matter what we put out there in terms of great cast or trailers, people were completely turned off. It’s a function of the marketplace not being ready to address this conflict in a dramatic way because the war itself is something that’s unresolved yet. It’s a shame because it’s a good movie that’s just ahead of its time.”

Or, here’s another thought: Stop-loss is apparently about a soldier refusing to return to duty. Perhaps instead of portraying U. S. military personal as monsters, unwilling victims, dupes and criminals the movie studios might try making a movie in which they are the good guys, doing good things. You know–an ACCURATE movie.

They could take a hint from God and Country, which I have linked below.
