I watched the movie Red Belt on Saturday. I pretty much had to, since it was George Mamet’s first movie since announcing that he was, and I quote, “No longer a brain-dead liberal.”
It was a decent movie. Not the greatest flick ever, but definitely watchable. The main reason that I’m writing about it is that I’M MENTIONED IN IT. Probably not intentionally, but the Japanese character in the movie mentions “Yamato Damashii” repeaetedly, which was my username on many sites after I got out of the Marines. It’s the first time I’ve heard it mentioned anywhere outside of Japan, so it was vaguely cool.
If you’re me. 🙂
