Two movie reviews

"Fly Boys" is a big thumbs-up. Wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not, and have to confess it's been sitting by the DVD player for weeks. Literally.

The lack of interest was probably due to the setting: WWI in France.

But, don't let that hold you back. The Frenchiness is kept to a minimum, and the lead character is a Texan.

Some great aerial combat scenes with old-timey bi-wings and tri-wings. Just wish they'd invente the parachute sooner for some of those poor airmen . . .

"Pan's Labyrinth," another movie that I've been delaying, mostly because it's in Spanish with subtitles.

Let me warn you, definitely not a kid movie.

The digital animation is amazing, but a very, very dark story line with some gruesome scenes. But, what else can you expect from a film set in the middle of the Spanish Civil War, right?!
