Sorry for my absence for the last week, given Film Nerd has a new job and can’t sit in front of the screen, big or small, with the same regularity as previously. To compensate for this, I intend to post a number of reviews this week from one of my favourite directors, Ed Zwick. His films specialise in telling stories from forgotten historical events. Some of the stories it almost seems a crime they were forgotten at all, so his work highlights the efforts of some really amazing people. Of course, there is also an element of artistic license with the facts, to make events more dramatic, or to reduce time frames, however the spirit of the story remains true to life.
So enjoy these reviews as they come along. Hopefully it will not be too long before I can review some new releases again. I am particularly keen to see The A-Team!!
Live Long and Prosper,
