    Has anyone watched this yet?

    The husband really wanted to see this so we went late this afternoon. I knew it was going to be intense but my goodness!!! It was just too much for me :-( I was practically hysterical with that awful overwhelming crying thing at the end. I didn't realize it would have this effect on me. I stay away from war type movies because of that very reaction (it was not a pretty sight when we went to see Saving Private Ryan and Pearl Harbor).

    Other than that bad reaction on my part, it was really good. Tom Hanks is such an incredible actor. I love him.

    When I saw the title all I thought of was Princess Anne's ex husband









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I was very well aware of the story having tracked it in "real time" when it happened so I kinda knew what to expect. It was certainly a very emotionally charged movie and there was quite a bit of crying in the movie theatre. I truly think Tom Hanks deserves an award

    We saw it during a preview night a few weeks back. It packs a punch to be sure. The Maersk ship has Norfolk as its homeport (right across the river from us) and SEAL team 6 is based here in Norfolk. The pirate was tried in the city as well. So there was a great deal of interest here. We thought it was really a good movie. It is very intense to be sure.

    Tom Hanks was all over the place during the filming and people said he was just so approachable and nice. He kind of reminds me of a modern day Jimmy Stewart. That is good company let me tell you.

    Now, I admit I am a cryer. Sappy movies, people who overcome obstacles movies, feel good movies. I just cry at everything.

    However, this movie, was heavy. Don't go see it Julie. Not right now.
