Movie(s): Gods & Generals

Posted 21 February 2003 - 04:30 PM

Ok, this is a pre-review of the movie.

From what I've read, its the worst film *ever* made about the Civil War. Star cast, great director & it supposed to suck?

I don't know about the rest of ya'll (here in Dixie), but everything says that the Southern viewpoint isn't worth 3+ hours (how many hours of Yankee-centric history have we *all* had to put up with (spare me victors & history!))

I plan on seeing this ASAP (hopefully this weekend.) Most of our history lessons make the South out to be little better than Hitler's Germany (ironic w/Sherman's march being one of the greatest atrocity's of all time!)

I'm not saying that anyone *support* the South in any means, but see this flick to realise that the south is more than the losers.

PS: Little known fact, the south freed slaves *before* the Emancipation Proclimation! *doG* I love Dixie!

the whole movie is about the south surprising the hell outta the yanks and kickin ass..

its part of a trilogy so i wouldnt expect that from the next 2... gettysburg and something else.

Required an intermission, really? I might see that movie, being from Florida and all. I'll ask my history teacher what he thought of it. He's a history buff/movie nerd.
