  1. Fantastic film. So refreshing to see a director do things in an unconventional, yet effective, way.
  2. "His" generals and military experts don't work at the Pentagon.
  3. Looks like you just answered my follow-up question. But I question your suggestion that they were forced to have an all out ban because of "all the legal requirements associated." It appears that the coverage change in 2016 that you reference was the result of a letter from the Office of Personnel Management changing it's internal policy on coverage requirements. It's not like there was a Supreme Court ruling on the subject. http://www.slate.com/blogs/outward/2015/06/30/gender_transition_expenses_federal_benefits_providers_can_no_longer_refuse.html
  4. So if cost savings is your big issue (and not discriminating against transgender individuals), wouldn't the better approach to go back to pre-2016 coverage rules, as opposed to completely banning transgender individuals from serving in the military in any capacity?
  5. By that logic, shouldn't transgender people be banned from all government employment, as opposed to just the military?
  6. I loved the "American Sex" Freudian slip. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=Jpu-elZI1yY&t=10m55s
  7. Donald Trump speaking today to the Boy Scout Jamboree. The Boy Scout Law: A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent. How many of those does our current President exemplify?
  8. Okay, I get that you don't know their background or some of their names. But character development can also encompass gaining an understanding about how a person reacts to their surroundings. Given what I understand about the event itself and the focused timeline of the movie, it wouldn't really make sense for people to be introducing themselves to one another or discussing their backgrounds. So I would think that including that kind of character development would feel forced in a movie focused on this particular event.
  9. When you say zero character development, do you mean that we learn nothing about any of the characters by observing how they react to the situation they find themselves in? Or do you mean we don't learn anything about them personally (where they are from, who they have back home, which guy is the jokester, etc.)?
  10. There were a few shots during the sea battle that seemed to have extremely poor production value. Kind of surprised me actually.
  11. In addition, if there were video of the event, the coverage of this story would be overwhelming.
  12. Glioblastoma. Not good.
  13. I was under the impression that in most jurisdictions it is difficult to become a cop and there is a long list of folks interested in the job.
