War movies

Reader comment on item: "24" and Hollywood's Discovery of Radical Islam

Submitted by Jeremy Brindlethorpe (United States), Jan 23, 2005 at 16:33

In response to the question: Why are there no movies about the current war? (I assume we are not counting Farenheit 911) Most war movies have been made only after the featured conflict is over. This was true of WW2, Korea, Vietnam, and GW1, so I assume the same will be true of GW2.

As for not featuring muslim terrorists, everyone knows it is those Antarctican terrorists who are really dangerous, so we should expect to see them featured prominently in many upcoming films.
