    Book Page writes, “an account that moves like a Hollywood action adventure…there are heroes to root for, villains to hiss at and an increasingly pressing race against time…Whether you’re a fan of art, military history or stories of real-life heroes, The Monuments Men is a treasure worth the hunt”. I hope your blog will profile these great heroes of civilization and share their story with your readers and supporters.

    Thank You,

    Wow,
    not sure what to think about these, since I have not seen them all. I totally diagree wtih Volver.

  3. Adam Says:

    How can you not have Pan’s Labyrinth, Lord of the rings (return of the king), or Dark Night, How bout Crouching tiger???

    • jeredunn Says:

      Dark Knight is a good action film, but it ends there for me. And I was going to have Crouching Tiger and decided to put Azumi there instead. Same sort of film, but Azumi is a bit more bloody and less well known. So I am guilty of trying to be different. I think most people would agree with you.
