Movie Update: Americans Acting Badly

As noted here and here, Hollyweird has been in an antiwar mood lately, but these movies are anything but hits.
In a finger-wagging article titled "Iraq’s Other Bombs," Investor's Business Daily notes, for example, that Brian DePalma’s "Redacted" "drew a measly $34,000 at its opening and only $10,039 over the big Thanksgiving weekend.
Grinding its political ax, IBD says that Americans are sick of the Iraq war but desperate for "good" Iraq war movies. I think they've got it half right. The first half, that is.
Then there is the third half. These just aren't particularly good movies.
