Book Trailer of the Week: American Sniper (movie version)
Suddenly, I seem to have more movie choices than I've had in years. Whether this is a fluke, or the movie industry has actually turned the corner and is starting to make more adult films than comic book rip-offs, I don't know. I'll just take advantage of it while the opportunity presents itself.
"American Sniper" is based on the Chris Kyle autobiography of the same name. Kyle was murdered on a firing range while working with/counseling a veteran with mental problems associated with that veteran's own service to this country. Kyle's story is a sad one that needs to be told because too many Americans don't understand just how much a few good men are sacrificing on behalf of the rest of us.
