on good/$$$ movies

I just watched what is considered to be one of the greatest movies ever made in the 21st century.


a great movie, and I'd definitely watch it again - that and Black Hawk Down back to back (oh, and I need to pick up The Thin Red Line).

after IMDB-ed the movie (a habit I got into after viewing any film), I discovered some disturbing facts...

The OMUHA beach scene alone costed $11 million.
This is also the first DreamWorks film to cross the $100 million mark.

These are scary numbers. A good film - nonetheless, scary, outrageous numbers...

This is western media for us: worldvision showing victims of post-war devastation/screwed-up colonization and at the same time showing commercials of blockbusters that cost............

go figure.
