Ok..I gotta preface this post by saying that I'm a huge history and war movie buff, and have probably seen every significant movie ever made. Thus, I'm hardly sensitive to graphic violence, like the stuff in such classics as "Braveheart" or even that opening 20-minutes at Omaha Beach in "Saving Private Ryan." (which up until now, was for my money the most disturbing depiction of war violence in a movie.)
So I've been watching HBO's "The Pacific." I really enjoyed "Band of Brothers" so I was hoping this would be as good. Well, I don't think it's quite as good as BoB, yet, last night a scene from The Pacific blew me away, as I never expected something quite so surreal and graphic to be depicted on cable. Is it me, or was that scene where that crazy wackjob Marine was tossing pebbles into the topless skull of a dead Japanese soldier about as lurid a thing as ever filmed?
What say you?

I think stuff like that actually happened, and I am glad they showed how horrible it was. Who wants a watered down version of a story?
