    The thing about Nick is, I think he always looks bad in previews, but I invariably end up liking his movies.

    I was listening to NPR yesterday and they mentioned that Windtalkers is about the American Indians who worked as translaters for the war effort. I remember reading a story about this in Readers Digest some years and it was fascinating.

    Basically the USA used these Indians as translaters because no one besides one of them could understand their language. Therefore our transmissions remained secret throughout the entire war.

    It was really cool.

    It wasn't through the entire war as they were only used for a few short months.

    I would see Bourne. Another great Tom Clancy movie. That and I'm not really into war movies too much

    As much as I like Nicholas Cage, I dont think Windtalkers will be any good.
    In a world where the human mind
    can be programmed like a computer,
    at what point does the human soul end
    and the cybernetic machinery begin?

    I thought The Bourne Identity was by Robert Ludlum?

    Also, didn't Richard Chamberlain star in a movie of the same name?

    Whatever, they're both the same to me

    That's right, Clancy==Ryan, Ludlum==can't write a series

    i'd like to see both, but there's no doubt Bourne will be better.

    but for Windtalkers
