The Men Who Stare At Goats

You know one of those movies you find which have such a glorious concept that you wish you're the only person in the world that knows about it so you can tell everyone else?

Yeah, this is one of them. Curse you advertising campaign.

Just saw this.

I loved it! Some may criticize the characters and plot that are flimsy at best, but when you put that aside it's pretty entertaining and weird.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I'm a sucker for George Clooney in silly roles, especially if there's a moustache involved. Then there's a couple of other good actors and a great concept as an added bonus.

I really enjoyed this movie, the general who supported the start of the New Earth Army was my favorite.  Not The Dude, they guy with gray hair and mustache.
Probably not a Goat, either.

I love the tagline on the poster:

Fantastic movie, definitely worth a watch.

My only complaint is that They should have ended it just a second earlier, just as he was getting to the wall.  They spent the entire movie leaving you wondering whether the psychics were crazy/lucky or actually managing some of these things.  I felt it was a little cheapened by the reporter actually making it through.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.
