Born on the Fourth of July 
Tom Cruise at his best
3.5/4 stars

I am not much of a war movie buff, but I do like to see good character development in a movie. Somehow I'd always managed to miss this movie, partly because it starred Tom Cruise, but when I finally saw it I was very impressed by his portrayal of Ron Kovic--through a kaleidoscope of emotions, jarring episodes and epiphanies. The scenes of battle are harrowing, but no more so than his meltdown back home in front of his stupefied family.

The parade scenes were shot a couple of miles from where I live, so that was a bonus for me.
