My unsolicited opinion: Charlie Wilson’s War is a pretty damn good movie. After loving the book, Shannon and a friend convinced me to give it (the book) a try, and I thought it was a fine read; a few months ago, we were both pretty excited to see a preview for the movie, not having had any clue that the project was in the works. We had the usual fear that translating a 560-page book into a 90-minute film wouldn’t go so well, but all things said, Aaron Sorkin did a really good job, and tonight we all left the movie satisfied.
