I had expected pro US propaganda and gory scenes, but the post 9/11 story was fair and respectful. It was a well executed film, I thought the first scene was well conceived, and the final scenes realistic without the usual Hollywood dramatics.
Thank you for the members who turned up (only 1 no show), and I enjoyed our discussion at lunch. Hope to see you next time :)

Many thanks for your interest in watching Zero Dark Thirty on Sunday morning - please be at the cinema at 10.00 AM for the 10.20 AM session.
If you are planning a late Saturday night and/or you're not a morning person, please update your RSVP to "no" so the group does not wait for you. No shows are recorded.
I've booked a table for us at Time Out Restaurant at Federation Square. Check out the menu at the website: http://www.timeoutmelbourne.com....
Please bring CASH so a range of $5s, $10s and $20s would be helpful because they DON'T SPLIT BILLS. This means that you will not be able to pay for your portion with your credit/debit card.
As reservations have been made, please update your rsvp status by Friday 15-Feb if you don't intend to come. It is unfair to the restaurant if less people show up than expected.
If you only wish to watch the film and not join us for lunch, please let me know.
Looking forward to seeing you all :)
