Considering all the movies out there that are pure garbage, The Monuments Men definitely gets my approval. It takes place during World War II and has some famous actors playing goofy soldiers trying to recover artwork stolen by the Nazi’s. This is one of those movies that, for me anyway, only gets better when you realize it’s all based on truth. Does that happen to you too? It seems once a movie leans towards non-fiction my mind gets into a state of higher appreciation. Regardless, the movie is definitely worth a look.

It turns out that stolen Nazi artwork seems to be the rage lately. Ever since The Monuments Men debuted, every major media outlet wants to run stories on stolen artwork.
