    Yeah, shame.

    Nil, Spartacus for shits and giggles, and some great characters. Make sure (this applies to both) that you have a widescreen version.

    I have the Bluray versions of both of them, so I figure I'll be alright.

    Saw "The Sapphires" tonight. A very nice, sweet movie--my wife especially loved it.

    Seeing this post .. I decided to download and watch the Avengers.

    Thought it was pretty entertaining. Definitely a cookie-cutter Marvel / Super Hero movie .. so absolutely nothing special about it. Which, makes it hard to hate.

    I would add We Were Soldiers to that list. According to my old man, who was in the war, it rings the truest of the major movies about Vietnam. At the other end of the realism scale, he thinks Platoon is completely full of shit.

    Thank you Munch. I'll do them both. Never saw Coming Home when it originally came out because I was not a fan of Voight at that time but I certainly am today. Rescue Dawn...had to look that one up...Werner Herzog? In interviews, he always comes across as such an arrogant bastard.....lol...but I really enjoy his films.
    My favourite words spoken by Werner are 'salmon carcasses' in Grizzly Man...it just cracks me up, even though the film itself was very sad. Thank you for the recommendations and I WILL watch both.



    Thanks Pen. Had to look this one up as well. I WILL see this for sure.
    By the way, what did your dad think of Full Metal Jacket?



    Good Morning, Vietnam.uhh....well, no, but thank you. It was 'ok' once but has no staying power as a valuable Vietnam war film. It did have its moments though to be fair. I'm startin' to worry about you son, and yes, you do have to watch FMJ and Platoon. ...Watch FMJ first.


    Thanks to everyone!....I would love even more suggestions, but please, nothing with Chuck Norris or Sylvester Stallone...lol.
    Oh, ..found another one Tunnel Rats (2008) ...haven't watched it as yet but it is on-topic.
    Thanks again to all.
