    Dude could not utter the simple phrase "I took the Hippocratic Oath; I am not allowed to kill. You know I'm a doctor, right?". That movie was so maddening with Garfield's excessively tragic overacting and over-the-top religiousity I had to leave. Also, as previously posted, half of it was BS. Seemed designed to take advantage of the same crowd that bought that American Sniper BS.

    My favourite 100% real story is the Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

    It helped that because he was surrounded by Asian actors his height didn't stand out.

    Ed Gein was one severely messed up individual.

    He really missed his calling as a tailor. :boo:

    I've read much about the Forrestal. As an aviation guy, the thought of something like that happening is always there, (I've had my berthing on 2 deployments directly under where those bombs went off) but on the bright side, the likelihood of that happening again are extremely slim.

    Most wouldn't know it, but the bombs that blew up on the Forrestal were left overs from WW2 (the fire was in 67'). There were also key procedures that the AO's (ordnance men) didn't follow for the sake of having the launch times faster. That was exactly what allowed the first missile to get launched across the flight deck.

    Also, not everyone knows the John McCain was rescued from 1 of those aircraft on fire. 134 Sailors died that day.

    No one else liked the remake of Inglorious Bastards? It's awesome.

    Saving Private Ryan is just too good. I think all others WW2 movies fall short of that one, but plenty of good ones.

    Somebody else mentioned the boy in the striped pajamas, such a sad story.

    Hacksaw Ridge was a good story, bad movie. I thought the story line was limited in the actual war activity, but I also think the acting was bad and I didn't buy Andrew Garfield as that character.

    Good list overall, I've got a few movies to watch now.

    Did anyone think Fury was good? I'm straddling the fence on my thoughts of it.

    Yes and no.

    The tank scenes are GREAT... but there's a part in the middle that slows it waaaay down. That part is a look into the crew's psyche, personality... but it kills the flow.

    But those tank scenes... awesomeness.


    Check it out.
