Walrus, you're giving way too much credit to Hollywood! I'm confident those folks only have an understanding of the importance of money, not anything logical or realistic like historic accuracy or patriotism. Hollywood is no stranger to taking "artistic" liberties. We may be in the minority, but some of us don't believe everything we see in the movies :)
Except Batman, that's 100% true and accurate. Oh, and the Die Hard movies too (really any Bruce Willis movie). And James Bond. All coincidently solid EDCers. Everything else Hollywood totally fake.

 

Two Bruce Willis movies that tend to get overlooked on his impressive resumé are the two that I love the most.  The super hokey, but really fun, Hudson Hawk, and the totally kick@$$ action flick, The Last Boy Scout.

Paul Newman was basically perfect. I got about 4 minutes in Cloud Atlas the other day. Will give it another shot later, but I wasn't digging ot.

Has anyone seen American Sniper?

Reading Cloud Atlas was...difficult. I quite enjoyed the movie, though, but then again I'm kind of biased to Tom Hanks.

 

I'm about 1/3 into American Sniper myself, but as far as military shows/movies, my favorite so far are Lone Survivor and Strike Back, the latter of which I found while researching G-Shocks in the military. Very meaty in the military/tactics department, as well.

For anyone who has seen the Bourne series movies, but not read the books, I highly recommend the books. The movies were based loosely on the story and more just on the character. The books develeop both the character and the story much more deeply. If you enjoy tacticians, espionage, spying, etc, then you'll enjoy the books.

John Wick - unless you dont like constant action , high body count, and extreme violence. I am not a Keanu Reeves fan but it was a very good movie.

The wife and I saw American Sniper a couple of weeks ago. It was excellent! Not many films will render the audience completely quiet at the end. You couldn't even hear the seats in the theater raise back up after people got up. It was a little bit of an eerie feeling, but you knew that it was out of respect for Chris Kyle and the countless others that have given up so much for us.

Funny, I just picked up a Bruce Willis 3 pack with 12 Monkeys, The Jackyl and something else that I don't have in front of me. 12 Monkeys was a great one.


You know how I feel about horror movies, Walrus. Cabin in the Woods is a FANTASTIC modern day horror film. It blends an insanely well written script (for the genre) with humor, good acting, awesome directing and plenty of scares. It's one of the few movies I recommend to anyone who wants to be a casual "scary" movie fan.

I don't want to hijack James' thread with horror talk, but for anyone who's a fan of the 1982 Tobe Hooper directed Poltergeist (one of my faves), there's a reboot to be released this summer that actually looks VERY good. While I've mostly lost faith in the genre, a few gems still see the light of day. I think this will be one, despite being rated PG13. Here's the trailer that was released earlier this week for any of you interested.

Bradley Whitford was a pleasant surprise, as I've been a fan of his since West Wing.

I haven't seen the last Hobbit film yet, but I can't wait for it.

A few years old, but still my favorite movie, Inception.  If you havent seen it drop whatever you are doing and go watch it.  So mind blowing.

Mikey was it difficult because of content or because of poor writing? Is it worth a read?

The writing was good, just that the different perspectives and writing styles (it changes based on the character's POV) would break my momentum. I think it's still worth a read, but I enjoyed the movie far more than I did the book.

Forgot to mention Interstellar,  I would say this slightly outranks Inception, mostly because I have a huge fascination with space.  This movie is phenomenal.

Loved it. Don't often buy physical copies of movies, but I jumped on that.

Any Event Horizon fans?
