Thx for reminding me of that movie .
Am in need of things to burn through the download quota .
Going to drop back to the 50GB plan I think, just can't find enough things that look interesting enough to DL these days .
Holy Moly what a flick! Seems a tad boring in the first bit (I like ships so I didn't find it bad but have heard comments that others don't like the start).
Then it ramps up and rolls along with some damn high tension for a while.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.
Good flick. Pretty long, but I was expecting it. I enjoyed pretty much the whole thing, character development, plot line, the voice over parts were pretty interesting. Overall, it kept me engaged for the 2+ hrs of film.
IMDB gives a 7.6 rating and I'd give it an 8.0 I reckon. Just about a must watch, but not quite there yet...
Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton (October 5, 1946 – March 16, 2009) was an American Appalachian moonshiner originally from Maggie Valley, North Carolina. He wrote a self-published autobiographical guide to moonshine production, and self-produced a home video depicting his moonshining activities, and he was later the subject of a documentary that won a Regional Emmy Award. He committed suicide in 2009 rather than report to Federal prison after being convicted of offenses related to moonshine production.
Yeah I didn't mind it much, I'd give it probably 3.5 as well. I figured before I watched it would be another of those badass 'murican blow stuff up movies.
With that in mind, I went in not expecting to be blown away by the plot, but it was still pretty good overall. Points detracted for the dodgy scenes near the end though...
The purpose of Operation Red Wings, which began on June 28, 2005, was first to identify Ahmad Shah, a key Taliban loyalist and leader believed to be hiding on the slopes of a mountain named Sawtalo Sar, located in the Pech District of Afghanistan's Kunar Province. After Marcus Luttrell and his three fellow SEALs carried out their reconnaissance and surveillance to indentify Shah and his men, the military could then engage the Taliban loyalists and disrupt the Anti-Coalition Militia (ACM) activity in the region. Shah, who was not part of the Taliban but sought allegiance with them, rose to power in the region after the forced surrender of an ACM leader named Najmudeen in 2005.
I watched Captain America 2 last night at the local cinema with my brother. Thought it was a great continuation of where it left off on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D(If any of you have been watching that) and I recommend anyone, Marvel fan or not. Don't necessarily have to watched the first Captain America 2 to get the story line but probably watching The Avengers would be a good start for those of you that have slacked off and haven't watched that Had a very decent story line and can't wait for the Avengers 2 and Captain America 3.
