Yeah I remember that film. Is that the one where they try to hold their breathe the longest in the pub? That scene was quite intense.

Aye aye,

Good film.

Another good film for any aspiring soldier: The Thin Red Line.

Yeah the Thin Red line is another great movie.

Another movie not many people know about is Brotherhood. It's pretty much like the Korean version of Saving Private Ryan about two brothers fighting each other in the Korean war.

I've seen that. Isn't there a court case at the end where Cuba Gooding Jr has been crippled in a diving accident, but he's still able to dive, and he's trying to be allowed to still do his job? I thought it was great.

A good film I've seen recently is 9th Company:

It's a Russian film about their soldiers in Afghanistan. It's based on true events and follows a company of soldiers through training and into Afghanistan.

Another good one is The Warriors:

It was a BBC made for TV film about British soldiers in Bosnia. It's a pretty good account of life for the Peacekeepers over there during the worst of the fighting. The absurd rules of engagement, the effect of crimes against humanity on the soldiers who could do little more than stand and watch:

One of the best scenes in the film:

Matthew Macfadyen trying to provoke one of the Serb butchers into attacking him so he can kill him.
