I liked when they found hitlers big stash of sauce at the end. Par-Tay!
I watched that so many times, what a great series!

Hi Mufasa - no mate, I will give it a look - I expect I will like it.
NWo, I just finished watching "The one that got away" tonight, now I'm going to have to find "Conspiracy" too, sounds good.
Did you like "The one that got away?" I like the bit when Chris Ryan is heading North and the headlights appear, and he thinks his mate has lifted a car and has come to find him, then he sees the two sets of headlights and immediately sparks up, even although he is exhausted, 66 anti tank missile into one vehicle, M203 grenade into the other, M16 machine gun for survivors, and then when out of ammunition gently places the gun on the ground, draws his knife and runs after the last survivor, climbs onto him, pulls him down and then uses the knife.
Chris Ryan went onto "selection" after that picking those recruits to the SAS - followed by more "guilt" having picked a bloke who ultimtaely died in Bosnia.

I did like it a lot, it is quite a story, but at the same time there were parts that bugged me. Like the scene you mentioned above, it makes a great scene for a movie, but I couldn't help but think the actions were reckless and careless. Think about it, if you were separated from your troop and completely alone in an enemy country during a war, in the dark, and you spot two enemy troop carriers approaching, you would hide until they passed by, not single handedly launch an attack. Rambo!
But if it is a true story, and that's the way it went down, then that is amazing that was the outcome. Incredible.
And again, when they had commandeered that taxi, and they were approaching a military checkpoint, it bugged me that they all just piled out and started shooting, instead of trying to be stealthy about it. This time things didn't turn out so good, as I would expect, leading to them all being captured or killed. Just a bad decision.
But these are minor points, overall it was a good movie to watch, and if faithful to the true story, a great movie to watch. I imagine this is something that would never be shown in the States, so I like to be able to see something out of the ordinary like that.

A few observers felt the stories, (both Chris Ryan`s and Andy McNab`s) were over played, although apparently it is factual and they (the 8 man SAS patrol) did kill nearly 200 Iraqi`s, and that Chris walked 200 miles to escape.
One of the patrol (Dinger - Ian Pring, ex Parachute Regiment and Falklands SAS Vet, and still local bloke to Hereford) apparently, when asked about the authenticity said that Andy McNab`s story was pretty much as it happened and that he would like to see anyone else do it.
I hope you like Conspiracy - as that is a great film.

Tonight it was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The ex hated Harry, now I can watch it whenever I please, so I'm catching up on the movies.
Now I'm watching The Big Lebowski, until I get tired.

Atlas Shrugged- The Movie - K4RM4 - 03-06-2011 09:10 AM
The great one doesn't read those books anymore but I thought I'd post the fact that the movie is coming out. I wonder which is going to be better, the book or the movie?
Check the link...

"Heavy Metal"... wow - haven't even thought of that one in years.
I can remember seeing that in the theater in 81'. It was the first animated film that gave me.... naughty thoughts.
