I like the Thin Red Line (part of my WWII collection). I most like when Styles and his patrol went up the hill and took on that Jap Mg crew. Very intense and tiring. I could feel how drained that situation could really of been. The soldier w/ the .45....... I bet he's glad he took it.
I also stumbled onto saints and soldiers in my local wal-mart. I liked it , and would recommend it.
The Series on PBS is called "Island at war" also highly recommended.
Last, I rented a movie called "The Bunker" which had the stupidest box art of nazi zombies but sounded interesting. I wasn't expecting much from it but surprisingly it had nothing to do with zombies. It's about a group of german soldiers giving in to their fears. worth a watch in my opinion.
I really liked Saints and Soldiers The [CENSORED CENSORED CENSORED CENSORED] by the way and I happen to be one so that made it even more cool to me...I understand most people wouldn't care about that but I liked it. It was really well made I thought.

You know I saw a billboard for that move about a year ago and then I never heard about it again. My favorite scene in any WWII movie has to be in SPR when Tom Hank's character seems to blow up the tank with the .45

Some men aren't looking for anything logical. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
Always Carry Rope. You'll never know why you need it, but you'll always end up needing it.
I liked Saints and Soldiers, watched it a few days ago. I especialy liked their grenade fight near the end. That was really funny, when one German threw a stick grenade, and it hit another German's hiding spot.

Its the begining stages of the battle of the bulge in the Ardennes forest. There wasn't much fighting becuase the allies where caught off guard and surrendered, or fleed (which brings us to the Malmedy massacre at the begining of the movie). So yeah, it basically was the battle of the bulge.
I loved it but i dident think the real people who escaped the malmedy massacure went on to fight there way back to the american lines.

1. A Private saying, "I learned this in basic training..." 2. A Sergeant saying, "Trust me, sir..." 3. A Second Lieutenant saying, "Based on my experience..." 4. A Captain saying, "I was just thinking..." 5. And a Warrant Officer chuckling, "Watch this S@#$..."

ok thanks, I saw it on the history channel a while ago and enjoyed it. when i saw it on the history chanel they had guests on who said that it took place in the battle of the bulge during its early stages. I'm not sure if the story is actually true though.
"resinpaste" " "29thletsgo What unit are you portraying" "what are condoms?" paleoguy12 (9:18:08 PM): id make a sexy f@cking girl "I are also do 505th"
I liked the movie. I actually know a few people who were in it. The German FJ sniper who kills the main chatacter (was his name Deacon? I forgot) for example....is a fellow AZ reenactor who I know.
The story was fabricated....the 101st was not in the area of the Maldemy Massacre (St. Vith and Malmedy). A reenactor asked the director why they chose the 101st (when it was incorrect) and he said it was because they are "well known". Who knows....maybe we can pretend they were "separated from their squad and were attached to anohther unit". Great movie nonetheless.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
