Well within thread protocols and has been mentioned numerous times since it was first shown on the anniversary.Can't read 1100 previous posts, if this is outside thread protocols then shred your head .
Just got "We Shall Remember Them" on BBC catch-up, colorised and oral-history dubbed voices of actual WW1 troops with a little bit of CGI, right cleverly done to Disney/Pixar standards. It's not a fillum, per se, but it ought to be and it blew my socks off.
Next week, with the wife to Abigail's Party on stage, see how it compares to the TV version .....
Lovely girl , far too young for some of us but if she ends up anywhere near like Holly Hunter did in 30 years time she'll be doing well. Even now HH has aged quite well tbf.While she plays an 18-year old in the film, Hailee Steinfeld is actually 22, and I find her cracking.
In the DVD extras there's a deleted scene alternate ending where Mel tels Gen. Westmoreland in no uncertain terms just where he's going wrong and if only he was allowed to this, that and the other. Apparently this "based" (quite loosely) on a real meeting between Moore and the general but Mel took the opportunity for a bit of a political-rant-dressed-as-movie-making - which is probably why it ended up on the cutting room floor.We Were Soldiers on 5Spike
Never seen it before so settled in with a decent red and enjoyed a cracking film about that f*cked up mess of a war.
Interestingly this is an interview with Joe Galloway, the journalist seen in the movie and co-author of the book

Miles better than Stallone's effort.I watched Dredd (again) on Channel 4 last night, after the missus headed off for an early night. Some fantastic visuals, loads of violence and a really scary Lena Headley. A brilliant performance too from Karl Urban’s helmet! Great stuff when you don’t want to invest too much grey matter to the watching experience - bloody adverts were annoying though!
