Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Although not technically a film, it was a two part effort, Stephen King's "IT" is perfect for a remake. The book terrified me and the original film had good moments but not scary enough, It was ruined by the pathetic special effects regarding "IT", stupid trash looking spider thing. They could make it really scary now and make "IT" a proper monster when it appears at the end.

  4. A Bridge Too Far... with a bit more truth about the British leadership effect on the outcome... hopefully not advised by past British General Staff. And, a bit more on the real battle the men on the bridge faced, and the subsequent escape and evasion. And, a bit more than three Dakotas taking off being filmed from different angles umpteen bloody times.

    .......ah-hang on.


    Eddie Murphy plays Cetawayo. The Zulus win. Tom Cruise as Lt Chard wins all the VCs but is rogered to death by a whole impi of 6 footers.

    'Spice Girls-The Movie'. Ann Widdecombe plays all of them.

  9. This is the one starring Bodil Joenson, not the Orwell allegory, right?
  10. U571 with the Royal Navy

    Escape to Victory with Peter Shilton in goal

    Battle of the Bulge with Montgomery stopping the breakthrough not Kojak

    To Hell and Back with someone a bit taller and more believable than Audie Murphy. How he got the gig is beyond me

  11. Zulu. But done in the style of Blackhawk Down, which to all intents, it actually was - and nothing like the blancoed, Welsh glory-fest that Cy Enfield depicted.

    The Battle of Britain: using no big names whatsoever and lots of top end CGI with Ju88s and Do17s. Very do-able after watching Ashcroft's new tv series on 5.

    Trafalgar. Not a remake, but a newmake. Why has it not been done?

    Deep Throat: starring the former French justice minister Rachida Dati. Oooooh yeeees! I'd buy that for a dollar!
  12. She looks like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth. Leather's good 'cos you can wipe it down.
  13. Dieppe. British Braid fecking up once again and the Commonwealth taking the beating... with lessons learnt...

  14. Imjin Korea. Now that must be some kind of great movie, even the American General gave us credit.
