Wow there's going to be a hollywood film about British soldiers and their not evil!

If it's Spielberg film it will start promisingly then descend into a schmaltz-fest about two thirds of the way through.. All his films do.

About half the members of ARRSE are in it as extra's
Do they play the inmates of a prison camp, that have had genetic experiments carried out on them and are forced to regale their captors with tall stories for their entertainment?

No ****** asked me though!

Saw it in Town on the original run. Good. Book by some unpronouncable kids writer.
The book was written by Michael Morpurgo, who is a very good children's author.

I went to go and see the play and found it a turgid sentimental mess, you can predict every plot point about 20 minutes in advance and it's replete with every 'war is hell' cliche you could imagine. The best ting about it was the puppetry on the horse, which was genuinely amazing and very clever, the rest was hackneyed nonsense.

I'm waiting for the Jutland film, it's based on the brilliant book "Jutland 1916: Death in the Grey Wastes", which is mainly a collection of eyewitness accounts. It does however star "Call me Sir" Ben Kingsley so I won't get too optimistic.

I actually met a couple of the production crew last time I was down in Chippenham last year. I also found out that a friend's horses are in it as extras, so I'll be giving the cinema some money when it comes out.

At least there will still be .303 weapon porn in it.

It is a CHILDRENS book, written to commemorate the million odd horses the British Army lost in WW1
