I have to say that while I think that Black Hawk Down is a great film it is ruined by the American Film Propoganda system. Based on real events this is how patriotic and brave the American soldiers are, lets ignores the bombs we accidentally dropped when we left. Having said that it is alot better than Pearl Harbour and the look at us Americans that saved the British during the Battle of Britian then took a totally fictional ship to seek revenge against the Japanese, I mean come on their were 21 American pilots in the battle of Britian and they were all RAF men that were American army rejects. Sorry for the rant but it had to be said.

Do not disallusion yourself brothers, today we die, our bodies broken and our souls shattered, we will be remembered as corpses on a battlefield.Raise hell my brothers for one day our great Father will hear of our struggle, and he will be honoured to call us his Sons. In death our Glory shall become eternal.' Karik Farron, 1st Lord of the Dark Scorchers at the Fall of Kempar.

I see no one has mentioned 9th Company yet. Its kind of a Full Metal Jacket but in Afghanistan. Not as good as FMJ by the way, and in Russian with subtitles, but have a look if you're into the genre.
My favourite is Pearl Harbour (Joke!)

Stick a V8 in it!

Instead of Favouraite I will say that PAtroit Games is the worst movie ever that massacres a brilliant book

You mean this totally fictional event?

If that's the one you were referring to, you, sir, can go eat a dick and then kindly go fuck yourself.

Black Hawk Down was an AWESOME movie

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

In that case I appologise, but it still has enough bullshit in it, and suffers from the hollywood affect, to much for me to ever think of it as a good film

Hey, apology accepted. I get a little defensive at times. You're absolutely right, though, the movie was shit.

Saving Private Ryan for the gritty reality.

However, 300 for the SHEER BURL that was involved.
