I like SPR, but for WWII films I like others better. The Bridge At Remagen, Sahara, The Train, A Walk in the Sun, Das Boot, and others.

I don't have a problem with the framing device in SPR. To me, the biggest problem is the PLOT - taking like 7 troops out of battle to trek across Europe looking for one dude, (in Shrek accent, "Like that's ever gonna happen!") that is something you have to be able to laugh at and not let bother you. Otherwise I felt it was basically perfect. (Again, I haven't seen it since high schol - aka at the time I saw it, my favorite movie ever was THE PATRIOT Cheesy - so I can't know how I'd feel if I saw it today.

I always enjoy watching it with my dad, who points out how stupid everything the main characters do is.

I wasn't a big fan of The Bridge at Remagen.

There is a movie called Les Maudits aka The Damned that was just released on BRD, first time it's ever been released on any format, I believe, since the original run in 1947 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0039615/ I really love that movie; I don't think anyone else here has seen it besides DJ, who doesn't like it that much

Isn't there a war film thread?



I see there is a WWII Films thread http://www.fistful-of-leone.com/forums/index.php?topic=6450.0
I am not sure if there is a general war films thread

But remember, this is also being offered as a steelbook (Target exclusive).

I never read Savant's page. Read it a few times years ago and never again. He can say whatever he wants and I won't even know it  Wink

So both versions are exactly alike except for the Target version being a steelbook and the other version being (to quote Beaver) a "standard Blu-ray case inside cardboard slipcase"? In other words, the physical case is the only difference between the two?

Now we'll find out who on this board is a real patriot, and who is a French Surrender-Monkey.

I am NOT a patriot (I have no idea what that word means anyway). But I am a fan of good movies, and this is a good movie. And I still don't own any discs of it, so maybe i should get this new one? Does it have everything on the old one plus extras? Then may as well get this one ...

If you don't know what the word "patriot" means, how can you know that you are not one? On what do you base your assertion? Did you flip a coin?
