"Ted"

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1637725/

A movie hasn't made me laugh this much in a long time.

I just watched Parker at a friend's place.

It's alright. If you like constant shooting, unrealistic action, unrealistic healing times and women it's a good movie...

The plot didn't suck me in and the acting was decent I guess. Jason Statham isn't the greatest in my book. I'd give this movie a 6.8 out of 10.

Manticore - "US Soldiers in the Middle East come fact-to-face with a legendary creature that a vengeful Iraqi has unleashed"

This movie is gonna be hilarious. It's on the Syfy Channel so you already know it's gonna suck. It's a "Watch it to see how bad it is" kind of movie.

EDIT: Oh god.... US Soldiers driving a BTR's? Female soldiers? More shooting from the hip than Call of Duty? Blank tan uniforms with a sloppy 10th Mountain Division patch? I'm not even 5 minutes into the movie. I think at one point they called themselves Marines.

Two Questions:

What's your favorite movie?
What are you currently watching?
My all time favorite movie would have to be:

"The Ballad of Cable Hogue"

Ballad of Cable Hogue is a 1970 Western film directed by Sam Peckinpah and starring Jason Robards, Stella Stevens and David Warner

My second all time favorite movie would be:

"Rio Bravo"

Rio Bravo is a 1959 American Western film directed by Howard Hawks and starring John Wayne, Dean Martin, and Ricky Nelson.

Question: Who is still alive from this 1959 western movie classic?

Cast

The entire movie might be crap but that part is not inaccurate.

Is this person not a solider to you?(her arm got ripped off by an RPG)

Watched the Matrix films over the weekend, I still think the two part conclusion was a error.

I'm just wondering...There's a few in that movie. I ended up not watching the rest after about 20 minutes. It was too terrible, but this is the 10th Mountain supposedly?

This female soldier had to have been infantry...she wasn't EOD, Engineer, or MP by the looks of her but it's possible since everything else in the movie was screwed up.

The 10th Mountain Division does no consist entirely of just infantry surely you must be aware that any military unit consists of numerous people performing numerous duties many that are equally dangerous as infantry many that both men and women perform.

It appeared by your statement that you felt that a woman being portrayed as any form of combatant was in error or undesirable.You seem to a bit unaware of what has occurred over the past 10 years in real life in relation to women in the military.Allow me to enlighten you in a modern war zone if you are in country your in combat male or female.

The UCMJ says there ain't no gender restrictions when you're fighting mythical creatures or aliens.

I know that it's not entirely just infantry...

I don't think it's undesirable for women to fight. I am aware of how their role has changed over the years.

I honestly don't care what your gender is if you're fighting for your country. I don't think it matters.

It just seemed very out of place in this movie if that makes sense.

I think that you're a bit confused there Red. In Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, this is the training mission...

"Aim down your sights!"

"Always aim down your sights!"

"To aim down your sights..."

"Quickly, aim down your sights!"

"Ramirez, show these Afghans how to aim down their sights!"

"Ramirez, to liberate America, you have to aim down your sights!"

"Quickly Ramirez! You have to aim down your sights if you want your family to live!"

The moment you step into the thick of it, US soldiers start charging the enemy positions like Tropic Thunder.
