"The Big Red One"

I got this DVD a while ago. I didn't realize this was the child birthing in a tank movie I saw bits of back in the '80s. So the version I got was the movies with bits added back. It's strange other than this movie starting out at the end of WW1 and landing in Africa it was basically "Band Of Brothers". The commentary was very informative.

    Great old movie Lee Marvin was a good actor

    Even got shot in the but in his military years serving lol

    I have watched that many times over the years

    Just a few weeks ago l was debating on what to watch one night it was being considered again

    With countless aps and endless choices i find my self spending a half hour or more just surfing and scanning Thousands of shows

    On the not sleeping late-nights I have

    amazing choices by year or even what type of movie

    Any thing from silent movies to latest

    Long gone are the two Channel choice TV stations and watch what ever was on

    The commentary did mention Lee was shot and in the movie it showed how he was shot but didn't mention where he was shot. I thought back but now I know the butt. No apps for me I have to rely on my squirrel mind where I put the nut (DVD). Like I was trying to locate "The Great" season 1 (it's about Katherine the Great) I just finished season 2 and I wanted to put them together. I knew I had them in the TV category in Historic section. Couldn't find it. I split the category in two pre-1900 and post 1900 and I put crap on top of the milk crate so the pre-1900 was hidden. I really need more wire racks stands to get the piles off the floor.

    I seen Das and it's okay. Don't get me wrong I like sub movies. It's as close to space travel as we'll get to. I'll see about "Cross Of Iron".
