    Ol Marky Mark is good in pretty much everything, so I'll probably get around to seeing this at some point.

    Probably the most powerful movie I've ever seen, and affected me very personally because of my experience with getting wounded, and losing close friends. The book was incredible, and the movie was about 80% of that. The movie isn't as accurate as the book, because it was shortened for obvious reasons, and there are a bunch of inconsistencies, but not enough that make the movie anything less than intense. Luttrell is in the movie as an extra, and I'll link you to an interview he did recently that is a MUST watch. If you saw the movie, read the book. You'll say WOW all over again. If you do some looking online you'll find the Taliban video that those F'ers shot from their side during the firefight and it confirms the loss of Murphy and Deitz. It'll piss you off though, so be warned before you view it.

    The guy that saved Luttrell's life, and is still hunted by the Taliban to this day:
