I watched Gallipoli again today, with Remembrance Day just around the corner - but what a great movie. I had forgotten how well it showed just how pointless and wasteful the Great War was, especially the Gallipoli campaign. Terrific movie - recommend it to any who haven't seen this yet.
Also watched Slapshot from start to finish, all the way through, for the first time in a very long time - words just don't express how awesome that move is! Paul Newman was the man!
