It's been a while since I've seen it, but wasn't there a part towards the beginning of Enemy at the Gates where a Russian Commissar or whatever summarily executes some dudes with an SMG when they start to retreat?

I could be thinking of another movie.

Yeah, I saw this a few weeks ago. After they got off the boat (where another couple of dudes jumped into the Volga and got shot for it) and were issued their Mosins in alternating fashion, a group retreated and got lit up slow-mo style by a PPSh (I think).

Good: In Bruges actually shows that getting shot by a blank at close range will actually do more than make noise.

Eirik: I can't see! I can't see!

I love that movie way more than I should. Probably my favorite movie in the last half-decade, and the action/gun portions weren't terrible considering it was written/acted by a bunch of Irish and British folks. Hell, Harry even pauses and lines up a longish shot at the end of the movie!

One more quote because I love it so and it's my favorite scene:

Ray: You from America?
Jimmy: Yeah. Don't hold it against me.
Ray: Well, that's for me to decide, isn't it?
Ray: [to Denise] You from America too?

I just watched The Road for the first time yesterday and I haven't read the book. That was an outstanding movie. Great story and very "human" if I can quote it as such. From a firearms perspective, the father really did take care of his ammo. We'll leave it at that for fear of spoiling anything.

I'm watching Hot Fuzz right now again on account of our previous TFR conversation/debate. Danny (Nick Frost) ND'd a guy at an air rifle range. I forgot all about that. I love this loving movie.

My dreams are normally pretty boring and commonplace. But not on Chantix. If you're not a smoker, start so you can take Chantix to quit. I had the most hosed up and vivid dreams on this stuff. I got into a fist fight with a blue whale. In the open ocean, I jumped out of a boat and swam under the whale and I punched the poo poo out of it's mouth, KOing the poor thing. I also kicked down Puff Daddy's door as he was recording some song and I beat the poo poo out of him as the recording kept going. I then released the beating as a single to great critical acclaim. I don't have any malice towards blue whales, but that Puff Daddy beating, well that was awfully cathartic.

Is anyone watching Boardwalk Empire? I'd think last night's episode would have been orgasmic for a lot of us here. There was a character who was a sniper in WWI. He's so severely disfigured that he wears this half-face mask attached to his glasses, complete with fake mustache. It was brutal and sad and awesome. Later he notices that another character is carrying and asks him what it is. He tells him it's a 1903 Colt. Sniper guy then rattles off the guns he owns -- a shitload of them --. He asks the guy he's with (a gangster) what he uses the 1903 for and he answers, "What do you think?" Sniper guy replies, "To kill people? It's good for that."

Sniper Guy loving owned that episode. I had no idea where they were going in the diner scene. He said, IIRC, he was rocking a 1903, Webley 454, 1914 Mauser ("very small") and an "Enfield, 30-06, telescoping sight. Accurate to 700 yards. Eeegh." I'm sure I'm missing one or two, but rocking a M1917 and a M1903/M1908 (didn't specify), he's a half faced man of sophistication .

Also, in regards to The Walking Dead, that was loving outstanding. I'm not much a comic reader (the two series I've read and am reading respectively is "Preacher" and "The Boys." Ennis makes me giggle ), so I'll be taking cues from you guys who have read the books. I know Darabont is on record as to be taking "liberties" with the source material.

I wasn't really a big fan of Inglourious Basterds either, which I found a bit surprising since all my buddies loved it and our tastes generally agree with each other. And I usually like Tarantino's stuff, but something just didn't come together for me on it. I did like Pitt's goofy-rear end Southerner, and I thought Waltz was great, but that's about it. Oh, that and the assault on the two bodyguards outside the box seats was pretty cool.

So what's the rub? You like Pitt and Waltz (the two leads), you like Tarantino (a dialogue heavy, attention junkie who made good on that promise) and there was some gun play. This isn't because I have a pair of German Shepards named Hugo Stiglitz and Bridget Von Hammarsmark, but I can't see what else you're looking for in that movie. Where's your beef?

The male we got a few weeks before the female and I started him off in German, so his basic commands he responds to in German and English.

Will Smith, directed by Steven Speilberg, or Josh Brolin directed by Spike Lee would (spoilers about the original) watch a brother/sister pair getting busy, and get hypnotized into loving his daughter, hypnotized again into forgetting the lady he loves is the daughter he hosed?.
