Just love my war films. Waited a long time to see a film about war on par with Saving Private Ryan and it did not disappoint. Easily one of the top 10 films I've ever seen too.

I wouldn't dare list other war films that I've enjoyed. Think TIMDOT would have a field day listing historical inaccuracies if I included films like Inglourious Basterds and Hacksaw Ridge.

The plane battles are filmed with real planes unlike the CGI ones made for Fury, so don't be too disappointed if you're expecting exaggerated Hollywood type battles like RickRude was.

Kedi. Nice Turkish docu film about cats. Worth a watch if you're a lover of felines. Out in independent cinemas now.

Baby Driver. Good Monday night flick. Bit ridiculous at times but fortunately the music element of the movie kept me interested. I'd pick High Fidelity over a fast & furious type movie. This was a mix quite well done mind. 7/10

Icarus . Great doc about the guy who helped Putin dope every single russian athlete at the Sochi games and avoid detection, he spoke out his colleagues were murdered and he now lives a secret life under witness protection in the US.

Seconded. Incredible doc.

If the above interests, listen to Joe Rogans podcast with Victor Conte from a few years back. Victor helped athletes dope (got jailed for it) and tells a shitload of stories and realities on it.

I listened to the Rogan podcast with Conte, thought it was alright, although he seemed sour about the Jamaican athletes. His stories about Prison were jokes though.

Bails78 - Sour about the Jamaicans or speaking the truth? Most of Bolts training partners & coaches have been done for doping and the testing records over their are insignificant to say the least.

Stayed with me for days. The single take thing gives it a really amazing sense of time. Exhausting but incredible.
