: I saw a trailer about a sniper movie recently.
: It was about Stalingrad I believe, the
ledgendary duel that took place between a Russian
: and his German counterpart....
: Ed Harris played the Nazi, I think..
: It's a true story, though I wonder how bad
and/or "dramatic" it will be once Hollywood get's
: with it...
: I saw the movie poster in the lobby too, and
the bolt is on the left side of the reciever......
: Considering how many Russian left-handed, bolt
action, sniper's rifles were made during WWII,
: take this to be a bad sign.
: It costs them just as much to do something
right as it does to do it wrong....
: (Sometimes MORE- Gladiator comes to mind.....)
: Yet they still usually blow it.
t the sniper? It's called something
: : : or
: : : : other "Gate". Have you seen the red
: : : : they show during the previews? I was
: : thinking:
: : : : Those fucking bastards, they better've
: : got
: : : : that from me. But it looks like a
: : : movie.
: : : : There's nothing like a good sniper movie.
: : : think
: : : : it's going to be good.
: : Nope, haven't seen any previews. I've faced
: : fact that Hollywood probably isn't going to
: : make a good sniper-oriented flick. As a
: : of sorts of military tactics and an amateur
: : historian(The USMC's Surveillance/ Target-
: : Aquisition scout-snipers arguably the world's
: : best), I'm always disappointed with Hollywood
: : portrayals of snipers, with a few exceptions.
: : sniping scenes in A Thin Red Line were fairly
: : accurately portrayed, among a couple
: : other "better" war films(Full Metal Jacket,
: : etc.). But that movie Sniper(I think that was
: : title...with Tom Berringer) was a joke. The
: : ghillie suit was a disaster, the rifle was
: : wrong, facts such as snipers always go out as
: : man team, etc. were ignored, etc. Flicks like
: : that are made for the uninformed civilian
: : that'll buy anything. I'll keep my eyes open
: : that preview, though. If you remember or come
: : across the full title of the movie, post it.
: : USMC STA SS
: : One shot- One kill
: : The skill to kill
: : Invisible souls leave .308 holes
: : Don't bother running- you'll only die tired
: : "...I used to go shooting with Gunny
: : Don't mess with me- I'm a voodoobilly man..."
