I like Troma, though. Has anyone seen this thing?

Got a copy of the 1997 director's cut DVD for this fantastic film. Watched the original film many years ago and it instantly became one of my top 10 favorite submarine films of all-time, and also became one of my top 10 all-time favorite war films. The director's cut adds 60 minutes to the original film and makes it even more compelling.


Das Boot (Director's Cut) (1997)

^Classic. How does one have a top 10 Submarine Films list? Seems niche. What are your other nine, if you don't mind me asking?

Oh man, forgot about Troma films.
So many new ones I haven't seen, it's time to start binging.

My list is based on the ones I've seen so far over the years (probably around 50 or so) and most of the ones I've seen were made after the 1940's.

Going by year of release...

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954)
On the Beach (1957)
The Enemy Below (1957)
Run Silent, Run Deep (1958)
Torpedo Run (1958)
Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961)
Submarine X-1 (1969)
Murphy's War (1971)
Das Boot (1981)
The Hunt for Red October (1990)

Just the 10 most memorable ones at the moment.

Watched Whiplash last night. I have to agree with everyone that said it was a fantastic movie. The amount of emotion conveyed in the movie with subtlety was amazing. I literally found myself tearing up at times and had no explanation as to why. I really feel both actors should have both been nominated for best supporting actor nods as both were dual stars of the movie. I can't say enough about how amazing this movie was. The way in which it was filmed really seemed to draw you in. The scene at the end was one of the most astounding endings of a movie in recent and late history.

I'll be purchasing it soon, because i'd really like to watch it again and add it to my collection. Paul Reiser was really good also as the consumate good dad. What an amazing experience it was to watch this. When people have said Tour De Force in the past I always felt people were bull****ting themselves, but now I understand.

I'm really looking forward to it. Speaking of drums and percussion:

Just added this to my Netflix queue.
