    I saw the other thread "The American" by Sucklead, and didn't want to hijack his thread. But, if you want to see a good movie that is kind of in that same genre - military-type stuff...see "The Messenger" with Woody Harrelson and Ben Foster, which was released in 2009.

    It was great, but didn't get much notariety. It came out last year and is about the men who deliver the sad, sad news to families when a soldier is killed.

    I've read a lot of criticism about the film not being real, though others have said it is. Either way, I enjoyed it all the same. It can be a tear jerker at some parts, happy and funny at others.
