Thread: Band of Brothers

  1. #1

    Default Band of Brothers

    One of my favourite mini-series ever. The pacific wasn't as good.

    Who else is a fan?

    ps. if you haven't watched it you should.

    Player is the hero Ausbb deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a single guardian, a watchful protector.

    Yeah, it's brilliant. I did enjoy the Pacific but it was nowhere near as good.
    Band of Brothers is based on a book of the same name written by Steven Ambrose, you should read it I you haven't already. His other books, Citizen Soldiers and D-Day are also awesome.

    i think it will be a while to make another one.

    There is one set in modern day warfare that is very similar to band of brothers what ive head, i just forget the name.

    Awesome series. Probably one of favourite ever. Managed to borrow the DVD's about 8 years ago from a friend and watched the whole lot in 2 days when I had my appendix out.
    Enemy at the Gates is another good one.
    I agree The Pacific was a letdown.
    Aint no way but the hard way!

    It's also brilliant. If you like war movies and the like, especially stuff from the grunts perspective then you'll enjoy it.
