"Olympus has fallen..."

I and the wife went to a movie last night with some friends...she wanted to see "Olympus has fallen".  I was kinda surprised since this is a serious shootemup movie.  My impression was that it was a good movie and a human side to the movie about redemption and such movies do appeal to me.  Watching the troops being shot up, even though it was a movie was a bit difficult.  It bothered me since the scenario depicted in the movie is plausible, that is what made it more realistic...and disturbing.

    There was one movie that I had a real hard time seeing for many years after the event was "Black Hawk Down."  And there were several reasons for this.  One is that they wore the same equipment and weapons like I did when I was in the Gulf. second is that my brother was there with 10th mountain at the time.  3rd is that it could have been me there if situation was a little different.
