Watched "The Siege of Jadotville" last night.

It was available on Netflix.

 

Based on a true story where about 155 to 158 Irish light infantry had to fight off thousands of Katanga Gendarmerie troops including foreign (mainly Belgium and France) mercenaries.

The Katanga dudes even had a Fouga Magister and the Irish had to fight them off for six days until they ran out of ammo to shoot. Only then they surrendered. After a month in prison they were released and back home being branded as cowards for surrendering. In 2007 they finally got appreciation for their actions.

None of the Irish soldiers died during the conflict, while the enemy had 300 dead and up to 1000 wounded.

 

I enjoyed watching that movie.

class film.

 

Monsters Dark sector- availabvle on netflix.

 

the premise sounds like a £2 straight to the bargain bin kind of film, but its not.

not long after the present, a deep space probe sent to search for life in the solar system crashes in the middle east on its return. was carrying some sort of bacteria thing tha rapidly evolves into alien life forms. team of us troops has a shitty time finding lost troops out in the desert, lots of stress/psychological stuff, amazing camera work and environments. aliens arent cheesy and its barely sci fi. good watch.

Netflix- the expanse

 

massively enjoying this. think firefly but a little more serious.

 

 

In the future, mankind is split between those on earth, those on mars, and those in between 'the belters' who occupy a string of space stations (big enough to hold hunderds or more in most cases), and asteroid colonies/mines owned either privately, or by the earth or mars governments.

 

story follows a police detective on one station, and 5 crew members whom survived a mining ship destruction that seems to be caught up in some subterfuge and plot/ conspiracy.

 

basically, political/military tensions between earth and mars, there are blooming political activists groups growing among the belters, and some terrorist factions, sort of IRA-ish in a way, vying for Independence

 

The sci fi behind it is really enjoyable, ships pull hard g force's and take days to complete some manouvres, people can survive brief void exposure, those born/ living on asteroids and cheap stations without much gravity are taller and longer limbed with brittle bones.

 

also, as i ve writing this, the guy who voices Adam jensen from deus ex has just appeared as a character so theres that.

Watched War Dogs yesterday - highly recommend. It's about how a pair of international arm dealers got started and follows on from there. I thought it was really funny. Based on a true story, too.

@Anthony: Youtube links with a word as to why they're good/bad would actually be relevant.  Otherwise it's just pointless forum spam.
