    Movie suggestions?

    My wife and girls are leaving me for the weekend while I spend the days at football camp. Being the only male in the house I don't get to watch "my kind" of movies anymore. Have there been any good war-type movies in the last 4 years that are worth watching? THose or just guy-movies in general? With a DVR I never see commercials so I have no idea what has been out.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    As far as movies that you'd never be able to watch with the wife and kids around, I liked Inglourious Basterds.

    I really liked The Hurt Locker. Good action, and really shows the emotional toll our guys are going through in Iraq.

    Great call. I've been wanting to see that. I think I can still get it at redbox too.

    She's out of my league

    I thought it was pretty funny. It's like a typical Apatow movie really

    If you don't watch Entourage see if you can get your hand on some of that. Good series.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I would have to disagree. If anything, it made our troops look like incompetent boobs.
