Re: Submarine Movies
Das Boot is probably the most gritty and accurate sub movie made, but damn it's boring.
The Hunt for Red October was no where near good as the book, but few movies are. I think my view of the movie might have been flavored by the book (which I read about 900 times, almost as many as Red Storm Rising, which I virtually memorized) so it helped offset the dreck that is Alec Baldwin. Sean Conery didn't hurt either.
U571 was an action movie that just happened to have a sub in it. Harvey Kitel's performance is about the only thing that keeps it counting as a "sub movie".
There was a John Wayne WWII sub movie that while being a John Wayne movie was so-so. Can't recall the title, however.
a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.
I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
