    Come on now, clearly Newport Red knows more about navigating Afghani terrain while being chased by the Taliban than Navy SEALs.

    So, by the responses, they had no chance and it was essentially a SEAL snuff film.

    I know it is based off a best seller and I did not read it. I'll end by saying the movie must have been a terrible adaption of the book.

    The book was good and the film was with it for the most part, with the exception of a couple embellishments. Just a word to the wise for anyone wanting to read it. Luttrell is fairly far right on the political spectrum, and I don't really have a problem with that myself, but at times it seemed like his political viewpoints were pretty obvious. I didn't have an issue with it, but some might. Also, there's a reason he was a SEAL and not a writer. It's a compelling story and well worth reading though.

    2013 was a big year for the summer coming-of-age indie flick. I enjoyed The Kings of Summer, but the gold standard was The Way Way Back...

    I loved The Way Way Back (I mean Sam Rockwell certainly should have been nominated for some awards) but I think I like 'Kings' a little more. I did just see it so its still fresh.

    "The Way Way Back" is great; Sam Rockwell was basically Bill Murray from "Meatballs", only funnier. I'll have to check out "Kings of Summer" now.

    Unusual to have him playing the same part in two movies ('The Social Network' being the other.)
