Six

I’ve always loved action packed war movies. My all time favorite is Saving Private Ryan. There are so many incredible ones out there from Platoon, Jarhead, Pearl Harbor, Good Morning, Vietnam and I could go on and on. After all, many men in my family have fought for this land of the free that I call home. Why wouldn’t I be obsessed with war movies right?

I stumbled upon this new drama series Six on the history channel the other day. Once I saw the first episode I had to stay up half the night to watch all five on demand. I’m a huge fan of Walton Goggins. I think he looks the best when he’s scruffy like in the photo below. I mean this guy has played a transgender escort on SOA, to landing the role Billy Crash in the Quentin Tarantino film Django and playing the sociopathic character Lee Russell in the comedy Vice Principals. This guy……he can do it ALL.

Six is the story of six navy seals on a very complicated mission with heavy combat and attempting to apprehend terrorists. I don’t want to give too much of it away. This is based on true events and the acting is superb. The personal stories of each seal is twisting, binding, and keeps you wanting more. The brotherhood of these men is sensational. Whether they’re fighting each other or fighting for their country they stick together no matter what.

If you’ve not already seen the show, I suggest giving it a try. See the preview below…

    Sounds interesting. I’ve been watching a really bizarre mixture of things recently – often while holed up in hotels with work. The OA was very good.

      The OA was incredible…..thoughts on the ending? Or have you got to the end? Brought chills up my spine.

    I’m psyched you wrote about this, psyched you are a family of patriots, and it’s super hot to hear a woman who says she loved war movies. I love We were soldiers guns of navarone and if you don’t mind older movies you HAVE to see my favorite movie all time The Longest Day. That’s an order. Hamburger Hill is also stellar

    I’ll probably never get to see this (limited TV signals etc). Two which are overlooked these days for grit and controversy are ‘Porkchop Hill’ (Korea) and our own UK’s ‘Dunkirk’ made in the 1950s with some mild harsh language, (but heavy for those days) and a great deal of tragedy and not heroic deaths. For spectacle and a good orchestra score in 1970 we made ‘Battle of Britain’.

    This is definitely not my genre, but I did watch American Sniper. Did you see that movie? It changed my perspective about a lot of things, including what “war” is.
