 RUPERT PENRY JONES TO LEAD WORLD WAR II ADVENTURE
Two war films for you today! First up Rupert Penry Jones, Jason Flemyng in PEGASUS BRIDGE.

BRIDGE. The men who captured and held these objectives were led by two very different young leaders. Major John Howard led the Infantry who managed to land their gliders a stone's throw from the bridge and Colonel Geoffrey Pine Coffin (Rupert Penry Jones) led the men of the 7th Parachute Battalion who occupied the surrounding ground and held off the German counter attacks.

  1. Both films for Jason to put on his watch list. Winter will be here before we know it, so he'll be holed up in the living room hogging the tv until spring rolls back around.

    1. sounds like he has a good winter plan! I'm a bit scared from the upcoming season, nothing good on the horizon when it comes to new projects. Vanity Fair that just started the season is shitty as shitty gets.

    2. That's not good to hear about Vanity Fair. I'm okay with nothing great on the horizon. It will give me a little time to catch up on my every growing list of shows and movies that I desperately need to catch up on.

    3. yes, it is visually the ugliest series I've seen in my life. They opted for natural lighting which gives it such a ghastly dull funeral home feel.

  2. War movies do not excite me, I'm afraid, although there are many that I've enjoyed. Give me some scifi, Dezzie!

  4. "Pegasus Bridge" sounds good! So does the Russian one, but I doubt we would ever see it in the West.

    1. maybe they sometimes air Russian flicks on Netflix. We sometimes get them in our cinemas, but not often enough. You can always find them, though, around the net.
