#5 That was one of the oddest military movies that's ever been made. It is like part one of a trilogy, but the other two parts are still classified.

I suppose it's an inherent problem to making a distinguished career into a movie--professionals may be in dramatic circumstances, but they retain their professionalism and avoid drama--they are too busy.

In the military, this ends up paradoxically with only small and unimportant things being used for drama; but when push comes to shove, everybody does their job with as little nonsense as possible. Which doesn't lend itself to moviemaking.
