The Outpost (Netflix streaming):
An Amercian outpost in a Kush mountains valley is under constant attack by the Taliban

 

Ok, WHO IN THE HELL THOUGHT A OUTPOST IN A HOSTILE MOUNTAIN VALLEY WAS A GOOD IDEA? Ok, calming down, but seriously, are kindergarteners running that op?

The movie itself was good. Some real soldiers did participate in the movie, some playing themselves. From what I’ve read, it’s even more accurate than the book it’s based on. It’s…very real, in light-hearted moments and dark, gruesome moments. Rather intense overall, it’s not a movie you just want to pop in so you can watch something for a couple hours.
