Lord of War.

Good flick. And they actually got the guns right - there was the Beretta with the missing guide rod assembly and the Ukranian warehouse full of vz.58s...oh, and the AR-15A2 lying on top of a pile of arms in 1983 Lebanon...ok, that's probably the extent of it. The "Navy" trigger group on Ethan Hawke's MP5k seemed a bit off for the late 80s, but at least it wasn't an MP5k-PDW... The flick itself was surprisingly well-balanced...other than certain end users, they didn't go out of their way to vilify anyone, and just let things unfold. How refreshing.

Is it just me, or is the "unskippable" FBI track on DVDs being filled with more crap? I really don't want to five production companies worth of labels and the "don't sue us for anything anyone says in the commentary track" disclaimer. Anime is the worst...I have to leave the room for five minutes, make a pot of tea or whatever, and come back.
