finally broke down and watched "black hawk down" last night. war movies are a strange genre, and they always make me cry. after getting past the propaganda (growing up in south america taught me to be very wary of US military operations) i actually enjoyed the movie. i am totally in love with helicopters. one day i will learn to fly for real, but in the meantime i wish flight sims had the visual quality and sense of movement of film. the shots of those choppers flying over the beach were beautiful. and the grace with which they crash is astounding (okay, probably not according to the people killed...) all in all, they are sweet machines. (and let's not forget to thank ridley scott for making sure that those soldiers were so damn good looking...)
