The Dirty Dozen
Now that's what I call a manly movie. You know you've got a tough cast when Jim Brown might not be the toughest guy in it. I never get tired of the reaction shots, because the director shares my enjoyment of Charles Bronson's steely glare and Donald Sutherland's squirrely twitchiness. I like to pretend that Sutherland's still playing Hawkeye from M*A*S*H -- I could see Hawkeye being arrested at some point. It's a little tricky, what with M*A*S*H being made three years later than The Dirty Dozen (and being set like seven years later), but I think I can make it work. Even though his character in The Dirty Dozen is a borderline idiot.
