Just wondering if anyone has ever seen the movie "All mine to give".It was made in 1957 but the story takes place in the 1860's.If you like older movies that make you laugh,cry and think then check it out:).

I'm biased in that for me "ZULU" was one of the best. It made Michael Caine a star. Also because of 'the local welsh connection', it is commemorated back home in Ferndale, Rhondda. Did you know that the cattle used in the film was given to the Zulus after the film was finished so that Stanley Baker and the management team could get round the apartheid laws regarding wages for the Zulus - FACT!
There were many epic films that I liked and the list is endless so I won't bore you all with them.

Always liked Rambo and we hear of John's father in the 4th film from 2008.

In Rambo First Blood in 1982 John Rambo is by then an ex army Vietnam vet drifter, a hobo looking for old army mates, so we were left to assume he had nothing and no one as his old colonel Trautman said "he is the closest thing to family John has left" yet in the last Rambo in 2008 John mentions his father may still be alive and right at the end he goes to his father R Rambo's horse ranch in Arizona. I think John probably was estranged from his father for several decades since perhaps before the Vietnam war and in First Blood Trautman probably meant he was the closest thing to family John has that he has contact with. I think in First Blood John probably would rather remain a drifter and hobo rather than get back in touch with his dad again after the Vietnam War. In Rambo 4 John says his dad may still be alive and by then John was 60 so his father must have been 80 odd. And that may have made him think he is still a son rather than the drifter he had been since 1970ish.
