Every year for Christmas I make my dad a movie gift basket. It has popcorn, soda, candy and of course movies. There is two tings that will always be a hit with my dad comedy and War/History movies.
This year I am going the History route and putting War Pigs and The Simon Wiesenthal Collection into his basket.
War Pigs Directed by Ryan Little, 2015
Disgraced World War 2 Army Captain Jack Wosick (Luke Goss) is given the opportunity for redemption when asked to lead a rag-tag unit of misfits known as the War Pigs on a secret mission to go behind enemy lines to uncover and capture a Nazi developed Super Weapon the V3, a massive artillery canon that would give the Nazis an insurmountable advantage against the Allies. With the help of Captain Hans Picault (Dolph Lundgren), a German Anti-Nazi serving with the French Foreign Legion and Colonel AJ Redding (Mickey Rourke), a battle hardened WW1 veteran, Jack must train, lead and earn the respect of his new squad to become a functioning reconnaissance unit.
