Here’s a clip from 2012’s “Last Ounce of Courage”:
- This movie was actually released in theaters. It grossed $3.3MM on a $1.2MM budget.
- Rotten Tomatoes reported that 0% of critics gave the film positive reviews based on 15 reviews as of March 2013, with an average score of 2.5 out of 10.
- Robert Abele of the Los Angeles Times said of the film, “The patriot-packaged ‘Last Ounce of Courage’ has been made with the conviction of true zealots, but also the competence of amateurs.”
- Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee took part in a telemarketing campaign to promote the film that made over four million robocalls. This was considered to be a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, as it was in the guise of a political survey, and a class-action lawsuit was later filed. AIC Communications, the company involved with the campaign on behalf of Veritas Entertainment, had to pay $32,424,930 in damages.
- All the actors look as-if they were dipped in plastic.
- Who reframed the camera on the dead soldier’s face after the explosion?
- How did they get the video of the soldiers dying? Did the military provide it? That doesn’t seem like something it’d do.
- When the soldier says, “We fight so we can all enjoy our freedom back at home”, the camera cuts to a guy in a jail cell.
- Is the guy in the jail cell watching all this on a live stream?

The Alien movies have a lot of bad ass scenes where Sigourney Weaver carries around a flamethrower like a boss.
Here she is testing it out for one of the first times.
The use of the Flame Thrower in Alien began something of a tradition in the Alien franchise of flamethrower weaponry featuring in the films — Aliens would prominently feature the M240 Incinerator Unit, Alien Resurrection would feature the Draco Double Burner and Prometheus would also feature a flamethrower. Despite not featuring flamethrowers, the prisoners in Alien3 also used fire as a weapon against the Dragon.
