Was not really impressed with the movie. Great series though but I thought is was a let down.

Stack It Deep!
Never followed the series much
DVRed the move and liked it
Never followed the series, but thought the movie was worth watching.
What the fuck is it wu? Sweegen cocksuckers! Cocksuckers sweegen!!!
FWIW- I'm watching "Hostiles" on Netflix. Shaping up to be a REAL good one. Christian Bale plays a jaded, angst-ridden Army CPT transporting a captured dying Apache Chief(Wes Studi) back to his native land as a final assignment before retiring. As usual Bale's knocking it out of the park.
Just watched "The Duel" with Woody Harrelson too. Also really good.
I guess it's shaping up to be a Western type move day today, gents. Any suggestions(other than Deadwood obviously)?

Tried to watch the series but could not get past the out of era use of swear words, just made it seem silly in the end.
"odio vitae semper dissolubilis"
"Ludo mentis sciem"
"Senecta aetas viresque, atque perfidium expugnat"
"sic semper purgamentus Yugo kalashnikov! Tempus orbem ad excoquam eorum et dimittetur eis!"
Out of era? What kinda swear words did they use back then?
The producers themselves state that the extensive use of profanity in the series was purposely for dramatic effect and not historically accurate. From what I've researched, which isn't a hole fucking Hell of a goddamn lot, Americans over the generations did not swear nearly as much as movies tend to portray. It seems that we swear these days MUCH more so than any period before us, and swear words of a sexual nature are a newer phenomenon in general. Swear words back in the 1800's were more religion based.
I had the absolute honor to meet Babe Hefron and "Wild" Bill Guarnere("Band of Brothers") once at a veteran reunion in Holland. May they rest in peace. We actually hung out for a few minutes and chatted about several things. Family, America, Holland, soldiering, etc. At one point in the conversation Mr. Hefron noted that people in general and soldier's in particular back in the 40's did not use anywhere near the profanity that films would lead one to believe. I realize a couple of WW2 vets are not cowboys of the mid/late 1800's but it gives you an idea of how American English has changed substantially over the decades.
I think like many things, it depends. My paternal grandfather is from that generation and he still swears like that. I wasn't in the habit of it til I worked with a crusty retired E-7... Now it's kinda hard to drop!
