"The Blue Max." I love the scene where parvenu pilot Stachel/George Peppard asks the other German ace, "You have 18 victories, but three more unconfirmed? So you really have 21!" Willi, the Prussian nobleman and his counterpart, smiles and says patiently, "No. I have 18." There's an entire philosophy of life and world behind the latter remark. One which the rest of the movie (being Hollywood) does its best to sneer at.

The documentary "Holy Hell" came to mind yesterday and so I rewatched it last night.
Pretty good doc about a modern cult. One very interesting point shown is the power of belief (when the members are given "the Knowing").
In the first couple of minutes you meet the ex-members who open up and based on their traits you can easily predict what the revelation at the end will be..
Nevertheless a thing to watch sometime.

Day of the Siege, a Polish flick about the 1683 siege of Vienna, lifted by Jan Sobiewski. Sabaton used clips from the film for their song "Winged Hussars." I'm surprised the EU hasn't banned both.
