Heartbreak Ridge (Warner Bros. 1986)
Great conservative anti-commie movie here folks! If you haven't seen this one you've been missing out! And wouldn't ya' know it? It's on National Review's list of conservative movies!
Here is the review from James G. Lakely, managing editor of InfoTech & Telecom News at the Heartland Institute.
Clint Eastwood’s foul-mouthed Marine sergeant Tom Highway makes quick work of kicking Communist Cubans out of Grenada. And, boy, does “Gunny” hate Commies. Not only does he kill quite a few, he also refuses a bribe of a Cuban cigar, saying: “Get that contraband stogie out of my face before I shove it so far up you’re a** you’ll have to set fire to your nose to light it.” A welcome glorification of Reagan’s decision to liberate Grenada in 1983, the film also notes how after a tie in Korea and a loss in Vietnam, America can finally celebrate a military victory. Eastwood, the old war horse, walks off into retirement pleased that he’s not “0–1–1 anymore.” Semper Fi. Oo-rah!
Here is the trailer!
