I know we have a list somewhere...

According to IMDB, it was shot in the UK, and it doesn't seem like there's a shortage there. Even the Dirty Dozen sequel, a TV movie, had them. I'm not saying there's enough to equip a battalion of extras, but they're around. And as I said, someone does make brand new replicas.

We need to make more WWII movies in the UK or in Europe where we can get the STG-44s in movies

Or at least use Russian armorers. I don't think I've ever seen more StG-44s than I did in Downfall.

I just watched Uwe Boll's House of the Dead, and it lived up t its reputation of being godawful. The Resident Evil films are Oscar Worthy compared to this piece of shit (and at least the action scenes were good in them, unlike Boll's film).

Why do that to yourself?

Dear God, I haven't seen a Boll movie in forever!

So I could see how bad it was myself rather than just take everyone's word for it.

And Uwe Boll somehow managed to make a shootout scene unenjoyable.

At this point, I think the only reason Boll is still making movies is to troll his haters.

If you're still a glutton for punishment, the 1968 Tunnel Rats page is incomplete. I've decided I'm not going anywhere near a Uwe Boll film.
