    I saw it last month. Thirty years and you still remember the details? Impressive. You nailed it with Ward Bond. I don't recall the cowboy garb, just the gangster duds. Then again I was drifting off on paper work will trying to retain an interest in it. At the end Hitler was a whimpering fool.

    Ahh, many thanks! No, I thinik I was wrong on the clothing worn. I think it probably was Gangster duds. I also remember that they seem to be hiding underground and that they came and went through a small hatchway? Anyway, I remember it as good wartime propaganda entertainment.

    I always did like Ward Bond. Mostly when I saw him in something, he was always in Western duds or military uniform of somekind.

    The link does not work for me. Do they have on their list the theme music from: The Final Countdown? I always thought that was a cool theme.

    Hi Jeff, thanks. I finally could access part of one page using their unfiltered computer but I still can't "see" all yet. I'll explain in the PM. I appreciate that but, the library computers have high security settings (so I have been told) which would mean I can't listen to any of them and is why I can't access them here. I appreciate your wanting to help ;-))

    PM sent on another matter--even Otto know's nothing about what I sent to you ;-))

    OH jeez.

    S.S. Doomtrooper - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    S.S. Doomtrooper is a 2006 made-for-TV science fiction movie starring Corin Nemec, in which a mutated Nazi supersoldier (which is blue, has glowing veins, can generate electrical radiation as a weapon, has greatly enhanced strength and size, and is a mindless monster) fights against Allied troops during World War II.

    thats just looking to be bad

    I watched it.. and I was laughing at the whole thing!



    It is just really really cheesy and it was a big ol monster that looked like a computer game with real people..

    Aw Come on, It is terrible. I understand people have an emotional attachment to a film that they saw as a youngster but unlike Kellys Heroes it was not tongue in cheek. at least Kellys Heroes knew it wasnt serious.

    At least in Kelly's Heroes I saw the first decently vizmodded tank ever. Of course the film was crap, just put Telly Savalas in any film and it will be immeadiately converted to crap!

    He was by far the worst Blofeld Ever in James Bond films. In Kellys Heroes, donald Sutherland makes up for him as does the Title Track to the Film "Burning Bridges". great song!

    I saw SS Doomstrooper when the scifi channel replayed it. I struggeled through about half the movie-then decided to erase from my memory of-watching part of that film by popping on the DvD player and watching some episodes of Hogan's Heroes.

    Here in Finland they sell a 12 movie DVD-box called "Wardog". I don't know how they did it, but somehow some of the worst WWII movies ever made are part of that collection. For example, the earlier mentioned Wheels of Terror / The Misfit Brigade. What a load of effin' crap. And I thought you simply can't make a bad movie based on Sven Hassel's novels. Sadly, I was wrong. Luckily I didn't have to pay a cent for that box. But to be honest, it had a couple of quite decent movies, too.

    Another "not so good" Wardog-movies are:
    -
    Return from the River Kwai
    -
    Triple Cross
    -
    Flying Leathernecks
    - The Last Drop

    Also these brainfarts need to be mentioned (not included into that DVD-box, though):
    - Captain Corelli's Mandolin
    - Yanks
    - Empire of the Sun
    - Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence

    And every piece of s*it with words "nazi", "death" or "terror" in their titles.

    I watched the later half of the Dirty Dozen, starting at the Last Supper scene. I realize that is pure fiction but I had never really watched to see just how bad it was. What got my attention was the scene where they are jumping into Normandy. They throw out the equipment packs out then it is a good 5 seconds or more before someone (I think it was Reisman/Lee Marvin) stood in the door and even began to make a show of possibly exiting the aircraft. At cruising speed of 160mph for the C47, that's 237ft/sec for 5 seconds, almost 1200 feet/400 yds to the second pack the aircraft travels before the first man could exit the aircraft. The first pack would be even further away. Jump speeds for the C-47 may be slower, but still, having to hump a 1000 yards or more in the dark to find a two packs and assuming they drifted more because they weighed less, how easy would it be. After this scene I starting watching and there was just so many lame scenes and uniform problems with the Germans.

    Please note, I'm not rating this movie as the worst, there is always Fireball Forward.
