Historical Films vs History

I'm a big fan of any sort of historical movie, ones that are pretty faithful, and those that aren't, but which are entertaining.  And most veterans I've talked to feel the same way.  A buddy of mine was one of the main characters in "Generation Kill" so I always get to talking to him about what they got right, and what they got wrong.

Well, turns out that there's a guy on YouTube who does a phenomenal job of looking at films and their historical accuracy.  Far better than I could ever do.

So, as I get ready to head on a short vacation (playing in a golf tournament with a MOH recipient), I wanted to share some of these with you.  Hopefully you like the "History Buffs" guy as much as I do.
