Not wearing a helmet or even a cap is my biggest gripe. I have no trouble seeing who the actor is with the helmet on. I still see it is Tom Hanks in Saving Private Ryan. I recognize all of them in A Bridge Too Far.

It drives me crazy when they do take them off. It is constant complaint I have with TV shows like Stargate SG-1. Most of the time they aren't even wearing a cap. Vic Morrow kept his helmet on in Combat and I could see him just fine. I could see who was who in Black Hawk Down, in Band of Brothers, The Thin Red Line etc..


Can't tell who is who? Nonsense!

Since Winston/John isn't here anymore, I'll have to channel him.
Movies aren't for wargamers.
It's a common complaint in reviews that a bunch of young men in same uniforms, helmets and dirt in their faces are hard too keep track off.

Also SG1 is a reckon team, SG3 is the direct action team and almost always use helmets.
Sg1 does use helmets if they know they are going into a hot situation.

I have been watching some bad war movies – some from a cheap DVD set my wife gave me a couple of years ago – and the bad ones seem to have some things in common.
