LOL, that sounds pretty funny. I would like to know the name of that so I can watch it. I want to see him eat the Country Captain Chicken and then run into the volcano to get rid of the nasty taste.

Not a movie but a game: in VIETCONG you have MCIs on a shelf in your personal bunker-they´re quite accurate compared to the pictures here. Sadly we don´t see Steve Hawkins(main character) eat one of them. There´s only a note in his diary that the kitchen at SF camp Nui Pek is awful, and Plei Ku was alot better. :lol:

I played that game but did not like it. It was too hard for me. I play Joint Operations: Escalation. In fact I just got done playing with some friends a bit ago. Spent about three hours playing. Ever play that game DemolitionMan?

Well, you should buy a copy and play it my good man. kman and I were on a squad together that I started awhile back. It was the OMEGA MEN SQUAD. kman, perhaps we can start up an MRE SQUAD. We can call it -MRE-

KMAN-MRE-, DIRTYDAVE-MRE- LOL!

I have seen MRE´s in
Several Stargate episodes
Episode 7 or 8 of S. Sielbergs "Taken" and
The 3 Kings with G. Clooney. even with a HUGE factual error :
The movie takes place right after operation destert storm, Clooney is distributing MRE´s to the starving iraqies. They are light brown , but should be dark brown !

Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but I remembered I had mentioned the MCI's in Vietcong, and I recently came across the survival game "The Long Dark", in which you can also find MREs. I attached some screenshots. The latter two screenshots show an earlier version of the MRE in-game, you may notice a certain symbol on it. The German translation is 100% spot-on, whoever translated that did a hell of a good job!
