The War Movie Thread
I have a keen interest in WW2 and was never taught anything about it in history class. Im mostley interested in the third Reich (not in a i agree with hitler/skin head kinda way) and love watching war films. Just wondered if anyone else enjoys watching WW2 movies, and what your fave's are.
Von Ryan's Express
Where Eagles Dare
Inglourious Basterds (tarantino)
Saints And Soldiers
Saving Private Ryan
Schindler's List (yes it's a hard film to watch, but utterly Brilliant)
Band Of Brothers (if seen the whole thing 4 times and each time it gets better)
but my favourite is The Eagle Has Landed.
I also love war films.Perfect for a Sunday afternoon.
FULL METAL JACKET
SOLDIER OF ORANGE
SAVING PRIVATE RYAN
A BRIDGE TOO FAR
BATTLE OF BRITAIN
CASUALTIES OF WAR
WHERE EAGLES DARE
THE EAGLE HAS LANDED
Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker man.
I'm not a big war movie fan myself, but I love Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket - it's a clear favourite of mine. Some brilliant performances make for a truly unforgettable film experience imo.
another one i forgot is Reach For The Skies, starring the great Kenneth Moore, about the life of RAF pilot Douglas Bader who lost both legs and was given fake ones. absolute classic wartime Drama.
If strictly WWII, then Cross Of Iron is tops, then
Too Late The Hero
Where Eagles Dare
Au Revoir Les Enfants
Hell In The Pacific
The Thin Red Line
Hope And Glory
Does A Matter Of Life And Death count?
"Major Strasser has been shot. Round up the usual suspects."
Where Eagles Dare is definately my all time favourite war movie.
Some of my favourites (not all WWII) include:
The Dirty Dozen
The Great Escape
Full Metal Jacket
The Deer Hunter
The Bridge On The River Kwai
The Guns Of Navarone
