Last night I watched unbroken..love that movie probably in my top 3 war movies of all time.
What're your favorite war movies?
mine are
1) saving private Ryan
2) Unbroken
3) We were soldiers

They're all kinda... middling, boring films though innit? I mean, how many times can one juxtapose the theme of "war is hell" unto cool-ass action sequences before something starts feeling off about it? Yeah, Spielberg pulled his best, emotionally manipulative chops to get across the whole chaos bit in Ryan, but even then it felt uninspired outside the extremely visceral opening scene. I kinda wished he had gone more brutal with that movie, to Lars von Trier-esque extremes, to make the viewer uncomfortable rooting(justifiedly, in the long haul of course) for american troops getting their war-crime on (shit, I wonder how big a proportion of the audience can differentiate between German and Czech, was it?, after a 20-minute onslaught of explosions and bullets). But Spielberg doesn't deal in challenging, his shtick has always been the eventual feelgood factor with all the unfortunate and frankly disturbing implications it brings (Close Encounters anyone?).

That said, it's important to differentiate between "war movies" and "movies set in a war". The latter is where you find thought-provoking artistry whereas the former is, generally, violence porn for teenaged boys (and boy do I know it from experience!) that leaves little more to the viewer than a perverse enjoyment of a real world tragedy (and this is coming from a guy whose favorite movie scene of all time is quite likely ED-209 putting over a hundred bullets in some poor douchebag).

(as a side-note, I kinda thought 1998 was a really poor year for films considering all the awards Saving Private Ryan hauled in until I remembered it was a year that brought us The Big Lebowski, The Truman Show, Rushmore and most of all motherfvcking American History X)

When it comes to movies set in wars, I guess the Vietnam classics of Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, The Deer Hunter (heh, "war movie" my ass) and Born On The Fourth Of July are all top-notch films. If the general theme of militarism is what one looks for, The Hunt For Red October is a supreme thriller. Basterds is a great example of how the backdrop of a war can lend itself to so many artistic opportunites. Starship Troopers is the best satire made this side of Robocop, but considering its entire existence is mocking the very concept of a "war movie", it might not be right up your alley. Der Untergang has Bruno Ganz competing for the title of "most compelling portrayal of a nazi" right behind Christoph Waltz and the (absolute and obvious winner) Kenneth Mars. Then I guess The Day After technically counts as being set in a war, nuclear or otherwise - whatever it is, the slow gradual buildup to eventual nuclear combat is directed so well that it sends chills down your spine. Hotel Rwanda is worth seeing for Nick Nolte and Don Cheadle alone. I've only heard good things about The Man Who Would Be King, Come And See (Idi I Smotri) and The Thin Red Line so they're on my watchlist (which is increasingly bloated these days) so they're probably good too.

This meandering rant has been quite pointless though considering the best war-themed film of all time is Paths Of Glory. :D

Quaazi mentioned some good ones but I think here are some you'd probably enjoy: Das Boot is extremely good. I didn't like Saving Private Ryan at all but that don't mean Spielberg didn't hit the subject on the head: Try Band of Brothers which is not a movie but a miniseries related to. It is an American view of the European war (he followed it with the Pacific version of the conflict again with a movie by Clint Eastwood and a miniseries again on HBO but both really flopped to be honest.)

Patton is a classic albeit old and Hollywood themed (the German produced movie filmed in Prague Der Untergand might be more accessible as Downfall which I guess is exactly the same version since the movie is German spoken only.) The Wannsee Conference is my favourite war related, quasi-documentary, no shots fired film. If you do watch it and like to discuss it please open up a thread. I tried making it to the house once (it is now a Museeum) but y'know, work, time, money.

I had mixed feelings about Valkyrie but not a bad choice (when bored and the only other option is watching Manchester United vs Chelsea.) Where was that bunker actually located? It was near Wolfsburg wasn't it?
I liked Shinning Through a lot. Back in Russia you have Enemy at the Gates (very good) and of course going beyond WWII Platoon is a f*cking classic.

There are few documentaries I might recommend but I am not sure that's what you are looking for.

I can never tell with you when you're kidding or not but nah, it was in Ostpreussen and it's name was the one with the wolves (Wolfsschanze). The Poles have made it into a right ol' tourist trap these days.

I can agree that Band Of Brothers is very good, allows for the depth Ryan didn't. And I liked Letters From Iwo Jima. It was sappy yet oddly refreshing. Unlike Enemy At The Gates which was pulp history at its worst...

I think so too. Doesn't look like anything special.

No, I wasn't kidding about Valkyrie. I didn't like it to be honest. I think they tried to make it too much of a broad audience movie and missed some key subplots which would have made it quite better; surprisingly so for a WWII movie involving Kenneth Branagh. Speaking of which, German-American, I missed the name of the movie I recommended: The Wannsee Conference is the original German movie related to that subject. Don't watch that one, it is poorly produced to be honest and would bore you to death. There are also some errors in the production if you are particularly picky about history. The one I recommend is Conspiracy with the above mentioned Branagh and Camaleon Tucci (I swear that guy can play more characters than Robert De Niro).

About the bunker, I think I kinda related its location by the 'Wolfs liar' nick but truly half of Lower Saxony looks exactly like that forest in real life. Thanks for the info.

They invested 4 billion in the subject. They have the right to make a spin-off or two. :wink:

With the amount of merchandise Star Wars sells and The Force Awakens' success, they've probably made that back already ;)
