Out of all the two WW2 movies I've seen, it would have to be Enemy at the Gates because I can't remember the other one.

WWII doesn't have nearly the amount of quality cinematic representation as Viet Nam. I'm going to have to go with Saving Private Ryan and The Great Escape. I would have included The Dirty Dozen, but I rewatched it a few days ago, and I realize now it's really kind of cheesey...

I also really liked HBO's Band of Brothers miniseries.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/351.gif it's the thought that counts, keep in mind, at the time most WWII movies were made, lighter sabers were unheard of, man had just (or maybe even not yet)landed on the moon, and your parents were growing up, not to mention CGI much less computers couldn't have been in existance that long...http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif...

Its about, how the military doesnt want to waste any more special forces guys on espionage and sabotage missions, so they get 12 criminals who are on death row to do their job. It has its funny times but it is also really sad and emotional at points.

BTW i also love the series hogans heroes http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif very funny http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

Actually most WW2 movies were made on real stories http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Schindler's List was freaky. Its so real!

Has anyone here seen the new movie "Downfall"? It is based on the last week of hitler's life in his private bunker, "the wolf's lair" as it was commonly known. I havent seen it but ive heard its cery graphic. Ive also heard that the film "humanises" hitler in a way because of all the "great" things that he did to get the Weimar republic back on track and among the world super powers in such a short time.

Saving Private Ryan was really good I think

But the one of the best movies about WWII is Patton hands down. My mom who hadn't seen the movie in 20 years, before we pop the movie in starts humming the theme song to the movie - like i said, hadn't heard it in 20+ years.

What I am disappointed in is the lack of Revolutionary War films. The only one out there that I believe does any justice to it is the Patriot. I really hope they make good and true movies about one of the most important war's we have ever been in. If they are going to make movies about it - base them off the 2 Jeff Shaara books - The Rise to Rebellion and The Glorious Cause.

Jeff Shaara is the author whose book Gods and Generals was made into a movie 2 years ago. Was it the greatest hollywood movie ever, no. But it was a great war movie. I only hope they finish up the Civil War Trilogy with The Last Full Measure. He is the son of Michael Shaara who wrote The Killer Angels aka Gettysburg.

Basically all of his books should be put in movie form. He wrote one on the Mexican War, WWI and is putting one out about WWII

Speaking of authors' books being out into movies, my favorite book, "Jarhead" by Anthony Swofford is coming out into a movie, sometime in November. It's a great book, but i just hope Hollywood doesn't mess it up, like they've done so many other times.
