I agree with you, great movie. But my favorite is "Deep blue world", a Czec movie about pilots leaving Czechoslovakia and joinint RAF. A very nice - yet bitter! - story. Story of men (and women), not only history, not only aircrafts.

Whilst I appreciate "Battle of Britian" for what it is (I own it), I feel it is a bit too dry to make it a good movie. I felt no attachment to any of the characters whereas I had an emotional investment in at least some of the characters in my top 6 pics.

I can confirm its a very good movie indeed. As a matter of fact would be on top of my list.

The finns have made some good realistic warmovies, very far from the hollywood 'hero' style. Others worth mentioning is:

- Tuntematon sotilas (uknown soldier) A classic made 1955. Was ages ago i saw it but i remember it as quite good for its time. Based on the book by V¤in¶ Linna with the same title.

- Ambush (orig title: Rukaj¤rven tie)

- Hyl¤tyt talot, autiot pihat (dont know if it has an english title. "vergivna hus" in swedish) Not as good as Ambush but has a couple of good scenes of IL2 groundattacks.

At least Winterwar, Tuntematon sotilas and Ambush should be available on dvd with english subtitles.

I used to live in the town where that movie was made ( Cham, Bavaria ).
The bridge stood until the mid-nineties when it was replaced by a new one because of being not safe to use anymore (they said...).
I found that kinda sad and would´ve preferred if they had left it standing and built a new one besides it, as the corresponding street is very small and not much used anyway...

Pretty funny thing is that each time I watch the movie I wonder how big that thing looks compared to reality.I mean, that thing was so small that with the old ´76 Ford Granada we had when I was a kid you almost had to watch out not touching the sides when driving over it, leave alone crossing it with a tank... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

KGr.HH-Sunburst, you've listed some real tripe in there mate IMHO. U-571 is a total insult to those British seamen that captured the U-boat on the surface, which wasn't U-571 incidentally. At the time of release the guy who got the enigma machine was still alive and the BBC interviewed him. He said that he went into the U-boat looking for documents etc and spotted what he thought was a typewriter screwed to the desk - so he took it. At the time he didn't realise just what an important find he'd made. Fortunately he said he wasn't insulted by the film, which to me was a disgrace. Not because of the story itself, but because i've no doubt that many an american walked out of that cinema thinking that was historically accurate. At least Kelly's Heroes/Dirty Dozen etc was entertainment and made no attempt to hijack a real incident.

As for "We were soldiers" - my brother and I watched that and laughed virtually all the way through it. Never in my days have I seen such pap, it's the worst war film i've ever seen by a country mile. The funniest part is where Gibson calls in an airstrike and within 17 seconds (we timed it) of him STARTING the call and BEFORE he'd finished giving coordinates there were strikes of napalm from 2 sets of fixed wing from different directions and 1 helicopter strike - absolutely hilarious!!
Sorry, but I just enjoy GOOD war movies.

Saving Private Ryan is excellent but it's a shame that in many WW2 films made by Hollywood it portrays the Brits as stuck up or stupid, usually both, and that is very sad.

Pearl Harbour? Another shame, with lines like "I think World War 2 just started" - D'oh! it's nearly 1942 for God's sake!!!

Rant over! my list is:

Schindlers List
Saving Private Ryan & Band of Brothers
A Bridge Too Far
Enemy At The Gates

As for Vietnam, there's only really one for me and it's Platoon, Oliver Stone was there after all. Apocolypse Now just gets too wierd for me.

Trivia: Screenwriter Robert Pirosh based this story on his experiences as an infantryman in the 101st Airborne during the Battle of Bastogne. Consequently many of the incidents in the film - such as Pvt. Kippton's habit of always losing his false teeth, or the Mexican soldier from Los Angeles who had never seen snow until he got to Belgium - that have always been derided as "typical Hollywood phony baloney" actually happened.

It's not a good movie-
Where Eagles Dare

But it has everything- secret mission, covert agents, doublecrosses, disguises, firefights, car chases...

Saving Private Ryan and Das Boot are great films, with great anti-war messages, that are still exciting and make you hope and pray for the main characters

But Where Eagles Dare is just plain fun.

So is "The Eagle has landed". The book is great, as is "The Eagle has flown"

Surprised no one's mentioned this:

'The Battle of El Alamein'

It's an Italian movie and the action centers on two Italian brothers and the parachute company one of them leads. Unfortunately, it's dubbed into English (I prefer subtitles), but, aside from that, it's fairly good. It certainly gives you another perspective of the desert war.

http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gifI found this site with the Flubs and other info from Military Aviation Movie's.
It has some interesting info on Flick's from Ace of Wings 1927 to Flight of the Intruder 1991... and more.

Link: http://www.coastcomp.com/av/fltline2/avmovie.htm

Here is a few remarks from the site.

Flight of the Intruder
1991 *v
USN- D. Glover; Vietnam A-6 Intruder crew go on a personal strike "Downtown" to Hanoi. Shot on INDEPENDANCE, (also RANGER?), in Kauai, Hawaii and Savannah Georgia.

A-6E Intruders of VA-122, 128, 126, 165. C-2B Greyhound, SH-3 Sea King, A-3 Skywarrior, F-4 Phantom (both on deck only), A-7E Corsair II, MiG 17, and two (AD-4N and AD-6) Skyraiders. The Intruder markings seem to be Vietnam-era unit marks over the current low-vis scheme and don't look right. Background aircraft are clearly 1990's low-vis.

Flying Leathernecks
1951 *v
USMC- Disliked John Wayne as hard commander. F4U-4's Corsairs of VMF-232, F6F-5 Hellcats of VMT-2 from MCAS El Toro (as "Wildcats"!). Many F6F, F6F-5N hulks. SNJ as ("Zeros") PBY-6A Catalina, later blown up. R5D (C-47), R6D (C-54).

God is My Copilot
1945 *
USAAF- Dennis Morgan; Flying Tigers biography of R.C Scott. Shot at Luke AAF Aux. Field #7. 15 Curtiss P-40F's 554 FTS Luke, 12 B-25C/D/G Mitchells from 952 TS at Mather Field. About 15 Luke 3028 AFBU AT-6's ("Zeros"). 1 Republic P-43 Lancer. C-47. 2 P-40 hulks,

One AT-6 glanced off a B-25 during filming of the final mass air scene, killing 5 crew in both aircraft (or just the T-6 pilot, according to another source).

6 P-40 mock-ups from "Flying Tigers". Curtiss A-25 (Helldivers), Lockheed A-29 (Hudson), Beech AT-11 Kansan Camera Ships.

FLUB-Japanese A/C ID Posters in briefing room in one scene include a Constellation drawing. It hadn't even flown in 1941! Models. Mock-up SB2U-1as "Zero".

Hell's Angels
1930 v
WWI- B.Lyon; Howard Hughes made this epic about 2 Americans who join the RFC. Made with up to 87 biplanes and 80 pilots (including Roscoe Turner), although some reports say no more than about 40 aircraft at one time.

Types included 5 Thomas-Morse Scouts S4.C (as "Camels"), 3+ SE.5, Sikorsky S-29 ("Gotha"), this crashed killing a stuntman) 8 Fokker D.VII, 2 Jennies ("Avro 504") Snipes?, Camels? DH.4. Many Travelair 2000/4000's ("Fokker") Many crashes both planned and accidental, 3 of them were fatal. DH.4, Travelair camera plane. Models.

Filmed at several 1920's Los Angeles Fields- Caddo (Van Nuys), Inglewood, Chatsworth, Riverside, Encino, Santa Cruz, Glendale and Oakland in the San Francisco area.

How do you pick just 1? And what on what merits?

Saving Private Ryan - realistic reenactment, lots of fighting, great acting, some humor, fantastic drama situation

Heartbreak Ridge (funniest)
Tora x 3 (epic, great battle, lots of action)
Midway (same)
Bridge Over River Kwai (drama, acting, situation (POW), otherwise unknown history)
Patton (epic of a great leader's rise and fall)
12 o Clock High (just plain great)
Full Metal Jacket (get the f**k off of my obstacle!!!)
Guadalcanal Diary (another forgotten story, but not enough credit to the pilots who saved the island)
Gung Ho (great action)
They Were Expendible (Action, PT boats)
Yank in the RAF (Betty Grable)
Crash Dive (Great submarine story)
Stalag 17 (First major movie on subject of POW's, great story & characters)
Away All Boats (action)
Das Boot (classic)
Empire of the Sun ("POW" situation, fantastic characters, P-51's save the day, excellent drama as all POW movies are concerning the survivability and creativity of mankind)

We could write a book.

1. "They Were Expendable" - The Dark early days of the war in the Pacific as seen from the plywood deck of a PT boat.

2. "Air Force" - Again from Dec. 7 on to mid-war. Fictitious battle at the end but great action.

3. "Battle of the Bulge" - The only thing they got right was the date and area, everything else was wrong, wrong, wrong but I loved Bronson in this one as Maj. Wollenski.

4. "Battan" - I'm a sucker for "last stands" and desperate odds. Propaganda yes... but great propaganda.

5. "Enemy at the Gates" - Amazing film about a part of WW we never hear much about. Stalin was a butcher but the valiant Soviet soldier is as much the reason I'm free right now as anyone or anything else.

6. "Fort Apache" - Henry Fonda does Custer... don't piss on the natives.

7. "Glory" - Before this movie was made many folks thought that Black Americans had never fought for their freedom, that it was handed to us gratis... Perhaps they know differently now.

8. "Aliens" - Before you begin screamin, Vasquez's rear guard action in this film was one for the ages.

9. "Charge of the Light Brigade" - Bad history again but what a chestnut.

10. "Da Boot" - You can almost smell the fear.

11. "Gettysburg" - Perhaps the biggest turning point in this nation's history. Chamberlin on Little Roundtop.

For the germans and border-near neighbours around here:

MediMax offers a 3 DVD bundle with Patton, The Longest Day (b/w original version) and Tora!Tora!Tora! for only 19.99" since today. Or Tora! bundled with "Der blaue Max" (Blue Max) for 12.99", all in german and english original.

Got the 3 DVD bundle although I prefer the colored version of The Longest Day...

It's an interesting film, but the dialogue is perhaps a little unrealistic. Its just too poetic if you bear in mind the intelligence of your average GI. I'm sure GI's discussions centred more around girls and who was going to catch the next bullet rather than mans inhumanity to man and the psychological effects of war than dipicted in this film.
