Hey look! Wolfenstein 3D as a movie!

*Ahem*

OK, OK..so it's not...but, I mean, don't the "Two headshots before it went down" thing remind you of the old Wolfenstien 3D game where the Krauts wanted to revive dead soldiers?

On a more serious note: Is that a preview for a movie or what?

Creepy!

I once saw a brief clip from a movie that looked very, very similar to this. All I saw was a bunch of Allied soldiers in World War Two getting killing by sentient razor wire somewhere in no man's land. It was a very weird and disturbing scene, with razor wire growing out of the ground like vines and trapping the men. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Very unrealistic movie. The mp and mg42 (1500 rpm) sure would have a hard time to miss on this distance. Except the mg42 shooter from the hip thats pretty unprecise. Long range shooting for m1 is needed.

High Ground is not only more agreeable and salubrious, but more convenient from a military point of view; low ground is not only damp and unhealthy, but also disadvantageous for fighting.

The only thing about it that was truly unbelieveable (well, apart from the obvious) was the Allied soldiers charging the entrenched German soldiers and winning. In real life, the Germans would have slaughtered the Allied guys no matter how good or bad of shots they were.

Still, it looks kind of cool. And this is a low budget movie? Interesting!

Does anyone know the name of that movie I described in my last post?

If you believe or not there were people that got shoots in the head and still got going.

But there are a lot more unrealistic things but the most immersion killing is when people stand about 25 m from each other and hide behind a tree from bullets. You can shoot pinpoint with a handgun on that range. And if a mg can shoot through a tree on that range you can test out yourself.

Doesnt really matter what kind of movie it is.
When it starts like **** it is ****. The idea of a movie is entertainment. When the people acting there are humans they act wrong. As it isnt indicated otherwise we assume from start the guys in US uniforms are humans. This includes that these guys will take care of their lives and act acording to it as it is seen in the first minutes they try to sneak on the position and must assume that the other site is also human(as it wasnt indicated otherwise).

Thats why most movies made without background information are bad cause they dont know how things work and the budget is too small to get
some things right.

This isn't an entire movie... this is just one scene FROM a movie, and it's meant to be more like a trailer.


We used live elements (the real guns with blanks) and sound FX CD's to do most of the audio.

Yeah I think what he ment is the guns themselves not the UBER part of it, castle wolfenstein-ish. Too be realistic though, the Germans were ussually better shots than that. Oh and if there wasss some top secret nazi super zombie factory. You'd think it would be more closely guarded. I wouldn't casually walk towards it in broad daylight in the middle of a field. They might notice you. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Oh and one more thing, in the beginning when the B17 crashed wouldn't they be like holy **** and run to help the guys in the plane. Or at least have a reaction. Its not everyday that a Me262 buzzes over at treetop level blazing into a B17. Even in WWII.

Other than that, interesting stuff. Is it going to be released in theaters or just an online thing???

They cannot sue if it's a free movie. If sonnyboo was making money off this movie, then they can sue him. Just like Project Ai, they have hundreds of airline's names on their aircraft, but they do not charge for them and therefor do not make any money off the airline's names becuase they're all free. But it wouldn't hurt to give credit.

I prefer to encourage young film makers rather than nit pick minute details that common folk will never notice. besides, in all my 5 short years in the Military I can't remember a single mission, training or otherwise, that went all acourding to plan and doctrine.

Big Hollywood movies are bad standard for the Film industry anyway. If thats your bucket of chicken to pay $8 for 45 minutes of special effects, then by all means, enjoy.
But I garantee if you flip through your newspaper you will find a local film festival were you can go all day for about $5 and see projects from students, and indipenant film makers. Most of it is really creative!
Every one is going digital these days so its common for them to promote their films on the web. (such as this film in question)

First off, I'm impressed with the uniforms and actors. There pretty good for an indipendant film, and you can tell there having fun!

Can't wait for the finished product, hope to see it soon! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Technically for a no-budget project it's great. The acting was passable as well. Script-wise it sucked. There's no way the German's could have lost that battle, not without taking out some of the Private Ryans at the very least. A well placed grenade might have added to the realism... that would have meant a lucky victory to the rangers... but with their weapons against a dug-in enemy... no chance!

That's my exact opinion. I think it looks awesome, even if the tactics were unbelieveable. No, the undead bit isn't believeable, but undead can't ever be believeable. Therefore rather than trying to make undead believeable, movie makers should try to make them scary. And this one was. Damn! I knew what was going to happen and I still jumped.

However, I wish the tactics were more believeable, because that's something that can be made believable. I shoot in real life, as well as play paintball, and those Allied soldiers would have had absolute zero chance of overrunning the German position in real life, doing it the way they did in the movie.

All in all, I can't wait to see it. What's this about it being independent, low budget, nonprofit? Huh? By the way, how much are the actors getting paid? Or are the volunteers?

I have to agree though, the charging is very unbelieveable..even in perspektive of the obvious horror flik, with unrealistics at a prime, this scene is a bit too cheesey, at least for my taste. A bit more creativity in this, please http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
