Still great series, Larry!
As for me too many to choose from here are a few:
Bridge too far: excellent story, and Germans who speak German
Longest Day: same as above
Patton: excellent acting by George C. Scott
Enemy at the Gates: finally a movie about the Eastern Front
Saving Private Ryan: If Longest Day didn't show the carnage of Omaha enough this movie sure does!
Kelly's Heroes: Where are going to find a cast for a war comedy like this: Telly Savalas, Clint Eastwood, Don Rickles, Donald Southerland
Where Eagles Dare: quite simply the best little known movie of them all
Burton and Eastwood do a great job acting the plot and the action is AWESOME!
number of kills in the movie: Allies 49
If you want to see a good Eastern front Movie, go watch Stalingrad (german movie)AC wrote:Enemy at the Gates and Das Boot.
I love the Eastern Front which is why i like Enemy at the Gates and Das Boot is just a great dramatic movie which was remarkably done.
If I had to choose a WWI movie it would definitely be 'Gallipoli' with Mel Gibson.
Band of Brothers I forgot to mention btw..
I like "The Thin Red Line" (Guadalcanal) a lot, because of the sharp contrast between serenity (nature scenes) and stress (battle scenes) and the great script.
Between all the great lines in this movie ("I can take anything you dish out. I am twice the man you are"), I especially liked Nick Nolte's lines on the shipdeck before the amphibian landing:
[Nick, playing a Navy Lt. Col., thinking]:
"Worked my ass off ... Brown-nosed the generals ... Degraded myself ... for them and my family ... for my home ..."
[John Travolta, playing a Brig. General, to Nick]:
"I admire you Colonel, I do ... Most men your age would have retired by now. We need general officers with maturity and character like you. We've got good sergeants and good lieutenant colonels. But once a man gets those eagles, he can't wait to get that star. He becomes a politician, right? Goes along to get along. So goddamn hard to stay upright."
[Nick to John Travolta]: "You said it there sir."
[Nick, thinking]: "The closer you are to Caesar, the greater the fear."
Midway (the old one with Charlton Heston and Henry Fonda)
I liked it even though it had a nuclear carrier with steam catapults as the model for Hiryu.
and the new one
Letters from Iwo Jima
I liked this one because it looks so awesome. Got a little boring sometimes and not much music but I really enjoyed it.
