The Enemy Below is a good flick. Not great, but good.
Hunt for Red October gonna fall in here? That's a great movie.
Dr Strangelove, Lawrence of Arabia, All Quiet on the Western Front, Das Boot, Schindler's List, Gallipoli, The Fighting 69th
Did I miss Apocalypse Now on this list?
I'd vote for Private Ryan, but Hurt Locker needs a mention. Maybe MASH, too.
Das Boot is up there. Bridge over the river Kuwai might be my top one. I also liked The English Patient. Empire of the Rising Sun
Looking forward to 1917.
There are plenty of movies that wouldn't make the cut as the best but a good watch. I enjoy watching foreign movies and their account of history of war.
The King's Choice
Downfall.............if nothing else, the performance behind the meme.
King Rat............I prefer the book but a good adaptation.
Something that wasn't clear to be the first time I watch in Inglourious Basterds: Colonel Landa knew who Shosanna was right away. From the jump. He was just toying with her until after the premiere, until the bigger opportunity became clear.
You think ?
was it obvious and I missed it?
Not to me. I didn't think he knew who she was. But I could be wrong.
next time you watch, pay attention to how he keeps dropping references to dairy, the cream, etc. I think he was needling her.
I am a fan of Cold Mountain, but the music is a big part of it.
The crater could’ve been an entire movie.
I asked my wife what her favorite war movie is, and I am now living through clip after clip of Mr. Roberts.
I recommend Mr. Roberts sometime if you haven't seen it, btw.
Absolutely adore this movie. I grew up watching this and movies like Operation Petticoat.
I don't think I have seen Operation Petticoat. It's only because Robert Osborne didn't introduce it to me at some point. That guy could hook me into a movie like no other. Ben is okay, but man Bob could get me interested in a movie like no one. My DVR used to be full of TCM stuff just because he got me interested in what was coming on next.
