    Action movies or period movies.

    war movies is a specific genre. It’s not particularly open to interpretation.

    Wow quite the list already but I am surprised no one has mentioned:

    The Pacfic (Series)

    Letters From Iwo Jima & Flags Of Our Fathers

    The Siege Of Firebase Gloria (With Gunny and very B movie esq but some wonderful parts and quite brutal/ realistic)

    The Beast (Another Russian tank movie)

    Hope And Glory (A must watch)

    We Were Soldiers (A bit too dramatic but to be honest that hold out kind of deserves it)

    A Walk in The Sun...

    I think this is the one, but haven't seen for a long time. Follows a US platoon during the invasion of Italy. It portrays that feeling of hours of day-to-day monotony interspersed with periods of panic and the odd buddy or two falling by the wayside.

    No one has mentioned Dunkirk, either.

    And for a good reason.


    They really need to make a proper Battle of Britain movie with lots of dogfights etc, with modern day cinematography, having Spitfires and German bombers, Stukas and Messi's-shits going at it full Lulu would be quality.

    I'm sick of good guy/ bad guy war movies tbh. Kinda got sick of John Wayne & ilk saving the day when I was still a kid. This latest Chinese one is just another example- it's just that the chinks are the good guys. The best war movies are anti-war- they certainly don't glorify it.

    As there is some interest, here are others.

    The Mosfilm site has a selection of Russia films and many types, old and new, most with English subtitles.

    Very much propaganda and lots of soldiers, on both sides, dying in the mud.

    Is worth the double up.

    But cannot believe that "The dam busters" has been missed, Was a childhood favorite of mine, Was on TV at least every 2-3 years.

    Good atmosphere... shame about the budget

    The Tiger Tank looks like they have taken a T-34 and then applied cosmetic surgery to it to make it look like a Tiger

    Along with 633 Squadron, which also seems to have been missed.

    Not sure if already mentioned but the escape moves

    Great Escape which seems to play eah holiday and that famous "whistle"
    Stalag 17
    my favourite the witty gritty dramatization of Colditz, it later became a BBC series and a board game but the original with John Mills, Lionel Jeffres,War Movies Worth a Watch-wattis-carmichael-colditz-jpg and a youthful Brian Forbes whom I met and the great duo of Richard Wattis and Ian Carmichael in their prime doing a cabaret sketch with the classic lineS
