    This thread is pretty popular on other boards like militaryphotos.net, so I have decided to start it here as well. You can also post some comment and rating.

    8/10

    The ending was pretty lengthy, but otherwise a perfect movie.

    Sea of Sand...Richard Attenborough, John Gregson etc.
    Standard LRDG story ruined by several silly mistakes; Afrika Korps using Brens & Stens and driving American half-tracks for instance.

    ...and also had a bit propaganda in it. If I remember right the Germans at the end weren't executed.

    I have seen it 4 years ago, so thanks. But in general all Germans were portrayed as animals. The only exception were those Fallschirmjägers that were dropped in the forest.

    last WW2 movie I seen was Kelly's Heroes. I like the movie i know its not entirely accurate and oddball is the first hippie ever in the 40's but the movie just seems cool.

    last WWII movie I watched was Saints and Soldiers. A fictional account of some GIs who escaped the Malmedy massacre and were trying to get back to the lines without meeting up with the Germans. 7/10

    Cant remeber the name, i think it was called 'The Camp'. Rubbish name for a pretty decent film. About life inside a Japanese Prison camp and the efforts of the US rangers to rescue them. Recomended 7.5/10.

    Run Silent Run Deep. Dear god, if I could have done I'd have flushed Clark Gable out of the torpedo tube.

    The Bridge on the River Kwai went on cable last weekend here! I always liked this film.

    "The True Glory", great stuff. Oscar winning contemporary feature length documentary compiled from the work of combat photography teams covering the build up to victory in the west. With an introduction and production advice from Ike himself.
    On an IWM disc with 4 other feature length documentaries: 'From Italy to D-Day', 'From D-Day to Paris', 'From Paris to the Rhine' & 'From the Rhine to victory'. Interesting insight into contemporary feelings about the war and it's aims.
    (Thanks Bod ;))

    Cheers,
    Adam.

    That is most definately something I 'have' to see. Any shops you know that sell it? I don't like buying things over the net.

    The last film I tried to watch was 'Stalingrad'. Bought it for a fiver from the local market, then was horrified to discover it jumps continously about half way through. :mad111:


    Before that it was 'The longest day'.

    I still think band of Brothers is one of the best. But that's just my opinion.
