Ask a Question

Just a bit of fun . Do you have a greatest war movie?For me I do love the opening 10 minutes of Saving Private Ryan and because technically its a war in space I absolutely love anything to do with the origninal Star Wars .

Being a fan of movies I am looking forward to the movies mentioned.

Plenty great films out there , but for the lighter side of war (!) cant go wrong with Kellys Heroes. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065938/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Platoon. Shocking, brutal and hard hitting. Sad in a way but a true picture of the horrors of warfare.

I like Terrence Malick's The Thin Red Line, Nagisa Ōshima's Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence and Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now.

I agree with Kelly's heroes above. We also like Ike: The war years (Robert Duvall) & Ike: Countdown to D-Day (Tom Selleck). The monuments Men, Escape to Athena. The Pianist (brilliant). The boy in the striped pyjamas.

On a much lighter note - Blackadder goes forth

I don't specifically like war movies, my husband does though. He thoroughly recommends the movie Fury. It's to do with a tank commander and his men.

The best for me is Hacksaw Ridge. I left the cinema in tears of anger and frustration and saying to my granddaughter that it should be compulsory viewing in every secondary school.

It is a true story of a conscientious objector in WWII who wanted to serve his country but refused to carry a gun. He trained as a medic tending soldiers on the front line and on one particular night he saved 75 lives by lowering men over the side of hacksaw ridge to his waiting comrades below, all the time under constant fire from Japanese soldiers.

I think it is Schindler's List (1993), it made me cry and brought home the horrors of the second World War

I'm a big fan of Robert Shaw and he was brilliant in the Battle of the Bulge playing a German and also in Battle of Britain. I suppose he is most famous as the boat captain in Jaws.

Grave of the fireflies is probably the film that most showed me the reality of war despite being an animation. Just because of the emotion of it.

My brother was a huge fan of Kelly's Heroes and its also one of my favourites.
