              It can barely be considered a war movie, it's a bunch of pretty nature shots with yokels pontificating on human nature. Would have been far more appropriate as a Vietnam flick, but in fairness TM took the book it was based off of and took *all* of its flaws and put them on the screen.

                My favorite part of TRL is how the characters act like a bunch of academics that were unwillingly plucked from their philosophy courses and shipped overseas to fight an enemy and a war they couldn't understand, against an enemy they struggled to truly hate. It was fricking bizarre considering it was the early stages of the goddamned Pacific War. Such a bizarre tone to use in that setting when it seemed tailor made for a Vietnam War movie.

    Cross of Iron, for the brutality of the Eastern front. For King and Empire because, in the end, it was absolutely pointless, and only two of the Newfoundlanders return to their village with16th century living conditions to live in quiet poverty. All that glory, all the sacrifices, and last stands for nothing, "We should all have just stayed home - where we belong." In the end they even lose their home.

          It suffers from russian cinema trying to ape moneymaking hollywood war flicks while trying to score that sweet promotional government funding meant for propaganda based off real events, and then failing to acknowledge that all best russian/soviet war movies were slow in pace and reflective, more long the lines of 1993 Stalingrad. Many such cases (unironically). Then you hear about the actual thing it was based on and it gets even more embarassing how dumb the movie is.

          In its defence, it is much better than recent shit that looks like video game trailers while maintaining the same homosexual heroic pomp some obese government worker imagines war to look like, or at least wants future cannon fodder to imagine what it looks like.

        Ehhh the general is more of a symbol. Because the way he thought a LOT of the brass historically did.

        There were PLENTY of officers that wanted to keep fighting the hopeless fight for the sake of honor. Let's not forget HOW the German revolution of 1918 started: the German leadership was ready to sign the surrender, HOWEVER they wanted to "go out with a bang" so they ordered sailors for one last battle... the sailors knew if they go out there they are doomed. It was a suicide commando all for the sake of a few generals far away of the front being able to stroke their egos about "honor". So the entire fleet collectively mutinied. There was no hope for any victory in such a battle.

        So while that specific situation and person wasn't historical, men like him absolutely DID exist in the top brass of the German army. If the movie had been about these sailors instead they could have made him a true person in a real situation that happened.

        Essentially he was the symbol of "Nazis didn't come from nowhere they were born out of the old Prussian military culture that saw it's way of life threatened". The Nazis in this sense are very similar to the military dictatorship of Imperial Japan that was born out of the Samurai culture.

    Nobody mentioned The Outpost, so I'll drop a recommendation here.
    Ran (Kurosawa retelling of King Lear) is excellent and miserable.
    Das Boot, of course.
    Fury gets a lot of hate but it's breddy gud about showing what it's like to be in a tank, and how totally disposable the average GI was in WWII.

    If you want classics The Bridges at Toko Ri and Bridge on the River Kwai are both great for different reasons.

      The Outpost is good, but it's not truly depressing. It has sad moments for sure, but it arguably has a good ending even it makes you tear up. Something like Stalingrad truly makes you feel miserable at the end, and makes you sit there contemplating your whole existence as the credits roll.

      Assembly (2007).

      Watched it a long time ago, but IIRC it's about a unit during Chinese Civil War that was ordered to defend an area until the bugle call for assembly is sounded, which will signify the order to retreat.

      They accumulate losses and the desperate men began to ask the captain why the call for assembly is not being made. It came to a point where some reported to the Captain that they heard the call but the Captain refused because he did not hear the signal. The unit was wiped out to a man.

      This movie felt like a fricking cartoon despite having a compelling story.

    This movie hit Reagan hard enough to reconsider his nuclear policy and pursue de-escalation.

      The Okinawa episode is one of the greatest war portrayals put on a film. Other than that, it's oddly high spirited. Maybe because the settings just switch so wildly between the frontlines and the home front. Doesn't have that constant depressive atmosphere

        Pacific's pacing is nothing short of lamentable.

    None of you will have seen or heard about this movie, but for me it was Nefes (Breath). When it came out I was a kid and there were news about PKK attacks every day, and I was sure I was going to be conscripted die in this way. I dont know if there's good english subtitles anywhere. It is the real story of a woefully underprepared outpost with no fortifications and untrained personnel (conscripts) being attacked by a much larger force.

          That is a beautiful salute. If only we would have that today. Can you imagine, if today’s blacks would sing to us ‘oh white man, thank you for the car, train, plane, phone, radio, tv, computers’

          What a wonderful world it would be. Hey, a man can dream, right?

              So? They both should salute whites. Africa flourished under colonial rule and all the beautiful white inventions. Everything was balanced, as things should be. Then they chased away the whites and now complain about hunger and crime. What a waste.

    Does anyone know of a Japanese anime film where it actually shows the effects of the nuke? I remember specifically a scene where you literally watch a kid's face get burned off by the Hiroshima nuke, and then after the fact. I remember seeing it on YouTube in 2014.
