Just got it tonight, sounds quite well to watch.
You mean to tell me, you were under the impression that I was a WW2 Veteran and still you spoke to me in the way that you had???
If you notice Volga, we are lucky to have a handful of actual WW2 Veterans in this place. Aside from them being many years our elders, these brave soles fought against the ultimate evil in man's darkest hour and are regarded as heroes (at least by me) and treated with the out most respect by us rogues. We are fortunate enough to actually here about their experiences and soak in all of which they say as we understand that with each passing year there are fewer and fewer of them left. We DO NOT mock, belittle or disrespect them nor or do we attempt to arrogantly educate them on the history which them themselves took part in and we did not.
It seems your hatred for Russia has blinded and deprived you of the very basic qualities instilled in all of us from an adolescence which distinguishes us as descent human beings. You need to open your eyes, you much to learn...
My favorites are:
1) Kelly's Heroes
2) Where Eagles Dare
3) PT 109
4) Objective Burma
5) Saving Private Ryan
6) Tora! Tora! Tora!
9) Sands of Iwo Jima
Best WW2 film Sokolovo.
Trailer- YouTube - Battle of Sokolovo (1943)
I have seen all of these as well, I think Battle of Britain should of made the list it's one of my all time favorites.
My favs in no paticular order are
The Winter War
The Dessert Fox
The Bridge (good german film)
Come and See (brutal russian take)
Attack and Retreat (Italian film on Italian soldiers during Stalingrad)
Stalingrad- dogs do you want to live forever (the b/w version)
Hell is for Heroes
Where is Pearl Harbour
I like the sence where hundreds of Type Zero flying towards the Harbour
The Great Escape
Pearl Harbor (Well, Katie Bex in a nurse's uniform.......)
A Bridge Too Far
The Battle of Britain
The Cruel Sea
Ice Cold in Alex
Reach for the Sky
Carve Her Name with Pride
Enemy at the Gates
Attack force z- This is one of Mel Gibson's earliest films. I thought the grease gun with the added silencer was one of the coolest points of the film.
Attack- Jack palance and Eddie Albert are in this one with Lee Marvin. Albert plays cowardly Captain Urskin [sp] and as a result Joe Costa's [Palance] troops are killed.
A Bridge Too Far- I love the theme music.
Battle of Britain- The aerial sequences are very well done.
Tora! Tora! Tora!- This movie is ten times better than Pearl harbor.
I don't know how any of you can be listing the most recent version of "Pearl Harbor" as a 'Best WWII Film'.....it belongs on the "Worst WWII Films Ever Made" list!
some of the best ww2 films were made during the war and into the 50s,b/w always has a feel for the times portayed...

Battle of Britain.
Cross of Iron.
Halls of Montezuma.
Sand of Iwo Jima (I couldn't leave out Duke ;-))
Decision Before Dawn.
Man of the Fighting Lady.
A Bridge Too Far.
The Bridge Over the River Kwai.

When trumpets fade- this was a made for HBO movie about the battle of the hurtgen forest which was overshadowed by the battle of the bulge.
pork chop hill- this might not be a world war 2 movie but it deserves mentioning.
men in war- I love this movie with Aldo Ray. Vic Morrow has a role in it as well.
"When Trumpets fade" is quite an epic movie! I would recommend to anybody as well!
Cross of Iron
Sand of Iwo Jima
Battle of Britain
A Bridge to Far
The Longest Day
Where Eagles Dare
The Dam Busters
I really enjoyed Downfall and another film that not might be known half as well, called The Counterfeiters. It covers Operation Bernhard from the beginning right up until the end of the war.
some of my faves:
come and see
lust, caution (haha)
It think we can all agree on these.
The longest Day,
A bridge Too Far,
The Battle of Britain,
The Great Escape,
The Bridge over the River Kwai.
Now although this is not strictly a ww2 film in the sense of combat, it is still a great movie set in ww2 and it is about a Japanese Prisoner Camp, that houses only women, mostly Australian, but also has British and Americans, Dutch and even a German lady Doctor. The movie deals with there struggle though the war and there time in the camp and how they were treated by the Japanese, a great movie one I recommend.
Paradise Road (1997)

I find that Band Of Brothers is a great show, even though its not a movie. And Enemy At The Gates is a great movie, in my mind. Saving Private Ryan is a good one as well.
