Worst WW II film ever.

    Young Grasshopper,

    I agree completely. “I.B.” was a “spoof” type of movie,…and as such was somewhat (but not very) succesful.

    “Tall Paul”



  • If you take out the amazing job the actor did playing the german officer in I.B. The film would pretty much be a waste  of time. Just my opinion.

    When they cut into his forehead at the end, and the credits started rolling, I began clapping loudly and everyone stared. Let’s not forget that IB is a least watchable, unlike some others in the poll.

    Best Cold War movie ever made?

    Red Dawn?

    Gargantua,  Are you ready to see the remake of red dawn? They finished post production in 2010!  the studio sat on the release with the hope that releasing THOR first would be a hit and create buzz about the guy who plays Thor. (He’s playing Jed E.) Then the studio had a P.R. problem with the story line of the bad guys being chinese this time so they’ve spent the end of last year doing a C.G.I. overhaul turning the chinese uniforms into North Korean. The studio feels this will give it larger appeal globally. Even if it’s bad I still have to see it.



  • Want to see a good film made during the cold war?  See  ON THE BEACH.  And if you see it, remember that nobody had seen movies on this topic before. Besides, it stars Gregory Peck, Ava Gardner and fred astaire.

    I’m not ready for the Red Dawn remake.

    I’m ready for the REAL thing 🙂  In the next 100 years it’s going to happen.  People have ALWAYS fought over resources.  We have them, and they don’t.  I hope you boys in the south are on our side, I can’t imagine you not being.

    It’s sad to hear that it’s been temporarily shelved though :s that’s stupid.

    ON THE BEACH sounds interesting, thanks for the tip, I’ll check it out.

    On the Beach is a very sad depressing movie. It is not a ww2 film, but a ww3 film.

    It is a good movie but everybody basically dies…

    so much for a spoiler alert IL. LoL.  And its not a ww3 film its a post apocalypse film. Thats part of the message being made, with a full exchange of warheads its over. No fronts no battles. Just the reality that were all as good as dead if it starts.

    Saying that everyone dies in a war movie, is like saying that everyone gets laid in a porn flick.

    Well its not a “war movie”. It’s about the people of Australia who are the only living people left after the rest of the world got nuked. They are basically waiting to die, since the radioactive cloud takes about 6 months to arrive and how they live their lives out in these 6 months.

    It is a film about dealing with mortality and how people cope.

     Well said YG.

    My favourite cold war movie is The Beast. (a.k.a. The Beast of War).  Its a 1988 movie set in Soviet occupied Afghanistan and it was an OK movie when it first came out, but since 2001 it has become a very good movie because of the irony.

    LOL The Beast of War…

    Hey Vance, step into the river…

    The Thin Red Line is not a war movie per se.   It is a literature movie comparing and contrasting the concepts of Romanticism and Realism.   The ‘war’ is just the backdrop.   If you are watching it as a war movie, you might be disappointed.   It is a thinking man’s movie, an intellectual masterpiece upon the screen.   Besides answering is Man Good or Bad, it also attempts to answer a line by John Donne cited in the movie: “No man is an island entire of itself.”   Is that true?   I don’t ‘dig deep’ because time proves finite, so I hope my brief comments here suffice.   I encourage people to read literature reviews of the movie.   I have a good literature review.   I will look for it and repost it as a link.

    No amount of apologizing or excuse making is going to make up for the sheer magnitude of sucktard The Thin Red Line brings to the screen.  As a person who immensly enjoys psychological movies, - especially the ones that leave the viewer with more questions than answers, - I can honestly say that if I am going to fall asleep IN THE THEATRE because the movie shows OVER AN HOUR of images of Flora whilst playing voice overs.  That any literary message trying to be relayed, has FAILED MISERABLY, and thus deserves it’s level of disrespect and ill regard.

    Watching tribal children swimming with grown men in crystal clear water, whilst playing eerily creepy psuedo erotic music, isnt going to convince me that the movie is somehow entertaining.  I think the correct word for these scenes, is “Deplorable” and/or “Disgusting”.

  • Nolte was amazing, the rest was boring.

    Yes, invasionist, a term I have personally coined. One which you did not have the creativity to spawn, or even describe; With which undoubted certainty - completely sums every corner of my character. Consider yourself fortunate to have been graced by it.

    Leaving the question, What are you going to do now? The movie sucked, your feeble attempt to apologize for it queefed in the wind - It’s time to get over it, and move forward with your life.

    All we need now is a picture of some Pacific flora.
