World War II thread. Discuss WWII movies, books, and dump WWII pics/gifs/webms.
yeah that's probably my favorite song from them.
I do agree on it not being amazing even for Tarantino, his best probably Jackie Brown but that's because it had great source material to work of.
War films tend to bore me because they quickly become wanky stories of heroism and propaganda about 'heroes' and this is why I only really like Apocolypse Now and a few others

confirmed for not really watching war films outside of the American mainstream
The creation of this board is the best thing that's happened to me today tbqh
I watched it with my grandfather (fought in the Eastern theater to the day the Russians conquered Berlin) and we were expecting a movie along the lines of Saving Private Ryan.
Instead we got a sick Jewish revenge story. I now have watched Tarentino movies and I understand him but, that wasn't a good idea and my grandfather did not enjoy it past the first scene in the movie.
A Bridge Too Far
Battle of the Bulge
Stalingrad (must watch)
Into the White
and Fury which is surprisingly good for an American WWII film. The ending is a little too heroic and unrealistic but for entertainment value you won't be disappointed at all
Honestly WWII films are hit or miss. Most are just laughably bad but many of them are very good.
