hows about we say "its the best WW2 naval movie"

best air, i'd say would be "battle of britan"

and land would be hard, you'd have to seperate those into smaller cats.

In my view the best GERMAN land movie would have to be "cross of iron"

Best air. It depends on what you are after in the movie. I like to see real WW2 planes, hips of them. So, the best movies would the ones that were shot during or after WW2, where there was hips of them around. However, they are not much fun to watch.
Memphys Belly, Tota Tora Tora, even Pearl Harbour are quite good - you see planes, air battles but with a touch of Hollywood. But Deep Blue Sea(?) about Czech pilots in ww2 was crap to watch.

ok...

I'm not a big fan of the Pacific Teather but "Tora Tora Tora" was good.

Yes, i also liked "Tora! Tora! Tora!" - i personally feel it was better than the recent " Pearl Harbor". My thoughts anyway. Cheers.

"Das Boot" is the best u-boat-movie of the world war II!!!
They have built a 1:1 model of a german u-boat typ VII.
In the bavarian-film-studios near munich is this reproduction!
I've been there and you can really feel the atmosphere wich is in an u-boat...

At the moment Das Boot is my favourite movie (of all movies).

I have seen the director's cut in both the vhs and dvd versions, they had different subtitles and the vhs version is far more faithful (the dvd translation pissed me off) I had the option of watching it dubbed in English on the dvd (instead of subtitles) but I didn't because the last thing I want is Das Boot with American accents!

I've watch the movie with german sounds and german subtitles. Theren't the same! I know the texts very well and so I've watch the movie with english subtiltes and they aren't correct too.

Yes, Das Boot with American accents would definetely ruin the plot and the nationality it's about. Cheers. :)

I understand that subtitles can never be exactly acurate, but I was pissed off at the dvd translation because they deliberately mistranslated some things (saying "belch" when I can clearly hear the character saying "furzen") I can't believe they're trying to tone it down! It's a movie about men killing each other and men dying and they're worried about a little word like fart! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Don't worry about the subtitles! Everybody who can understand english should watch the film in english and everybody who can unterstand german should watch the film in german!

Forgetabout the subtitles!

Well, I'm learning German so it's best for me to watch it in German and try to understand it. Hopefully one day I won't need the subtitles.

I don't think it's a good idea to hear german and read english subtiltes.
If I were you I would watch the film 5-10 times, so you realy know the film and than watch the film in german, without subtiltes. I've done this the other way and it's going very well!

When I've nothing to do, I'm watching "Das Boot" and than I'm stopping the movie in the middle of a sentence and than I'm finishing this sentence.
I'm realy good at this! I've watch the film 25 times or more and now I could tell you the story of the whole film!

Wow! You're my hero! :D

I could do that with "The Lord of the Rings" (the book not the movies).
