The Guns of Navarone
It has aged badly.
The passage of time has also damaged the movie " The Bridge on the River Kwai ", but it's definitely a better movie

The sea wolves is so bad that you just have to see it for laughter value.

A painfully long video game commercial disguised as a WWII movie called "Fury". The shallowest of all.

(Note: "Inglorious Basterds" is not a WWII movie, it's a Tarantino film - a genre of its own.)

Cheers,
Ivan

Agree with Ivan about IB - I only viewed it
because I like Christophe Waltz’s acting.
Tarantino is a weird guy but his films give
Waltz an opportunity to display his talent.

Stalin's present for his 70th birthday: THE FALL OF BERLIN (1949).

Stalin as a superman who can straighten out one man's life in less than a minute, a Churchill as a mustache-twirler, and an FDR as a simple-minded palooka who's barely in the world.

The most bizarre part, though, is Hitler's marriage scene, where he and Eva stroll around the bunker before they take their poison at their wedding supper. Meanwhile the Wedding March plays as a subway floods on Hitler's orders and his secretary grieves her slain son in the rubble of Berlin's streets.

I watched "Fireball Forward" for the first time in years to see if it was as bad as I once thought it was, but it was mildly entertaining for the most part with a few instances of genuinely bad acting. Fans of Loretta Swit will be happy to know that she makes a very brief appearance. The movie is available on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rOKIV_Pt0E0
