I will, too. It's the first I've ever heard of that one! REAL operational Panther, Tiger, etc.? Anybody know if it's out on VHS (NOT DVD!)

U571 is the worst
only to make the germans bad (the supply uboat shoots 4 times or 6 times on the caputered uboat but the heroic americans only need one torpedo. wow. amazing. good job. very well)
fucking film.

i hate every film that make the germans bad this is only propaganda...

THE PATRIOT! With Mel Gibson.


It may have been entertaining and even moving at times, but it was one of the most unrealistic and hollywood-ized versions of history I have every seen. From a historical perspective, The Patriot was a terrible movie.

Worst Movies.

Post by lisset » 07 Apr 2003 17:28

Turkeys.
U-571, Battle of The Bulge , Dirty Dozen,
Pearl Harbour , almost all 1960's Hollywood movies....simply beacuse the "Germans" are all stupid and wooden sterotypes.
571 ....rubbish of the first order.
Battle of The Bulge........tripe of the first order...how did we win without Henry Fonda.
Dirty Dozen...again Germans are wooden , stupid and dance when shot.
1960's movies poor scripts , hollywood wins the war ...no attempt to deal with serious issues.
Add to that any movie which John Wayne wears a uniform in great actor but not suited to any W.W.2 stuff.
When you think of it few W.W.2 subject movies are worth a look , countable on the finmgers of one hand.

I see some of you mentioned Pearl Harbour. i guess you mean the new film, and not the old ToraToraTora? and i saw one here talking about terror wheels, dont you mean Wheels of terror? based on the books of Sven Hassel?That film is a good film if You are a grat fan of Sven Hassel but still for a fan as me it show some drawbacks. wrong Panzers etc. but it is funny to watch your "heroes" on film :D
And No one is alowed to say anything bad against RAMBO... he was my BIG hero when i was around 10years :lol:

Thin Red Line

Post by Lars EP » 10 Apr 2003 13:58

Thin Red Line was not only an outstanding WW2 film, it was an outstanding film by all measurements... What is wrong with you guys? Does a film gets boring when there is no macho-bullshit and explosions every second minut?

:roll: :roll:

The worst WW2 film got to be either U571 or Pearl Harbour. I wasn't impressed by Enemy at the Gates either. Saving Private Ryan had some entertainment value, but otherwise?

The worst warmovie I have ever had the bas fortune to watch is We Where Soldiers.... What a pile of s***!

What is wrong with that movie Lars? i Think it show the fighting as horrible it was. and when i read about Hal Moore i can really imagine that it could be something like in the movie.
But i guess we all had different ideas of what a good film should bee :)

Lars "Thin Red Line was not only an outstanding WW2 film, it was an outstanding film by all measurements... What is wrong with you guys? Does a film gets boring when there is no macho-bullshit and explosions every second minut?"

bad story, too long. BAD ACTING

AND BAD BOOK

but yeah "We were soldiers" wanted to give a deep saddness at the end and it really didn't get it across.

Well, if you think that James Jones' war-trilogy is bad.... then there is nothing I can do or say... :D Except be thankful that the publishers disagreed with you.
