Recently I watched Fetih 1453 and enjoyed it. I want to know a list of similar epic siege war movies. I saw troy and Kingdom of Heaven.
We're watching Gettysburg, which is a great education in the Civil War for our 15-year-old son. What are other great movies about battles and war?
I'm writing a war/horror story where two groups of sworn enemies band together to defeat a common foe. I'm looking for some suggestions on stories/books/films to borrow (i.e. steal) ideas from. Already thought of "Hell in the Pacific" and "Joyeux Noël" which deal with similar themes, but I was hoping you all could suggest some others....
What resources (films, books, websites) can I share with my 13 y/o daughter who has expressed a recent keen admiration and care for the American soldier from the Vietnam War era to the present? [more inside]
I have several questions about the 2006 movie The Good Shepherd with Matt Damon, and I haven't been able to find answers from my usual sources. I'm hoping Robert DeNiro is a secret MeFi fan and will step in, providing closure. [spoilers ahoy!] [more inside]
Do I watch Flags of our Fathers or Letters from Iwo Jima first? Also, Should I watch one after the other, or allow time to ponder?
Help me identify a movie I barely remember. Coins, pools, abandoned houses, and maybe a war? [more inside]
Bookfilter / Moviefilter - Need book and movie recommendations about resistance fighters in wars. Particularly interested in the European theatre of World War II but open to other times, settings, and points of view whether fictional or non-fictional. [more inside]
What films (preferably in Netflix's catalog) do a good job of depicting the misery and scale of the trenches of World War One? [more inside]
Why don't fighter jets (in real life or in those classic movies) have backwards pointing guns and missiles to shoot down their chasing adversaries in dog-fights? [more inside]
War Movies: I'm looking for any good movies about World War II, specifically to do with civilian life (rather than military actions.) I've seen Au Revoir Les Enfants and The Diary of Anne Frank - can you suggest any others you've enjoyed?
