OT: WW2 movies

  • Midway from 1976 and 2019.  Both versions are good.  Except if your rooting for the Imperial Japanese Navy.  How about a couple of submarine movies?  Run Silent, Run Deep and Operation Pacific. Also Das Boot is the king of WWII sub movies.  Operation Petticoat the funniest.

    You might be right since the other movie stars the gardener "Bert Landcaster" (probably riding a Toro).

    Staples over here,  usually at Christmas - oddly, are;
    • 633 Squadron about the Mosquito attack on a heavy water plant in Norway
    • Battle of Britain about the air war which prevented air superiority over the UK and so Hitler's first defeat. 
    • The Dambusters which encompasses the science, engineering and extreme determination required to conduct the raid.  What gets overlooked, in my opinion, is the indiscriminate nature or air warfare back then by both sides.
    • The Bridge over the River Kwai, which I have always found to be very tough watch.
    Honourable mentions to;  Where Eagles Dare,  Ice Cold in Alex,  Angles 15, The Great Escape, The Eagles has Landed plus various ones involving ships and water but they give me the creeps. 

    My favourite is The English Patient.  By a long, long way.  Not just because Top Secret is not a WW2 film, although a bit like one.

    Von Ryan's Express - read the book in Jr. HS and saw the movie a couple years later.

    The movie plot from Wikipedia:

    A group of United States Army paratroopers led by Captain Nelson are dropped into Burma to locate and destroy a camouflaged Japanese Army radar station that is detecting Allied aircraft flying into China. For their mission, they are assigned Gurkha guides, a Chinese Army Captain and an older war correspondent whose character is used to explain various procedures to the audience.

    The mission is an overwhelming success as the 36-man team quickly take out the station and its personnel. But when the airborne troops arrive at an old airstrip to be taken back to their base, they find the Japanese waiting for them at their rendezvous site. Captain Nelson makes the hard decision to call off the rescue planes, and hike out on foot.

    To reduce the likelihood of detection, the group then splits up into two smaller units to meet up at a deserted Burmese village. But when Nelson arrives at the meeting place, he finds that the other team had been captured, tortured and mutilated by the Japanese. Only Lt. Jacobs survives, and he too dies after telling Nelson what had happened. The surviving soldiers are then attacked and are forced again to retreat into the jungle. The men must then cross the swamps in their attempt to make it back to safety through enemy-occupied jungle.

    Fighting an almost constant rearguard action, Nelson's paratroopers also succeed as decoys leading Japanese troops away from the site of the British 1944 aerial invasion of Burma.


    *******

    Does that ring any more bells? In any case, enjoy the movie!
