of the greatest - if not the greatest - battle scenes of all time, imo, anyway.. Those guys took care of bidness!
..but the movie, which I actually liked, is historically sprinkled with horsesh*t...

I didn't do battle scenes so much because for me a war film shows what's best about it when it reveals what's at stake in the story.

I personally didn't like Braveheart. A lot of it was because of the historical stuff you mention.

So the battle scenes out of context didn't mean that much to me.

Also posted were battle scenes from Glory. Glory is a good film. Those are great scenes that fit right into what the story is about (all those men were fighting with extraordinary courage because the very fact they were fighting proved something and contributed to the cause of freedom for blacks, not just soldiers).

  Hmm!! Woody Harrelson as Chester Nimitz in the new "Midway"?

Ramgator267July 08, 2018 06:14AM

  If I had my choice, Spielberg, Eastwood and Tom Hanks would be involved.

  Inglorious B's was so close to being great

Atlantic Ram110July 08, 2018 03:33PM

  Inglorious B's was great early and then rolled downhill IMO.
