Can't decide between Cross of iron or Das Boot as the best ever, but the worst BY FAR has got to be Wheels of terror. If somebody made a serious attempt of putting a Sven Hassel novel onto film it'd be epic!...
you lot have just cost me £13.69p. But I did get 7 dvds containing 8 films delivered to my door for that so can't complain!
If you have never seen "THE BRIDGE" about members of the Hitler Youth guarding a bridge as the foward forces of Americans come apon them in the last days of WW2.I believe that you will like this film and there is a site where you can order this and other films and all sorts of stuff including the 2003 book"THE NEW GERMAN REICHSCHANCELLERY IN BERLIN 1938-1945.An original would cost you $400-550 and are quite rare. In the rear is a fold out line drawings of the REICHSCHANCELLERY.Many of the beautiful photos are in color and it cost me $40 or a bit more as i remember.

I've seen both versions of The Bridge, Die Brücke made in west Germany in 1959 and the The Bridge made a few years ago, i thought the German version far more realistic, the dvd i have was bought in Berlin and has no English subtitles, but hey i'm trying to learn more German.
The film 'Brestskaya Krepost' (The Brest Fortress) or 'Fortress of War' as the English-subbed release is titled, is an excellent film. Of course there's the inaccuracies, and the unfortunate choice of presenting all German soldiers as evil, but it does well in showing the horror of war. I found out about it via suggestion of someone else here on the forum.
Im with Ben on 'Iron Sky.'
What a horrible movie.
I looked forward to a well made parody, but it was just so awful.
Inglorous Basterds - awful. Looked forward to that one too but was very disappointed. Tarantino has made some great movies, but he clearly overreached himself on this one. Almost like a parody of some elements of his previous movies, but very stiffly acted, not funny, not tongue-in-cheek. Just a stinker.
Battle of Britain - great.
Kellys - great.
BoB - great.
Max Manus - great (light years ahead of the Danish movies 'Flammen og Citronen/Citron and Hvidsten combined)
Cant comment on Red tails or War Horse, as I havent seen them.
This thread does not make me run down to BlockBuster either!
Look forward to seeing Cross of Honour.
I thought this one very funny and still laugh out loud every time:
From the same comedians, this one is also hilarious:
Hahah, that one is pretty funny too.
