Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence 1983 war movie

by ,
War Movies

The war takes place at the front lines, in the occupied cities, but also in secluded places, where the soldiers captured by enemy are kept away until the conflict will end. There were several approaches to the theme of prisoners-of-war camp, f.e. Bridge on the River Kwai, Stalg 17, Rescue Dawn, The Password Is Courage, but Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence is completely different from all of them.

Russian cinema, after the fall of Soviet Union, usually took rather blindingly obvious propaganda as the main theme in their movies, especially war movies. There was nostalgia for communism, there was nostalgia for the times when Russia was a superpower, there was nostalgia for the patriotic spirit in society. But since World War 2 Russians, just like Americans, did not have many chances to show their power and show that they are the good guys. Just like Vietnam War for Americans the Soviet-Afghan War was the turning point, but while in USA the political direction have changed, Soviet Union ceased to exists after the war.

Not every good movie makes a great impact straight after the premiere, some of them it takes a while to find the audience, some never actually does find it. But this does not mean they are bad movies, sometimes they just unlucky, are overseen due to some random factors. The Wild Geese is not exactly any of that cases really - it is one of the movies that are actually quite good, but never got the chance to shine.

Letters from Iwo Jima 2006 American war movie

American war movies very rarely deal with the reasons behind why the nation fought against United States, in most cases because they would have to show the real reasons why USA joined some of the wars, but when it comes to World War 2 they make exception, especially for Japan. Such titles as Tora! Tora! Tora! or Midway were showing the both sides of the conflict, Clint Eastwood returned to that tradition with Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima.

World War 1 was a conflict about nothing - the participants did not really planned to gain new lands, new influences, new trade markets nor it was was based on religious or other ideology. The conflict started about nothing and carried on without any purpose consuming more lives than any previous conflict. This conflict was suppose to end all wars, which it failed, but every war movie about World War 1 reminds us how terrified times the conflict really was. Of course not for the generals, but for the simple people stuck in damp trenches just waiting to die.

The 1960s in America were turbulent times - the assassinations of Martin Luther King and President John F. Kennedy were just small part of the social revolution that was aiming to stop the violence and stop the racial segregation. Even though the World War 2 has ended 20 years earlier the situation of black Americans have not changed much and when Black Brigade premiered in ABC in 1970 it was one of the first films that showed how during World War 2 black soldiers were treated by US Army.

There were many comedies situated on the edge of army, navy or airforce - all you need is someone not suitable to serve in the army and live weapons. Down Periscope is one of those movies that are made for fun only without any deeper meaning.

Saving Private Ryan 1998 epic war movie

War Movies

Premiere of Saving Private Ryan was a revolution in the genre - before 1998 there were several approaches to war movies, from adventure driven ones (like Operation Burma or Kelly’s Heroes) to documentary-like blockbuster productions (like Midway or Tora Tora Tora), but there was nothing like Saving Private Ryan, nothing so intense, so real, so jaw-dropping and at the same time so terrifying. Steven Spielberg and Janusz Kaminski came up with perfect recipe by decreasing the saturation, adding sharper image and more dynamic camerawork.

Red Dawn 1984 war movie

Classic movies are not always those that are very old, those that are made with greatest skill, had the best screenplay or the best cast. Classics are those movies that after the years are still attractive and still are fondly remembered. And Red Dawn is one of such movies - it can hardly be called a masterpiece, it can hardly be called a deep and complexed story, but it was good enough so many people still enjoy it over 30 years later.
