War Movies

The 1950s and 1960s were the golden era for independent productions in United States - anyone with some money could have been director, producer or both (let’s not forget that greatest works of Ed Wood Jr were made in those times). Of course most of those productions were cheap scifi movies not really worth a second look, but war movies were a bit of a challenge for the amateur film makers - you actually need some sets and some models or war-era footage to show the action scenes.

The Silver Fleet 1943 British war movie

British war movies made during the World War 2 had rather unique approach to the conflict - while f.e. German such movies appealed to the patriotism, American were showing their brave soldiers doing the impossible things, the British productions were concentrating on the human aspect of the conflict - In Which We Serve, We Dive at Dawn or One of Our Aircraft is Missing were showing not how great the British army is, but rather on how the Britons or their allies are coping with the war. The Silver Fleet was no exception...

German occupation during World War 2 changed the Dutch society forever - some people just tried to survive the terror, some joined the resistance and tried to save the Jews from being sent to concentration camps, some joined the Nazi effort to clear the country of any Jewish people. This turned neighbours against each other, people simply stopped to trust each other since the only way to know who your friends is was to put your life in his hands. But there was another group of people, people like Dries Riphagen, who played by their own rules.

K-19: The Widowmaker 2002 war movie

War Movies

Cold War was a time in which, seemingly, nothing was going on - both sides were building up their arsenals, improving their offensive and defensive capabilities, but there were no direct fires shot. But that was just the public side of the conflict - backstage Cold War was constant struggle, on both sides, not to go an inch too far and start the open conflict. But also it was constant struggle not to show your secrets or weaknesses, which lead to paranoia and situations like the one showed in K-19: The Widowmaker.

What is the best way to commemorate the fallen soldiers? To tell their story, of course. Unless you are in Hollywood, then you make up some story and call it "based on true events" and put as much BS as possible to spice up the original events.

Sink the Bismarck! 1960 war movie

War Movies

Back in the 1950s, 1960s and even 1970s most of the war movies used plastic, styrofoam, wood and metal to create models used to film the fight scenes. Since they had no today technology they had to improvise, but what I simply can’t understand is why they made the movies so mych better than what Hollywood has to offer today?

Oblawa / Manhunt 2012 Polish war movie

War Movies

Poland has a long history of wars devastating the country from Middle Ages to the World War 2, so it is not surprising that many movies made in Poland are linked to wars, especially World War 2. Oblawa (Manhunt) is based on the experiences of veteran of Home Army (Armia Krajowa), resistance organization that operated partisans units in occupied Poland. Son of such veteran made it as a tribute to his father, which is praiseworthy, but as it quite typical for modern times Polish movies there are good ideas, but not much skills involved.
