  • The 5 Most Watched & Enjoyed World War II Movies

    In My Personal Opinion:

    (1) Kelly's Heroes

    (2) Stalag 17

    (3) Battle of Britain

    (4) The Eagle Has Landed

    (5) The Longest Day (or) Squadron 633

    Now, Let's See What Your Personal Opinions Are.

    1.The Great Escape-I know that the Americans weren't really involved but it's
    a great movie.

    2. Saving Private Ryan-Best battle scenes ever.

    3. Band of Brothers-I know it's miniseries but it's still a movie.

    4. Cross of Iron-I would love to find this on DVD. Awesome movie if you can
    get past James Coburn as a German soldier.

    5. Stalingrad-German movie from the 90s in the original German with subtitles.

          Yep, them two. I was meaning historically that the true story of the Great Escape did not involve Americans. And I hope that you are not making fun of The One and The Only Steve McQueen the man was too for words.
          If you are, put up your Dukes! Thems fighting words

              Nice list but the first one is about Vietnam is it not? It is a good movie though.

                  I thought it was Vietnam as well.

                  Currently for me:

                  Cross of Iron
                  Saving Private Ryan
                  Talvisota (Winter War)
                  When Trumpets Fade
                  Stalingrad

                  Band of Brothers would make the list but isn't a movie. Great Escape I wouldn't consider a warmovie just because it takes place during the war. Kelly's Heroes is very cool but not a serious warmovie to me. You want anything set during WW2 then my list would be:

                  Band of Brothers
                  Saving Private Ryan
                  Cross of Iron
                  Kelly's Heroes
                  Talvisota (Winter War)

                    Speaking of WW2 movies, did anyone see "Days of Glory"? I just read a review of it and it is up for an Academy Award for best foreign film. The review said it was very good.

                      There was nothing better, when I was a kid, on a rainy Sunday afternoon than watching a good war movie. My choice would be:

                      1. Battle of the river Plate
                      2. A Bridge to Far
                      3. Tora Tora Tora
                      4. The Longest Day
                      5. The Battle of Britain

                        1.The Longest Day
                        2.Tora,Tora,Tora
                        3.Kelly's Heros
                        4.Saving Private Ryan
                        5.A Bridge to Far

                        Then:Band of Brothers, Talvisota (heard about it, but have not seen it), Battle of the Bulge (yea it's historically accurate, but I love it all the same)
                        For despite the silly sayings about violence never settling anything, history IS changed on the battlefield: ask the National Socialist German Workers' Party.

                          1. Das Boot
                          2. Saving Private Ryan
                          3. Bridge Over the River Kwai
                          4. Tora, Tora, Tora
                          5. The Big Red One
                          If you can't set a good example, be a glaring warning.

                            Nobody mentioned "Bridge Over The River Kwai" yet.
