  • New War Movies?

    Anyone know of any war movies scheduled for this year? Last year was very slim. Hopefully this year will be different.

      There's Valkyrie by Bryan Singer, not really a war movie, more of a thriller about the 20 July 1944 assassination attempt on Hitler (release date is 3 October in the US)

      There's also Pinkville by Oliver Stone about the My Lai massacre, still scheduled for a 2008 release despite the writers strike.

      The most awaited though is the HBO 10-part mini-series called "The Pacific", scheduled for 2009.

          Yeah, I'm waiting for all three. It could be a nice year or so for war film....

            Hey, wasn't the remake of Dambusters suppose to start this year? Any news on that?

            As for the trailer from Valkyrie, it's everything I expected a Tom Cruise movie to be. It's still just the typical Tom Cruise posing in costume. The same facial expression. The same tics. The same maniacal stare.

            Pity though, all the other actors seem to be quite good.

              The last movie I saw Tom Cruise in, was The Last Samurai. After that, he got weirded out in my humble opnion.

                Tom Cruise as a sinister eye-patch Nutzie? LOL! Oh how far the boy from Risky Business has fallen.

                  Tom might be a whack-job..., but he's taken Dale Dye's course enough times for me to think he can "play military" pretty well....

                      Is Red Baron going to released in North America?

                      Looking forward to see Passchendale hope it widely released not just NFB theatres

                        That's interesting. But both are on WW1!

                          I think it's harder to do war movies about recent wars becuase of the often controversial politics involved. We just aren't sufficientl;y distanced by history yet, and the most recent wars are somewhat unpopular, besides lacking the broad scale of action familiar to us from previous wars.

                            I would like to see more movies done of the Revolutionary War.

                              And I'm waiting for the last of the Civil War trilogy based on the Shaaras' books, "The Last Full Measure".

                              But given how badly "Gods and Generals" did, I don't think I'll see it.
