  • Favorite Movie/Film Battle?

    Greeting's All,

    There's every likelihood that this question has been posed many time's over on the forum...but since I'm kind of still new I'll ask. What was/is Your all time favorite movie battle scene? (or scene's)

    So many personal favorite's spring to mind from the battle of Hoth (Star Wars-The Empire Strike's Back) to the battle of Stirling (Braveheart)

    If I have to choose 2, it would be the battle in Germania (Gladiator) The Roman's "Unleash hell" upon the Barbarian horde's with Catapult's, Ballista and a hail of arrow's The Legion's close in and Russel Crowe prove's that You can lead a Cavalry charge through thick forest to suprise Your Enemie's at Their rear

    And while not overly impressed (as a lifetime fan of the book's) with the LOTR movie's, I did enjoy the battle scene's.

    Notably the charge of the Rohirrim at the Pelennor field's. There's nothing quite like a mass Cavalry charge I especailly like the part when the Rohirrim wheel around and charge straight at the line of Mumakil.

      Knave! you beat me to the punch!

      I would have to add Serenity's battle above Ion Land, that was probably one of the most epic space battles ever but we hardly see it.

          Good call, that one's in My top 5 I still remember watching that for the first time at the cinema. Me and My Brother were on the edge of Our seat's and BOB still stand's as My favorite tv serie's ever.

            In no particular order of preference:

            1. Patton taking on the German Army in Tunisia, whom he believes is being personally lead by Rommel, in 'Patton.'

            2. The South Wales Borderers singing 'Men of Harlech' while the entire Zulu Nation sings its war songs than charges the British lines in 'Zulu.'

            3. All of the battle action scenes between the 101st Airborne and the German Army during the seige of Bastogne in 'Battleground.'

            4. The Continentals and the British Army formed in opposing ranks and blowing the crap out of each other in 'The Patriot.'

            5. The 10th Colonial Paratroop Regiment being ambushed in the their vehicles by the fellagha, then defeating the ambush, in 'Lost Command.'

            When I can think of another 5 I'll post them.

            Cheers,
            Dan.

              All the battle scenes in Gettysburg, but especially Pickett's charge. The scenes in Master & Commander were good as well, as were the action scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

                Great scene, except that was Noricum or Pannonia, not Germania. It was the final defeat of the Marcomanni, for whom I always cheer

                Favorite battle scenes in movies? The battle scene with the carts in Mongol (altho' Genghiz loses, he's not out); the battle of the crater at the beginning of Cold Mountain (rest of the film sucks); John Wayne's final battle in The Alamo; but the best is Jackson's charge at Chancellorsville in Gods and Generals.

                  Yes, the Chancellorsville charge was good...forgot about that one, as I haven't seen Gods & Generals in awhile!

                    Then it's been too long! Watch it tonight! I really like it for several reasons, foremost among them is that I live in Fredericksburg and love the place.

                      I'll probably wait for tomorrow night, as I'm already getting sleepy tonight and I won't have time tomorrow during the day. Besides, I need to have tissues handy when I watch it, as I always shed tears when Stonewall passes on. (Call me sentimental, but there you go.)

                        Sounds good. If you ever get a chance, stop by Guinea Station. They have a great tour there (about the only good one the NPS does in this area).

                          The leadership issues were always the most interesting part to me.




                          I'm glad that the PTO is finally getting ample attention in Hollywood too.

                            There have been some very good ones metioned already. I will add this as one of my favorites (it is difficult to pick only one):

                            "War is sorrowful, but there is one thing infinitely more horrible than the worst horrors of war, and that is the feeling that nothing is worth fighting for..."

                              I recently went to the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center with my girlfriend...they didn't have too many artifacts and what not, but getting up close to two Napoleon cannons was the highlight of the visit!
