    Alexander Nevsky was probably one of the greatest propaganda films to come out of eastern Europe. Influential enough even today...watch it and listen to the music during the big battle. James Horner practically used it for the Battle of Stirling in Braveheart.

        I'd put more credit with the Soviet tanker than any political officer. Patriotic posters don't kill Tiger tanks but the T-34/85 bagged a few.

          with no political officers, how would a soldier know where and who is an enemy?

            They're the ones in a different uniform going out of their way to kill you.

              but for some like the Vlassovtsy it wasn't so clear...

                It depends on the quality of the movie. If it's very good I'll give it a lot of wiggle room. If it's average, I may criticize it a little. If it's bad I'll rip into it. If it's so bad that it's hilarious (Plan 9 from outerspace) then I'll be more lenient. If it's so bad that it dives right down into the abyss of awfulness from which none may escape; then I'm probably going to post a long rant on how bad it was somewhere once I recover from the suckiness induced shock.
                Standing here, I realize you were just like me trying to make history.
                But who's to judge the right from wrong.
                When our guard is down I think we'll both agree.
                That violence breeds violence.
                But in the end it has to be this way.

                  U-571 and Memphis Belle.
                  and JFK.


                  I agree that U-571 was a joke. I don't care that Mathew McConaughey is from Austin, Texas. The film was still horrible
