I love war movies! There are just so cruel, honest, heartbreaking and horrible, and I’m always surprised how emotinal they make me. So this week’s Thursday Movie Picks were easy, and I didn’t have to wreck my brain for these well-known movies at all.
This is always the first movie I think about, when I think about war, because it’s so great. It’s not only great in terms of character development, but also because it looks and feels like war. I mean, the beach sequence itself is worth every minute of your attention. But since it’s so well known, I doubt there’s anyone left who hasn’t seen this… I think.
This Quentin Tarantino WWII movie is different and interesting on its own. There is meaning and symbolism behind almost every element, and it’s definitely one of a kind war-movie. Though we get to see the more behind the scenes events, the lack of battles doesn’t make this war movie any less boring.
Does this one count? Yes, it counts because the whole first part of the movie is about Steve Rogers trying to get into the army, and then training for the army, because he wants to fight for his country. He is also my favorite superhero so, I could not mention this movie.
I’m adding these two mini-series to the mix because these are important! Both of these series are heartbreaking, and I binge watched both of these and I might do that again! There is a lot of focus on brotherhood, and the bonds that soldiers create when they are at war, but it also demonstrates how stupid war is, through bravery and horrific scenes were soldiers literally run towards gun fire because they are ordered to.
