And here's one I know to be based on history, although I didn't think so when I first viewed it. Mount La Defensa my... I'm sure there's a lot of Hollywood in there as well.
But, I did see the documentary. I'll be damned, Mount La Defensa! At the time it came out, who knew? Certainly not I.
yes! Schindler's List is magnificent.
Great movie, but difficult to watch again and again.
Actually a love story set during war, but a great movie as well.
The answer, of course, is the greatest WW2 movie of all time.
Polish comedy "How I started WW2".
Could be, but I've never seen it. We don't get too many Polish movies over here.
Are only American war movies allowed?
No. IIRC Das Boot isn't an American movie. It did flop over here, until they dubbed it.
And MASH (the movie) wasn't about the Korean War either.
Seriously..... Then again, neither was the series.
On a final note, and I think its been said, Kelly's Hero's isn't a war movie. Its a comedy/heist set in a war footing, and to me a least its one that has a great cast and is hilarious.
As for my favorite war movie? Difficult to say, but since you've asked I would have to say Patton.
