Hey I saw Midway in "Sensurround"  (I think Earthquake was the only other movie to get this treatment).

ROLLERCOASTER with George Segal was also in Sensurround.  However, the theater where I saw it did not show it in Sensurround.  Hatred

There's one WW2 film I'm thinking of but can't remember the title.
Normally I'd post this in the "What Was That Film?" board but since were here discussing WW2 films...

The movie was filmed from the German perspective.
It had a few German kids in it and they're informed that the Allies will probably be breaking through their area at any time.
They set up a defense.

It would've been an 80's or 90's film.
That's all I know.

I haven't seen it, but I've read about it.
Anyone know what WW2 movie that is?




I'm pretty damn sure its Die brucke except that it is an old b/w film. They mention a 2008 remake, though. I saw it a few years ago, found it very good although it took a while to start.

As for me, my favourite WWII films have already been mentioned. I'd say the absolute best of them are the extended version of The big red one, The thin red line and Enemy at the gates.

But often I'd settle for lesser films with higher entertainment value, such as Where eagles dare, Saving private Ryan or even U-571. Hell, even I found The battle of the Bulge tons of fun.

That's it!  Thanks a lot!   Thumbup
For some reason I was thinking this was a more recent film.
I'll have to check Netflix to see if it's available on DVD.


Another good WW2 film is A Midnight Clear.
That's the one about the platoon of American soldiers set during Christmas in the Ardennes Forest.
They come upon a group of German soldiers who want to surrender but they all have to make it look like the Germans put up a fight (a fake skirmish) or else their families will be killed by the Nazis.
Needless to say, things don't go as planned.

One of my favorite TV shows in the 60's was Combat! starring B movie veteran, Vic Morrow.

Did anyone mention Escape From Sobibor with Rutger Hauer and Alan Arkin? It's about an uprising and escape from a Concentration Camp. It's based on the true story and it's really good.

What about the worst ones?  TeddyR

My votes are for "Escape to Athena" (it has Roger Moore playing a Nazi officer) and "Sergeant Steiner", an ill-advised sequel to Sam Peckinpah's "Cross of iron".

It's about the battle of Hurtgen Forest along the Siegfried line.
  I haven't seen that since i was about 16,i do remember that one to be very good thats the one where they cant pass the dragon teeth laid out by germany,i do remember a good sense of hopelessness conveyed in that one

Yes, When trumpets fade is a very good one too. I got it together with The thin red line for just a few bucks, and didn't expect it to be that good. If they only had had a bigger budget for the battle scenes it would be a modern classic. I found it to be even better than Hamburger Hill, a Vietnam film by the same director which seems to have some cult following out there.

I'm posting again because I just saw Castle Keep, starring Burt Lancaster and Peter Falk. I think it belongs to this thread, even if it is a damn weird movie. It's about a bunch of American soldiers who settle in a Belgium castle and spend the time doing absurdities and getting laid at the local brothel until they end up caught in the battle of the Bulge.

The weird thing about it's the tone and the dialogs. It's almost as if the whole thing had started as a straight story and then somebody laced everybody's catering with LSD. It has some great battle scenes in the second half, but the rest of the movie comes accross as a sort of literate version of Kelly's heroes.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
