This could become one of my favorite movies once I get a chance to watch it.

 

 

 

I watched it last night. It will not become one of my favorite movies but I still give it  :great::great:

 

Unlike the 1953 and 2005 movies which just covered the first few days of the invasion and the death of the Martians, this movie also covers the 5+ years afterwards. The Martian terraforming, which did not stop after the Martians died, has left earth barren which makes one character ask the question "you call this a victory?" 

 

There were three War of the World movies made in the 2000s but you may only be aware of the Tom Cruise movie. One of the other movies is a take on the Orson Wells radio broadcast but it's a breaking news TV broadcast. The other movie was so bad I've never finished watching it. Besides just being a bad movie they went cheap on the special effects. 

 

 

 

The Fox version.

After reviewing the lists posted I can re-list them but won't.

I will add a couple I did not see:
 

 

Sahara (1943) - WWII multinational soldiers in a tank lost in the Libyan desert looking for water and friendlies

but meet the German army instead; made as a propaganda film.
 

Flight of the Phoenix - wonderful 'survival' film, also set in the desert. With James Stewart;

who looks like he knows what he doing as the pilot; that's because he flew bomber missions

over Germany during WWII.
 

Great lists, btw.

Actually, it was kinda like watching a very long multi-map world of tanks battle...:amazed: Very Strange. I think I even recognized a few maps in the movie... like Murovanka, Westfield, and Himmelsdorf. Watch it for yourself, You'll see what I mean...

Well, I know this movie was posted several times, already, but I just watched it again for the third time, and honestly, it will stay on my list of the all-time best modern tank films.  

 

FURY

*And I think Brad Pitt {in his role as Wardaddy} does an outstanding job acting in this film. And I don't care what anyone says, he deserves ALL his awards and accolades. As previously mentioned, especially his role in 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood'.

The Unknown Soldier is the most successful Finnish film in recent history.  This saga forced us Finns to consider our long history of conflict with “the hereditary enemy from the East.”

How do you live and breath in such a tiny tiny safe space? Do you even have room to move around in it?

 

 

Jesus you are such a salty bastage. Tracers were used in late ww2 but not for everyone and certainly not every single bullet in every single tank and machine gun. Normal loadout for tracer equipped machine guns was 1 tracer then 4 normal. The movie simply overdid the effects for the pretties and the clueless audiences.

 

 

But you should realize that when a machine gun fires 1 tracer in every 5 rounds, it looks almost like a steady stream of tracers.

^..Interesting list. I especially like your choice of Léon: The Professional. One of my favourites, too. Jean Reno is an outstanding actor, and I think largely underappreciated in Hollywood. As a side note, Michael Peña also comes to mind as another underappreciated actor on the big screen. He did a great job in the film 'Shooter'.

I know this isn't a movie, but it's a great public service announcement from one of my little furry four-legged friends. Lets all remember to keep a good sense of humour, people.

I'm dedicating this film to the WHO {World Health Organization}.
