If you ever feel like killing yourself, watch The Human Condition. A 3 part, 10+ hour trilogy detailing a Japanese soldier's degradation during WWII. One of the most depressing things I've ever seen.

Some hate it, but I really like The Thin Red Line.

Other noteworthy WWII movies include Stalingrad, Das Boot, Downfall, Winter War and of course Schidler's List

If you want a riveting and compelling story line that goes against the so-called "Hollywood Grain" and really tugs at your heart strings, you should check out Small Soldiers.

I'm hoping Zhukov shows up and tells us about movies made from the Russians point of view. Good ones though, not some shit where they sit on a snow bank for 3 hours talking about their little farm and some depressing bullshit. I want to see them storm Hitler's bunker.

There's an old hammy propaganda film with Gregory Peck as a Russian, ended with him defiantly shooting a machine gun at a tank as it proceeded to wreck his ass offscreen. Can't remember the name of it.

You should include that movie where Hitler gets mad over all sorts of things like the PSNetwork going down or the Buckeyes losing a game or Kanye West interrupting Taylor Swift

In my junior and senior years of highschool several dozen shitty war movies with shitty gimmicks starring summer movie action stars came out all at once. I think I remember seeing this and Windtalkers back to back. And I'm pretty sure Enemy at the Gates was in there somewhere that school year.
The only movie I remember anything about from that spring/summer was the shitty Time Machine movie, and that was so forgettable I thought I had imagined it for a while.

Oh fuck I saw K-19 that season too. Jesus Christ what a shitty year in movies to graduate in.
