Favorite TV (it was a special so I don't know if I'd call it that but meh) show:



GENERATION WAR

Deals with WW2 from the perspective of a group of German friends. Two are soldiers, one is a popular singer in Germany, another is a nurse on the Eastern front and the last is a Jew who escapes the train to the concentration camps and joins the Polish resistance. Very well done and incredibly accurate for a from the German perspective attempt.



LES MISÉRABLES

Incredibly well done musical, but I actually like the cinematic rendition more than the original cast. The only movie that ever made me shed a few tears in compassion for the characters, it deals with a poor man who steals a simple loaf of bread to feed his family. He escapes prison and evades the police, eventually adopting a new identity and becoming a wealthy business man. Sadly one of the employees under him dies, leaving her daughter without a parent and she asks him to take care of her since his firing her lead to her eventual death (long story). He then travels to Paris, evading the police where the daughter matures and meets a young man who's involved in the French revolution. Long story short they fall in love and the a bunch of other things happen but I am spoiling it :D amazing movie, maybe my favorite.



PHANTOM OF THE OPERA

Original London cast or GTFO. Possibly one of the most powerful male performances I've personally ever experienced in a musical. Everyone else is good, but the guy who played the phantom stole the show and I forget his name atm. I think its available on Netflix and you could probably find it on the internet or even YouTube if you dig deep enough.

SOUNDTRACK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGFe3xKBIJQ&list=PLzkAkxsFfLB5Yik3iOwihFtnrWhZml9hN

^Very recommended, listening to it as I write this.

It follows the adventures of a young rising star in Paris, Christine as her opera career takes off but a deformed man who lives in the opera house basement (or something like that) falls in love with her, declaring himself the 'Angel of Music' and that he gives her special powers. The Phantom falls in love with Christine and tries to make her fall in love with her in love, but while at first Christine's heart is captured by the mystery and amazing powers[/b] of the Phantom she falls in love with another man and a friend from her childhood, angering the Phantom into becoming violent and trying to not only kidnap Christine but kill her lover as well.

This thread seems overflowing with war-related movies, TV-series. Well it was expected in this site. But I find most of the above mentioned war-related films rubbish - nothing more that crappy action.

Up to today nothing has beaten The Pacific - mini series: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0374463/
And Band of Brothers - mini series: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0185906/

Hacksaw Ridge and Unbroken are great War-Drama movies as well.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2119532/

All quiet on Western Front has been always been a movie to watch: the 1930 and 1979 adaption and comparing and understanding why they are so different while both based on same book.

From more Hollywoodish approach, but still great storytelling: not war, but highly related

not at all. there are comedies, dramas, documentaries, historical themed movies, animes and even musicals mentioned.

Im not sure what you are referring to, but hacksaw ridge hits the standards of a crappy action splatter movie pretty well. be aware of hilariously violent content:

All of them are entertaining. The main characters are played by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.


  • James Bond films


They are action films. They're worth watching.

Edit:

  • The Dictator (2012)
  • The Matrix (film series)

For warmovies I really liked


- Die Brücke: a German antiwar film. It follows some young Germans guys at the end of the war. Due To nazipropaganda they decide to join the army and fight for glory. It is mainly about how their minds are twisted by the propaganda and how their thoughtproces goes.

-stalingrad (1993): make sure you watch the movie from 1993 and not 2013. Not surprisingly this movie is about the battle of Stalingrad. But I found that it, unlike many warfilms, doesn't glorify the soldiers and their actions. Instead it shows how horrible the situation in Stalingrad was.




Another movie I watched not too long ago was train to Busan. It is a Korean movie about an apocalypse similar to a zombie apocalypse. But unlike it's American counterparts it isn't all about action and killing zombies. It has a nice combination of story and action with realistic characters. It is one of the best apocalypse films I've seen.

-Hacksaw Ridge was incredible, along with other war movies like Band of Brothers, Unbroken, Saving Private Ryan(best one probably ever).

I just recently watched Allied, it was very interesting and had literally almost tearing up at end(and I never really cry during movies)

I also recently watched The Accountant with Ben Afflack- made no sense to me, I do not recommend it.

The Book Thief is a very good one as well, it is about a German family in WWII who take a Jew from Stuttgart and hide him in his basement and is told from the very interesting perspective of Death(The book was incredible, but long, but the movie was good as well).

Also these movies are awesome as well-

Star Wars- A New Hope
Star Wars- Empire Strikes Back
Star Wars- Return of the Jedi
Star Wars- Phantom Menace
Star Wars- Attack of the Clones (CGI sucks but still important in series)
Star Wars- Revenge of the Sith
Star Wars- The Force Awakens
Star Wars- The Last Jedi(Coming out in December 2017)

I tend not to watch too much TV/movies, so my arsenal is limited, but I can suggest a few.

Movies:
Inception (my favorite movie ever)

The Road (not the best movie, but it's still good, and very underrated in my opinion)

The Revenant (I would suggest reading the book, which is also amazing)

Fistful of Dollars

TV shows:
Breaking Bad (the best show out there in my opinion. Not just an amazing story, but everyone involved is incredibly talented)

Better Call Saul (spinoff of Breaking Bad--somewhat slow-paced and not much action, but a great show nonetheless.)

Lost

Hell on Wheels

The Blacklist (the show I'm currently watching, if anyone spoils it I will end you)

Person of Interest (has its fair share of cheesy moments, but is still an amazing show)

Lie to Me (I lost interest in this particular show, but tons of other people like it)
