    100 All-Time Best Movies for History Buffs

    Favs/dislikes: 56:4. History isn’t marked by years, but events. Being a history buff means looking at the way major ideas or happenings played out and how they had an effect on everything from politics to the economy. War, invention, discovery, love: the history of the world has been shaped by the way we deal with these things. The movies on this list are great ways to take a closer look at the moments that changed history. [b]NOTE[/b]: The list is constructed out of seven minor lists, as noted below: #01 - 13: Ancient History #14 - 29: Medieval Times #30 - 46: Exploration & Colonization #47 - 53: The American Revolution #54 - 68: The American Civil War #69 - 81: World War II #82 - 100: The 20th Century

    100 Must-See Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 1:1. It is always a challenge to produce a definitive list of “must- see” movies, because value judgments are, by definition, extremely subjective. However, the 100 handpicked films in this section have delighted, moved or educated audiences of all ages, all over the world. Over the last nine decades, these films have changed our perceptions of cinema, and most have left an indelible mark on film history.

  10. Filmography of World History's icon

    Filmography of World History

    Favs/dislikes: 45:0. Global in scope and a practical tool for students and teachers of history, Deanne Schultz's "Filmography of World History: A Select, Critical Guide To Feature Films That Engage The Past" includes description and analysis of over 300 historical films. A companion to Grant Tracey's "Filmography of American History," this critical reference book selects movies that represent aspects of world history from the middle ages through the twentieth century. These films adopt as their subject a wide range of historical events, people and societies of Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Canada, and Latin America. Over half of the entries provide extended analysis of the historical interpretation the film brings to the screen. "Filmography of World History" argues for the potential of feature films to teach us about the past and its reconstruction in academe and popular culture. The book provides several listings of the films, the one shown here is the cross referenced list by time periods. These are divided as followed on this ICM list: 1 - 19 Medieval (c. 600-1500) 20 - 50 Early Modern (c. 1500 - 1800) 51 - 95 Nineteenth Century (1801 - 1900) 96 - 286 Twentieth Century (1901 - 2000) 287 - 292 Contemporary Note: I have ordered the list chronologically by the years the films deal with within these groups using the years the author has provided. In cases such as WW2 films that deal with the same years, these are ordered alphabetically within these years. For more detail about the specific years and regions of each movie, check out the book and/or download this excel file I made: [url][/url]

  12. Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See's icon

    Guillaume Evin's The 101 Historical Films to See

    Favs/dislikes: 2:0. from the french "Les 101 films historiques à voir - De la Guerre du feu à Zero Dark Thirty" and expanded from the 2013 version "L'histoire fait son cinéma en 100 films: de La Guerre du feu à Démineurs". History has always made its cinema. This has been the case since the advent of the latter at the turn of the 20th century. The 7th Art takes hold of a historical phenomenon to restore it (rarely), magnify it or mishandle it (sometimes), revisit it (often), thus taking some liberties with the reality of events. From Prehistory to the war in Iraq, from Cleopatra to Napoleon, from the fall of the Roman Empire to that of the Ancien Régime, certain eras, certain events, certain figures have been brilliantly captured over the decades by the discerning eye of filmmakers from around the world (DeMille, Eisenstein, Kubrick, Visconti, Lean, Kurosawa, Renoir, Annaud, Mankiewicz, Tavernier, Leone, Malle, Spielberg, Malick, Cimino, Coppola, Bertolucci, Melville, Losey, Bigelow... ), while other moments have been purely and simply forgotten if not obscured. From The War of Fire to Zero Dark Thirty, here is an overview of the 101 best historical films, where we meet the intimate and the monumental, the derisory and the grandiose, the austere and the spectacular. Note: The book is divided in the following sections: Prehistory, Antiquity, The Middle Ages, Modern Times and Contemporary Times with subset sections within them. PS: If anyone can get ahold of the book, please send me a pm with the name of the missing movie.

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. The filmography of the 1968 book by Carlos Clarens. Also known as "An Illustrated History of the Horror Film", this was a seminal academic study of horror films, one of the first critical studies to take the genre seriously.
  16. Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema's icon

    Jean Serroy's Les 1000 Films Culte de l'Histoire du Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. University professor emeritus and film critic, Jean Serroy takes the reader through the history of cinema which, in 120 years of existence, has never stopped reinventing itself, going from silent to talkies in the early 1930s, from black and white to color, from small format square screens to the spectacular dimensions of ever larger screens, from film and cellulose nitrate to 4D. This book thus proposes to return to the 1,000 cult films that have marked our era and which, each, have punctuated the life of generations of yesterday and today. Hundreds of films from all genres and all countries are presented, decade by decade, according to a selection based on objective data such as the annual admissions rankings, in France and abroad, the major festivals such as Cannes and Venice but also on major celebrations such as the Oscars and the Césars or even on the notoriety consecrated by critics. So many criteria that have allowed cinema to establish itself as a new, unique and irreplaceable art.

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. A descendant of the British sponsored documentary tradition, British Transport Films was established in 1949 to focus a spotlight on transport as a Nationalised undertaking, to create an appetite for travel and to entice the public to use nationalised transport. Over a period of more than 35 years, BTF produced an unrivalled documentary film legacy for generations of film and transport enthusiasts.
