  1. The 50 greatest World War II movies by Time Out's icon

    The 50 greatest World War II movies by Time Out

    Favs/dislikes: 58:1. As Quentin Tarantino's outrageous men-on-a-mission epic 'Inglourious Basterds' hits our screens, we at Time Out (with the assistance of Tarantino himself) thought it would be a fine time to revisit that most cinematic of conflicts. Some of our choices are stone-cold action classics, others are arthouse masterpieces, but all are worthy of celebration. Sign up today!

    Filmography of World History

    Favs/dislikes: 42:0. 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]

    Real Life Horrors

    Favs/dislikes: 30:0. Original IMDb list created by Dr-Faustus. [quote=Dr-Faustus]There can be no fictional film that compares to the atrocities of real life. Some of these atrocities, abuses, injustices and crimes committed have been documented. Unfortunately man has learn't little from his past. Hopefully these films will create awareness and prevention in the future. "Only by acceptance of the past, can you alter it".- T.S. Eliot. This list is dedicated to all those people working towards a peaceful, tolerant and harmonious world, and IMDb for creating the means for people to do so, through film.[/quote]

  8. Criterion War Films's icon

    Criterion War Films

    Favs/dislikes: 10:0. The continuing cultural fascination with World War II has ensured that it’s the conflict most represented in cinema, and the Criterion Collection indeed contains more works about that massive conflagration than any other—whether harrowing dramas made right in its crosshairs (like Rome Open City) or poetic studies produced decades later (like The Thin Red Line)—seen through the eyes of filmmakers from many nations. But there are battle cries from other epochs in the collection as well, and taken together, these films embody a history of human combat, from the brother-against-brother bloodshed of the American Civil War (Ride with the Devil) to the trench warfare of the First World War (Wooden Crosses) to the jungle skirmishes of the Cuban Revolution (Che).

  12. CONELRAD 100's icon

    CONELRAD 100

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. Let's face it: That much touted American Film Institute list of a few years ago was one of the laziest exercises in modern list-making since Entertainment Weekly began publication. The average person could sneeze out a hundred films in their sleep and be reasonably assured of duplicating 75% of the AFI's stunningly mainstream cinematic enumeration. The CONELRAD 100, on the other hand, is a highly specialized and, in some cases downright obscure, round-up by and for the Atomic film connoisseur Many of these titles you may never have heard of. But that's what makes this list DIFFERENT, educational and, above all, FUN. Over the past four years, the editors of CONELRAD spent numerous hours watching and researching 300 motion pictures with Atomic and/or Red Scare/Cold War themes. From this collection we revved up the particle separator and painstakingly pared the list down to a clean 100. But unlike the AFI's collection, this list is not cast in stone. We invite spirited debate and submissions of Atomic tites we may have missed. CONELRAD will soon be presenting a fully searchable database of ALL three hundred films that we came across in determining the big 100. Eventually, we will repost a democratically elected 100, but for now we offer these films for fiery discussion purposes. So have at it!

    Paste's 100 Greatest War Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 7:0. War. What is it good for? Well, if nothing else, then a tidy template for cinema: conflict, clear protagonists and antagonists, heightened emotions, and a generally unpredictable, lawless atmosphere which—as per the western—has since the dawn of cinema offered an elastic dramatic environment in which filmmakers can explore men at both their best and worst. And make no mistake, the war movie is almost always about men. It’s the most masculine of genres, the fact that armies have throughout history often been almost exclusively male seeing to it that men almost always dominate these things. It’s a genre that emphasizes action and existential angst. It’s also a malleable genre, and one that could broadly include all manner of films that we ultimately ruled out of the running in this list. With this top 100, we’ve made the decision to include only movies whose wars are based on historical conflicts, so none of the likes of Edge of Tomorrow or Starship Troopers. We’ve picked films that deal with soldiers, soldiering and warfare directly, meaning wartime movies set primarily away from conflict, often told largely or exclusively from the civilian perspective—a category which includes such classics as The Cranes Are Flying and Hope & Glory, Grave of the Fireflies and Forbidden Games—didn’t make the cut. Post-war dramas, like Ashes and Diamonds and Germany, Year Zero, as well as films that go to war for only a fraction of the running time, such as From Here to Eternity and Born on the Fourth of July, were also excluded. Some tough choices were made on what actually constituted a “war movie.” Resistance dramas feature in this list, but Casablanca doesn’t appear. Likewise Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped and Sidney Lumet’s The Hill. It was decided ultimately that the war was too much a peripheral element in these films. On the other hand, while both western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and biopic The Imitation Game feature war prominently, they, like Casablanca (a romance with noir and thriller elements) plus A Man Escaped and The Hill (both prison movies), belong more obviously to other genres. We’ve also decided not to include movies which focus on the Holocaust here; those are set to appear in another feature entirely. Regarding the films that do feature here: our 100 hail from all over the world. These films were released as recently as last year and as far back as 1930. They range from comical to harrowing, action-packed to quietly introspective, proudly gung-ho to deeply anti-war. They are a diverse set of movies; they are also worthy of being called the 100 greatest war movies ever made. Published May 2017
