Default How About Some C&R Battle Scenes?

I watched this clip on YT and was pleasantly surprised at the gritty action and high production value. Just a really well done battle scene.


"The Flowers of War" Chinese vs Japanese armies. Especially interesting that the Chinese are using Mausers and wearing German patterned brain buckets.




Let's see some of your favorite C&R related battle clips. Preferably embedded rather than just links!

"Generation War" - REALLY good series, sort of a Band of Brothers from the German perspective fighting in Russia.


"1944" - Estonian SS troops fighting against Russians. Another outstanding battle scene.

I thought this might be an interesting idea for a thread, hoping perhaps folks might post stuff others hadn't seen.

I was wrong. It is looking to become a smoldering dungpile of sarcasm and smartassery.

Nevermind.

In the early 30s, Nationalist China and Nazi German actually had relations with each other and Germans trained Chinese troops and armed them with German weapon and uniforms.

Is Generation War on Netflix subtitled?

P.S. I noticed the older brother (the officer) is the same guy who plays Richtofen's younger brother in "Der Rote Baron." That movie was made in English and is OUTSTANDING. It makes other WWI aviation moves like "Flyboys" look pretty sorry.

Generation War is good because even though it is a German made series, they do not gloss over the SS war crimes or pretend like all German soldiers are perfect. The friction between the Wehrmacht and SS is also touched on.

Fantastic thread Bobby. Things were getting dull for me and I am sick to boot.
Now I feel better, I have all these great movies to watch now.

New thread rule: please post titles of movies with the clips. I need to make a list.
My wife is gonna HATE you guys for making her house rattle with machine gun noise for hours and hours.

Guns at Batasi

RSM to Bolshi MP: "I thought you believe in all men being equal?"

Bolshi MP: "Well, yes of course!"

RSM: "They had guns and we didn't. That's not very equal."

A truly great little movie

Yeah that movie is terrible but there is some accuracy in the Helmets. Basically, little known history, but the Nazi's initially corted the Chinese as natural allies against the British influence in China. They trained Chinese soldiers and provided weapons and equipment. Apparently it lasted well into the Japanese / Chinese conflict which predates WW2 by many years.

Another thing that comes to mind watching all these WW2 clips is the insane repetition of the what Janusz Kamiński basically invented for Saving Private Ryan. I remember because I was working in the film industry at the time in the late 90's, the formula for the look is a mis-timed shutter and then a weird film process that basically washes out the colors and emphasizes the greens and grays. The mis timing of the shutter makes for a jerky looking movement.

It's a cool look and Kamiński won the academy award for it, deservedly. But every damn movie about WW2 now has to have it, as if it was expected or required.

I just watched the first episode of Generation War and it is awesome! Lots of action, and it shows another side to the German soldier in WW2. Is there only 3 episodes??

Band of Brothers, pick a DVD. Very nicely filmed, the battles put you into it, very intense and gritty. I'm a cinematographer and these lighting, camera work and acting in the battle scenes leave me in awe. Watched the first three episodes last night with friends who had never seen it.

We just did a big machine gun shoot out of state so we were calling out each gun in the battles that we just shot in real life...MG42 (didn't shoot one of these but our MG guy just bought an MG3 we will eventually shoot), MP40, Thompson, Garand, M1 carbine, 1919A4. Too cool.
