The premise here comes with potential and Ian Carmichael certainly looks the part, playing a clueless everyman, confused about both the war he is fighting and army procedures. Carmichael is so severely lacking in the charm and charisma department though that it is seldom fun to follow him around, which subtracts from the attempted satire of how easy it is to be manipulated by others during war. The final third of the film is pretty strong though with some suspenseful moments as Carmichael is talked into a risky Monuments Men style plot.

16. Soldiers in Hiding (1985)

This Oscar nominated documentary gets intimate with an assortment of Vietnam War veterans who have chosen to live life "off the grid" upon returning home. One explains that he lives in the jungle because it "keeps me reassured", while another rues "I left myself back there" as we slowly see that their lifestyle choice is not as a rare as it might sound for veterans. If there is one thing to complain about, it is that the film is a little too brief. It is amazing though how they managed to locate so many "off the grid" individuals and convince them to participate.

And, according to the credits at least, the narrator is the warden from Shawshank!

Sounds intriguing. And similar to the recent Debra Granik movie Leave No Trace (which is quite good). I wonder if she saw this doc.

EDIT UPDATE: I did about 30 seconds of research, and yes, it turns out Granik was influenced by this movie.
A couple of Letterboxd reviews of the documentary commented on the similarities to Leave No Trace, but I didn't realised that the doco was a direct influence. And yeah, watch it for sure. I probably prefer Leave No Trace of the two films, though that mostly comes down to the very affecting performances. Both are worthwhile takes on the theme.

Previous conquests...Show
1. Hong hai xing dong / Operation Red Sea (Lam, 2018) 4/10
2. Legends of the Fall (Zwick, 1994)

Conflict portrayedSecond Battle of Ypres
BelligerentsBritish Empire & France vs. German Empire
CommandersHerbert Plumer vs. Albrecht of Württemberg
Other factionsAmericans with bear spirits
Time periodMay 1915
LocationYpres, Belgium


A beautiful, but empty, melodrama. The screenplay is awful and not only reduces Native Americans and women to noble savage and sex object stereotypes, but fails to convey motivation or emotion. The war scenes only make up a small portion of the whole film, but do contain one of the most absurd scenes, where during the Battle of Ypres, Brad Pitt gets so mad he takes off his shirt and uses his Native skills to single-handedly attack the German trenches armed with just a knife, and win!

3/10

3. Beruseruku: Ougon jidai-hen II - dorudorei koryaku / Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II - The Battle for Doldrey (Kubooka, 2012)

Conflict portrayedThe Battle for Doldrey
BelligerentsThe Kingdom of Midland & The Band of the Falcon vs. The Tudor Empire
CommandersCount Griffith vs. Governor General Lord Gennon
Time periodThe last years before the Age of Darkness
LocationCastle Doldrey, on the border between Midland and Tudor


Some questionable directorial decisions, but there's some nicely animated scenes, and the plot itself was always strong. It just feels rather redundant, though, because the original TV series told exactly the same story better.

Norman Wisdom plays a soldier here who is a dead ringer a German general, which leads to an amusing brief Duck Soup mirror routine late in the piece. While more episodic, the first half of nevertheless works much better than the second half. Wisdom and co-star Edward Chapman share great chemistry, yet they are mostly separated in the second half. There are also several hilarious moments early on as Wisdom clashes with an easily irate sergeant played by Campbell Singer (see above). Wisdom interfering his marching drills is especially funny.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

10. Ice Cold in Alex (1958): 8.0 - the best Carlsberg beer commercial ever ;)
11. The Diary of Anne Frank (1959): 7.8 - I never read the book to my shame, but it does help with my enjoyment of this movie in two ways. Firstly by not knowing the details of the story yet (of course I did know the ending already). Secondly by not being influenced in how well the movie is in adopting the book. Stevens knows how to keep the 3hrs running time compelling by alternating very well between character drama, war drama and some suspenseful parts. Although Millie Perkins is older than the title characters, she convinces as Anne because she shows the vivacity that makes Anne Frank such an entrancing character. It also helps she has Audrey Hepburn level of cuteness. In the acting department she is outclassed though by her older peers. But most impressive of all in this movies is the beautiful b/w cinematography by William C. Mellor.

2. Bimujang jidae / The demilitarized zone (S Korea 65) [Korean War]
Two children find each other wandering around the demilitarized zone and try to survive. You want depressing, Max....

Wish this weren't such a bad month for me to be watching movies. Last war challenge I tried to visit as many wars as possible (War of 1812 movies VERY thin on the ground). This time I'll probably settle for finishing up a 5-set or two.

Enjoyed reading through this thread, anyhow. Lots of stuff to salivate over.
What Regeneration has going for it is that it's about the WW I poets Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfrid Owen.

Gert Fröbe is excellent here as a conflicted German general, wanting to do his best as a loyal soldier but also weary of going down in the history books as the man who burned down one of modern civilisation's greatest cities, and he several solid moments as he converses with an ambassador played by Orson Welles. Solid as this core may be, the filmmakers bloat the film by showing all of the events surrounding this moral quagmire from all perspectives. The fade into colour at the end is excellent; good music too, but I would have preferred this as a smaller scale drama.

But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

6. 'Je t'attendrai' / 'I'll Wait for You' / 1939, Léonide Moguy / 9.5/10 / France / World War I
7. 'The Shipbuilders' / 1943, John Baxter / 6.5 or 7/10 / UK / World War II
8. 'The Dirty Dozen' / 1967, Robert Aldrich / 7.5/10 / UK / USA / World War II
9. 'Le grand homme' / 'The Great Man' / 2014, Sarah Petit / 7.5 or 8/10 / France / War in Afghanistan

Léonide Moguy's remarkable film of a short visit home to a small town and his sweetheart for a World War I soldier when his train is held up by bombing. The harsh yet very human interactions he learns of are both poignant and cutting. The vignettes of re-immersion and re-acquaintance over his short few hours there and the quiet oppressiveness of the settings are quite exquisitely lensed and so gently moving. Many thanks to whomever has nominated this for DtC. A truly compelling and touching film and so wonderfully and unobtrusively inventive!

That's all, folks!

I'm going to have to do a self-imposed rule of "120 minutes of short films counts as one entry", because when I binge-watch short films, I REALLY BINGE-WATCH short films. And it won't be the last time either. It would have felt cheap cruising past 72allinncallme with such easy points. The "60 min" rule is okay for regular folks who find a few shorts here and there, but when someone like me decides to watch nearly every available short films from one single year the points come too easy. Like watching TV-episodes, which is a lot easier because they don't burn you out or outstay their welcome like feature films does. So a fair play gesture. Or a over-confident one, as I've been on such a roll in this War Challenge this past week. Perhaps I'll burn out anyway before the challenge is over and regret forfeiting those points :facepalm:

Image

50. China Crisis: The Story of the 14th Air Force (1944, U.S. Army Air Forces) - 4/10
--- A decent documentary on the war effort done by the American's and locals in China against the Japanese aggressors. Not the most spectacular of war reports, but the dose of propaganda information is handled well enough. You definitely get the feeling things were going the right way even if the battles were hard. And that was the most important thing these on-going-war films had to communicate.


Image

51. How to Fly the B-26 Airplane (1944, First Motion Picture Unit, United States Army Air Forces) - 2/10
--- With all the "How to Fly..." short and extended wartime training films I've seen the last couple of days, I guess I'm a qualified pilot by now. Feels like I've been to school with these dry and theoretic documentary films. They get the simple and important things across, but even with Hollywood actors on board, it's still boring old school.


Image

52. Expansion to Air Power (1944, U.S. Army Air Forces) - 2/10
--- Information. Mostly information. Not nearly enough combat footage show. That makes a war documentary really dull.


Image

53. Ditch and Live (1944, First Motion Picture Unit, United States Army Air Forces) - 2/10
--- A lesson in sea evacuation for pilots disguised as a drama. Doesn't really help because it's still a long lecture. Hopefully they saved a few lives with this video, but unless you're a pilot, you'll have no use for this.


Image

54. Land and Live in the Jungle (1944, U.S. Army Air Forces) - 3/10
--- Jungle survival with Van Heflin and pals! For what's a teaching documentary on a situation I'll probable never be in from my safe home in cold Norway, it wasn't bad. They took the comic approach as they explain what to do and not to do if you ever get stranded in the tropical jungle, and the result was better than expected. Not a Van Heflin essential in any way, though. Just something for those in the war 75 years ago.


Image

55. The Fighting Lady (1944, Edward Steichen & William Wyler) - 6/10
--- War in full Technicolor! Won Oscar for Best Documentary Feature and it's definitely one of the best war documentaries to come out that year. Sure, it wanders a little with random in-between-battle footage, but those battle shots! Oh my God, those where amazing! Doesn't get much more real and spectacular than that!


Image

56. Kato hayabusa sento-tai [Colonel Kato's Falcon Squadron] (1944, Kajirô Yamamoto) - 6/10
--- The Japanese showing their confidence in the air through the spirit of their fallen hero Colonel Kato. Quite impressive in the air. The combat was good, at times excellent. Not as fun while on the ground, but it was a interesting take on the war from the other side.


Image

57. The Dawn of Freedom (1944, Gerardo de Leon & Yutaka Abe) - 5/10
--- This is the most human compassion you'll see the Japanese show during World War II. A Propaganda movie trying to win the support of the filipino people under Japan-occupied Philippines, catering to pinoy sensitivities with a kind story of a Japanese soldier helping a crippled child who was injured by those selfish Americans who occupied the land before them. Stars Fernando Poe (Sr.), the father of future mega star and Presidential candidate Fernando Poe Jr. (died before the elections), preaching the good word for the Japanese. Felt so odd. But I'm loving that this type of historical tidbits exists. It's like a parallel universe.

I'm going to have to do a self-imposed rule of "120 minutes of short films counts as one entry", because when I binge-watch short films, I REALLY BINGE-WATCH short films.
Well, calling you a liar would be the least accurate thing posted on this forum... :blink:

12. The Battle of Britain (1943) - WWII

The fourth and most boring so far in the Why We Fight series, probably because it's the least political thus far. Its message is mostly about heroic Britain rather than about shaping public understanding of the cause, which I think is more interesting from a historical perspective.

I'm also always fascinated by what the movies deliberately lie about (rather than just exaggerate). In this movie, there is no mention whatsoever of radar, and instead credit for detecting German attacks is given to "listening posts." There's even a shot of some ear horns attached to a wooden post, along with the hilarious claim that this system allowed the British to identify German formations before they even left the continent. I'm guessing that even in 1943 radar was so secret that no mention could be made of it.

Have you watched Five Came Back? Netflix docuseries about the five US directors who made films about the war and how their careers were affected by the war. They talk about the Why We Fight series quite a bit and provide a lot of context for it. (If I'm repeating myself, sorry - I might not be perfectly sober.) I haven't seen Britain yet, but I've seen most of the rest - and while I don't really "like" any of them, the Five Came Back series provided a lot of context that made me appreciate them more.

ICM
May Challenge: ImageImage
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!

Week 2 Fun Stats

These stats are accurate as of 9:45am GMT on 15/03/19. My apologies if you have posted an update after this point; your viewings will be included in the next lot of statistics. :)

I'm going to try something new this week and post my weekly stats in chunks by editing this post as I collect more and more data.

Here are the stats for Week 1 for those interested.


Participation

As we finish the second week of March, we have had 30 participants in the 2019 Horror War Challenge. That's 8 more than this time last week. And this is still the busiest challenge this month by a massive margin. I can't measure exactly how large this is until allison successfully updates the leaderboard for her Challenge, but I can confidently say that we are absolutely knocking the other challenges out of the water. Er, I mean the battlefields.

We have collectively watched 364 feature films for the Challenge so far (excluding shorts, miniseries and television episodes). That's an average of 12.1 films for every participation - almost as much as one film per day. And that's excluding shorts and TV.


Oscar Predictions

While the average film buff out there is wondering whether or not Steven Spielberg's push to have Netflix films excluded from the Oscars will succeed, here on the iCM Forum, everyone is rather keeping track of who will become the top 5 finishers (Oscar nominees) in maxwelldeux's Challenge Olympics.

72a is no longer a clear favourite to win, though he has remained ahead of PUNQ thanks to the board's resident westerns specialist placing a personal cap on the number of points he is prepared to accept from watching shorts. So, who else will round up the wartime Oscar nominees this month? Traveller are albajos neck-in-neck for 3rd and 4th and currently have five more points than any other participation. 5th slot is still up for grabs though with only six points separating max, Simba, jd and jeroeno - all of whom could easily snatch that coveted fifth spot. And who knows how many participants are secretly playing Invisible Man style?


Bonus Challenge

72allinncallme is still absolutely crushing the Bonus Challenge with 9 points. The next closest competitor has 1.5 points.

Please remember that in order to participate in the Bonus Challenge you need to indicate 'DTC nominee' next to your viewings.


Who has seen the OP screencap films this month?

Congrats to both 72allinncallme and blocho for watching King Rat. :poshclap:

Congrats to 72allinncallme for watching The Long and The Short and The Tall. :poshclap:

Everyone else: (u) :(

Genre Breakdown

The most common genre of film watched for this Challenge is War (obviously) but only 292 of the films that we have seen are list as War on IMDb (not so obviously). Next common genre is Drama (as expected), followed by Romance (rather unexpectedly). 65 of the 364 films are list as Romance on IMDb. Who says that we can't make both love AND war?

There are also 50 films listed as Comedy on IMDb, so a bit to choose from, max. Least common genres: Film Noir (1); Sci-Fi (2); Family (2). No surprises.


Keep 'em coming! Let me know if there are any other stats that you'd like included in the next update and I'll see what I can do. :thumbsup: NOTE: please nothing that involves importing my list into ICM since I don't have anywhere near as much free time this month.

Top 3 are all norwegians. I don't know what that say about us. Maybe we just want to punch Hitler really bad up here.

I'm going to have to do a self-imposed rule of "120 minutes of short films counts as one entry", because when I binge-watch short films, I REALLY BINGE-WATCH short films. And it won't be the last time either. It would have felt cheap cruising past 72allinncallme with such easy points. The "60 min" rule is okay for regular folks who find a few shorts here and there, but when someone like me decides to watch nearly every available short films from one single year the points come too easy. Like watching TV-episodes, which is a lot easier because they don't burn you out or outstay their welcome like feature films does. So a fair play gesture. Or a over-confident one, as I've been on such a roll in this War Challenge this past week. Perhaps I'll burn out anyway before the challenge is over and regret forfeiting those points :facepalm:
Nice gesture PUNQ :) And don’t worry, you’ll win this with or without your 120min rule. I simply don’t have the time to compete against you. I’ll just enjoy my two minutes of fame while I’m still in the lead :thumbsup:

Yay for my spoiler tag answering your question!

And yeah, I know the war comedies are out there... they just don't tend to be on 10+ official lists. But I will say mixing some films from the Action A-Z list has helped.

Genre Breakdown

The most common genre of film watched for this Challenge is War (obviously) but only 292 of the films that we have seen are list as War on IMDb (not so obviously). Next common genre is Drama (as expected), followed by Romance (rather unexpectedly). 65 of the 364 films are list as Romance on IMDb. Who says that we can't make both love AND war?

There are also 50 films listed as Comedy on IMDb, so a bit to choose from, max. Least common genres: Film Noir (1); Sci-Fi (2); Family (2). No surprises.
Yay for my spoiler tag answering your question!
LOL. :lol: But in all seriousness, the prominence of the Romance genre really surprised me until I looked at some of the films included: Casablanca, Cyrano de Bergerac etc. There seems to be a lot of war themed romance movies out there.

Something else interesting with the genre breakdown: one of the two Family films is The Diary of Anne Frank. Now, I haven't seen it myself, so maybe I shouldn't judge, but I would have thought that one to be a bit too thematically complex and downbeat to make for pleasant family entertainment. :huh:

Paralleling the rise of a German soldier to two Americans, this World War II drama looks at how the war changed the lives of men on both sides. It is a worthy idea, yet the film is far more interesting when focused on the German, played by a very nuanced Marlon Brando who dislikes the horrors of war and only wants to change his social standing. US soldier Montgomery Clift at least has decent character growth, even if his "terminal fool" clumsiness is overwrought. Dean Martin though plays himself and may have worked better as a side character.

My hypothesis about the romance/war combo is that it's an effort to balance out the depressing nature of war with something a little more sweet - and also makes death more personal when you see the people who miss the deceased.

Diary of Anne Frank, at least for me, was taught in grade school. I don't think we watched the movie, but we certainly learned about the story. It was a good way of connecting the story to us kids by talking about the thoughts of someone our own age.

31. The Message (1976) - 5/10
ICM
May Challenge: ImageImage
But at the bottom, the immanent philosopher sees in the entire universe only the deepest longing for absolute annihilation, and it is as if he clearly hears the call that permeates all spheres of heaven: Redemption! Redemption! Death to our life! and the comforting answer: you will all find annihilation and be redeemed!
