Will aim to squeeze it in later this month since the Academy Award Best Documentaries nominees is a list that I have been working on. :thumbsup:
I’m working on completing that list too, but man, last month really did a number on me. So many docs on ptsd, mental illness, child abuse, rape, end of life related depression, genocide and war crimes, etc. not exactly a lighthearted bunch of films to sift through. :satstunned:

I would live to see what wars we've covered, but as long as people don't write it, and the keywords on imdb are lacking on some, I'm guessing it's not to be.
Well, if I refine the list by Keywords, 'World War Two' is the most common keyword, appearing 65 times for 146 titles, but no other wars appear as common keywords.

Anyway, yep: tracking individual wars would be way too hard for me to do. :(

Here is a list of stuff that I could have included in yesterday's Fun Stats update and which I can include in the next update if there is the interest for it:

1. Total number of feature film viewings
2. Most common genres
3. Lowest IMDb rating
4. Common keywords
5. Directors (though I'd need to export the list to get this info, so a little time consuming, but if there is the demand for it...)

Oh yeah. There are certainly some really fun documentaries in the list (The Hellstrom Chronicle, Chariots of the Gods?, Mysterious Castles of Clay) but I'd probably agree about the majority of them being pretty downbeat.

1. 'Who Goes Next?' / 1938, Maurice Elvey / UK / World War I
2. 'Casablanca' / 1942, Michael Curtiz / 10/10 / USA / World War II
3. 'The Bridges at Toko-Ri' / 1954, Mark Robson / 7/10 / USA / Korean War
4. 'Mosquito Squadron' / 1969, Boris Sagal / 3 or 4/10 / UK / USA / World War II
5. 'Väike reekviem suupillile' / 'Little Requiem for Harmonica' / 1972, Veljo Käsper / 7.5/10 / Estonia / World War II

Veljo Käsper's Soviet-era adaptation of an Estonian short story from Enn Vetemaa follows two teenage boys who find themselves transported back in time to the era of Nazi control after crossing a river in a boat during a hedonistic riverside party. Quite nightmarish and engrossing in its sense of hopelessness and bewilderment, with its frequent focus on the faces of these youngsters thrown into a time of danger and harsh uncertainty. The greeny iciness of some shots is rather atmospheric and disorientating.

8. Culloden (1964)

9. MASH (1970) REVISION

Image

Between the disjoined, episodic plot and childish humour, MASH is certainly not a great film, but it is an ambitious project with a lot of interest to it. The overlapping sound design both reflects the chaos of war and makes the conversations feel more realistic. The Last Supper scene is really well done too, coupled against the memorable theme song, and the small moments like telling a priest that holding a clamp is more important than Last Rites resonate. The characterisations are woefully inconsistent though with Sally Kellerman's progression especially odd. The TV series did it better.

16. The Vietnam War: Resolve (2017)

I started with three episodes, the started rewatching them with my wife, and "Resolve" there is my first new episode of this miniseries. Consistently great stuff - great job at balancing the two sides (maybe not perfect, but better than almost every other similar-ish doc I've seen), and intermixing personal stories with historical exposition. That last episode made me (and wife) cry, and when I pointed out that was a way you knew it was good my wife yelled at me. :shrug:

Heh. True. But it was a lot more than that. It was a slow build over several lengthy episodes, getting to know the family. It was well placed and edited together. That last episode is the best of the four I've seen.

10. Duck Soup (1933) REVISION

Image

With its portrait of two nations brought to the brink of war simply by the insulted egos of its leaders, Duck Soup almost makes for a brilliant war/political satire. It is very funny too, what with Harpo and the street vendor facing off, the Seven Years Bad Luck style mirror scene and all the multiple Grouchos running amok. Not to mention Margaret Dumont's oblivion towards Groucho's insults. I would have liked more over-the-top jingoistic ceremonies and bits like Groucho accidentally shooting his own men from afar, but this is pretty great as it is.

I thought it was good - nothing great. Some great shots, some decent pacing and tension, but it did less for me than most of the war films I've watched for this challenge this month.

18. Kanal (1957)
This was a great tension build through editing and story. Not a happy film, but enjoyable and moving.

19. Rambo III (1988)
I expected fun action and explosions, and it was on the official Action A-Z list. And it was just what I wanted.

I've been busy at the beginning of this month, but I'm now going to join this challenge.

1. Hong hai xing dong / Operation Red Sea (Lam, 2018)

Conflict portrayedYewairian Civil War (based on the Yemeni Civil War)
BelligerentsYewairian Government vs. Rebels & The Zaka Terrorist Group
CommandersChief Secretary Mohadi vs. General "Madman" Sharaf & Sayyid
Other factionsChinese People's Liberation Army
Time periodPresent
LocationRepublic of Yewaire


Ostensibly based on the Chinese evacuation of their embassy in Yemen (an operation in which there was no violence), this movie makes the event look like a cross between Black Hawk Down and G.I. Joe, where the Chinese PLA kill thousands of terrorists and prevent a nuclear attack. It's packed with impressive action and gore, but there's almost no characterisation, so that when the film slows down I didn't know or care who anybody was.

4/10

Jason Mitchell is very good here as an African American former soldier with lots of intense moments as he finds himself treated as anything but the war hero that he is. His return home does not occur until around halfway in though, and the first half of the film is not particularly engaging, focused primarily on Carey Mulligan struggling to make it as a farmer's wife. The film wraps up on a reasonably powerful note with the Oscar nominated theme song rolling over the end credits; Rachel Morrison's mostly low-lighting cinematography is superb too.

8. The Nazis Strike (1943) - WWII
This is the second in the Why We Fight series. I decided I wanted to see this series because some years ago in grad school I saw Know Your Enemy: Japan, which was not formally part of the series but was made by Capra (with an assist from Joris Ivens!) for the War Department. I thought Know Your Enemy was a fascinating movie in terms of understanding how it built a visual and narrative argument about the Japanese. Anyway, like Know Your Enemy, Prelude to War and The Nazis Strike (the first two parts of the Why We Fight series) are skilled bits of propaganda. I'm not learning any actual history from them, but it's fascinating to see the choices the filmmakers make in building a story about fascism and the war. Perhaps most intriguing are the few outright lies. In Prelude to War, the so-called Tanaka Plan is treated as fact (the reason I had never heard of it before was because historians have long since realized it's a fake). And, really egregiously, Russia's role in the conquest of Poland is treated as a defensive action in The Nazis Strike.

9. Battle of Britain (1969) - WWII
I remember when I saw Dunkirk, I thought Nolan had come up with something really original by deciding to make a fascinating event extremely boring by removing the characters from it. And now I see he was just copying this movie, which is also pretty boring.

11. First Comes Courage (1943, Dorothy Arzner) - 6/10
--- For a Norwegian it's always interesting when Hollywood tries to take a story taking place in my native land. Here honoring the effort of the resistance in Nazi occupied Norway, with Merle Oberon undercover as a Nazi lover and Brian Aherne being smuggled into the country to set up a little sabotage. The focus is narrow and it works real well. What happens counts, Oberon shines and the story plays out the way it should. Real nice!


Image

12. Guadalcanal Diary (1943, Lewis Seiler) - 6/10
--- Guadalcanal Diary (1943) is a solid war movie. Not going to rank among the best, but with it's selected cast and decent dose of action, it's a nicely blended battle movie reacting the bloody clash with the Japanese on Solomon Islands in 1942. Simple a enjoyable experience with it's characters and action.


Image

13. 'Gung Ho!' - The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders (1943, Ray Enright) - 5/10
--- Walter Wanger was one of Hollywood's most powerful independent producers, getting distribution and working closely with the big studios. For the war he made 'Gung Ho!': The Story of Carlson's Makin Island Raiders (1943) using Randolph Scott as the box office bait. Sometimes his films were amazing. Other times it showed he didn't have a polished production unit like the other studio "factories". That how Gung Ho! felt like. They shot a war movie which didn't fully come out of its shell. Instead it felt almost like a war documentary in parts with its dryness. But in a way that also gave the film its identity. A certain level of reality. Randolph Scott was unspectacular in his role, but a lot of the younger gave it a good shot. Especially young and rugged Robert Mitchum the brief times he was on camera, for his 18th and final film of his debut year in Hollywood. A unpolished war film with bits of positivity sprinkled around.


Image

14. San Demetrio London (1943, Charles Frend & Robert Hamer) - 5/10
--- A noble war story about a crew abandoning a damaged ship, only to re-board and rescue it's skeleton into port. Not terribly exciting, but still a unique British picture where a ship is the main character.


Image

15. The More the Merrier (1943, George Stevens) - 7/10
--- Charles Coburn sets a love trap for no other reason than 'he feels like it', and wins an Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his efforts. What kind of film is this? You know the type of rom-coms Jean Arthur specialized in. This is one of those. Utterly charming. Her and Joel McCrea had such gullible chemistry that you can't not love 'em! The moment I loved the most was the "Newlywed Blues" scene!


Image

16. Happy Land (1943, Irving Pichel) - 6/10
--- A minor story, underplayed a little too much for the greatest effect. But the story was relevant for the time of war. The idea is simple. Set far away from any battle, we visit a remote town in the US, where a mild mannered family tell the story of their son. From the day he was born, growing up, first love, to the day he.... doesn't return home from war. A sentimental little film. Well made, well acted, well worth your time.


Image

17. Get Cracking (1943, Marcel Varnel) - 5/10
--- Get Cracking (1943) really comes alive during the patented George Formby end-chase sequence with the tanks! Other than that, didn't create too many laughs. But it was the usual charming Formby vehicle with his ukulele and big smile.


Image

18. Harvest Melody (1943, Sam Newfield) - 2/10
--- Sam Newfield making some War-escapism in form of a hick variety show. Bland, even with the gimmicks. I liked best the impersonations, but not enough for me to like this cheap PRC movie. IMDB says it's a war movie so I'm going to pretend that's correct since nobody is going to watch this to find out. :P


Image

19. This Land Is Mine (1943, Jean Renoir) - 6/10
--- A smirky ridicule of the Nazis from Jean Renoir & Charles Laughton. Didn't totally feel it as I found a lot of it ridiculous (or just too different from the stereotypes I'm used to). But I definitely appreciate it's message and the delight it took in delivering it!


Image

20. Nine Men (1943, Harry Watt) - 4/10
--- Nine Men (1943) were not enough to make this minor British war film entertaining. For the most part dull, but a few scenes stood out. I enjoyed the sneak-up on the Italian tanks and the rather ridiculous final desperation battle with the bayonets. Felt almost like a choreographed kung fu sequence!

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!

I'm not the challenge host, but it might be better if you make new posts, instead of editing this one. Maybe it's done differently at other forums :think:

Have you seen They Raid by Night (1942)?
It's low budget so it could be better

But I'll try to find Edge of Darkness (1943). That one looks a lot better

I'm in this also, but because I'm trying something new this challenge; watching what I want to watch chronologically and the first was an almost 5.5 hour epic it took me awhile to get started. So here I go.

1. Jarhead (2005) (rewatch): 9.0 > 8.2 - (okay I cheated and saw this one before I started watching them chronologically ;) ). What this movie does very well is showing the influence the Vietnam War, and all the movies about that, have on the expectations of these guys going into war. One of the most telling lines in this movies to me is when someone hear music blasting from a helicopter and says: "That's Vietnam music, why can't we get our own fucking music?" These guys go into war expecting to see a lot of action. That's also why the first part feels like a copy of Full Metal Jacket; the movie is building the same kind of expectations in the viewer. But instead boredom is their greatest enemy in a war in which the foot soldier became obsolete.
2. Napoléon vu par Abel Gance (1927): 9.5 - A masterpiece this magnus opus by Gance is this. That he didn't get to make the other films in the series he had in mind might be one of the biggest misfortunes in film history. The directing, the editing, the (new) score, the cinematography all is superb. I was surprised on how perfect the end with the three panels worked also, especially the last 10 minutes are so had my astonished. Of course one could criticism Gance for not painting a complete historical correct and very adoring portrait of Napoléon (alas we will never know if Gance would have corrected that in later movies), but this subjectivity is already implied in its title.
3. Les croix de bois [Wooden Crosses] (1932): 8.2 - Although this one is made two decades before it, this reminded my very much of Fuller's Fixed Bayonets in how they both portray how a group of soldiers experience the war in a humane realistic way without going into the ideologies behind their wars.
4. Went the Day Well? (1942): 7.8
5. The Best Years of Our Lives (1946): 8.0
6. Roma, città aperta (1945) (rewatch): 7.2 > 8.0 - Let start with saying that maybe the most important things about these movies was the effect they had in creating understanding for Italians and Germans by showing the devastation and toil they went through during and after the war; showing how these people were victims of the war as well.
Of course the importance of this in film history is because it (supposedly) started the neorealism movement.(Like most movements nobody knew it was started and happened at the moment). But what makes this movie good to me is how it really is a pretty classic but very subtle and well done resistance fighter story.
7. Paisà (1946): 8.0 - Rossellini depicts the developing relationships between Italians and allied forces during it's liberation. What makes this one better than just the sum of its part is, how with each segment during the movie the relationship becomes better. We begin the movie with mistrust and condemnation and we end with fighting and dying for each other. For the first few segments the way one experiences the movies alters on which characters the viewer identifies the most with, the American or Italian, in the last that doesn't matter anymore.
8. Germania anno zero (Germany Year Zero) (1948): 7.8 - Where both previous movies, in the name of reconciliation, are at times a bit too positive about the Italians, (Peaceful rightfully says in his review on Paisa; "If you went by this film you'd never know the Italians were allied with the Germans for much of the war"), this movie about Germany does show with the ending of the war the widespread fascist nazi ideologies didn't suddenly disappear. In fact it shows how a boy could still be influenced by them. Unfortunate Rosselini does feel to make it absolutely clear that's these are contemptuous ideas by having them delivered by a (pseudo)pedophile.
I liked this one a bit less for a few reasons: the overbearing score annoyed more in this one, the lightning was pretty bad in some scenes and there is a lot of expository dialogue.
9. Fear and Desire (1953): 4.8 - It's understandable why Kubrick disowned this. This clearly is a pretty poor movie. The directing and cinematography are the least of the movies problems. Kubrick, like many debutants, is very ambitious and not all of his experiments work. The production design is very cheap, but I could have gotten over that. What drags this down completely is the horrible writing by someone who has no clue about how people talk or act. Which isn't helped by some terrible acting either.

All with all; off with a very good start, let's hope this keeps up.

Double. This Netflix doc is about the US drone program. And holy hell did it hit the "horror of war" feelings well. This showed the sheer human toll of the drone war and just how indiscriminant it is. The part where they interview the Afghani family who lost 23 innocent family members in a drone strike gone awry was a particularly poignant.

On another note, holy hell is this challenge depressing. :satstunned:
