    If I had gone into it cold I would have been asked to leave because I was laughing too loudly.

    I don't care that it's propaganda, I'm watching it!

    "Overlord" is available on Amazon now. Boss Lady keeps threatening to buy it.

    Propaganda films are in and of themselves of significant historical interest. They may have some significant production values but how and what they portray can be very illuminating. Such films as Alexander Nevsky or Triumph of the Will are classics in their own right and worthy of watching and discussing.( the latter is s bit long though).

    For Historiography class at Purdue I did "The Effect of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact on German and Soviet Movie Making". (Prof. was a graduate of Moscow U. and a film buff.) "Nevsky" was one of the nine movies I examined.

    Hi all - I originally posted under General Discussions, but just found this thread specific to upcoming WWII movies, so I wanted to throw our new indie film into the mix. Hope that's OK. We're an indie production company and have completed a movie, "DAUNTLESS," which will be coming out soon. It focuses on an SBD crew who are lost at sea during the Battle of Midway. We've got a trailer up on YouTube, if you'd like to check it out:

    I just watched T-34. And yeah, it's Hollywood... or, actually Moscow I suppose. Not historically accurate, but a decent film with good production values and a fun, if rather contrived, plot. Sadly, no Zombies.
