But how do I know you're real?
PS: My lawyer will be in contact with you shortly regarding the grievous mental harm you've caused me.
Always glad to help out a shipmate.
Oh, look. Amazon is showing "Mutant Chronicles"!
It's still not as vicious as the election coverage.
Game of Thrones vs. Game of Thorns.
I've gone back to the John Wayne movies. Right now I'm watching "The Fighting Seabees" (1944) and laughing at how poor the Japanese are portrayed. They're not even using a real language, just babble. They have M1919 machine guns and this 'tanks' I'm guessing is a Chi-Ro Type 89, but fails horribly. While certainly not bad or the worst, I do laugh at it.
Not a WWII film!
Good choice. I remember watching this and cringing throughout. Historiography applies here, you'll learn a bit about the ignorance most Americans of that time had about the Japanese, and what would pass for "special effects" back then.
I agree. A lot of the other movies such as Flying Tigers also cemented them. When I was little, I thought it was funny, but grown up-I shake my head and say, 'Stuff like this wouldn't fly in our modern movies.'
I watched it a couple of weeks ago. I loved it! The actors play it straight. The effects are not horrible (not good mind you, just not horrible). There's a whole slew of WWII shlock movies out there from Zombie Lake to Rayne of Blood IV (Vampires take over the SS) to the original Isla She Wolf of the SS. Let's agree that they are all bad, but some of them can be pretty funny and cool.
WE HAVE A WINNER!
I've never had the stomach to watch this all in one sitting, it's that dreadful. It's just so woefully ridiculous, I can't remember the last time I watched something so bad.......maybe "Battlefield Earth"?
Out of curiosity, I searched for the trailer on YouTube....Thats 2:10 of my life I'll never get back....
I quite enjoyed it, actually.
Big dissapointment was "My honor was loyalty": My Honor Was Loyalty (2016) - IMDb
Boring, bad acting, dull scenery
And for those looking for something a bit different:
Fun movie about Nazi Zombies: Dead Snow (2009) - IMDb
Bad movie about Nazi Zombies: Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead (2015) - IMDb
The Saints and Soldiers movies ranged from good to meh, the first Saints and Soldiers was the best, the Void was okay, and Airborne Creed was meh. The tank fighting in the Void was pretty good I though, and the firefights in the first saints and Soldiers were good as well. Airborne Creed was a more character focused movie to me.
Yes one of the best of the worst.
Embrace the Suck: The 5 Worst War Movie Sequels
Very much the same with "Das Boat 2", a TV series so very different from the Petersen classic which arrived using the name of the 1980's classic series and movie but which in fact was totally unrelated to it in every way possible.
Was it " bad", well to me it was average, very average. (It is best to leave good movies alone a rare exception being "The Godfather 2" ).
Possibly already mentioned, "The Battle of the Bulge" at times painful to watch, terrible stereotypes, awful lines, daft storyline, rigid stiff acting and the odd decent actor who could have done better had the script been better written.
