WAR Movies : A Retrospect

War has always been an integral part of mankind; we just cannot stay without it.
Early 40’s & late 70’s movies have often exploited this theme & more often romanticized the aspect of war. With time movies became more rational, even aggravated to show the horrors which left behind its mark on the entire generations, who lived through some of the bloodiest conflict known to man.
For years now I had been thinking to spend some time on movies which dealt with this subject, be it the two world wars or as early as the colonial conflicts.
It took some time to make a record of some of the most notable war movies of all time. I have handpicked couple of them & hope it will take an entire month to watch it. There is no self imposed time frame to upload the reviews but hope that after every screening I would be able to share some afterthought.


  1. Sounds intriguing. I can't wait to see what comes next. Looks like you have a lot of work cut out for you.

  2. I found this blog really interesting and informative,A popular sub genre war films in the 1950s and '60s was the prisoner of war film. This was a form popularised in britain.
