Personally, I prefer Saving Private Ryan. I must admit, however, that Fury is one of the most well done WWII movies of the last decade.

Saw it last week. I liked it, but wouldn't watch it again. Just because I can't stomach the horrors. They did a great job though. I like that they didn't make all of the characters as glorified good guys.

All the feels at the end though...

>Oh look, its this thread again

Last week's threads were initial opening night reactions.

The vast majority of people here do not see films on opening night. If they go and watch it a week later I see no reason why they cannot share their opinions as well.

A lot of people also avoided those early threads due to spoiler fears (and /k/'s lack of spoiler tags).

Saw it last night. Unlike any [American] war movie I've seen before. The US troops come across mostly as sadistic hooligans fighting fanatical SS troops with kids mixed in. The film is pretty brutal in bits, it makes war look pretty ugly.

Pacing crashed when they got to the woman's house though. I get that it was trying to create an atmosphere of tension and unease by playing with your expectations of what was going to happen. But it felt drawn out and was kind of unpleasant really.

I liked the combat scenes but the last stand at the end was over the top and unrealistic. It asks you to believe that the Germans couldn't flank behind a stationary tank and that, of the at least four you saw in the marching column, only two guys were able to fire a panzerfaust at the tank, achieving a single casualty overall.

THANK you. I'm getting sick of reviewers and people in general saying that this film was unfair to Germans as they are portrayed as being foolish or some other gibberish. What would have REALLY been foolish is if the Tiger sat in place while it couldn't see the charging tanks. I've also seen it said that they should have reversed, but that wouldn't have changed their situation as they still wouldn't have been able to get a line of sight on the attacking enemy armor until the distance had for the most part been completely closed.

He uses an StG 44 as his main rifle in the movie. Probably just one of those deals where he grabbed it off a dead German and likes to use it. I can't attest to how many people actually did that in the war, but I'm sure it isn't unheard of so it doesn't rustle me.
>>
>>23358330
They did end up flanking the tank, quite a bit actually. But I'll agree, the ending was a bit over-the-top but compared to scenes like the Tiger fight, they kind of had to do something a tad in excess. I mean, it IS a movie. Was the scenario at the end feasible? Yes. Likely to actually happen? No, but anything is possible, and combined with the fact that it's a major motion picture, I'm letting it slide.

You can read here, for an example of machine gun effect on tanks:

http://www.lonesentry.com/articles/ttt_attacktiger/

If tl;dr,

>(b) "In addition to opening fire with the primary weapon -- the 57-mm -- the AT unit also opened with intense light machine-gun fire which forced the tank to button up and in effect blinded him. His vision apparently became confused and he was actually traversing his gun away from the AT guns when he was knocked out for good.
>>
>>23360332
Desperation, maybe you can smash out some glass or something too. The sound is probably pretty disorienting as well.

I've heard tell of tanks crews being tortured into submission by persistent deafening small arms fire, though that isn't really relevant to the tiger scene.

>>23360332

I think they made a good point during the movie to show how loud small-arms are when they hit the tank, and how hard it can be to see when tracers/sparks are smacking all over the view-ports.

Also, I'm sure it's very possible to break/ruin a view-port if you mange to strike it enough.

Japan bombs pearl harbor and war is declared

Regardless. It's pretty clear that Germans/Nazis are the antagonist from the trailers. It just boggles my mind that America v.

Sounds like /k/'s earlier prediction of Saving Private Ryanberg Redux was spot on.

from Taki's Magazine:

suffice it to say that 15 minutes into the gross-out, porno-violent movie, I was rooting for Brad ... preferably roasted alive inside his Sherman tank.

The blood orgy was directed by one David Ayer, whose imaginative powers are on a par with those of a mosquito seeking blood. (Human faces lie around like dirty underwear, bodies are flattened out by tanks and become parts of the landscape, limbs and heads are severed, all in glorious Technicolor.) Pitt is the non-com officer who leads his crew into battle, taking on single-handedly a German battalion of 600, when all he has to do is walk away and fight another day.

Five Americans against 600 Germans; now, that’s instructive, because I always thought by April 17, 1945, when the movie supposedly takes place, it was the other way round.
Oh well, we can’t all be heroes in real life; some are only so on reel. What this movie needs is a bit of range, a bit of subtlety, a bit of talent, and a different director, different script, a different writer, and different actors. Otherwise, in its present state, only Dracula and ghouls will enjoy it. In fact, it could be advertised as the movie that turned Count Dracula to masturbation. But I’m being too hard on these “artists.” This is a low, dishonest period in film, with no class and certainly no dignity. Unarmed, unresisting prisoners with their hands up are executed by our American heroes, something that definitely took place and was done by both the good and bad guys during that terrible war, especially at the end. But to show it as deserved, a comeuppance, is a cheap shot that appeals to anti-German ghouls. No one, even among the bravest of the brave, wanted to risk his life two weeks before Germany surrendered, not even the Russians; but neither has anyone in modern Hollywood read history, so I shouldn’t quibble. Just take my advice and stay away.

Did this idiot even watch the film?

Its made extremely clear why 5 Americans are fighting 300 Germans. And why 'walking away' would have disastrous consequences. It also does not even slightly portray killing prisoners as a good thing either, that entire scene is disturbing. Or are they referring to the other scene where an SS officer who hung children for refusing to fight is shot? That is not 'anti-German', every other prisoner is spared in that scene.

It was estimated to be 300, and it's safe to assume that this was an exaggeration from a relatively green assistant driver who was stressed and panicked.

To be fair those were concussion grenades and not fragmentation grenades. Outside of a confined space they have a 2 meter kill zone which is pretty small. Inside a tank it would obviously kill everyone inside.

The shockwave passes through flesh and pulps organs. It wouldn't necessarily tear chunks of flesh off or disfigure people, but it will certainly kill them from the shock wave.

I wasn't really expecting him to look like a pile of hamburger, but I mean something to show that two explosions happened right next to him in a confined space.

Granted, I know nothing about WWII era grenades (did not know those were concussion by the way, thanks) but I would think there would be at least some sort of light marring of clothes or skin from the blast.

I'm basing this off of one of my finer moments: when I lit a pack of fire crackers from the wrong end once when I was drunk, and ended up with blast marks on my shirt and a small burn hole or two.

I'm pretty sure the filmakers were well aware what two grenades would do to someone's face in an enclosed space.

But do you really think they would do that for Brad Pitt? Of course not. Hell, they let his old assistant driver's head get blown off, a tankers upper torso ripped off from a Tiger, and a random German's head squished under a tank, but letting Brad Pitt's glorious face get ripped up? Unheard of.

Point taken.

Seriously, from a military/amateur historian standpoint I see basically no flaws with the movie. It nailed the aspects of the war, of the soldiers, and of war in general.

The whole point is that soldiers are human, and humans have flaws- like hypocrisy

To be fair the panzerfaust only had an accurate effective range of 60m max and was basically a tank grenade that could be thrown further. The panzershreck would have wrecked that tank from concealment had they had one.

This is the only war movie that has made me inadvertently "Yeah! Get those fuckers!" in the theater.

I like The Longest Day a lot, but it suffers greatly from a lot of the old school "hollywood-isms".

It's my favorite example of "Epic War Film", whereas Fury is now my favorite example of "Realistic War Film"

The WWII history course I took in college was slightly more in depth than this, but basically skimmed everything that wasn't related to Nazi territorial expansion. Then again the professor was basically in give no fucks mode and had like maybe a year left before retirement. Cool old Vietnam vet that cancelled more classes than anyone. Might have been mad because it was the only class I was really interested in that semester, but the complete lack of any sort of work/reading, easy as fuck essay exams, and ample time to do other coursework made up for it. The research paper I wrote was basically just a ten page timeline of the Manhattan project with flowery writing and redundancy to fill in the gaps. A-

Not that guy, however, it wasn't a bad scene at all. In fact it was one of the best in my opinion.
>Also a fucking working Tiger rolling out of a hedge
>UUUUUUUUUUUUuuunf

Anyways.
It showed a lull moment in the chaos of war, and the want of Pitt's character to return to a normal life.
Which was interrupted by the rest of the crew and reminded he is still in a war, still in germany, and still their sergeant.
That was the purpose of that scene.

The shelling which led to the death of Emma served as a end to the scene and to tell Norm that this is war. People die.

No, he plays his character.
A preacherman with a major moral dilemma about being in a war and the main gunner of the tank.
He frequently crys in the movie and the only time he is seen being a "tough guy" is when he's smiling and cheering after firing the main gun and hitting something.

That entire scene was great, the way you looked out and saw lots of dead GI's before the tanks started rolling made you nervous since you knew the Germans were waiting.

Then once you saw that a lot of the GI's were still alive and they got up to follow the tanks was amazing, the few that almost got run over was tense as fuck. It was an amazingly well done scene

I know that some of us believe that Milsurp has a certain spirit in it, in each rifle and that they are happiest when being used

If that is true, then that Sherman driving around in the muddy fields of England blasting at a Tiger, even if it was blanks, is probably the happiest its been in 70 years. Certaintly a better fate than sitting quietly in a warehouse collecting dust

Its a war machine

How is it a 'saturated genre'. The vast majority of war films are infantry, navy or air force. Tanks are cavalry and boss fights most of the time.
>>
>>23365621
There is no source because they did not destroy it. The Museum is keeping the Sherman in film condition until 2016 as part of a tie in display, there would be no reason to return it to display condition yet.

He did very, very well in this film. Some /k/ommandos may disagree with me, but I almost think he was right up there with Brad Pitt. Even if they disagree with me, I think it's pretty universal of people who have seen the film to think that he did a very good job besides.

My favorite was the latino, though.

To be fair the first kill was a surprise attack so it was 3 on one.

Must not have seen very many war movies, plot was hardly there, the final battle was dumb as hell and the characters were dull.
The first battle was well done and the Tiger was cool but the film was nothing special.
>>
>>23370016
The 75-mm M3 (the shorter gun) can do it, but only from close ranges. Knife-fighting, really. It wasn't ideal. That said, Tigers could be, and were, killed by Shermans using the gun in the war.

That having been said, it's somewhat of a myth that only the rear could be penetrated. The upper side hull, what you prominantly see resting above the tracks, was every bit as 'thin' as the rear, but without the reverse slope and with less coverage in the way to interfere with shell dynamics.

The gun that Brad Pitt was using, the 76-mm M1A2, could hole a tiger in the side or the rear from over a thousand yards. It's obvious to us that they were stressing the rear shot to add drama to the scene. But really, it's entirely possible that not every tank crew of the period had intimate knowledge of the Tiger like you and I have the luxury of having.
