Remembrance Day Must See Movies

Remembrance Day is past now in date, but I had to write this anyway.

That day we honored our Fallen and brothers in arms for all their sacrifices.  TV documentaries, war movies are as close as many of us will see about the horrors of war and in most cases it all has to do with our side and what our service people have been through, that’s ok.  But I have to wonder with all these conflicts there is the other side that is going through the same emotions, went through the same hell as our soldiers.  You read the daily news about North Korea and all these other hot spots in the world and it is a constant reminder that wars will not go away. Technology rapidly changes but our mentality, well ……   IT JUST DOESN’T.

So there I sat, not physically well that day so I was watching a couple of old war flicks as a reminder of the fallen. Some are very interesting movies from across the pond that you might not have seen before. Very doubtful these movies were ever made in Hollywood; they portray ordinary people, thrown  into a conflict that they have no control over, these people have the same 24 hrs, 7 days a week, they have families that love them, they are fathers, mothers. They hurt the same way as you and me. So I picked these movies to remind me that there is nothing glamorous about war on either side and I think these movies portray just that. There is a message to be learned in some of these films.

I had to share these titles with anybody interested in the, stories about the other side.

  • (Das Boot)    meaning “The Boat” in German WW2 flick .. Old movie about U boat Submarine crew, it was quite popular around 1980’s
  • (The Front Line)    North and South Korean War and how many died over a “hill”.
  • (My Way)   (must see) War film about what 2 soldiers went through during the time
Japanese occupation of Korea and then into the big war.

Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    • I think you would be limited to what you can do with a free site, spring for the small amount of money it costs and have control of your own site. You are right about too many options, but just pick a theme that fits your fancy and just make it work until you’re familiar with the whole system.
      Thanks for the visit.
