Historically accurate movies

Post by Gabriel van GrĂ«iser on Sat Jul 08, 2017 8:21 pm

Could anyone suggest a list of movies that portray any period of history in a historically accurate way?

(Sorry for any mistakes with english, it's not my native language )

I'd say Private Peaceful is accurate. It's about a child and his big brothers life in WW1. They both join the British Army. That's all I'll say. You may want to read the book first but you don't have to.

Little big man isn't really a history movie, but it's accurate with the struggle with the Indians and American Army.

Tora Tora Tora is one of the most accurate war movies I've ever seen. It may not be the most action packed, but they got every detail correct.

I've heard about it, but I have never seen it. How many stars out of ten would you rate it?

Downfall is good. I didn't like Jarhead that much, but it is still a good movie.

It's annoying when all Germans regardless of the time period are displayed as "evil nazis" (in everything but name) in Hollywood movies. A recent example would be Wonder Woman where the German Empire is practically Nazi Germany, another good example would be Night Crossing where the East Germans are once again, practically Nazis, even the accents are different. The "good guys" have British/American accents whereas the "bad guys" have German accents. I feel potraying all Germans as Nazis fuels stereotypes, especially in the US where most people can't tell the difference between a Russian and an Albanian.

Okay, the way the Germans were portrayed in Wonder Woman made me cry Sad

Those might have been my ancestors and they depict them as Nazis Sad

The German Empire in general is underappreciated. In most History classes all they teach about Germany is Nazis. Which is downright depressing for a country teeming with history and culture.

My Great Grandfather fought in WW1 and I weep when I hear them call the Germans monsters when in reality they were fighting for their Country like France, Great Britain, and Russia were.

The British, French and Russians were responsible for the same tragedy's as the Germans, just the only difference is they won the war.

I can confirm that Downfall is an excellent movie. It really makes you see the horrors of Berlin in the final weeks of the war...

The epic Liberation, consisting of five parts is pretty good.
It's about the eastern front from the russian side.
I have to say, it glorifies the soviets a little much. But for the most part, it's historically accurate.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EybVGOYcOew here's a link to part one. But you have to turn on subtitles. They're not generated so they are what the people in the movie are really saying.

If you don't want to watch a movie in russian,
Waterloo is pretty good

Stalingrad (1993) is a good one in my opinion. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0108211/

Zulu (1964) is a good movie about the battle of Islandlwana and the conquest of the Zulus. Also, Saving Private Ryan

I had exactly the same opinions on Wonder Woman they portrayed all of the German soldiers as evil like Nazis who had no respect for human life.

If you like African historically accurate war-movies, I'd recommend Zulu, it's quite the watch. Yes, it is from 1964, but it's LEAGUES more realistic than most movies out today. From what I remember from reading about the Zulu wars and watching the movie, the only thing that's not particularly realistic is how they portray some of the minor characters, such as Private Hook, who was portrayed in the movie as a thief and hoodlum, whilst in reality, he was a rolemodel of sorts.

Edit: Rip, I just saw someone who posted about Zulu. Sorry, mate.

IMO 1960's-1980's was the golden age of historical movies.

It was glorious. Now all we have are Pro-American sludge. Nearly all present movies either portray all Germans as Nazi's, or all Russians as communists.
Though, I do prefer Saving Private Ryan and Tora! Tora! Tora!

Saving private Ryan was a diamond in the rough. I hope Dunkirk will be similar. Also Tora! Tora! Tora! came out in 1970.

The danish TV series 1864 has a very reasonable battle scene which lasts nearly a whole episode. Since It was impossible to find online, I uploaded it myself some time ago, and made a few subtitles for it. It isn't listed on youtube to avoid copyright stuff but here it is.

Also I think someone said Enemy at the Gates was historical, it's one of the most historically inaccurate movies on the subject.
