Film Reviews - War

Photobucket

War Film as definition per Wikipedia: War films are a film genre concerned with warfare, usually about naval, air or land battles, sometimes focusing instead on prisoners of war, covert operations, military training or other related subjects. At times war films focus on daily military or civilian life in wartime without depicting battles. Their stories may be fiction, based on history, docudrama, biographical, or even alternate history fiction. The term anti-war film is sometimes used to describe films which bring to the viewer the pain and horror of war, often from a political or ideological perspective.

As a pacifist at heart, it is no surprize that this is not my favourite genre. I usually refrain from watching war films as I find them upsetting, although I do have a odd fondness for submarine films.

Easily a genre of film I rarely watch or review, I did take a crack at discussing War Films as a Genre on Episode 30 of the Movie Moxie Podcast, as well as review Battle: Los Angeles.
