I am not a great fan of war movies but here is a list of special ones that can make you feel like a better human.
If you haven't watched them yet... Congrats, you have yet to experience a joy of seeing a masterpiece.
I'll try not to say too much about these movies; you can just watch a trailer and pick which one you want to watch tonight.
4. The Book Thief
This is a movie about pure friendship, love, childhood and death.
Even though that movie is really powerful, it's nowhere as powerful as the book. So I advise you to read a book first and then enjoy watching it.
3. Schindler's List
I'll probably never get bored of watching this movie. It is so emotional and kind with its super touching soundtrack.
Actually, it's an instruction how to stay human in a war, when almost everyone else becomes a heartless killer. It is really exciting for me that the movie is based on a true story. Plus, pay attention to the little details while watching it, cause It is a movie full of little "secrets". Almost every scene has a story behind it. That's something that makes the movie unique.
Now... *Spoiler Alert*
I want to share with you my favourite dialogue between Oskar Schindler and Amon Goeth.
Oskar Schindler: Power is when we have every justification to kill, and we don't.
Amon Goeth: You think that's power?
Oskar Schindler: That's what the Emperor said. A man steals something, he's brought in before the Emperor, he throws himself down on the ground. He begs for his life, he knows he's going to die. And the Emperor... pardons him. This worthless man, he lets him go.
Amon Goeth: I think you are drunk.
Oskar Schindler: That's power, Amon. That is power.
I won't write about it too much. I'll just say that It is one of the best war movies for me and I'm sure you won't regret watching it. To get the core of the movie at its best you need to read a story behind it...
And first place goes to...
1. Joyeux Noël
Britain, France and Germany..
The most breathtaking story about enemies, friendship, war and peace. It really made my heart melt. I've never felt so good while watching a war movie.
This movie is about greatest victory of humanity, kindness and friendship. Peace and happiness is something that everyone wants. It doesn't matter where and why you fight, we all want to live and to be happy, all of us have lovely people waiting at home. We are not from different camps and different sides. There's only one side and only one rule "Live and Let Live".
I saw Joyeux Noël yesterday night and it's the main reason for writing this MyTake. I am sure you will enjoy watching that movie just as much I did!
If you know any other war movies, share them.
And If you've watched any of these movies, tell me your thoughts!
