Even the new "Taken" movie, which was pretty emotionally powerful didn't make me teary eyed, despite it's very solumn and sobering content.
Yhe its a great move about Australian & British battles during world war one.
i rember when this movie came out all the news reports on t.v & magazines talking about how the USA has tryed to put itself in another famous war victory when the fact is the USA was not even there.
Just like other U.S made movies where there were NO Americans at the real event, because they were chicken shiit.
most of Americas war movies, the USA was not even at the battle in question.
It's just American propaganda & thievery.
The Great Escape ........ based on the events of Australian solders.
U-571 ....... U-571 purports to tell the story of how the USA recovered Germany's secret Enigma codes.
The USA was not even involved ........ it was all the British.
The USA is embarrassed by its inability to do anything in either world war & it thinks if it put out these movies the American people will belive the propaganda,
& belive the USA is a great nation, ( which we all know it aint ) its a 3erd world nation at best.viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1061
