Welcome to Smashing UK Productions’s Top 10!
2020 Episode 18: Top 15 World War II Films

Following on from our World War I video, we’re moving on to take a look at the best World War II films. Now, we previously made this list before back in 2014, however, we felt that it was heavily outdated and quite lacking, so here we have a more thorough and more expansive look at the 15 best World War II films. Bear in mind we’re only looking at movies, so miniseries such as ‘Band of Brothers’ and ‘Generation War’ won’t be included.

  1. Please bear in mind that we’re only looking at movies in this video, so miniseries such as 'Band of Brothers' and 'Generation War' won’t be included.

  2. Without even watching this..saving private Ryan and enemy at the gates..

  3. As far as my feet will carry me is missing in the list.

  4. The thin red line was terrible in my opinion.

  5. Watched come and see and I wouldn't even put it in the top 15.. I think your just trying to be different. Fury and Greyhound are two brilliant WWII films and to have Dunkirk at 15 is laughable, it's a brilliant film from start to finished. The older WWII films are nowhere near as good as the modern takes. There are a lot more WWII films which depict how the Jews survived by hiding out in the homes of gentiles. Strange top 15 for me but each to his own.

  6. What about Enemy at the gates?

  7. I saw Come and See. Ohhhh was it vicious. Excellent choice for number one. Watching this video on July 4th. God bless America 🇺🇸 🙏.

  8. I didn't rate Dunkirk, I was quite disappointed with it to be honest.

  9. Man, you people wouldn't know a top WWII film if it hit you in the head…..pitiful. Poor choices!

  10. Nice selection: but what you think about the “Tuskegee Airmen”?

  11. British soldiers at Waterloo: lie down to avoid cannonballs. Makes sense.

    British soldiers at Dunkirk: still lie down to avoid attack plane strafing? Let's see, what offers more area that can be hit from above, a guy standing or a guy sprawled out on the ground?

  12. The Peace Meditation Die Friedensmeditation. Old Lyran written as: Salome gam nan ben Urda – gan njber asala Hesporona! pronounced as: Saalome gam naan ben uurda gan njjber asaala hesporoona! English: Peace be on the Earth, and among all created creations! Deutsch: Friede sei auf der Erde, und unter allen Geschöpfen!

  13. Inglourious basters as an honorable mention 😀

  14. Dunkirk was loud dreary shit with a terrible score.

  15. I'm sorry, anyone is free to disagree, if you love it, that's fine, but… I… HATE… "The Thin Red Line"… it has got to be the most BORING film, I've ever seen, and it's 2 and 1/2+ running time just makes it THAT much worse… honestly, I think I'd rather face a firing squad, then sir through it again… I hated it when I saw it in High School, now 6 or 7 years later, I tried to give it another chance, but still hate it today, I'm sorry…

  16. You missed the Pearl Harbor movie

  17. Dunkirk is still my top tier

  18. I must add, I believe the 2017 film "Darkest Hour" is one of the most underrated, and one of the greatest War films, at least of the 2010's.
    It deserves more credit, not just as a companion peice to the film "Dunkirk", which inadvertently overshadows the film in question in any conversation, but as a standalone masterpiece, and as a sort of British answer to the 1970 classic "Patton".
    I for one, would much appreciate that the film receives its just reward, and approval from the wider war film fan groups of the internet.

  19. You forgot enemy at the gates, fury and the boy in striped pyjamas.

  20. I like Fury, T-34 and Kalashnikov.

  21. Please, Fury and The Hacksaw ridge.
    Any Jugoslavien movie. They desrve some respect

  22. Dunkirk deserves to be in the top 3 man

  23. The Imitation Game? Darkest Hour?

  24. Fury and Greyhound are both pretty good movies in terms of historically correct weapons, uniforms, and combat scenes…love them both…

  25. Hacksaw ridge diserves a spot in the top 10

  26. I would LOVE to see a Top 10 American WW2 films list, we Americans have alot of War films, it's sometimes hard to separate the wheat from the chaff.

  27. Fury doesn't even get an honarable mention?

  28. You forgot, When Trumpets Sound.
