Welcome to Smashing UK Productions’s Top 10!
2020 Episode 19: 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 Now, we previously made this list before back in 2014, however, we felt that it was heavily outdated and quite lacking, so here we have a more thorough and more expansive look at the 15 best World War II films.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. "Come and See" is an incredibly scary movie. And the understanding that it was in real life and real people experienced it only increases this fear. Oh, my God, I don't want a war!

  3. i though this video upload on 1999

  4. Good list, with some mistakes. Biggest misteke is absence of "Apocalypse Now". And few more…"The Longest Day", "Battle of Britain", "Gallipoli"…

  5. Check out ,,ჯარისკაცის მამა'' so underrated movie

  6. Missing Stalingrad, but at least you have Das Boot

  7. I thought you would have put fury and hacksaw ridge In the honorable mentions at least

  8. The boy in the stripped pijamas
    The hacksaw ridge

  9. Not even an honourable mention for Cross of Iron?

  10. Best of time line
    2 . Imitation game

  11. Downfall best of best moviesss

  12. In the spirit of Come and See there is also Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975), Philosophy of a Knife (2008) and Man Behind the Sun (1988). Not for the faint of heart or sensitive people.

  13. And yeah of course when i watch this a war Game AD just appear

  14. Hollywood will never make a movie like Come and See. Great movie. I do not know if I would see it again, it is shocking. The Germans only went to Belarus to kill.

  15. I can’t remember that one ww2 movie when a lieutenant was assigned a group of new recruits and they found out about the big nazi supergun. It’s been bothering me that I can’t remember the name😅

  16. Tora! Tora! Tora!??? No?? 🤔

  17. Saving private ryan better than dunkirk?

  18. I waited for valkyrie but its not here

  19. Inglorious Basterds not on the list 🤷‍♂️

  20. I think some films are overrated because script logical failures and other things ignored but still it is a very good list and I totally agree with Come and See in the 1st place! Thanks.

  21. In my opinion German and Russian movies are the most accurate for ww2. The Americans usually just do movies and games about D-day and with their propaganda

  22. Stalag 17 for me is even better than The Great Escape though I love them both. Great list overall.

  23. "when trumpets fade" are also very good

  24. I love how one of the movies was made during WWII.

  25. Yoooh what about U-571????👀👀👀

  26. Я не ожидал что зарубежный канал поставит советский фильм на первое место. Но фильм действительно стоит того что бы его хоть раз посмотрели.

  27. Yall can someone tell me the names i cant look at those scenes yet because i havent watch them

  28. Great list! Sometimes I feel we Dutch the only ones who remember A Bridge Too Far? After Saving Private Ryan the perfect WW2 film to me!

  29. I would have placed Hacksaw Ridge at no.1 but didn't feature anywhere in the list why?

  30. The script for ROMA was written by Fellini while Rossolini took the ends of film from the studio he was working at to stitch the film stock together to make ROMA.

  31. What about "The night of the generals" by Anatol Litvak? I expected it to be included at least in the honourable mentions.

  32. The Tuskegee Airmen, Battle of Britain, Squadron 633, and The Memphis Bell?
