There are a lot of WWII movies that are just under the radar — World War Two movies that have once enjoyed the spotlight but have fallen out of it, are as great as the all-time WWII classics people love to watch but just don’t get credit or recent makes that are actually great but just didn’t sit well with the audience and the critics.
1. Hell is for Heroes (1962)
2. When Trumpets Fade (1998)
3. Cross of Iron (1977)
4. Valkyrie (2008)
5. Hail the Conquering Hero (1944)
6. The Inglorious $!@!%!$+ (1978)
7. Red Tails (2012)
8. Heaven Knows, Mister Allison (1957)
Um, they had me until they included Red Tails. Red Tails = Glory + Star Wars. I'm pretty sure you can't do in a P-40 some of what I saw in the movie.
Valkyrie was really good, keeping me in suspense even though I already knew how it would end.
Hell is for Heroes is one of my favorites. Bob Newhart provides some comic relief.
