    To get ready for the aesthetics in BFV I suggest Mad Max: Fury Road. Facepaint, female protagonist with a prosthetic arm and a sniper rifle and of course the inevitable desert themed map.

    Tl;dr: "hurrrr durrr".

    Thanks for your contribution.

    And what sort of contribution have you just made?
    It’s not his fault you don’t have a sense of humour.

    My contribution is pointing out the stupidity of a "joke" (maybe you should find your sense of humour too) that got old weeks ago. It's like all those people still saying things like "show me de wae".

    Hey, we get it: "there's women in my manly game, daddy!" - just deal with it. And if you don't like it, don't buy it.

    I actually thought the reference to mad max was pretty good, and not something i’ve heard before so it hasn’t “got old” to me.
    Mind showing me all the other mad max comparisons you have seen so I can understand how it’s got old for you?

    It’s just a joke. If you don’t like it, ignore it.

    I have a stupidity sensor I can't turn off.

    Oh, here you go:

    "All I really learnt from the trailer was that BF V is broadly based on WW2 and one of the characters is a Mad Max-esque bird with a gammy arm".

    "And the other 3 characters look like from Mad Max movie as well".

    "I see these guys running around with mohawks is Mad Max".

    "(...) a one-armed, leather trench coated Lara Croft clone is gallivanting across northern France with the cast from Mad Max".

    "Look like a bunch of misfits straight out of mad Max".

    "More like Battlefield: Mad Max".

    "If it was a Mad Max-y/Rage type future, maybe...what a day, what a lovely day!"

    "(...) cosplayer and a girl who comes straight from the Mad Max universe"

    "Mad Max customization in something that's not Battlefield Unthinkable".

    "I’m still gonna make jokes about how it’s Battlefield: Mad Max, as I load out my Furiosa character".

    "As colorful as an Nintendo game, starring one-armed Furiosa from Mad Max..."

    "So it's mad max meets steam punk era confirmed".

    "My only concern is when I will face Colonel Sanders or the IT clown or a Kratos cosplayer or a Mad Max girl..."

    Anyway, you get it (I think). Absolutely original!

    Just typing "mad max" on the forum search brings out 111 results.

    Lmao :D:D

    I now understand where you’re coming from!

    I would wager that it was much less than 111 people. Multiple comments by the same people.

    Another WW2 related film that's on limited release for one day only on 17th July.

    I hope it's OK to post it in this dormant thread as I think some people would like to see the trailer plus the heads-up about the film's release.

    The latest Dunkirk movie you have to not prep yourself for an action movie to get the most out of it. I personally quite enjoyed it and the suspense was terrific (the different times got confusing sometines).

    Personally I'd recommend watching and looking at actual footage and pictures instead of turning to Hollywood. Colour film of this Battle of the Coral Sea I highly suggest even if you're not a navy buff

    Try looking into areas you don't really know about. E.g. german nuclear program, French foreign legion etc.

    Other than that Hogan's Heroes definitely

    I might have to check out this documentary, would nice to hear a Rolls-Royce Merlin engine in a cinema, greatest sounding engine.

    There is a film in the works about operation Deadstick, the capture of Pegasus bridge at the start of D-Day, fingers crossed its good. https://www.pegasusbridgethemovie.com

    I’m surprised no one’s mentioned the film that inspired Castle Wolfenstein and the whole FPS video game genre as well as Quentin Tarantino’s film:



    Where Eagles Dare (1968)

    *Don’t watch the video clip if you don’t want to be spoiled*

    Other fun WWII fantasy films:
    The Guns of Navarone (1961)
    The Dirty Dozen (1967)
    Force 10 from Navarone (1978)
    The Sea Wolves (1980)

    Best Picture winners:
    The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957)
    Patton (1970)


    The “Dunkirk Trilogy”
    Dunkirk (2017)
    Darkest Hour (2017)
    Battle of Britain (1969)


    Audie Murphy, America’s most decorated WWII hero who plays himself:
    To Hell and Back (1955)


    John Wayne classics:
    Flying Tigers (1942)
    Sands of Iwo Jima (1949)
    The Longest Day (1962)
    In Harm’s Way (1965)


    Steve McQueen classics:
    Hell is for Heroes (1962)
    The Great Escape (1963)


    My favorite holocaust film which depicted the only successful prisoner revolt:



    Escape From Sobibor (1987)
