Hey Michelle you're a movie buff can you recommend me a good war film from the perspective of civilians??? I'm looking for something like Snowpiercer except as a critique of imperialism instead of capitalism (or both). I'm sick of all these war films about how soldiers get PTSD from murdering people

Come and See. It’s from the perspective of a child taken into military service against his and his mother’s will trying to survive during the Nazi occupation of the BSSR. It’s very much about the toll that war takes on the people who aren’t actively fighting in it, and some of the scenes are absolutely heartbreaking. It’s maybe my favorite war film after The Thin Red Line. Also there’s a scene involving an artillery bombing which is genuinely terrifying and incredible, awe-inspiring really.

Pen pal wanted! /(*^*/)

Hwajeong - Week 13

Hwajeong – Week 13

So this week’s episodes get us into the middle of a battlefield, which was like, gah, child’s play. Of course it’s unrealistic to expect something grand like *insert your favorite war film here*, but ugh, I was vastly underwhelmed.

As I watched the scenes unfold leading to the battle, I was facepalming half the time because everyone keeps asking Jung-myeong to leave the battlefield, and that…

“Fury” is probably one of my favorite war films so far. It was released in October 2013, directed by David Ayer, and features some popular great actors like Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf. In my opinion, this movie doesn’t really romanticize war. What I learned about war in this film, that we don’t often see in other movies, is the fear and sadness that soldiers face. We can get little glimpses of that in other movies but there is much more of that in this movie. This medium differs from songs and articles because here a visual is created for me. With news articles and songs, I have to imagine an image for myself and that can make it more difficult for me to picture the reality of war.
