There are a couple of new conflict movies worth a watch, tho they all take place before the '60s. "1917" is excellent, as is "War Horse" and "The Lost Battalion", and "Gallipoli" that all cover the Great War. "Das Boot", "Defiance", "Fury", and "Saving Private Ryan" are WWII based. I just can't watch anything I was remotely involved in or later. "We Were Soldiers" was well done, but too familiar.I prefer Korean War and earlier. I don’t care for the Vietnam shows or new conflict movies. Still love M.A.S.H the antics kind of transcend the time frame.
Korea? M*A*S*H is celebrating its 50th anniversary and lasted more than three times longer than the conflict. "Pork Chop Hill" and "Bridges At Toko-Ri" fit the bill. "Battle Circus" is about MASH units, and I noticed something I hadn't about the TV series before---there's no top sergeant on the TV MASH. Never saw any kind of military unit without a top sergeant keeping it all together.
I'm a history aficionado. "Gladiator" and "Master and Commander" (both with Russell Crowe) cover their respective eras well. I seem to be a rarity in that I like "Thirteenth Warrior".
I don't watch them to glorify war or violence, but more to understand the drive, the camaraderie, and the struggles of those involved.
