    As this has turned into the John Wayne club;- I spent some of this Easter watching the Alamo for the umpteenth time. Having seen the newer Billy Bob version since, I can't choose between them. The recent version is by far the most historically correct (although not completely), but it does lack the emotional punch and the level of entertainment that the original hasl. Same goes for the two versions of True Grit - both good films. Maybe all historical films should have both an authentic and a fun version?
    Peedee, I assume you know Andrea do a pair of duelling hussars obviously lifted from the film.

    I was forced to go and watch the john wayne Alamo movie as a kid. , I hated it then and now ...sorry !
    So I don't think I'd never watch a re-make .
    I feel the fun version of films is often sadly made instead of the
    one we wanted due to the cost, coupled with a perceived need to
    make history fit a general audience etc.
    That's why we end up saying, "oh well, in the ens it's only a movie"
    Probably that's what happened to Fury and all other films,
    great idea, gret story, altered due to post production or editing.

    The truest and most realistic war ilm I have recently seen was about the australian
    tunnel company under hill 60 of ww1, ( thanks again housecarl).

    I didn't think much of the Andrea duellists David, what did you think?

    After all the barking going on! I decided to watch this film (Fury) last night! I wasn't that bad, nor was it massively memorable either. But it was still a decent watch, as compared to other films. As stated by many! each of us has a film or two that sticks in our memory for different reasons! some for historical accuracy of uniform, and some for cinematography and story. I too, like many others have delved into the realms of 'World Cinema', with some fantastic finds. Such as the Korean film 'Brotherhood of War',. Or 'Red-Cliff', by John Woo. Good films both! at least to my eye.

    Not having seen Fury I couldn't say, but there are so many great war movies for so many different reasons. Mostly for me, they are old and made by Ealing. And every time David Niven pulls back that canopy, looks up and says "They can't take the Spitfires Mitch, they can't take 'em!!!" that's me gone:).

    Paul you don't say why you hated Alamo or didn't like the Andrea figures. Although padded out beyond belief the Alamo's final battle sequence is impressive stuff cinematically, and it was this that always stuck with me. I thought the remake was pretty good apart from the execution of Davy Crockett - it even had the battle taking place in the dark. The remake didn't cover all aspects of the conflict but it got most of the history right and was less gung-ho. Never bought the Andrea pair but thought they were a decent stab at recreating the action of the film -why you no likey?

    Agreed Mark, Red Cliff is definately spectacular but still, a bit over the top, don't ya think?

    Plus there's also pressberger's "a matrer of life and death" with david niven, roger livesey, marius goring and daniel massey.
    One of the best films ofn a Sunday afternoon made in 1946 but amazing.

    Hence the Lancaster reference Peedee. That first scene in the Lancaster Is just the coolest thing ever, " Yes June I'm baling out, I'm baling out but there's a catch - I've got no parachute". He's still chatting up the girl while the plane's burning! Just had to go watch it again. There's a subject for a pair of busts -Squadron leader Peter Carter and June, I'd overlook my usual dislike of busts for that. (Don't anyone dare make smutty remarks about Kim Hunter - I'm warning you!)

    Mm not as good looking as Helena Bonham Carter by then either, phwoar.
    June's bum had grown to the size of the back end of a sherman tank.
    However, the action scenes in the original where full of sound and FURY......

    And we're back on thread ...?
    Hahaha
