Q: About war Movies?

Simple question really.

Why does the enemy always die easy?

In Chinese movies, the hero flicks his supernatural sword and 10 Japanese die.

In Western movies, the hero has non stop ammo in his suoernatural gun.

But if the heros pal dies, everything stops so the pal can do a speach.

Are war movies not just propaganda?

You forgot the part about the national flag waving in the breeze to some inspirational music.

You do understand that movies aren't real? There aren't any magic rings (referring to LOTR the book) There aren't any boy wizards. 

Here's the problem with ideologues whether they be lefties or righties, they refuse to consider all the facts. Movies are works of art just like paintings, music and books. They're not true to life. Stop trying to 'act' smarter because you actually show that you're not. 

This post is a classic example of elitism.

Of course they are propaganda. ..if you keep pushing the same line more people believe it and don't bother about checking facts .
Every government and corporate does it...just some are more discreet than others lol

Casablanca is a great flick imo.  I thought the beginning is pretty funny when they decide to round up ‘suspicious characters’.  The one guy tries to run from the cops and bang!  they shoot him dead,,,    haha,,, talk about over-reacting!

Another good war movie is Sands of Iwo Jima.   Everyone should see that movie.  John Wayne was a bad-ass!

I think TV, movies etc in general are mostly propaganda. Actually maybe propaganda isn't the best word, maybe social engineering.

 

I don't know if it's intentional or not but it does dumb down the masses.

 

But all that aside, saving private Ryan was a brilliant flick.

"Because you can't get people to join the military and blindly do what their told if the reality were depicted... blood, screaming, stupidity, and the humanity of the enemy...

 

Remember - you and yours are always superior to them and theirs... can't have people thinking otherwise

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
