So Im watching the movie Stalingrad
I got to say.... the Russians sure know how to make a propaganda film! The movie almost reminds me of playing RO2. Just started watching it, so ill tell you what I thought about it when its over.

so its not that bad of a movie. I actually enjoyed it even though it got bad reviews. It's a love story combined with a group of Nazis and Russians fighting over a cap zone that looks very familiar to the court yard in fallen fighters. They battle against each other the exact same way that we play...haha check it out

Is that the movie about the Russian sniper eventually going against the elite German sniper?

I bought the movie from Amazon and watched it. Pretty decent movie, if you are a WW2 movie lover, gotta check it out. The CGI is amazing.

Aside from a love story, that's rather blah (gotta have love scenes in war movies so chicks will watch it with their significant other) its got a lot of very cool action scenes. Unfortunately the only copy I could find has subtitles that aren't translated well at times, but overall worth a watch.

isn't that a movie that tries to present the nazi soldiers as the good guys?, im not sure, all i'v seen was small clip of like 10 russian tanks supported by infantry attacking a little hill and like one squad deciemates them all.
and later in the end they 'tragically' die in a snow strom.

if that's the case it's a bit NTY.

or is it something else?

No, that's the 1993 German movie you described.
You might want to watch the whole movie, pretty good imo all things considered.

You guys might want to also check out Cross of Iron, another good film with an anti-war slant since it was made just right after the Vietnam conflict.

Fun in an utterly depressing way, but yep watch it as well.

Come and See and Cross of Iron are two of the best war films ever.

The "Stalingrad" I saw has nothing to do with russian propaganda.

Best war movie ever made still remains "The Bridge." "Saving Private Ryan" is based on "The Bridge," but the earlier movie in its original German (undubbed) is superb.

Thats because much of Fallen Fighters is based on an actual part of the Stalingrad battlefield; known as the Univermag Department Store. It was serving as the German commanders' command post by the end of the battle. The development team used old maps, building blueprints, and aerial recon photos to recreate the battlefield.

It's a disappointment (the new Russian one). They had such an opportunity to spectacularly set the record on Stalingrad from the Russian perspective. Instead, it's a goofy action movie. Spectacular effects, if a little out of place (gratuitous slo-mo); not a patch on Brestkaya Krepost / Fortress of War.
