My son is really into WWI and WWII right now.

 

Mine too. He is almost 15 and it all started with the Captain America movie. Then, Saving Private Ryan, then Fury, then every other possible war movie he could get his hands on.

 

Then there are the board games such as Tides of Iron and Memoir '44. Plus about a million video games including COD WWII.

 

Right now he is obsessed with the Soviet Union and Stalin. Which by the way, if you haven't seen it, The Death of Stalin is a great movie.

I really enjoyed it. My son came to me and asked to go see it at the independent theater not too far from us. I was skeptical, but it came through.

Watched the first part of this last night.  I generally don't go for reenactments but with the original pics and footage thrown in along with the narration, it's pretty good.  I knew that there was some amount of Nazi activity before WW2 started but I was fuzzy on exactly how and why that happened.  I knew the "we're butthurt about WW1 and the reparations stuff and we want to be free to feck with people again" part (:lol:) but I didn't know the nuts and bolts like Deitrich Eckhart.  I especially liked this part...

I was in Ypres yesterday. The Flanders Fields museum was great. Also visited the German WWI cemetery in Langemarck, at which Hitler stopped at for a propaganda photo shoot shortly after the invasion of Belgium in 1940.

We haven't seen it yet. Friends said it was pretty but not really a story of any kind.

It looked good. It made for a great trailer. It just didn't really deliver.

Yeah, so much they could've done but instead they almost went art-house with it.

I saw the trailer for that one and also The Zookeeper (Zookeeper's Wife?) at the same time.  I said to my wife, "Those both look AWESOME!".  The Zookeeper's Wife was very good.  Dunkirk only looked good.  It was a BEAUTIFUL movie... it just felt hollow.

Triumph of the Spirit( not to be confused with Triumph of the Will), Escape from Sobibor, and the Grey Zone, are also good period pieces

Edit- The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, and Alone in Berlin is good too

I've made it to episode 8 or 9... very good and a lot of tiny details that I didn't really know.  The fact that there was fighting among the circle is no surprise but some of the other stuff and some of the players are new to me.  I didn't know about Eckhart or Boorman really.  The episode I just watched shined a light on Albert Speer who was the reich architect originally and then became armaments minister.  His wife (Britney Speer) became music minister.  :lol:

Most of this never made it to my history classes. It is a very polished series.
