A slow day at the office so a quickpost about your favorite battlescenes in cinema

Recently i watched a rather old film and i was very impressed by some of it battlescenes,pre digital age, especially the charge of the british cavalry as seen in the link,
tho the film has alot of historical incorrect facts and the wrong uniforms i did enjoy it , just for the fact i always been into historical tabletopwargamming
(I wonder how it must have felt like being on the receiving end of such a charge)

I know there many other good films with great battlescenes films like
Gettysburg
Lord of the ringtrillogy
Saving private ryan
and others
So what is your favorite scene

May not fit the true definition of cinema, but:

The fleet fight from Clear Skies 2. I get goosebumps during the warp in Embarassed

Even though I dislike the movie because of its cheese, I still like the capital ship fight from the Wing Commander movie. "Given the Broadside!" rings through my head every time I start up my artys.

Surprisingly EVE-like when one fleet meets a larger fleet.

Alliance vs. Reavers

Love that scene and was going to list it as well. I always wished they had a larger budget so it would have been longer. (Most of the budget went to the CG if i remember correctly.)

Another of my favoites is in band of brothers when Lt Speirs run through the German town.

The postbank robbery shootout in Heat. Also one of the best examples of surround sound mixing I've ever heard.

Also demonstrates why we need the proposed nebulas in Eve.

On topic: pretty much anything in Babylon 5.

it's a great fight sequence.

i have a great fondness for Firefly (it shows because i don't capitalize anything in a forum post ;p ) and the one thing that always bothered me about the reavers is this: if they are as batsh!t crazy angry as stated then they would never, ever be able to maintain a spacecraft for longer than it takes to blow up in ascent phase. it takes a bit of patience and thought to keep these things flying for any length of time as shown by kaley/engineering-whatnot. if a reaver were in an engine room, if at all, then every problem has the 'hammer solution' where every tool becomes a hammer.

i can only see this as problematic at best. YARRRR!! yarr?

It's hard to say for me as there are a few that jump out...

The Battle of Hoth, from Empire Razz

The battle near the end of Saving Private Ryan...

It might be the battle near the end of The Fellowship of The Ring, when they're in the forest being chased by the Ur 'Akha or however it's called; good battle and some really good acting from all the characters.

I'm surprised that I can't think of any really great battlescenes :(

Glory, Band of Brothers, the automated gun turrets scene from Aliens.

Although to be honest, the thought of Napoleonic/US Civil War line formations and WWI style human waves versus machine guns type battles make my stomach churn.

Uruk Hai and yes I agree, I also like a few star wars scenes, Starship Troopers has some really good ones, Saving Private Ryan, invading the beach, and of course The Pacific has one of the best, can't look on youtube atm but will do as soon as

I enjoyed this thread so one more

Spartacus final battle

When you just hired 10000 people instead of 10 CGI artists and movies were 20% cooler.

Oh hell I just remembered this one...great F-ing movie !

I like most all the movies stated above. The ones picked here are for the fighting impact within the storyline. Mostly.

Seven Samurai(1954). The final fight between the samurai and the bandits.
Hell Is for Heroes(1962). During WWII, Steve McQueen leads an U.S. attack on a German pill box.
The Bedford Incident(1965). Modern submarine warfare between a Soviet submarine and a American destroyer.
The Challenge(TV Movie: 1970). Probably my favorite one on one battle movie. “All-out war between the United States and an Asian country is averted when the two sides agree to settle their differences by each choosing a single soldier as champion and having the two men fight to the death on an isolated island. “
Full Metal Jacket(1987). U.S. Marines involved in street fighting in 1968 Hue, Vietnam.

I've always liked Memphis Belle.

Slow-ass B-17s flying through Flak and ME-109s, not many movies cover the particular horror of cramming into a ball turret.

Also from 1990 - Hunt for Red October - guiding the Typhoon past the Neptune Massive.

Another good one I Found from the bbc Docu dramma hannibal Barca battle of cannae

It is always great to see Romans wearing the right, equipment for their time period instead of being dressed up like hollywoodromans like you see so many times

Some great films and tv series posted on here , reminds me i still have to see many of them

And yes LT Speirs run thru foy from band of brothers series is still EPIC

loved this but raising your bid Same director same actor , paths of glory assault scene

Spartacus was the first and last time kubrick allowed himself to be controlled by one of the major film studios compared with other works from him it shows

Also Kirk Douglas was one of only 2 actors Kubrick allowed full freedom on the set , other one was Peter SEllers in DR strangelove
I just LOVE Stanly kubrick and hiw works

Cool battle from Babylon5: The Lost Tales. I'm not sure when it was made, but they vastly improved the big explosions, laser effects, and ships from the series.
