2008-05-07 Die Brücke von Arnheim

Yeah, I’ve seen several WW2 movies by now. A Bridge Too Far (1977) is a good war movie, but did not touch me in particular. The characters are flat, what remains is a few cynic comments by some of the big shots and some war impressions. I thought the destruction of Arnheim was particularly scary.

What really impressed me was how some of the scenes so closely match what I played through in Medal of Honor: Frontline. It’s scary how similar video games and movies have become in some ways. The game designers and visual artists must have seen all these classic war movies.

I still recommend the movie because of these Arnheim scenes.
