    Do you even know who broke the Enigma codes?
    Do you even know when the Enigma code was broke?

    Other questions about who and when captured the Enigma machine from submarine/U-boot I will leave to you when you will be checking "true event"
    Get your panties out of a wad and reread what I posted. I said based on true events or SOMEWHAT true events. No movie is 100% accurate.
    Dear Socialists: I have no money for you. I spent it all on guns and ammo.

    Done
    But know that U-571 isn't even close to true event or SOMEWHAT true events but just simply write history in wrong manner.

    It is just like I write that the "fathers of the American cavalry/U.S. Cavalry" was some foreigners, not Americans.

    Oh, wait that is actually true, sorry bad agsample.

    But this is the same to say that WWII was started by germans not nazis (again bad egsample) but was started by Japanese or russians.

    It is hard to pick a favorite. There have been a lot of my favorites already posted.

    Due to some unique life experiences I've had Oblivion is probably my favorite.








    I have been on a hard Sicario and Sicario 2 kick lately.

    If you're going to get all bunged-up over Hollywood straying from true stories you may as well not even watch movies altogether because it's been going on incessantly since silent films. All through the generations, scripts "based on true stories" or based on books have been fancified, embellished, and in some cases almost completely refabricated for the sake of selling tickets at the box office. Look at some of the classics- "Frankenstein" with Boris Karloff, "Dracula" with Lugosi(and just about every other rendition of the Bram Stoker book), "Lawrence of Arabia" with Peter O'Toole, every single Bond film, the list goes on. None of these films were faithful to the original stories or the history they were retelling. Hollywood has almost never been in the business of telling the truth. In some cases, like "Band of Brothers" or "Black Hawk Down," they actually harm individuals and their names when they portray them in an unnecessarily bad light.

    If you're sitting down to any movie and expecting iron-clad accuracy you're doing it wrong. Entertainment is just like any other industry- "buyer beware."

    You are right but some well known historical facts shouldn't be misrepresented.

    This is how we teach lies and give a credit to one who doesn't deserve for it.

    "I have been persecuted but never prosecuted." Antony C. Sutton regarding his books. It's mildly amusing to see "Groupthink".

    Well write a petition then, I'll sign it. Or get it on a ballot, I'll vote for it. But until then I'll continue to go into a film knowing full well it's largely exaggerated 1/2 truths and I'll set that aside and I'll at least try to have a good time and enjoy a couple hours of Hollywood escapism with a coke and a tub of popcorn along w/the Mrs. My somewhat above average knowledge of history allows me to discern reality from bullshit and still have a good time.

    Great flicks listed already and yes, so many to choose from. Will give it a go and these are not in any order of preference...just ones which come to mind:

    1. The Searchers (1956)
    2. The Time Machine (1960)
    3. Godzilla, King of the Monsters (1956)
    4. Little Big Man (1970)
    5. A Clockwork Orange (1971)
    6. The Longest Day
    7. Patton (Only film I saw 4 times in a theater...the first being a high school graduation event a friend of mine's father took his son, cousin & I to, at the Pantages Theater in Los Angeles.)
    8. The Green Berets
    9. James Bond 007 film series starring Sean Connery
    10. Dirty Harry film series with Clint Eastwood
    +1.The Third Man (1949)
    +2.Blue Velvet (1986)*

    Honorable mention to "The Kid Brother" starring Harold Lloyd (1927), "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum" (1966) and The Magic Christian (1969).
    If I ever came close to busting a gut due to continual laughter, it was while watching these films!

    *This film is one of the most bizarre I have ever seen. For years I viewed Gene Siskel & Robert Ebert's TV film revue program "At the Movies". Their revue of this film was the only one both were ever at a loss for words to describe. It is not only the content, but style of the film which draws one in to the point you can't look away...
