According to famous film director Sam Mendes, people love war films because they represent a very real, visceral, human experience. Classic war films have historically done well at the box office. By all standards, and for whatever reason, they are tremendously successful and everyone loves them. But which classic war movie DVDs should you buy if you want to start a collection? Here are some ideas:
Ike TV Miniseries 2-DVD Edition
Starring Academy Award nominee, and BAFTA, and Emmy award winner Robert Duvall, the television mini-series focuses on General Dwight “Ike” Eisenhower. War film buffs and lovers certainly need a copy of this limited-edition classic war movie DVD set.
The Expendables (1988)
Film lovers will be surprised to know that “The Expendables” (2010) is not the first to hold the title. But apart from the title, there are no similarities between this classic war movie DVD collectible and the modern versions. The classic focuses on a group of misfit soldiers trained into becoming an elite team. Risking their lives, they save American hostages in Cambodia.
Yes, the 2017 “Dunkirk” film written and directed by Christopher Nolan was not the first film to depict the evacuation of Dunkirk in World War II. The 1958 version stars Richard Attenborough, John Mills, and Bernard Lee. It was a critical and financial success—every film lover should definitely have a copy of this classic war movie DVD.
