These are the questions for movie 2 Talvisota -The Winter War which is part of the double watch along of two movies.
Here are the questions should you want to participate. This time most of the questions have been contributed by Kevin from The War Movie Buff.
You do not need to answer these questions, you can also just post a review on the movie, participate in the discussion and link to my site. I’ll add the review to my post.
- How did you like the movie?
- Talvisota is often compared to Stalingrad, do you think that is justified?
- Who is your favourite character and why?
- Do you identify with any particular side or character? Why?
- How is the enemy represented? Are they stereotyped? Demonized?
- Does the film present violence as the only way to solve problems?
- What are they fighting for?
- What hardships do the soldiers have to overcome?
- Is the combat realistic?
- Is the movie solidly anti-war?
- How does it compare to movies like Saving Private Ryan and The Thin Red Line?
- Did you think the ending was satisfying?
Tha date for the watchalong is Thursday 29 December 2011.
Is there a set day to post the review?
Yes, Thursday 29 (it’s at the bottom of the post).
yes I saw that but wasn’t clear if we watched it THAT day (post later) or posted that day. I’ll probably watch it the weekend before then.
I see, yes, that wasn’t clear… Sorry.
I’d like to add a question: do you identify with any particular side or character? Why? That’s a bit different from the favourite character question.
I’ll add it. I tend to pick the questions I like best and leave out those I’m not keen on. Since we have this in the Master & Commander as well, it makes sense to chnage them a bit. Thanks.
