War Movies Parents Guide Film Quiz 11

It’s been such a long time since the last war movie film quiz. A year? Almost. At the time I had discovered the Parents Content Advisory Guide on IMDb which I still find hilarious.

Below you can read the Parents Content Advisory Guide of a very famous war movie. Can you guess which one it is? (Just in case – the picture is taken from The Fallen and not from the movie we are looking for.)

Sex & Nudity

A short scene involves soldiers being given a talk on how to avoid sexual disease while off duty. The dialogue is not particularly explicit, making reference to ‘horizontal refreshment’. A diagram of a male sexual organ is shown very briefly (intended for humorous effect).

Off duty soldiers in a bar look at black & white images of female nudity – seen only very briefly. The same soldiers then visit a brothel; it is implied that they will have sexual intercourse (none is shown). One character questions the morality of their actions.

A number of soldiers are seen (from behind) running naked into the sea; underwater scenes show the soldiers swimming naked in murky waters while being bombarded with shrapnel.

Violence & Gore

There are a number of battle scenes towards the end of the film. A large number of soldiers are killed or wounded, although this is not shown in a graphic way. There is little by way of explicit gore; a number of relatively minor flesh wounds are shown with a little blood visible at times.

Profanity

There is some mild swearing during the course of the film but not a great deal; bad language is generally kept to a minimum. There are no ‘f’ words.

Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking

There are several scenes involving the drinking of alcohol. A number of soldiers smoke cigarettes in the trenches.

Frightening/Intense Scenes

Some scenes of trench warfare are tense and emotionally charged.

Did you get it? No? Here is the solution.

WWII War Movie Quotes Film Quiz 10

It has been a while since I posted the last Movie Quotes Quiz and as far as I remember I haven’t done a WWII one. I did one on Holocaust movies, but not on combat ones.

I will not post the list of movies that are quoted or it might be too easy.

Off we go…

[the troop stops before a memorial]
Would you look at how fast they put the names of all our guys who got killed? ”
That’s a World War One memorial.”
But the name’s are the same.”
“They always are.”

Solution 1

[about his wound]”It hurts… Don’t pick me up anymore.”
“Listen Bob, if I leave you, ain’t nobody gonna find you. You’re gonna die out here.”
“Just sit here for a bit.”

I AM dying.”
[evasively] We can’t sit here.”

Solution 2

[voice over]” We were a family. How’d it break up and come apart, so that now we’re turned against each other? Each standing in the other’s light. How’d we lose that good that was given us? Let it slip away. Scattered it, careless. What’s keepin’ us from reaching out, touching the glory?”

Solution 3

“What will we do when we have lost the war?”
Prepare for the next one.”

Solution 4

“Did you hear what Tom did this morning?”
No.”
He went to see old Nickelby, and asked him if they gave out compassionate leave if there’s been a death in the family. So Nickelby said, “Oh, yeah, yeah, depending on the circumstances.” And Tom said, “Well, there hasn’t been a death in my family yet, but there’s going to be one very soon, and I request leave to go home and console my parents.””

Solution 5

When was the last time you felt good about anything?”

Sounds a frightful bore.”
Sir, it was a frightful bore.”

Solution 7

Ten and a half, sir.”
Let’s make it *eleven*, before *Jerry* has you for *breakfast!*”
Spring chicken to shitehawk in one easy lesson.”

You don’t know the worst. This bit we’re on now?”
Yes?”
It’s the wide part.”

Solution 9

IMDb War Movie Parents Guide Film Quiz 9

I only recently saw that there was a parents guide to almost every movie describing in different paragraphs how explicit/graphic etc. a movie is and if or if not it can be watched with children. I read some of them and found many quite hilarious. Some movies come across in such an odd way seen like this…

I didn’t want to simply give you an example. Instead, let’s test your knowledge. Below you see the parents guide of a famous war movie. Guess which one it is.

There is reference to soldiers raping/attempting to rape some villagers

A man talks about how he loves pussy

In one scene, in the background, you can see a poster of a fully nude woman.

A man reads Playboy.

A man holds a small statue of a nude woman.

As this is a war film, there is graphic war violence throughout the picture.

Examples are a man is shot in the lungs and has trouble breathing while oozing blood. A man is piecing his internals back in. Many men are shot and killed, wounded, and screaming. A brief scene of taking wounded men back to an Aid zone, though it is a short scene there are many sitings of wounded men, dead mutilated bodies, and medics covered in blood. A scene of torturing a Vietnamese soldier ends in much blood shed (brains are implied but not seen).

A rape scene which is quickly ended by interruption.

The most disturbing scene is where the troops raid a village: a man with a mental illness gets beaten to death with the back of a gun and then they continue to shoot his distraught mother. Several adults and children get blown up with grenades (very graphic). A man shoots a woman in front of her son and grandaughter. He then put a gun to the head of the grandaughter, to torture the woman’s son. He nearly shoots the girl before his is interrupted.

Contains frequent strong language, including blasphemy, the ‘f’ word, and many uses of sh*t, a**, b*tch, and 1 use of the ‘n’ slur.

Alcohol, cigarette smoking and marijuana smoking are all depicted. It is implied that doing “shit” will wear you away from your worries.

a scene in which a Vietnamese villager is being tortured by soldiers, especially the conclusion, may be very disturbing to many viewers

one theme of the film is that of some of the soldiers who have been there for as short as two weeks going insane with bloodlust and mental visions. this may be disturbing to many viewers

Now, any ideas?
