Movie Talk on Sunday (9th November)


With the Centennial of WWI in a few days, I thought it’s only fitting to visit a genre that has been around since the beginning of film; in fact the first film ever to win an Academy Award was WINGS (1927), a romantic action-war picture.


War films can contain multiple genres within; from pure history to adventure, love stories and even comedies and satire.  Saving-Private-Rya_1465067c

10 questions alone can’t do it justice of course, but we’ll try and look at some different aspect of War in film.

I’m keeping it fairly simple this time, I hope we can talk some more about this long running and fascinating genre a future MOVIE TALK ON SUNDAY.

Here is how MOVIE TALK ON SUNDAY works:

It starts Sundays at 8pm GMT and the host starts posting a question every 10 minutes.
