This is the 'war-edition' of the most-intense-movies-scenes-polls. According to IMDb poll board users, there are scenes in some war movies that are so intense with struggle or a special twist, that you will never forget them again. Which of these intense war-scenes below is your pick?

(Feel free to vote, even if you saw just a few of these movies.
If you didn't see any of them, pick the one that you would watch the most likely)

(Only Movies related to real wars containing real inspired to pure fictional events with a rating of at least 6/10)

https://www.imdb.com/list/ls024846644/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/ICx9v1hbldU/

This is the fifth part of the row.

Live-poll part I
Live-poll part II
Live-poll part III
Live-poll part IV

Some war related movies are still used in some of the other four polls. These are no option for this poll:

'Schindlers List'
'The Deer Hunter'
'Inglorious Basterds'
'Buried'
'Sicario'
'Incendies'
'Saving Private Ryan'
'Dunkirk'

I'm aiming for 25 options to present, but I'm open for more. Some on the existing list - linked above - are debateable when there are better options. Some of the options are carved in stone. Intense emotional scenes of wartimes sometimes prefered, like Adrien Brody in 'The Pianist'. Count the 'cold war' as war!

Greetings. :D

I fixed it fast but you were so fast with answering. ;) Now it's ok. Linked war to war.

It's great you made the first suggestion. That scenes-poll-row is made by us. I took advantage to make another suggestion, because it became silent around this row. If you want to make another part, tell me. Else I 'll go on. My idea is to take one genre to another for most intense scenes. I think it's nice that you made the first suggestion. Maybe I'll find an image for it, then I'll put it to the list.

The scene you linked, I saw a few years ago and I remembered seing it the first time. That's pretty intense. Thank you for suggesting. :D  Maybe Kyle can suggest one, too.

For me, you can go on. I think you're continuing this pretty well. I think that you have more ideas about this thread, dividing this in specific genres was a good idea. 
For now, I'll try to give you suggestions if I have. ;)

Keep it up #MostIntenseMovieScenes

Thank you, that's kind. I combed the actors pages for a fitting image, but nope!
Is it allowed to grab images from dvd and to add them to IMDb? I have no idea, how this many images came to be on IMDb and how the legal situation and authorization in Germany and America is about that. If it was legal to grab an image for that purpose, I would do. But as long as I don't know, I don't dare. I guess these images are put on the database by authorized persons, who have the right to do that.

Hey Breu:
What other series do you want to do next? On the next couple days will be hard to provide another help besides a few suggestions but I will try my best to do more.

Tell me your thoughts. ;)

I'm planing to go throug the genres and have some lists prepared in private mode. (not filled) When that poll row is through with 15 to 17 main genres, I plan to pick the top 2 of each of our polls for making the closing poll over the whole row. It can be only 10, too. That depends for me on how popular they are. If the users like it till the end, I would keep it to 17, if not - 10 would do with only taking thre of the tops. What do you think about? Do you have a special genre, you woud like to do? And to Kyle - Are you ok with it?

If anybody would like to do with the rules we three set up, he can do, right? The things is - it's better to pronounce it before making an endless list - and then someone other does, too. So if you got a special genre you want to do, tell me. But I also will only set my list out of private mode, when the predecessor is live. And I will stop and delete the concerned list, when someone another claims to do that genre by suggestion.

So each time a  part of the row is freshly suggested, it's the best time for claiming the next genre to one self. Fair enough?

Greetings. :)

It seems good your idea, I don't think there is anyone besides us doing this thread. So you can be relieved about that.
... but like I said, this seems more adequate to you doing this because I think that you have more fresh ideas and you have watched more movies than I.
I am pleased with your desire to keep this series alive.

A suggestion, maybe a horror serie? Although I can't help you on that with suggestions because I barely watch horror movies. It can be a bit cliché because it's the goal of this type of movies but doesn't mean that is stupid or bad.

Thank you, you're so kind. I considered to make a most intense horror movie scenes poll suggestion, but I fight shy to do that. Why? I'm a horror-movie watcher and have seen many so far so good. The Probs with this matter on horror movies is, that there are will be such a flood of fyc's, that I still don't know how to manage that.

Another Prob is, that these movies mostly live from intense scenes. So I gonna put in 'no pure jumpscare scenes' but then it got a real good chance to turn out as a zombie-deathmatch-poll, which I really don't consider to do. Zombies, yay, to many nay. Now I take which one? What's the good, what's the bad suggestion?

And many of the hottest candidates are banned in Germany. So in many cases, I even can't decide to do, because I couldn't buy the movie or stream it. Sometimes that's good, in some cases not. But I don't want to exclude slashers in general. I'm figuring that out. ;)

I consider it's one of the hardest tries in this row. But I'll try. - Later. ;)

I'm realizing that it can be harder to select on that genre.

It was just a hipothetycal idea. ;)

Your really weird use of the adjective 'awesome' (not likely in the old biblical sense of the word) for the Michael Bay muliRazzie nominated feature and you have nothing from Saving Private Ryan (let alone the initial D Day beach scene)?  Nullifies most of this list.

Stephen:

I don't know how I should explain it further. I try.
We (Kyle Perez, SeventhAR7 and me) breed the idea to make a row of most-intense-movie-scene-polls. The rules are to avoid using no movie in this row TWICE. The movies I excluded above were used in the other 4 polls of this row. They are OUT!

Maybe I don't use the word awesome proper. Maybe you have another word for it, that fits better. If you have seen the movie, you can explain the ambush scenes another way, maybe? But only because the director for one of the options is Michael Bay means the list is 'nullified'? To scorn all the other options just because there is one Michael Bay film on the list looks a little odd. So nobody should ever use a Michael Bay film on the list in a positive way or what? I guess the troubles lay somewhere else.

But maybe your are going to tell me the correct biblical sense of the word awesome and I'll understand?

If you have another movie-scene that matches the rules (with fitting image), I'll replace the 'Pearl Harbor'-option with it.

Maybe 'sequences' would be a more fitting word... I don't mean that to be technical but when I read "intense war-related scene", i'm thinking of a one-location scene and a few minutes that had me over the edge of my seat... the opening of "Saving Private Ryan" is a school-case of how to make a battle sequence, but it's too long to be a fair competitor against much shorter scenes.

To give you an example, the hand-to-hand fight scene between Mellish and the German soldier was in my opinion the most intense scene in the film.

I understand your point, but I can't change the main character of the poll because it's of scenes, not of sequences. I take the the term as I understand the definition here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scene_(filmmaking)
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Szene_(Film)


So I take a scene also as a collection of different takes, acting on the same place, following the same storypart like the Japanese Suicide Scene. Such a scene can have 100 merged takes as long as it's happening in the same place, following the same plot. That would be a very long scene, but one scene. So I see it with the shooting of the sniper in Full Metal Jacket. It's one scene, where Eightball get's slowly shot to death to trigger the other marines. It's a wide area where it happens, but belonges to ne scene. The Eightball shooting scene.

Maybe the term 'The scenes of' would be better in that case. That would match with the title, too. The only thing that is a little wide interpreted as one scene is the ambush on 'Pearl Harbor'. Ok - with that argument, I could delete it. But I still think that Michael Bay created mindblowing pictures of this ambush. Maybe it would fit, if there was a more specific picture, I would take it. The one with the cam in the neck of the bomb (CGI), showing the way of the bomb from aircraft to the inner of the ship. That was a great visualization of war methods.

I'll think of it. But yes, it's a good argument. ;)

ElM.:

I know the intense scene you mean and it would be good, but repeatedly:

The movie "Saving Private Ryan" is used by another poll of this poll-row.
So thank you, but it doesn't fit.

Maybe it's because I took screenwriting courses and they "insisted" a lot on a sequence not being a scene and a scene being a matter of characters and location, once you get to another group of persons or another part of the big location, it's another scene.
 example:

SEQUENCE - PEARL HARBOR SHOOTING

SCENE 1: BOAT
SCENE 2: HAWAII CAMP
SCENE 3: JAPANESE HEADQUARTERS
etc.

I see your point though, these courses didn't get me anywhere... theory is one thing, having fun with a poll another...

It's important to understand and remember that screen scenes (as in cinema and television) have slightly different meanings from stage scenes (as in theatre).

Well, I was talking "cinema" not "stage", i'm not sure it'd be convenient to compact ten minutes of battles into one single scene denomination, that's all. But like I said, I was only being theoretical... no big deal...

It would be nice, if everybody would take it to the point as you do.

After seeing Vassilli (Jude Law) being trained by his grandfather on how to be a sniper marksman while hunting wolves in the Ural(?), the large scale battle of the crossing of the Volga and the first scenes of the battle of Stalingrad early in the film Enemy At The Gates (2001) and it just gets more tense from there with the personnel confrontations between Vassilli and Major Konig (Ed Harris).

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8yOBCGw...

(Then )

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4aQVsqQ...

(The scenes follow back to back in the film.)

- “The Longest Day”

- (if it wasn’t for a terribly bad explosion blast super imposure special effect at the beginning of the movie during the Pearl Harbor battle scenes at the beginning of ) In Harm’s Way (1965) (that knocks the viewer out of his suspension of disbelief, I would recommend the film for it’s depiction of the naval side of the island hopping in the pacific theater in World War Two and the inservice politics of the naval command.)


Does it have to be modern mechanized warfare? Can it be older types of warfare?

- Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” (2003)

- The Patroit (2000)

- Braveheart (1995)


Most intense battle in a SciFy film? The Battle for Oasis In “Ready Player One” I personal think Spielberg out did the D-Day landing in “Saving Private Ryan” in that one.

Hello, dgranger.

William Wallace is a good choice for sure. He really existed and the war in Scottland did. I will put him on the list and check the other ones. Do I for myself have 4 candidates that may be too insecure on their position. I sure will replace one of them with 'Braveheart'. This is a suggestion about picture-scenes of real wars. So SciFis are categorical no-go for sure. Please wait a little. I got a job and a private life with my wife and my kids. So I sometimes have no time. I will take care of it, later.

Repeating:

The 'Ready Player One'-Battle has been took on a poll of this row and the D-Day-Landing of 'Saving Private Ryan' has been in one poll of this row, too. So they are out. One Movie only once in the entire poll-row.

Adding knowledge how it came to this poll-row:

Kyle Perez had the first idea of this great suggestion. Then SeventhAr7 seven followed. And I felt it was a great idea.So I joined.

I know there has only one movie been twice in poll#1 and poll#2. The rule that each movie should be only once in the whole poll-row was created after poll#2 going live, by a creative discussion.

Note: Everyone can induce another poll suggestion to the row by following the rules. I'm exactly not the mentor, just took advantage of the creative work of Kyle Perez and SeventhAr7. They agreed me to take that avantage. But still anyone can make a P.S. on it, I think. And I think the order of genres is a good orientation. If anyone wants to do so, please let it know.

Free will happens.

Hi, dgranger. I just clicked your links for 'Enemy at the Gates'. They're more like sequences. So I won't put it on the list. I can't click the other links. maybe you re-post some links that are more useable for me and I'll consider to take them to the list. The best would be, if you gave me an image link from IMDb and the description. A youtube link like the others you posted above is helpful for decision in negative AND posiive way. It's more easy. Thank you for suggesting. :)

In “Enemy at the gate” it was all one scene that showed rather that tell you bit by bit how the red was getting it’s ass kicked in the beginning of the Battle Of Stalingrad. It resolves itself into this scene where Vassilli and Danalof were trapped at a fountain and ... well, see for yourself. This did happen. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wMvTR01...

I've changed the image of 'The Patriot' to a better recognizeable one. About 'Master and Commander': It seems to be more of a sequence as a scene, so I won't put it on the list. I remembered the scene at 'Enemy at the Gates'. It's quiete tense. But I can't put it to the list in lack of an apropriate image. I would. Anyway thank you for suggesting. :D

Deleted 'Pearl Harbour', because it's more a sequence than a scene.
The ambush is shown on several places, so it isn't only one scene. Too complex for only a scene.

Image link is there already, I believe. 

As for description... Basically Svyatkin (pictured) is suicide-baiting the tank. Here's a clip of the scene, if it may help. I believe whole scene could be described in a better way, but words frankly fail me after re-watching.

Nikolay, today I saw 'Aty-baty, ...'. It's very meaningful movie. It lay for a little less than a year in the bin. I like the dialogues. It's oldschool filmig, not those big fighting scenes like modern war movies. It concentrates more on the people and how they try to cope with all the bad circumstances. In these modern times, it's given in everybodys hands to keep freedom around the world. I still know the stories of war from old people. War makes no one a winner. Even the "winner" loses. The patriotism in that movie is typical for that time

Breumaster, glad to hear that you saw it! A little less than a year in a bin is a good result, I'd say: I saw some movies this year which I wanted to see for 10 years! :) 

I can certainly subscribe to that same point of view: outright "winners" in the war are a non-existent thing, simply because usually if the war broke out already everyone will have loss and problems, it's just that some will have less and some will have more.

I have found a (seemingly) legal streaming service where it could be viewed online with English subtitles

I highly recommend this and other two movies by Leonid BykovV boy idut odni 'stariki' (1974) and Zaychik (1965). Fairly known actor, after starting his director career Bykov only managed to direct a few movies before his untimely death in a car crash at the age of 50. It's a shame, because test footage for his unfinished film, a sci-fi comedy "The Alien" (I should add that to IMDb one day) looked very promising and amazing.

There is an offer on Amazon (Germany): 'Stariki' restored and dubbed english. The first I have found in Russian language with German subtitles. 'Zaychik' only in Russian language.

To bad that there is so less effort to claim a bigger market. I've seen some Russian movies as far as they were dubed. Even saw 'Potemkin'. That was made in the silent area. Much text to read. But it was ok. I would like to see more from eastern movie culture. Sometimes I watch Kusturica movies. Some movies from east are pretty good. They often have good subjects.

It's a little bit like the indian movies. The indians couldn't get their foot in our door. There are tons of romantic comedies and some classics dubed, but heading for the real good modern indian movies in Germany is like an obstacle-race.

I'd say that's the biggest problem about Soviet and Post-Soviet films, as well as many Eastern European countries: many great movies were never seen abroad as main orientation was domestic market. 

CliffJ, it is hard to tell who owns the footage for "The Alien" at that point. It was shown a few times in the documentaries (and once in entirety on TV which was less then 20 minutes). The script, based on a play was also re-written and filmed as a rather mediocre and forgettable Zvyozdnaya komandirovka (1983).

Thank you, Jessica. :)

I have changed the keyboard, but there seem to be some bluetooth interferrences at our house. So it still doesn't work proper. The new keyboard also swallows types very often. Sorry!  Changed the fails and learned 'grenade' with 'e'. Hope I will remember next time. It just swallowed the letter 'm' in the middle of 'remember'. :D  I still don't get, why sometimes its 's and sometimes it's s'.

Because his name is Turing, you have to add an extra s after the apostrophe. If his name were Turings, you would write it as Turings'. :)

Revision needed, suggest: Winston Churchill taking the London Tube instead of his official car, asking the citizens if Great Britain should surrender or not.

#18 doesn't make sense

Good Morning Vietnam - Cronauer chasing Tuan through the streets after finding out who he really is. I'll upload a photo and let you know when it's approved.

In the Name of the Father - The Brits torturing Gerry and his friends until they falsely confess to bombing the pub. (The war in question is "The Troubles" - the decades-long conflict between the Irish and the Brits, the Catholics and the Protestants, the IRA and the British Army.)

I would nominate this one as my all-time favorite is its depiction of "intensity" fits the poll, though it's not related directly to war but takes place in a context of war

Simply said, one of the best opening scenes from any film!

I've seen the movie and I thinks it's pretty ok. I like Kusturica's movies. The opening scene is funny. When you see it twice while thinking of a most intense movie scene, would you still suggest it? I don't know, maybe. But it's also more like a sequence, like something in between a scene and a sequenz. I'm not sure, half-convinced. Can you give me further reasons why I should put this on the list? At the moment I'm undecided. Maybe an image link and the description you thougt of. Then I will decide.

Well, I wasn't going to suggest the moment where Marko is with the hooker getting a special treatment while the whole city is drowning under German bombings? :)

Anyway the opening scene might serve for Jen's poll :)

Well, click your link you posted. It's the opening scene, you'll see.
But if you give me the right image and a proper line for the image, I could use it.
I know there was something about that what  you told, but I don't remember this clearly.
Where did you mention the hooker scene before?
It would be helpful, if you didn't ever write in riddles. Please come to the
point, just one time without only dropping hints. I won't bite you. ;)

'So many good choices. It's hard to choose. 'Glad to see 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' represented. 

May I suggest just a few edits to the intro? ('In bold, below.)

This is the 'war-edition' of the most-intense-movie-scene-polls. According to IMDb poll board users, there are scenes in some war movies that are so intense with struggle or a special twist, that you will never forget them again. Which of these intense war-scenes below is your pick?

(Feel free to vote, even if you saw just a few of these movies. If you didn't see any of them, pick the one that you would most likely watch.)

(Only movies related to real wars containing 'inspired from real' to purely fictional events with a rating of at least 6/10)

Thanks : )

Thank you, ruby. :D
You're always so kind and helpful. I corrected the things you mentioned.
And while reading I understood, it really sounds better. Now I got an
English teacher on the internet. That's what German Schools didnt
achieve on me. Maybe their contents for why learning English were to
boring. ;) "This is a red pencil ..." ;)

18 is must better. I think on the "In the Father" entry you don't have to put the information about The Troubles in there - I just put it on this post in case the scene/film didn't seem war-related.

Another suggestion - Three Kings. It's hard to pick just one scene, pretty much the whole first half of the movie has you on the edge of your seat.

But here's the one:
Trying to save the Kuwaitis by getting them over the border

Adding a photo - I'll let you know when it's approved.

Sorry, I took it as an explanation for other users. Now it's deleted.

I will check 'Three Kings'. That was pretty good, too. I'll put it to the list.

The British-Irish conflict can truly been considered to be a long winded, silent war with too many victims. We always got the news in TV and the papers. That was real life for many people in these 3 decades.

Added 'Three Kings'. Thank you for suggesting. It's a pretty good movie.
I was surprised about it's qualities. The cover looked a little
'in a pedestrian way'

The movie.

Seems like the description of Three Kings doesn't really work. You're not talking about the specific scene, you're almost recapping the entire film. I suggest using what I originally wrote. Of course, making a change is completely up to you.

I saw you had posted a posting with 'The Dirty Dozen' and 'Stalag 17'. But the posting seems to be lost by the server troubles. Can you post image links of the movies on IMDb here and a short description of the intense moment? Then I'll put it on the list. When I saw these movies, it's a long time ago and I do not remember proper on special moments.

Remember: It should be one intense moment of the movie, not a sequence. And I need the description for each scene seperately. Do and I guess I will remember then and put it on the list. I know these two are special movies with good scenes. Wasn't it, that they installed an provisional alarming system for detecting the german guard at 'Stalag 17'?

You can help me putting them both on the list, because it seems you remember more proper.

Btw: 'The Enemy Below' - I searched for some images, but there are not many.
As I haven't seen the movie, I need to know if this image would fit to your suggestion:

"This is the fifth part of the row." - I suggest series instead of row.

FYC:
Defiance - Alone on a supply run in the dead of winter, Lilka is attacked by a wolf.
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence - The Japanese bury Strafer standing up in the sand all the way to his neck.
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

The Hurt Locker - James desperately struggles to remove a cage loaded with bombs locked to an innocent Iraqi. 
I'll let you know when the photo is approved.

The Deer Hunter - Michael, finding and trying to save Nick, ends up playing Russian Roulette with him.

Thank you, Jen. Jeorj is right. 'Deer Hunter' is out and the hurt locker is as well. This idea grew and at the third poll suggestion the rules were worked out. There are only 2 movies featured twice at this poll series, from poll three on there are no movies picked up twice by scene. I'll take the  other two you suggested into consideration.

Jen:

For 'Defiance' it's ok for me, when you find right images for these scenes you describe, I'll put it to the list. Except the case one other I promised it, will get his/her image for the text and the text earlier online. There are just a few slots remaining to be filled. The rule of GS and IMDb says 35. The one who reacts more fast gets his suggestion on my list, except I truly feel the other suggestion is better. As I don't know the movie by haven't watch it, I'll try to understand, if the scene is more acceptable. When the image for 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence' is approved, let me know. So I will consider it.

Sorry, I misunderstood the note about those titles not being eligible.

You should double-check all four previous polls - not all of them have all the links to the others. Can you can go ahead and put them into this one.

Row vs. series?

FYC:
WarGames - with the entire world on the brink of annihilation, David must "teach" Joshua that there are no winners in war.

WarGames 1983


WarGames 1983

Heh...online looking for a better photo and one comes up with the description: "This is the film's tensest scene."

Other photos still in progress. Cheers.

Hello, Jen. :D
Thank you for suggesting. I know, I declared the "cold war" as ok for this list. The main question is, if this is close enough to the other movies on that list. If enough people think it is, I will put it on the list, but I for myself got mixed feelings about it. Even if I really like that movie. :)

Btw: Thank you for putting the most fitting image for the scene here. I like that. :)
And not all of these polls are induced by me. The first two were a project by
Kyle Perez and SventhAr7, I just got involved by my personal interest in it. It grew since then.

Thank you for the images, Jen. That's nice of you but a little late. I just saw this became already the poll. I would ask for a repush for 'Defiance' and 'Merry X-Mas, Mr. Lawrence'. But I now none of them two and don't know what to write for the scene you want me to put on the list. What are these scenes about?

Sorry that I'm a little rare last times. I'm on vacation and try to manage the time as restorative and relaxing as it can be. So I try to hear Beethoven's symphonies up and down, sometimes watching a movie. Not moving to fast, slow a little down. Just hanging around. But I will come back soon with new ideas and maybe some postings. Thank you all for supporting this poll. :D
