This week on The Collision, we talk about World War II films and David Ayer‘s new picture, Fury. Our discussion of World War II movies explores the various sub-genres, the difficulty of balancing revereance with entertainment, depicting war honestly, the development of the genre over time, how it compares to movies depicting other American wars, and more. As always, we finish up with our recommendations.
