Ronwall, as far as WWI movies go, I recommend 1917. The entire movie was awesome IMO, but I esp. liked the dogfight scene. Unlike most movies that show dogfights at the speed of an F15, this actually showed how slow the airplanes were moving; about 60MPH. The entire movie's cinematography was amazing.

The film 1917 was excellent, particularly from a filming technical standpoint. If you watch the film very carefully you will see that it hardly has any edits in it. It was filmed almost entirely in real time.

I haven't seen 1917, but anyone interested in that should watch the documentary "They Shall Not Grow Old." It uses primary source footage and interviews from soldiers to show what being a soldier was like --bootcamp to battlefield-- without being specific to any particular battle. It's amazing.
