Films (&tc) Reference/Inspiration
« on: January 14, 2016, 04:07:04 PM »
I want to try running this game. I'm well-familiar with Powered by the Apocalypse, but that means that I know each one is influenced by its own set of internal logic. That's why the principles, moves, etc. all end up more-or-less subtly different.

I realized, though, that I'm pretty understeeped in war movies. I'll probably end up running Colonial Marines, but Aliens is more of a horror-plus-action-movie than a war movie.

So, recommend me! I'll start the list off with one of the few I have seen:

  • Letters Home from Vietnam, based off the book of published real-life letters. Stock footage, newsreel and commentary, interviews with soldiers, music of the era, and the letters themselves read by (often big-name) actors. Does a great job of conjuring a feeling of the war at its various points.
