Every World War 2 movie

Some are good, some are bad. some are respectful, others are NOT. From the deeply affecting Schindler's List to the very tasteful lesbian porno to that one where a wood pigeon fights Nazi peregrine falcons, the second World War has spawned countless movies and documentaries. This list includes wartime propaganda, movies about events leading up to and following the war as long as they are related to WW2. This is an incomplete list of as many as I could find in order of average rating (high to low), feel free to suggest films I've missed.

Quick note on what counts, people fighting zombie nazis in WW2 counts, people fighting zombie nazis in the 21st century with no other connections to…
