Do you get perturbed when your iPad wants you to go on the WiFi available? By going to settings, you may switch this feature off. You can easily turn this off in the Wi-Fi settings.

Military films have always been popular with moviegoers who are interested in history as well as entertainment. Many films have been made that glamorize or inaccurately portray scenes of war, more here, but there are a few films that show the realistic side of war. Schindler’s List is one of the most memorable World War II movies in recent history. It shows a startlingly realistic view of World War II and focuses on the concentration camps and the treatment endured by Jewish people during the war. The film was produced in black and white, which accentuates the stark contrast between the way the soldiers and upper level military men lived their lives and the day to day existence of the men, women and children being held in concentration camps. Saving Private Ryan is another recent military film that shows the battle and combat side of World War II, as well as the emotional toll that war has on a soldier and his family. It gives the viewer an idea of the daily life of a combat soldier and the elements of exposure – weather, injury, and death. It also shows the bond formed between fellow soldiers and the alliance they have with each other and to their country.
