I would like to nominate Thunderforge's answer to Why are there so few movies about the Vietnam war itself?

The answer gave reasons along with a nice analysis quoting a research article by a respected historian.


I would like to nominate Flater's answer to Why is the spoken German in many US films and TV shows so inaccurate?

This answer has provided nice analysis of this question with three different reasonings.

  • IMHO it missed a very important point, so much so that I felt compelled to make another answer. Still, a well written answer, just ... err... a bit lacking. You could say it was just me, but it looks like at least 7 other people felt the same (if not for the same reason). – T.E.D. Jul 25 '17 at 18:25

I am nominating AJ's answer to Who was the oldest actor to play a teenager?

    Of the candidates, this is the only one I'd actually already upvoted. I'm not sure I'd hold it up as a shining example of a great answer, but it was at least correct, and better than the other answers to the question. – T.E.D. Jul 25 '17 at 18:15
