A VETERAN’S DAY MOVIE RUNDOWN

In My Humble Opinion:  There is no way to make a definitive list of, “the best war movies” ever made.  Hell, you can even argue with what constitutes a “war” movie itself.  With that in mind, I humbly submit this list of movies that I believe fit the bill of great war movies or great movies with military themes.  Please feel free to comment below with any movies I may have left off the list that you feel should have made the cut.  Dedicated to all that have borne the battle on this Veteran’s Day.

 

In no particular order:

 

1.  We Were Soldiers

 

2. Full Metal Jacket

 

3. Jarhead

 

4. Glory

 

5. Saving Private Ryan

 

6. Platoon

 

7. Black Hawk Down

 

8. Stalag 17

 

9. The Messenger

 

10. The Deer Hunter
