  • Two Short Films for Memorial Day

    The Internet is an amazing thing. I was searching for Memorial Day war movie quotes (mission accomplished) and ran across an interesting post on a site called Beliefnet. The author is Nell Minow, who writes columns as "Movie Mom". The first film is a documentary about an American Spitfire photo-recon pilot in WWII. As you watch it, realize how impossible it would have been to make the movie without the Internet. The second is a short film set in no man's land in WWI. It's based on a true story, but war movie fans will recognize parallels to an iconic scene from "All Quiet on the Western Front" (both versions). Stick around for the awesome twist ending. By the way, sticking with my theme, the Internet can be used to check the veracity of the story. Spoiler alert: it is questionable, but shockingly possible. If you do your research, you'll know why I chose the image to open this thread.
