  • Yer Top 5 Fav War Movies (regardless of cheese)

    Hey just watching Patton here, and pondering, if you discount the ole accuracy debate, and just get past whether the movie is totally cheesy or not, which 5 war movies do you actually enjoy watching the most regardless of what some of the mob might say about technical this and accuracy that.

    Love Pattton
    and
    Longest Day
    A Bridge Too Far
    Midway
    Tora Tora Tora

    To name the first 5 that easily come to mind.

    I could likely name Top 10 or 50 or 100 (ok 100 might stretch the list a bit much).
    Life is change. Built models for decades.
    Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
    I didn't for a long time either.

                            I bought The Hurt Locker DVD about a month ago... I haven't watched it yet. I have a hunch it will be in my top five "un-cheesy" list.
