War is hell—but it can also make for riveting entertainment. As we honor our fallen service members this Memorial Day Weekend, let's look back at some of the best movies that Hollywood has produced on the subject.
It seemed more like a lifetime movie, with the whole raising another guys kid after your girlfriend hooked up with another guy not long after thinking you were dead,
Except brad pitt wasn't the main character, big part but there were many main ones.
Your selection is not what I would have picked, but maybe because I am more familiar with the real thing than movies. But I would pick two that you missed: A Bridge Too Far and Glory for both accuracy of the events and the men who experienced them.
that was awful. patton not on the list was one of several omissions.
What a horrid list! Where's "The Dirty Dozen" or "Where Eagles Dare"? Some 22 year old made this list.
what about The Dirty Dozen?
Is this a joke? It's an awful movie!
pearl harbor is one of the worst movies ever made, whoever made this list is brain dead.
Decent list, but where are the great movies?? Battle of the Bulge, Midway. Tora Tora Tora, Bridge on the River Kwi, and the best of all....PATTON. Even Kelly's Heros was better than some on this list.
Greatest?? Decent at best. Over-rated because of the stars in it.
This was one lame ass movie. It only gets press because of Cruise.
