Top Ten War Movies

John at OPFOR offers his top ten war movies of all time. Of the ten, I’ve seen only four: Patton (#1), Saving Private Ryan (#3), The Longest Day (#8), and Bridge on the River Kwai (#10). He didn’t put Band of Brothers on the list, but only because it’s a mini-series, not a movie. I’ve seen that one, too.

In looking over the list, it occurred to me that the picks I have seen also happen to be the only World War II movies on the list. (Okay, if you don’t include Alexander Nevsky, a Russian production from 1938).

My list would also include Gettysburg, The Patriot, and Lord of the Rings.

Hey, he didn’t say the wars had to be real wars, did he?
