In celebration of Memorial Day in the world of Hollywood, what are my favorite war films of all times? I’ll name ten of them at the top of my head…
- The Last of the Mohicans – An excellent war film taken place during the French and Indian War. An amazing film directed by Michael Mann, starring Daniel Day Lewis. I’ll never get tired of watching this film ever.
- Apocalypse Now – Another one of my favorite films of all times. Martin Sheen in his younger years, plus, a great performance by Marlon Brando.
- Inglourious Basterds – Quentin Tarantino’s whacky version of WWII and Hitler. Love it!
- Schindler’s List – I like this movie more than “Saving Private Ryan”. I loved Ralph Fiennes in this role too.
- Black Hawk Down – This Ridley Scott directed war film is so great for a lot of reasons. Love this movie.
- The Hurt Locker – Great film by Kathryn Bigelow that scored her an Oscar award which is well deserved.
- M*A*S*H – The movie directed by Robert Altman and stars Donald Sutherland. This is the movie that started the legendary sitcom. I’ve always loved the movie more than the TV show.
- Rambo: First Blood Part II – The only Rambo film that can actually be considered a war film. This is the best Rambo movie, in my opinion.
- Glory – Starring Matthew Broderick and Morgan Freeman, another one of my favorite war films.
- Platoon – Back when Charlie Sheen was great.
I know there’s a bunch more, but these are my favorites.
