The Best War Movies
We were out with friends, great western and war movie lovers, on Saturday night and they had just watched TWELVE O"CLOCK HIGH, which they said was one of their favorite war movies.Then Bill Crider chose one for a forgotten movie this week, saying it was his favorite as a kid.
What are the best war movies ever? This can be a pretty wide-ranging question so let's say that is has to actually have battlescenes or be set in a war zone. In other words, SCHINDLER'S LIST would not qualify unless it has war scenes I don't remember.
Here are three to start it off: GO TELL THE SPARTANS, FULL METAL JACKET and MASH.
My review of ABOUT LAST NIGHT is on Crimespree Magazine.
