    I'm not really sure why, but Midway is one of my favorites. Kinda cheesy at times, but considering when it was made it was tolerable. Check out this cast...

    Midway (1976)

    Re: Greatest War movies?

    Kelly's Heroes is my pick, and the "Burning Bridges" soundtrack is the best of all time...

    Re: Greatest War movies?

    Tora Tora Tora was probably the most accurate hollywood produced war movie ever made.

    Followed very closely by Gettysburg and Band of Brothers.

    But the best war movie parts ever were when they first cut the interviews at the end of each episode of Band of Brothers.

    Kelly's Heroes was done amazingly well, for a comedic/tragic look at WWII.


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details
