May is Military Appreciation Month. It would be a great time to honor our heros AND catch up on some awesome war movies this weekend.
Military Appreciation Month got off to a bang with our heros taking out Public Enemy #1. Hollyweird has honored our guys and gals who serve the Red, White, and Blue with some great movies. Here are a few off the top of my head that show the USA at it’s best!
Saving Private Ryan. I’m a huge WWII buff, so this one is always near the top of my list. The D-Day opening scene are still some of the most intense, realistic 20 minutes I’ve ever seen on film.
Black Hawk Down. Another rescue mission forTom Sizemore (he was in ‘Saving Private Ryan’), and another amazing movie from Ridley Scott.
The Patriot. A lot of people like Mel Gibsons other historic war movie Braveheart better, but this blood and guts Revolutionary War movie wins hands down for me!
Top Gun. Ariel Dog Fights for us, shirtless beefcake volleyball for the ladies. Plus a kickin’ soundtrack! Tom Cruise at his best, for sure.
Stripes. Ok, threw this one in for comic relief. Lighten up, Francis!
(caution, some NSFW language)
I know there are a lot more. What are some of your favorites?
God Bless our Troops, and God Bless The United States of America!
