Monday Movie Meme: War Movies

The Bumbles' weekly movie meme. I've missed the last couple of weeks (shame on me!), but it's too fun to give up entirely. So, here we go.

My favorite war movies (in no particular order):

  1. The Civil War (1990) (documentary by Ken Burns)
  2. Saving Private Ryan (1998)
  3. Star Wars (1977) c'mon, somebody had to say it.
  4. Pearl Harbor (2001) let me just say that the only part worth watching is the actual attack sequences. But those 10-15 minutes are worth the full price of admission
Play along with the Bumbles.

Added (because I'm so ashamed I forgot, and thank the others who played along for reminding me):
Schindler's List
Uprising
Casablanca
Bridge on the River Kwai
Platoon
Gone with the Wind
Glory

  1. Welcome back - play again whenever you like!

    I love Ken Burns' work - haven't seen the Civil War though. I did see his The War series on PBS though about WWII and was riveted to it.

  2. oh, then you've missed a real treat. The Civil War was the one that started it all.

  3. Wow! I was was planning to write Star Wars indeed, but then again I chose the less popular but great ones to post. Besides, I know there would be someone who'd say it. Ha!

    Passing by from the Meme.. hope you come by my meme too.
