8 Best War Movies of All Time ...

War movies aren’t my favorites, mostly because of the gore and the violence, but men seem to love them, and I do like the drama. I was hooked on “Band of Brothers” and “The Pacific,” though, and watched it with my boyfriend every week. So I wondered, what great war movies had I missed because I was too squeamish to watch? Here’s a list of the 8 best war movies of all time, from my boyfriend’s perspective…

1. Saving Private Ryan

On this movie, my boyfriend and I completely agree — it’s one of the best war movies ever made. It tells the story of a small group of men who survive the brutal, horrific Normandy Landings, then set out behind enermy lines to extract Private Ryan, a man whose brothers have been killed in action. The movie stars Matt Damon, Tom Sizemore, Tom Hanks, and won 5 Oscars, including Best Picture. If you haven’t seen it, you really should, but be prepared — the first ten minutes of this film are so grim and horrifying, you may not make it past them and into the film itself. If you do, and love it, then rent “Band of Brothers,” a gripping mini-series Tom Hanks and Steven Speilberg made soon after they finished “Ryan.”
