Veteran’s Day: 16 Of The Best World War II Movies

11 November 2008 12:27 PM, PST | | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s Veteran’s Day today - the day we remember and honor soldiers and sailors that serve and have served in the military in defense of the United States of America and other countries.

I thought it would be appropriate to put together a list of classic war movies to commemorate the holiday…


This is by no means a complete list, just some of my favorites and those that came to mind - feel free to add your favorites and nudge my memory over any obvious ones I may have forgotten in the comments below.

Casablanca (1942) - Humphrey Bogart & Ingrid Bergman, a classic if there ever was one: Set in unoccupied Africa during the early days of World War II,  an American expatriate meets a former lover, with unforeseen complications - and woe unto anyone who thinks of doing a remake of this film!

Flying Tigers (1942) - John Wayne »

List Of Best Movies Ever… It’s Not 10 Though… It’s 200… Part 3

9 November 2008 6:18 AM, PST | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Part 1 Part 2 Part 4   101. The Last Unicorn (1982. Jules Bass & Arthur Rankin Jr)  It’s surprising how few people have seen this. Wonderful animation, and a great rendition of the story. 1982 was pretty early for big names doing the voices of animated features, at least a whole cast of them. But, Rankin and Bass (and you’ve got to love getting them on your list) had been pulling in some of the biggest names in entertainment for years to do voices for them.      102. Last Year at Marienbad (1961. Alain Resnais. Delphine Seyrig. Giorgio Albertazzi. Sacha Pitoeff. Francoise Bertin)  Nominated Best Original Screenplay.  Nominated Best Film Any Source - BAFTA.        103. Lawrence of Arabia (1962. David Lean. Peter O’Toole. Alec Guinness. Anthony Quinn. Omar Shariff. Jose Ferrer)  Won Best Art Direction, Best Cinematographer Continue reading »
