Hail to you, Chief!

I just can't figure out how someone can only watch comtemporary cinema, as if everything before was too old, dusty and boring. Believe me, I have a chocolate cake recipe from my grandmother that she used to prepare back in the 30's, and no modern recipe can even come close. wink

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

PLATOON, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, THE VICTORS , THE BIG RED ONE and HOUSE OF FOOLS are the only ones that come instantly to mind.

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

Oh yeah, add INGLORIOUS BASTARDS and CASUALTIES OF WAR.  BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY was POST-War.

Re: And Favorite War Movies Are...

I HAVE to add the magnificent BOOK THIEF which features a lovely young Quebec actress, Sophis Nélisse which is absolutely AMAZING!!!
