Well ok, though this really belongs in polls and preferences....
List #1, no particular order...
: "You Sank My Battleship!!", er, carrier....
Tora, Tora, Tora
: Shazam! You're not a T-6 anymore!! You're a Zeke!!
: Taking on a He-111 with a .45 has to be seen to be believed.
The Longest Day
: Your basic Epic with the original all star cast
Battle of the Bulge
: One word: Nuts!!
A Bridge Too Far
: Scheisse!! C-47s, Wacos, and Horsas blackened the sky. Airborne!!
Saving Private Ryan
: Worth it just to hear Gen Marshall read Pres. Lincolns letter
Band of Brothers
: Excellent portrayal of the Greatest Generation
: Look at all the B-17s, even if they are just cutouts...
The Bridge On The River Kwai
: Duty, Honor, Country can backfire if you're not careful
The Green Berets
: Who are ya? Green Berets!! How Far? All the way!!
Strategic Air Command
: LOTS of USAF
assistance on this flick, if they had SmelloVision you could have smelled LeMays cigars, the oil dripping from the B-36s, and the half burnt kerosene from the B-47s!!. Even cast a real USAF
pilot, Jimmy Stewart, in the lead role.
12 O'Clock High
: More B-17s!!. Real ones this time, no cutouts. Everyday turned on which way Toby was facing.... They intentionally wrecked a B-17 at the beginning of this flick...
Bridges Of Toko Ri
: A good way to get a dose of early Navy jets. Mickey Rooney with the original eggbeater is hard to beat too. BTW: Mick has been making movies since 1926 and he's still working. DAMM!
