There was a thread a day or so ago where everyone brought up naval movies but how about a story about the grunts and it is a true story and it has one of the better bar fights in Hollywood history.

It has been a while but the devils brigade was excellent! A bridge too far and the battle of the bulge were also some childhood favorites. I remember breaking out the vhs recording my dad made and watching them

There are more good "war movies" than I can throw a stick at.  :-)

I recently watched the 2019 movie Midway and was very disappointed they left out an American hero. This man not only led Doolittle and his crew out of China, he spent the rest of the war behind enemy lines in China serving under General Chennault. This is a man who deserves to be remembered.

The Enemy Below

A WWII movie about a US Destroyer hunting a German U-Boat.  Interesting because it tries to go into details with ASW that you normally don't see with movies.  It also shows the story from both sides of the seasoned commanders of their ships.

 

I remember seeing this on TV during the 80s.  Robert Mitchum I was very familiar with but the actor that played the U-Boat skipper was familiar:  Curd Jurgens.

He was also in 1962's The Longest Day

Not the best, but Robert Vaughn is pretty good in it.  And it's Free.

I was surprised that they covered the escape of the Doolittle raiders as much as they did. This is really a subject that deserves its own movie.

I remember seeing that on TV during the 1980s when I was a kid.  I liked that movie and, "It has that guy from Zulu!" as well as, "That girl from Logan's Run!"

Michael Caine is 87 years old and he's still busy making movies.

Donald Sutherland is 85 and still working it.

Robert Duvall is 89.  Still working but he's slowed down.
