The Patriot... Braveheart.... I enjoyed both of these movies.... "when I saw them".... but with both I can't really remember much about them today. Nothing 'stuck'.

I can be very entertained by movies when I view then yet forget them very quickly.

Last night I was re-watching "Broken Trail"... the made for TV movie... Robert Duvall, Thomas Hayden Church... this is a movie that 'stuck' with me. I guess I've seen now a half dozen times or so. The acting performances by all the ladies who played the parts of the Chinese girls was, to me, phenomenal. Sometime I'll hit 'replay' just to watch a scene over and over. laughing smiley

Sorry for getting off topic... WAR movies -

For 'entertainment' I have to bring this one up: "Stalag 17".... I consider this 'genius' filmmaking... and without question has THE greatest last line in a movie of all time.

One of the great comic war movie scenes of all time:

  Hmm!! Woody Harrelson as Chester Nimitz in the new "Midway"?

Ramgator329July 08, 2018 06:14AM

  If I had my choice, Spielberg, Eastwood and Tom Hanks would be involved.

  Inglorious B's was so close to being great

Atlantic Ram133July 08, 2018 03:33PM

  Inglorious B's was great early and then rolled downhill IMO.
