War Movies

Updated on February 2, 2013

My Favourites © Sarah Masson 2011

I've always loved a good war movie. They are so sad whether they are true or not but very entertaining. I love a war movie with a love story involved as well. It has to have some other stories going on to hold my interest. Stories of love, friendship, family etc. These movies really make you think about what people went through during wars and how lucky we are today. So many brave and innocent people lost their lives. Here are my favourite war movies that I have seen so far

Charlotte Gray - Starring Cate Blanchett this movie is based in Nazi-occupied France. Charlotte Gray is a young Scottish woman who is recruited as a secret agent with the French resistance. The storyline is fantastic. There's love and drama and watching it makes you worry for her. This is one of the best.

Cold Mountain - Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and Renee Zelwegger shine together in this film. I love this movie every time I see it. There are a few famous actors with small parts throughout this movie. Natalie Portman being one of my favourites, I think she is amazing. The story is about love and family during times of war.

Pearl Harbour - The story is about two bestfriends who find themselves in love with the same woman amongst all the chaos of war. It's a touching story, a wonderful movie. Starring Ben Affleck, Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale.

Paradise Road - Tells the fact-based story of a group of women who were imprisoned by the Japanese during World War II. Forming a choir, the women used their voices as a way of getting through the horrible times. Starring Glenn Close, this is a movie not to miss.

Inglorious Basterds - Another movie set during World War II in Nazi-occupied France, this is the story of a group of Jewish-American soldiers called "The Basterds." They are ordered to scalp and kill Nazi's in an effort to spread fear.

The Deer Hunter - This movie shows the way that the Vietnam war affects the people from a small American town. Starring Robert De Niro and Christopher Walken, this is a movie that you could never forget.

Black Hawk Down - The story is about 123 elite U.S. soldiers in Somalia who are ordered to capture two top lieutenants of a rogue warlord. They find themselves in terrible circumstances battling for their lives against armed Somalis.

Some other great war movies: The Pianist, Gone With The Wind, Casualties Of War, Braveheart

      Actually, the only one of this list that I have seen is Pearl Harbor. I remember when I first saw it, I thought it was of "Titanic" quality. Not sure if the boss office felt the same way!

      But the for trailer for Paradise Road looks pretty good. Plus, I am a big Meryl Streep fan. She had me at Sophie's Choice!!

      Hi Sarah haven't seen Charlotte Grey yet but I love Cate Blanchett so i'll take your word for it and have a look.

      Pearl Harbour was like the Mr and Miss USA beauty pageant combined with a war going on in the background. Apart from that it was still a good movie.

      Haven't seen Paradise Road but it sounds like another one to put on my list.

      Inglorious Basterds was pretty good.

      Can't remember much about The Deer Hunter.

      Black Hawk Down was good.

      Liked The Pianist, Gone With The Wind and Braveheart.

      The Battle of Britain, The Dam Busters and Reach For The Sky are great old British war movies.

      How about Zulu, Zulu Dawn, Galippoli, Shindler's list and The Great Escape.

      Cheers always interesting, these hubs.
