Do you enjoy 'military' movies?

As long as there have been movies, there have been movies about the military or/and war. When I was growing up, my parents always watched old WWII movies like Midway, Sands of Iwo Jima and Midway.

I have to admit that I do have a few favorites myself.

A few years ago, my DH and I both read Lone Survivor. We had no idea that it was being made into a movie until recently. I think we are planning on seeing it this weekend.

What do you think of military or war inspired movies?

Do you watch them? Do you have a favorite?

I like Lawrence of Arabia and was saddened to hear of Peter O'Tool's passing this weekend. I like Bridge Over the River Kwai. I really only watch older movies.

I used to like them but I really watched more of the newer ones. Ever since I married a soldier I can't watch them. They just upset me so much now.

I love war movies.  I watched Jarhead last might. I love Black Hawk Down, We Were Soldiers, and many more.

Black Hawk Down and We Were Soldiers are two of my DH's favorites as well.

Military movies are so-so for me. I sort of watch them when hubby does but I don't go out of my way to watch them. I do like Flags of Our Fathers, Red Tails and Annopolis...now if I could just get hubby to shut up during most war movies about how some stuff is inaccurate or this Marine/or Soldiers uniform is wrong I *might* enjoy the movies he watches a bit more..haha
